The Old Mill dark ride at Kennywood amusement park in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, is back in operation, boasting a fresh new look.
The ride’s retheme was carried out by the creative team at ScareHouse. The haunted house attraction is one of the oldest rides at Kennywood. It is also regarded as one of the best haunted attractions in the United States.
ScareHouse developed a compelling new design that brings both thrill and humour to the ride. The attraction operated as ‘Garfield’s Nightmare’ for 15 years. It has now returned to its original Old Mill identity and is the oldest operating version of a water-based, chute-style dark ride.
The ride features ‘Hard Headed Harold’, a skeleton with bright blue eyes who lives in the Wild West. The ride runs for five minutes, floating guests along 1,000 feet of water in a trough, backed with scary, black-lit scenes.
The retheming of the Old Mill is one of the biggest projects ScareHouse has undertaken.
