Operating North American Dark Rides

This list is not currently accurate. It was compiled over two years ago and is in need of updating. We don't know when we will get to doing that, so if you are planning a trip to see any of these attractions, please be sure to contact the park ahead of time to confirm that the ride - and the park - are still in operation. If you have any information, additions or deletions you would like to contribute to this list, please feel free to contact us. We would appreciate the information.
