Dark ride

A dark ride is an indoor amusement ride consisting of a vehicle traveling past animated scenes. Leon Cassidy[?] of the Pretzel Amusement Ride Company[?] invented and patented the single-rail dark ride in 1928. Notable dark rides include the Futurama at the 1939 New York World's Fair, and the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland.

A boat dark ride is sometimes called an Old Mill or Tunnel of Love. In the United Kingdom, dark rides are called ghost trains.
