Boo Blasters

Boo Blasters

As you’re making your way down the Dominator Walkway towards Congo you’ll notice that creepy looking ride. You’ll find yourself walking across a swamp infested with alligators, the bodies of deceased corpses six feet under you; you’ll find an eerie home that looks like it has been deserted for years. What will you do? Go in of course!

Boo Blasters opened in the spring of 2003 as Scooby Doo and the Haunted Mansion, made by Sally Dark Ride Corporation. When Scooby ruled the house, the outdoor queue line had TVs playing episodes of the show from the ’60s and ’70s, as well as Scooby Doo and the gang in the Mystery Machine stuck in the mud. Once you got inside the old home, there were short biographies on Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, Velma, and of-course Scooby Doo. The cars were shaped like the Mystery Machine and the shape is still noticeable today, even after the change to Boo Blasters.

Cedar Fair took over Kings Dominion in 2007, but Scooby and the gang were still in their home until opening day 2010. Then the haunted house got a new master, and a new name. The park transformed the ride into Boo Blasters on Boo Hill. The new ride is the same as the old one with updated scenes as well as updated characters. Scooby was out, and Boocifer was in. This change also took place at Carowinds and Kings Island.
Even though Scooby Doo was taken out, most of the other props were left in tact. Watch out for “Boocifer”, he will try to attack you many times during your ride throughout the mansion.

Families and even thrill seekers can take a trip to Boo Hill to see who the best blaster in their group is!
