Paramount's Kings Island's Tomb Raider: The Ride will be included in a March 19 show on the Travel Channel reports the Cincinnati Business Courier. The ride will be featured on "Theme Park Secrets: Extreme East," which airs at 6 p.m. According to a news release, the show covers thrilling attractions at amusement parks on the East Coast. Kings Island's Tomb Raider ride opened in 2002 and is based on video games by Eidos plc. and movies starring Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie. Tomb Raider: The Ride won an outstanding achievement award in 2003 from the Themed Entertainment Association.

Kings Island describes the ride as an iimmersing, 20-minute experience from start to finish. It begins with a walking journey into an ancient temple. As massive stone walls give way to others, guests will keep moving through strange chambers, engraved with runic symbols and debris of failed expeditions. A sense of impending doom magnifies, as the special effects - flames, lighting and fog - and music intensify. With seconds to spare before a catastrophe, guests strap into a vehicle that will take them through several twists and turns in an attempt to escape.

Playing off scenes from the movie filmed in Cambodia and Iceland, the escape includes a near-clash in an ice cave and a head-first plunge toward a pit of red-hot lava. For more information on Tomb Raider: The Ride inc. HQ media and exclusive footage, navigate to the below hyperlink.
