 Review of Gold Rusher, The @ Kennywood

First of all, I love dark rides and I get very excited everytime I see one. This one is kind of weird. You have to actually climb up a flight of stairs onto a platform above the ground to board and the ride is on the second story of some structure. Its a very plain looking ride from the outside, but its supposed to be kind of old school, I heard. It isnt inside, though. I mean, it tries to be a little, I guess, but theyve paired a lot of odd props and a few modern stunts to make one of the weirdest dark rides Ive ever been on and sadly, one of the least remarkable. You want a dark ride like this one to actually make you jump a little and this one didnt. There wasnt much in it and what there was...I dont know. It just could have been better.

Im a big fan of this ride, Lin48. It is true that some of the props are a bit, um, "out-dated" to say the least, (such as the woman being attacked by the spider, who looks like she was carved out of wood) but as a huge dark ride fanatic, I find that there is more to a dark ride than being scary. It is true that this one is a bit short, but its class and charm go unmathced. No dark ride ever came close to this one except for Ghost Train at Blackpool Pleasure Beech, England, which happened to be a close second on my dark ride list. The stairs, by the way, were made because the original version climbed up a hill, and the cars broke down midway up sometimes. In my opinion, this ride is a treasure, unmatched in the "world of dark rides." Seeing as you are also a dark ride fan, its good to know Im not the only one. Please respond!

Tauren man, if you ever post here again, Im happy to know another dark ride fan and we can agree to disagree on this one.
