SCORES TOMB RIDE

[ September 16th 2004 ]
Hollywood big-screen spectacular comes to life
at Paramount's Kings Dominion with the addition
of TOMB RAIDER: The Ride, a new multi-sensory
adventure attraction for 2005. Inspired by the
popular Eidos Interactive, Inc. action games and
Paramount Pictures' blockbuster films Lara Croft:
Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle
of Life starring Academy AwardŽ winner Angelina
Jolie, the park's newest thrill attraction will
launch adventurers on the ride of their lives.
RAIDER: The Ride begins with a journey deep into
the jungle, past mysterious ruins and the debris
of failed expeditions. As a sense of impending
doom grows, budding adventurers discover an ancient
mechanical artifact. To prove their true bravery,
the courageous explorers are strapped aboard the
massive stone and steel altar. Within seconds,
the machine tosses the explorers 60 feet in the
air and flips them - head over heels - in a series
of high-speed acrobatic maneuvers. Around the
sacred site, geothermal vents erupt in volley
after volley of steam, fire and water... surrounding
brave riders with the elemental forces of the
gods and a thundering tribal soundtrack. Combining
high thrills with a unique environmental theme
and special effects, TOMB RAIDER: The Ride is
an adventure worthy of Lady Croft herself!
around every corner, including authentic props
used in the filming of the motion picture , will
make guests feel like adventurous tomb raiders
from the moment they approach the attraction,"
said Richard Zimmerman, Paramount's Kings Dominion's
executive vice president and general manager .
"With action straight out of Hollywood, TOMB RAIDER:
The Ride will deliver the unique thrill experience
our guests have come to expect for the past 30
years at Paramount's Kings Dominion."
