Elevated micro switches trigger all Dante’s stunts. However, that’s likely to change next season should the ride be rethemed. Laff In The Dark had the opportunity to discuss the various options for future renovations with owner Jack Morey during a walk-through of the ride. We’ll keep you posted on any new developments.
