A Monstrous Opening

Six Flags Over Georgia is ready to open it's new Monster Mansion dark ride this coming weekend. The heavily renovated ride will begin to once again delight guests as they pass through the world of some friendly monsters.

Six Flags is touting that this dark ride has more 4-D effects than any other ride like it, which according to this Access Atlanta article includes "heat from the monsters’ chili cook-off, an aroma of cinnamon and apples from the pie-eating contest, bubbles at the entry and a few close brushes with water-spouting characters." The article also has a photo gallery of shots taken inside the ride.

Six Flags' official website also has up a video that shows off an animation of the ride as well as the catchy music that goes with it. The above screen shot is form that video, and appears to be of a mist screen projection effect.

I can't wait to see ride video this weekend after it opens!
