Funtown Splashtown USA
The Whispering Pines Haunted Hotel
On Thursday August 3rd Funtown Splashtown USA cut the ribbon its new dark ride attraction The Whispering Pines Haunted Hotel. The attraction, which was in the planning and building phases for two years is a first-of-its-kind attraction created in partnership with Sally Dark Rides.
“The attraction is a fun, family-friendly addition to the park that is an interactive thrill for riders,” said Cory Cormier. “Guests use their magic wands to break the spell cast by the Gypsy Lilith who ‘cursed’ the hotel when it was built on her land. Riders must use their wand-wielding powers to break the spell and free the guests who are trapped because Lilith’s magic is holding them hostage.”
The Haunted Hotel is proving to be a very popular attraction at Funtown Splashtown USA.
Four-passenger ride cars will mystically move guests through 14 scenes – the rooms of the hotel – concluding with a final visit through an otherworldly dimension. Guests of the Haunted Hotel will play a key role in the story. The Hotel’s proprietor needs their help to save it from the witch’s curse, and rescue three hapless hotel patrons. As they board the custom ride vehicle, riders are asked to work alongside the professional ghost hunter with their own “Curse Eradicator”. The latest in Sally’s tradition of creating personal, interactive devices, the Curse Eradicators puts the power of haunt-busting in the hands of guests. As they travel seamlessly though each room, the Eradicators will be used to free the hotel from the witch’s spell.
After weaving through rooms and creepy corridors of the hotel, the attraction’s final scene will challenge the riders to work together to rescue the lost hotel guests from the witch’s diabolical Dimension X.
