Challenge of Tutankhamon

I found an awesome video of the Challenge of Tutankhamen at Walibi Belgium on YouTube. This is probably still considered Sally Dark Rides' largest and most detailed dark ride. After watching it it reminded me that when this was built (2003), I wanted to know a lot more about it but never found the info online. So I went digging.

I'm quite a fan of dark rides in general, and Europe is so filled with them it in turns fills me with envy. Challenge of Tut is a pretty darn cool one.

I found a site that has a ton of concept artwork for the ride such as this:
The entire series was put online by ParkFun World and can be seen here.

ParkFun World also has a massive amount of awesome construction pictures and more on their special Challenge of Tut page. Check it out!
