Laser gun ride
One of Chessington’s most heavily-themed rides, Tomb Blaster started life as Fifth Dimension, a dark ride created by world-renowned designer John Wardley. In 1994, it was transformed into Terror Tomb, before receiving a second major overhaul to take its current form in 2002.
Tomb Blaster is an interactive laser gun ride, which still employs the original Fifth Dimension ride system (which, crucially, enables the ride’s vehicles to face in different directions depending on the current scene). It sees guests battling their through an ancient Egyptian tomb, with points on offer for hitting as many of the undead as possible.
The ride features some significant set-piece theming elements, including an enormous statue of Anubis. The queue-line decoration is also extensive, with guests queuing around the exterior and interior of the “tomb”.
