In the late 1990s, Paramount Parks-owned Canada's Wonderland teamed up with Sally Corporation to develop Scooby-Doo's Haunted Mansion. The ride opened on May 7, 2000. In November that year, the ride was recognised as the Best New Children's Ride. Paramount Parks then installed the ride at three other locations over the coming four years.
In 2002, Six Flags installed the ride at Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Six Flags St. Louis, with the latter using an existing water ride system. In 2005, Parque Warner Madrid installed the ride (at the time the ride was in the planning stages, the park was operated by Six Flags). ETF Ride Systems manufactured the trackless ride system used on the Parque Warner Madrid installation.
Following Cedar Fair's acquisition of Paramount Parks, the rides at those locations were re-themed prior to the 2010 season to remove the Scooby-Doo characters. The move is part of the company's broader move away from Hanna-Barbera characters. It became Boo Blasters on Boo Hill, a shooting dark ride themed to a large ghost.
