Miracle Strip Gone but not forgotten

The Haunted Castle
Built by Bill Tracy in 1965, a campy haunted house ride shaped like a castle with a dead tree outside of it that ran two-seater cars through a maze of track showing off several morbid attractions; the electrocution of a dummy inmate, dismemberment, spiders and lots of blacklight effects. The ride even had a second floor with a break-away girder as the cars passed over, visible from the outside to give those in line a little scare themselves! It originally had a dragon facade and a clock with a 13 hand. It demolished in September 2009.

My wife and I were lucky enough to go the week before the final closing!

Yes it was a longer ride. It was a double story. You started on the lower level ... wound up going up a ramp during the ride. Then came back down by the ride exit.

So after digging deep I found the interior shots that I had. Now remember the Flash really kills the shock value of these as they aren't much to look at in the lights! They were designed as black light effects.

Now this section really did screw with my head. I almost fell over in the car with the room spinning I totally lost my balance... It was really weird!
