Yeah, Honors Physics in high school.  If I ever have to calculate forces on a "clothoid loop" at 8am again I'm going to bank-turn a knife into my hand.

A lot of low-thrill dark(ish) rides have been repurposed as interactive rides. Essentially they make them into a ride-through shooting gallery. It is a whole lot cheaper to install the guns, software, and targets than to tear down a decade-old family ride and build something new.

A good example is the old lame Flooded Mine ride at Silver Dollar City.
