"There are 999 happy haunts in the Haunted Mansion…but there is always room for one more!"
The Haunted Mansion takes the idea of a haunted house to a new level. You start the ride in a recently updated interactive queue area. A butler or maid of the mansion will great you and escort you to the library, or the "stretching room".
You then move on through to the boarding area where you board a "Doom Buggy", a 2 seater ride car that will take you on a tour around the Haunted Mansion. The ride features fantastic special effects such as the duellers in the ballroom. You'll want to keep your eyes open to notice all the tiny details that have been put into this attraction.
Whilst the ride isn't designed to be ,very young children may find some parts a little too scary. It is however within keeping of Disney's comic representation. At the end of the ride in the 'Hitchhiking Ghost' scene, your Doom Buggy will appear to be boarded by real ghosts that will follow you home!
The Haunted Mansion is not to be missed, its a great attraction that highlights just how much care and attention goes into all the attractions that Disney create.
