On July 2, 2001, Kings Island announced Tomb Raider: The Ride. It opened on April 5, 2002.
The ride featured a pre-show, monkey statues, a Brahma statue and triangle of light symbols. During the ride, passengers encountered a carved statue with lights, icicles and a fake lava pool with water.
In 2008, Tomb Raider: The Ride became The Crypt. This led to the removal of everything from the film. A gargoyle-like creature animatronic would take the pre-show's former place. Techno music also replaced the Tomb Raider soundtrack.
In 2009, the music was swapped to drums. The next year in 2010, it was changed to various songs from Midnight Syndicate. A year after that, the Crypt would receive new upgrades. This included new music from the Inception movie, the return of the lava pit lights and lights on the statue.
On January 20, 2012, Kings Island announced that The Crypt would never reopen.
