Highway Of Death Bus Ride To Doctorremulac3's Castle Of Horror

A safe version of this... (see link)
  [vote for,

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.

There 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 regular road.

It would also feature spectacular views.

       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?

       It's pretendy.   

       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 something.

       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.   

       NOW you're talkin'!
doctorremulac3, Apr 06 2019

       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?
not_morrison_rm, Apr 06 2019

       Are they referring to physical proximity or similarity?
doctorremulac3, Apr 07 2019

       not___morrison, I would switch hotels, pronto.
