Remembering Mr. Bones’ Wild Ride, “Rollercoaster Tycoon’s Scariest Creation”
We’ve all heard plenty of stories of evil roller coasters in video games, and chances are they’re true, because who doesn’t love using sandbox mode to create huge death traps?
And all of these tales bow to the greatest of them all: Mr. Bones’ Wild Ride. Why? Because this was a true custom-designed roller coaster ride for the original roller coaster designer which spawned a creepypasta – not the other way around. The ride seemed fairly innocuous at first:
But it had some very interesting quirks. Did he at some point speed up and pull everyone into a wall? No, quite the contrary, in fact. The journey was particularly long, spanning over 30,000 feet of track, and particularly slow, slow to the point of taking 70 minutes, which means over 4 years in roller coaster designer time. The NPCs were constantly shouting that they wanted out of Mr. Bones’ mad dash, but they just had to wait for it to be over. It wasn’t until 4 years later that they would see the exit but instead of leaving they would be greeted by Mr. Bones himself holding a giant sign that read: “THE RIDE NEVER ENDS”.
What did that mean, exactly? This meant that the path they were taking to the exit actually took them to another entrance. Mr. Bones’ Wild Ride never ends.
