Views of Spook-A-Rama Track Layout
Pretzel ride layouts were notable for their labrynthian track curvature which was as much a feature of the ride experience as were the stunts. Even by those standards, the Spook-A-Rama/Pretzel configuration is unequalled in its complexity, containing very little straight track. Imagine what it was like when Spook-A-Rama first opened and your car was rotating alternately in one direction, then the other as it lurched back and forth, snaking its way through the spectacle of nightmarish sights and sounds.
