Funny thing: just when this thread got bumped back up, I finished my training to operate the new Ghost Train called "Kyöpelinvuoren Hotelli". Kyöpelinvuori is the living place of witches and Hotelli mean Hotel (you guessed it!). There are always 2 people operating with one as operator and one in the platform loading the cars.
The cars hold 4 people with wind effects, backpokes and vibrating seats for every person. The effects nullify the "close my eyes and ears" -manouveur often seen done by the scared because you can't block out the sense of touch! But they do their job and sometimes manage to scare me too
What I especially like about the ride are the sounds! The ambience playing in the housed queue and platform as well as inside the ride are very well made, and the same applies to the effects inside. I won't spoil them all but my favourites are a pair of duelling witches battling over the ownership of the hotel as well as two witches bathing in a sauna (adding a Finnish touch
However I've heard mixed reviews from the GP. Some say it's boring and that there's too much "nothing is happening" -moments, but I think it's also worth mentioning that the queue has been full every single day (that's about 20-30 minutes of waiting, about the average in Linnanmäki). Compared to the old one which had hardly ever ANY queue I'd say this is a successfull investment.
