How people actually do this for real is beyond me.
So this would be a safe version where the bus is actually
attached to a suitably hidden rail, but the bus would
lurch and heave as it moved up the mountain towards
the destination, a big haunted castle themed amusement
park / hotel.
would be vampires, monsters, creepy creatures
that served your every need.
After your harrowing trip why not have a Type 0 cocktail
(a Bloody Mary) in the Bat's and Ghoul's Bar overlooking
the villages below.
You might be able to build this mountain top theme hotel
on cheap land because it would not be reachable by a
It would also feature spectacular views.

Your FINAL... destination...

||I dunno, [doc]. I think the reason that road is scary is that it
_is_ dangerous. Put it in an amusement park where you know
it's safe, and what would it achieve?
||And since you're really hanging over a several hundred
foot cliff, how do you know that the ride didn't just come
off its rails and you're about to fall for real?
||The tour guide would be instructed to laugh and make
jokes until one point where they say "OH MY GOD! WHAT
WAS THAT! WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!".
||Plus you arrive at a spooky castle and get vampire
themed cocktails and
gore themed finger foods. Like chicken fingers shaped
like cut off human fingers in a delicious blood red dipping
sauce, so you're like a vampire or flesh eating zombie or
||Hmm. Perhaps I am too jaded and/or have too much faith in
engineers. As for castles - why do they always get such a bad
rap? Parts of Germany are absolutely awash with castles (one
on every hilltop in some places), and they're generally quite
agreeable and have gift shops. Today's spooky places are
innocuous-looking office buildings.
||I'm so there. But then, you knew I would be. Thrillist that I
am. Let's go, Max. I'll hold your hand.
||That's the best offer I've had in a while.
||The more I think about this the more I like it. They have
the haunted hotels at Disneyland and everybody loves
those, I think a horror themed luxury hotel you actually
got to stay in would be wildly popular.
||The staff would be versed in approximately 1,000 puns for
every interaction with the guests. Stupid stuff like "Be
sure to try the BooBerry Breakfast Pancakes, to not try
them would be a GRAVE mistake." The dumber the better.
"Fang you... I mean, thank you for your order."
||I'm going to build this place.
||No I'm not. But it was a fun dream for approximately one
half a second.
||A theme park based on hb ideas would be quite a thing.
||In a slight tangent, I may be in Phnom Penh this
year, and the hotel's promo goes "very close to
genocide museum". Am I the only person that
finds that a bit off-putting?
||Are they referring to physical proximity or similarity?
||not___morrison, I would switch hotels, pronto.
