Here's a commercial from the long defunct Old Chicago Shopping Center & Amusement Park that once was in Bollingbrook, Illinois. The Monster Of The Midway was an enclosed Scrambler ride with some sound and lighting effects.

Old Chicago was ahead of it's time as the first enclosed shopping mall with an amusement park inside. It housed three coasters including the first looping coaster in the Midwest when it opened up in 1975. Unfortunately the park and mall limped along until 1980 due to bankruptcy soon after opening and the idea that the park would get customers from the mall when the mall had no big department stores but small specialty shops instead.
