An enclosed roller coaster is one which is built inside a structure intended solely for the ride. Often, the structure has a theme or houses special effects. Enclosed roller coasters are often ridden in almost or complete darkness.
Enclosed roller coasters are easily confused with indoor roller coasters. Enclosed roller coasters are housed in a building built specifically for the ride, whereas indoor roller coasters are housed in a building unrelated to the ride.
