*** One notable thing is that the event would've had the park's rides be changed to reflect the theme of their respective scare zones, for instance, at Island Under Siege (Marvel Superhero Island), "The Incredible Hulk Coaster" would've been themed to the Green Goblin, "Storm Force Accelatron" would've been themed to the Kingpin and had heavy metal music playing, while "Doctor Doom's Fearfall" would have sound effects of blood-curdling screams added to the ride. At "JP Extinction", (Jurassic Park) the [[Ride/JurassicParkRiverAdventure River Adventure]] would've had extra effects added to make the ride scarier, along with having scare actors at the ride's exit. Finally, at "Island of Evil Souls" (Lost Continent) there would have been scare actors in the queue lines for "Dueling Dragons" and "The Flying Unicorn", and the vehicles of the latter ride would've been facing backwards.
