The Japanese edition contains a set of 10 dark pumpkin stickers, features the tracks 2 and 3 swapped and a bonus track:
13. The Madness of the Crowds (4:13)

The Dark Ride is also available as a limited edition boxset called The Dark Box and containing a mousepad, a lighter and 5 photocards as well as a limited 2CD edition featuring the "If I Could Fly" single.

A two-disc compilation containing The Dark Ride and Rabbit Don't Come Easy (12 tracks each, with no bonus tracks) was released by Nuclear Blast in 2008. On the back cover a 13th track is listed for the second disc, "13. Far Away", but it's actually missing on the CD.

Re-released in 2013 by Nuclear Blast with 3 bonus tracks:
13. The Madness of the Crowds (4:13)
14. Deliver Us from Temptation (4:54)
15. If I Could Fly (Single Edit) (3:30)
