A dark ride is an indoor amusement ride in which passengers board guided vehicles that travel through specially lit scenes, usually containing an on-ride soundtrack, special effects, and animatronics or animations.
The first single-rail dark ride was invented in 1928, however; there have been concepts similar to dark rides, such as the first "tunnel of love", which was created in the late 1800s.
