A minor but impressive updated: The singing busts in the graveyard of the haunted Mansion have had their projections altered to improve the effect. Attractions Magazine brings us this videos via Youtube.
First reports coming back from the refurbished Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom park are all positive. The wait time has been relatively bearable, somewhat in part to a newly installed awning that actually covers the width of the queue.
Other improvements include fully renewed sound systems (who knew Haunted Mansion had bass?) new lighting and some great new special FX. A warning for the folks with little ones: The new stretching room has loud thunder and the hanging body is blatantly clear. It scared some of the small fries on our recent visits, more then the old version did.
The Haunted Mansion ride at the Magic Kingdom is getting its final touches to reopen later this week at the Magic Kingdom.
A fresh coat of paint gives the Mansion a umm.. freshly worn look? Regardless, it looks the way it’s supposed to.
The canopy for the exterior queue should be reinstalled soon and the final signing-off of the attraction for occupancy should go as scheduled. We’re looking forward to riding the refurbished Haunted Mansion and bringing you all the ghastly details ASAP.
Details are beginning to emerge about the Haunted Mansion’s refurbishment at the Magic Kingdom.
When the ride reopens in September, guests will be able to experience a whole new scene based on the idea of endless staircases sort of like the artwork of M.C. Escher. Additionally, the floating head of Madame Leota as well as the new bride from California’s Disneyland Resort will debut but in technologically updated forms. The whole ride system audio is being overhauled in this bi-coastal effort involving Imagineers from both Florida and California. As always, a thorough dusting of the attraction will occur prior to reopening.
