Ghost Hunt Dark Ride (Lake Compounce Amusement Park - Lake Southington, Connecticut) - 4k Dark Ride POV Experience

  • 2 years ago
The new interactive dark ride by the Sally Corporation has opened at Lake Compounce this past season. Sally has taken old fashion black light technology and combined it with modern computer game technology and they’ve come up with a terrific new family ride for Compounce.

The actual ride is quite long and has many rooms to travel through. Each room is beautifully designed and illuminated by remarkably well-hidden black lights. The stunts seem simple at first, but when you start shooting at them and eliminating them, more ghosts come to take their place. If your riding partner and you are good shots, then all Hell will break loose. The more targets you hit the wilder the targets become. You soon find yourself with hundreds of ghosts to shoot at. At a point about halfway through the ride you emerge outdoors briefly and re-enter the building through ghosthunt4a misty thunderstorm. It is extremely well done. After traveling through several more rooms your car is blown up by a particularly mean ghost named Boocifer. At this point you re-emerge in the station.

In spite of its ghostly theme, this can definitely be considered a family ride. It is never gruesome and is often quite silly. The surprises are mild and the whole experience is very entertaining. The traveling system, though twisting and turning is very smooth and gentle. It is the perfect thing for grandparents to ride with their grandchildren and well worth the wait in line.
