Trimper's Haunted House is almost a half-century old and has undergone some significant transformations since its inception in 1964. Many original Bill Tracy stunts have been retired from the ride due to age, vandalism, maintenance requirements, and overall quality. The need to continually impress the general public with new effects has made the removal of some classic inevitable. The following are the major effects that have been retired from the ride. They will surely live on in our memories!

Below are stunts that I feel are endangered, meaning they are on the cusp of being retired permanently. Many of these stunts still reside in some form in the attraction, but have been moved from their original location, neglected, and or forgotten.

Birthday Party


NOTE: The figure was removed from the box in the early 2000s but still exists near the Electric Chair.
