A Vekoma Mad House - a combination ride-and-show, topped off by an encounter with the spirit of Houdini.

Must be 48" min. to ride alone, no height min. with adult.


I think this ride is a neat idea. If they'd just skip the whole charade before you're seated I think it'd be better. I really didn't like the entrance to the ride, it's a very narrow, almost clausterphobic, concrete block corridor that was filthy & I mean FILTHY dirty w/yellow jackets buzzing there in/out of the garbage can which is set up right by the door that you hafta stand in line at. VERY poor place to put a trash can, why not put it OUTside...away from the entrance! We, in line, didn't know if the ride was open or not b/c the door was locked but there was no sign on the door & being a newbie at the park, didn't really know anything about the ride. They should put a sign on the door to let people know that yes, the ride is open but is currently in motion to please wait patiently. Other than that, the actual ride itself was really neat & different. I think you'd enjoy it if you just get past the narrative part.
