The Park at OWA in Foley, Alabama on Friday, June 14 will open its new interactive dark ride “Mystic Mansion.”
“Mystic Mansion is truly one-of-a-kind for The Park,” said Kristin Hellmich, OWA’s director of marketing. “We searched long and hard for what would be the next addition to our amusement park, and this particular attraction checked every box. We wanted something new, different and unheard of in this area. It is the perfect family-friendly addition to our growing Park.”
The week before opening, fans had the chance to enter a contest and become the first riders on the new attraction. In the spirit of contest, the day will kick off with the 4 winners hopping into their “Doom Buggy” and taking off. The celebration will also feature a themed cake while supplies last, glow-in-the-dark temporary tattoos for those in line, as well as commemorative lanyards to remember the occasion.
Sally Corporation, the ride’s manufacturer, developed the story line for the mysterious attraction. Each four-person ride car (Doom Buggy) features interactive game-play and frightfully fun characters to “blast” with a ghost-blaster as riders compete for the highest score.
Before hopping inside the Doom Buggy, guests are greeted by Professor Phearstruck in the queue line, where he will explain the history of Mystic Mansion, its curse and who haunts it now. Pay close attention because there are 15 different scenes in which the Mansion’s ghost could appear. Riders will heed the warning of the Professor, then hop in a Doom Buggy at their own risk to weave their way around this haunting yet family friendly attraction, complete with neon colors, black lights, and a spooky story line featuring the main ghost: Boocifer.
The Park at OWA opens at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 14. For more information on Opening Day, the attraction, or The Park at OWA, go to VisitOWA.com.
