There are some Second Life horror simulators that are much simpler, but at the same time much more, than regular horror games. I must call this Second Life ghost train, The Greatest Halloween Ride in The World EVER! the SL dark ride of my dreams. If I were to ever design a dark ride, it would be something with a scope as big as this one. I rode it two times yesterday and tried to count the scenarios, but around the twelfth, I lost count.
Type: Ghost Train
Theme: Too many to enumerate
Duration: 13 minutes
Area: 7488 m2
Lag Level: Low
My Horror Rating: Ride: 5/5, Zone: 1/5
I calculate it has more than two dozen different dioramas.
This dark ride has something for each of many different horror movie fans. The sequential momentum of the different scenarios builds you up until your break down laughing at how well done it is. It’s free and has tipping hats around.
From the detail and size of the dioramas, passing by how they are ordered, to the angles from which the visitor gets to see them, everything is top-notch in this long ghost train ride.
While this ride is automated in the sense of being a ghost train. One needs to do a bit of looking around in mouse look to appreciate it fully.
For me, the greatest selling point of this ride is its size. Without checking out its size, I conjecture that it probably takes up a whole region.
Now, something that this ride does, that is a new-twist to ghost train simulation. It doesn’t follow a logic rail pattern. It takes the visitor around all the areas in a convenient, if nonsensical, circuit.
One thing that I noticed, though, is that it has a central room of many doors.
This central hub isn’t something particularly interesting, but I really liked how it was used to organize the ride.
If you’re a fan of movies like “Psycho”, “The Ring” and “The Shining”, you should visit this sim.
Did I Understand Right? The Stunts on this Ride Are not Horror Games?
Yep, the stunts in sims like this technically are not horror games. They are just exhibits that you pass with your car, there is not anything to do other than sit back, chill and be spooked. If when you read this the ride is still unavailable, please follow the link at the beginning of the article and watch a video to know how it was.
