  1. Those pictures are absolutely amazing! So creepy, they get my imagination wild. My ride would be a fun house filled with ghostly images of clowns. The price I’d charge? The poisoning of your most beloved memory. =)

  2. Fun pics! My scariest ride would be Devil’s Tunnel. A tunnel ride where it looks like the walls are collapsing around you…for an added scare, fire at the only way out.

  3. I forgot to include the name for my ride – Spider’s Tunnel! I was just reading about funnel web spiders and their creepy webs would make a scary ride!

  4. Some great photos here! I visited San Francisco this September and took some pics of the carousel at Pier 39 but they weren’t quite so creepy. Thanks for the contest and hope to see you again on the Hop!

    1. Hi Mary,

      Your visit to the Pier 39 carousel sounds wonderful!
      The photographers featured here are amazingly talented! Happy to share their work.
      Thanks for coffinhopping past! 🙂

  5. Sorry – I missed the ‘worst fear’ part of the challenge. If my worst fear was a ride, it would be called ‘It’s a Small World’ – oh, wait, that already exists… lol Okay, I think it would be a massive slime coated slide with hands groping you as you sluiced downward in a spiral in the dark. And it would dump you in Willy Wonka’s Candy room, but the room would be decayed. The mushrooms moldy; the tea cups cracked; the chocolate waterfall a clogged dribble; and the previously churning stream a pool of stagnant filth where mosquitoes breed. It would be called ‘Slip and Died’.

  6. And my ride would be called: “This isn’t the end… Just the beginning of a journey to the unknown! Pay the price with a magic jellybean – and open your mind to your darkest nightmares…”

    1. Hi Johanna! 🙂

      Nothing like a creepy, abandoned carnival to stoke the dark alleyways of the imagination…
      Thanks for the lovely compliments.
      Thanks for coffinhopping past!

    1. Hi Nina 🙂

      Yes the photographs are incredible. Very talented photographers.

      The site is fitted for HDR. Just makes the images pop.

      Thank you for the kind comments!

      Happy CoffinHopping! 🙂

  7. Yo, your website is INSANE!!!! the pictures are GORGEOUS!!!!

    ok, my ride would be called: this is your end. wait, it could also be called: this will never end, and the thing would loop like crazy.

    Happy hopping:))

      1. You’re welcome Kim! I appreciate that 🙂
        Unfortunately, I just wouldn’t be able to give Coffin Hop, nor all its authors & readers, its proper time if I participated this year
