When the Haunted House management decided to convert Bill Tracy’s sound effects from tape to digital, several Mackenzie DigiMac Digital Message Repeaters were purchased. The individual sound effects for stunts like the Falling Beam, Train, and Torture Chamber were recorded onto digital sound chips in these units, and played back at each location using a relay. The house sound, lobby sound, and many of Tracy's originals are stored on digital cartridges on a Mackenzie High Fidelity Digital Message Repeater bank. This monster of a unit can actually hold several cartridges, each having its own output to different locations throughout the ride. For effects that don't use digital sounds, klaxton horns and "razzberry" sound effects are used to scare riders.

Unfortunately, during a fierce lightning storm several years back, the majority of the digital sound repeaters were fried, leaving most sound effects non-existent. Today, the only sound effects you will find are for stunts Knit Wit, Last Drop, and those that coincide with the newer stunts, and that live at each individual location in the ride.
The following are actual sounds recorded from Trimper's Haunted House. If you have a digital sound byte and would like to contribute, or would like to report a problem, please E-MAIL US.
