Some guy has put up a small set of photos, apparently about an excursion to Lagoon park in Farmington, Utah, to get a good photo of the Terroride dark ride entrance mural. The Terroride was one of my happy childhood memories that fueled my interest in dark rides, immersive environments, and the horror genre, and the mural, in particular, was of interest to me as a kid. It was just so freaky weird, with its gorrila-man taunting a dragon, the tightly-wrapped-up skeleton looking on laughing, the unusually happy-looking singing man, and the octopus-out-of-water glaring at you. It's so surreal, and yet, oddly, sets the stage really well for the experiences inside.
