The Crypt

The current version of this description is at The Crypt.

NOTE: This ride is going to be transformed into The Crypt: Firefall with Fire Effects, New Decor, and The soundtrack from The Crypt in Kings Dominion and Firefall in California's Great America. But as of Summer 2009 it is mainly a spin ride in near total darkness.

An ancient themed top spin ride which was formerly known as Tomb Raider: The Ride. After Kings Island was given to Cedar Fair, the rights to the Tomb Raider movies vanished. This means if any of the original music and details had something to do with any of the Tomb Raider movies, they must be taken away. That is also why the name had been changed to its current name The Crypt.
In the original ride, riders wait in a mysterious cave queue which is where you watch a short pre-show before getting on the massive gondola. You are raised up and a God holding two gems for fire and ice encounters you. The gondola hurls you towards piercing icicles. Than you are warmed up upside down over bubling lava and finally you encounter an erupting volcano until the ride ends.
