While the voyage through the courtyard was eliminated after the 1999 season and its stunts removed well before that, Spook-A-Rama still pays homage to that one-of-a-kind trek.

Riders travel about 20-feet into the former courtyard, venturing onto another piece of history, the last remaining segment of "boardwalk", wooden planking that recalls the traditional material that the ride track was originally built upon.
A bit of informative entertainment is visible while riders are out under the sun, or stars: a sign documenting Spook-A-Rama's historic 1955 installation.

After the turnaround comes another sign that harkens back to the walls of the old Feltman building that once stood there, warning riders of the danger of poison ivy – a patch of greenery growing through the fence added by Stacy Vourderis.

After the Pretzel car passes the "Ivy Wall" and makes its way towards the entrance, riders enjoy a display of creepy murals as well as old family portraits in which various relatives morph into fiendish creatures just as the car passes them.

The original Spook-A-Rama eyeball ornamentation on both the entrance and exit doors has been lovingly maintained.

Shortly after passing through two sets of double-doors, you are greeted by the man who refused to be exorcised by Hurricane Sandy, El Diablo. The flood was not mightier than his sword and he lays down a two-hander very close to the riders’ head, setting the tone for the full-round of jolts yet to come.
