Scooby Haunted Castle Retheme?

Recommended Posts

Me too! I want a Snoopy retheme give the ride a new look! I love Scooby and I will miss him at kings island but, if CF is gonna retheme the haunted castle they need to do it right! I hope it's not a lameass generic retheme.

I can see Scooby-Doo and the Haunted Mansion becoming something to do with The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. It wouldn't take to much to retheme it to that.

 

I love this idea. Although I will always love Scooby the most, that's just too perfect for the new theme. Hopefully they will do good with it.

Since we all know now that Snoopy and his gang have come in and kicked Scooby out of his castle along with his buddies, I was thinking that the former Haunted Castle could get turned into a Snoopy vs. the Red Baron light gun game.

Is it a possibility that it won't get rethemed to Snoopy at all? The Haunted Castle never really fit in with the Nick theme so why does it one have to now? If it's going to be Snoopy themed it will be interesting on how they interpret snoopy into the ride.

No one knows... And as The Haunted Castle, it wasn't necessarily supposed to fit the Nick theme. Scooby Doo is owned by Hannah Barbera, and, as is evidenced even on the park map, was technically part of International Street.

As you can see (sort of), the pink of International Street stretches all the way towards Nick Universe, ending in only the bridge into the Castle retaining International Street's pink color. Notably, this was not the case with Phantom Theater, which, by means of the map, was a part of Hannah Barbera Land.

There's truly only three options as to what will happen with Scooby Doo & The Haunted Castle next year -

 

First, it may retain its Haunted Castle theme, but be "generically" rethemed, replacing Scooby characters with generic characters (I actually wouldn't be opposed to it getting those cute little characters from Howl-O-Fest popping out in there - it would make it a fantastic family ride!)

 

Second, it may gain Charlie & Co. and be something themed to The Great Pumpkin or "Shoot The Ghosts, Charlie Brown!" (though the second is unlikely, I would say). I would say it's highly unlikely that if it remains a ride, it loses the Haunted Castle theme. Cedar Fair isn't necessarily one to call in Sally to retheme it to something entirely new. They'll likely either work with what they've got, or close it down. Which brings us to option three:

 

Third, it may be a warehouse next year, or perhaps be closed year round to house a haunt.

 

That's how I look at it anyway.

I'd like it if they did a ride in there.. Something along the lines of The Great Pumpkin or something, and then turn it into a haunt for September/October.

 

I know that KI closes for like 2-3 weeks in September to prepare for Haunt, and they could easily do it then. They could easily use the ride for the Haunt, and have the cars go through it.

 

Heres a few ideas for the haunt:

 

The Production Line

 

It could be like you are in a factory and the cars go through multiple scenes of different scary things such as:

1. Maybe some kind of Frankenstein-esque monster being created

2. People being slaughtered by machines that are supposed to be making things

 

The Toy/Doll Factory (something to do with dolls and scary toys)

 

Same kinda idea, but its a toy factory and scary people who look like dolls haunt the factory.. Maybe some freak took human victims and turned them into dolls... If it was just toys in general

they could use that jack-in-the-box that was in Coney Mall/Maul this year.

Well, just so people know. KI isn't closed when they are changing things for the Haunt; it’s just opened on Friday through Sunday.

I don’t see them changing the theaming of a ride just for the haunt either. Yes, that would be a cool haunt attraction, and the line would be at a steady pace, because people won’t stop in the middle because they got scared.

The only I see KI doing this is if they had the ride closed in late season. That would require much more work than other attractions, and plus they would need to work on them as well. Just an example is urgent scare, they never opened the right side of Action Theater, let alone if they really had anything to show, just to prepare it for the haunt; and I my opinion it doesn't seem to require much work to assemble.

 

And one more thing, I’m glad I have 2008 on my name, 2009 sucked for the crypt.
