Boo Blasters - Photos and Review

We ran into a haunted-house type ride called Boo Blasters on Boo Hill at King's Island, and it turns out Carowinds has one too (since Carowinds is also owned by Cedar Fair). This is not just a dark ride; it's also a "shooter" in the vein of Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. My memory suggests that some of these mansions were previously themed to other things (like Scooby Doo), but the Boo Mansion brand is fine, too, even without recognizable characters.

They sell ChromaDepth 3-D glasses to make the 3D paint pop out in parts of the ride, but this is a flourish that you don't have to experience.

The ride is pretty fun. What do you think? Does it look like a quality themed ride?
