The idea of "plants" within the ride is a fun one. They can either give the other passengers a scare, or they can just be there to rev up the tension and excitement. They can also scare the passengers by getting pulled out of the trailer at some point.

Something that always gets me are the "scare tactics" style scenes. For instance, you set up a scene that suggests one event -- witches, a cauldron, and some torches -- but then you scare the hell out of everybody with something that seems like a spontanious event, like one of the witches bumps into a torch and catches on fire. (Please, this is just an example). A person running around on fire will scare the sh*t out of people.

I don't know if I'm explaining this that well, but scare through misdirection is great. When you think you saw somthing, but you're not sure, and you have to ask the other people around you, "Did you see that?? Is that dude okay?"

That'll get the football players.
