For years, perfume and theme park enthusiasts alike have searched for fragrances that accidentally smell similar to water rides. For the first time ever, the intoxicating, moody scent has been intentionally captured. Xyrena’s Dark Ride features the familiar note of chlorinated water, a thrilling accord of theatrical fog and pyrotechnics and a hint of atmospheric mildew and damp ozone to create ‘the first thrill ride in a bottle.’

You either love or hate this one.
I love it for the idea and for the great excecution but some will find it repulsive and will say that it smells like being and a dentist so be aware of that.
But yes, It really does smell like a Dark Ride and that’s awesome!
You will get all the typical smells that you love about them and if you think it’s lacking something, combine it with cosmic woods and it will be perfect.
For me both Dark Ride and Cosmic Woods have some awesome fragrance notes but lack a little something here and there so I always combine them.
Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

I took this photo right after opening the “VHS” case it came in.

Unmistakably the smell you associate when you walk into the entrance for any dark ride – but not necessarily a water ride! The smell is much more like varnished damp wood and metal hand rails, rather than the smell of chlorinated water or being on a log flume, although there are some aquatic notes in Dark Ride – these take a backseat to the pungency of the queuing experience.
It’s complexity is certainly worthy of praise, I just wished it had more water ride in it, like Splash Mountain or Chessington Bubbleworks – i.e. more soapy, less mildew. More ozonic and plastic.
I hope Xyrena continues to produce more fragrances like this as it’s very interesting for somebody who doesn’t even buy any perfumes, but ordered Dark Ride without a second thought, purely for nostalgia.

I initially ordered a sampler of Dark Ride after reading about it on various Disney fan-sites. While I do not use cologne or perfume often, I was curious to see if Dark Ride was what it was claimed to be. My family has long searched for a way to recreate the smell of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, as the ride is highly beloved by us. To our shock, upon opening the sampler, we were instantly transported back to the dark, murky caverns in Disney World. Dark Ride is exactly what it claims to be, and it is perfect! As a man who suffers from allergies, I find the fragrance strong enough to be noticeable, while not overpowering enough to aggravate sensitive sinuses. The fragrance, featuring a both clean and murky water scent, is pleasant, for both men and women, as evidenced by my mother raiding the bottle to use. Dark Ride easily brings back many happy memories of times in the Disney Parks, and, prompts conversations from people who notice the unusual scent. My entire family is absolutely delighted, and, I’ll personally be using it for many years to come!

I find it smells more like the real thing when sprayed on paper vs on my skin, must be the pheromones! It smells like a combo vs one specific attraction. While it may not 100% smell the same, your brain will still associate it with the dark rides we love. It’s worth the price! I’ve tried other smell-a-likes and my bloodhound nose says this one is next level!

You can stop searching now – you found it.

I read the reviews and was sucked in by the thought that this parfum would smell like the scent I have been chasing for years. Lots of possibilities from other companies, VERY few actual hits. Then I finally received my sample of Dark Ride. As soon as I opened the sample bottle I was sent INSTANTLY to the ride and the amazing smell in the queue. I can’t stop smelling the parfum. The scent on my skin changes every half hour or so, each iteration nicer that the one before. If you spray it on your clothes, you will smell the Water Ride scent until you strip down. Spend the money and buy yourself a bottle. Seriously – do it.

I’ve always loved the smell of Pirates Ride/ Dark rides. I remember long ago I went on an intense search for something that smelt similar, hoping someone out there would bottle it. Didn’t find much. I put the search on hold and accepted defeat. Years later I did a search again not expecting much. I stumbled upon the scent Wizards of Xyrena. The trailer of this scent was almost too good to be true watching it explain the very scent I was looking
for. Cut to now and I’m amazed at how well they’ve captured the essence of Dark Rides! It really blows my mind! ?????? Thanks Xyrena for this happily nostalgic experience!
