Spectrum91 Posted June 19, 2014 Share Posted June 19, 2014 As anyone who knows me is well aware, I adore Kings Island history and know far too much about the park's past. One area I'm still pretty uninformed in though is FearFest's first year, when the event was created by Sudden Impact! Entertainment and Kings Island did not play a large role in creating the attractions. As the park took control the following year, attractions from 2000 like Torture Tower, Pirate Jack & the Legend of Halloween in 4-D, and Museum of Horrors are poorly documented and there isn't much information on them whatsoever. This brings up my question - does anybody have any pictures, information, or whatever else from Museum of Horrors? All I know is based off old news articles, reviews, and the old FearFest spotlight posted on this website a couple years back. The below text is pulled from a "research paper" of sorts I'm writing: Museum of Horrors was an overlay of Phantom Theater. The attraction now featured scarier faces on the characters, moments of complete darkness, and ten live actors. While some scenes were intensified, others were simply covered with black scrim. The attractions sound track was also switched out. Phantom Theater did not operate during regular park hours, but became a nighttime-only attraction. In addition to the thematic changes for Phantom Theater, operational changes also existed. Were going to load (only) every other car, said Mark Gildersleeve, creative director with Paramount Parks design staff. It's worth it to cut (the hourly ride count) in half to get a quality show. Gildersleeve worked alongside Paramount Parks project manager and producer Russell Dishman to coordinate the first FearFest. In addition, here is the only picture I can find, courtesy of Dafe.org: Does anyone know more about the attraction, or maybe even have pictures or videos worth sharing?
