I don't know which dark ride this is, but it's definitely the work of Bill Tracy. More info here:

I can tell you exactly where that's from: Bell's Amusement Park in Tulsa, OK! In fact, that photo is from an article the local newspaper ran about it when it opened.

Sadly, the ride AND the park shut down a couple of years ago.

Here's an excellent photo tour:

Here's a whole blog dedicated to the ride; the article claims Bell's is coming back... but don't you believe it:

The Phantasmagoria was great fun, & Tulsans greatly miss it!
