    Thumbs up Haunted Mansion Light Effect - New or Old?

    Okay well on the 29th early in the morning, me and my brother went on the Haunted Mansion.

    The person who says "walk to the dead center....etc." and rides the elevator with you was an old man this time and he talked SO frighteningly. It was awesome! (He actually looked exactly like the old man in the Haunted Mansion movie).

    The ceiling effect went on then went black and we heard the scream as usual.

    But then when the thud came (the person falling from the rope) the old man had this white flash light in his hand and it went on right when the thud happened, showing his face with a white light. It was so scary.

    Also a spotlight went on a random guest in the room and she started screaming LOL!! (it was right behind me).

    I've never seen this effect before (my most recent ride before this was in early april).

    Could this be unique to the cast member himself, or is it a new effect?

    I personally like it!

    EDIT:

    He looked like this guy, only with the hair combed down, and no huge bags under the eyes.



    When I said old, I meant OLD.

    I never had this happen before. Maybe it can be from that unique CM. I hope I get him next time.

    It's very simply achieved. The cast member had a flashlight and another guest was using a video camera light.
    The scene is intended to be dark.

    The CM had a flashlight on himself, and possibly another to shine on another guest (or a guest had a flashlight and the same idea as the CM). That's not a usual effect so it was surely just a man-made one.

    Re: Haunted Mansion Light Effect - New or Old?

    I saw him too. He was great!

    I think its just a unique CM because later another CM didn't do it.

    I once had one CM at night who completely moved when the lights went out and when they came back up, she was between two girls and she had the creepiest stare. She didn't speak the whole time we were there and she watched us leave. She was the best HM CM ever!

    Thats just something he does, I know exactly who you're talking about.

    We all have little tricks we like to play...
    I had one girl watchng me as soon as she came into the room and it was a small group, so when the lights went out, I walked along the wall to the other side of the room and when the lights came back up she was looking for me, when she turned around and I was behind her she gave a little shriek. It's fun to scare people.
    Is this haunted signature
    actually
    stretching?


    Or is it your imagination, hmm?

    Re: Haunted Mansion Light Effect - New or Old?

    I've seen the gentleman you're speaking of and he is my Favorite Mansion CM... really gets in to it!! Didn't even crack a smile back when my friends and I threw huge smiles his way! Haven't seen the spotlight thing... did the light come from above? That would be the deciding factor for whether it's from the attraction or the CM...

    That picture of Maynard cracks me up! I have yet to see him in the parks, though I really hope to meet him one day.

    We saw him when we there two weeks ago. He looked wonderful. He walked up the ramp and poked his head into our Doombuggy and let out a low chuckle. I hope it didn't disappoint him too much that didn't we jump and scream.(We don't startle easily) We saw him again walking through Adventure Land and he was still in glowering character mode. Great! I hope we see him in the stretching room sometime.

    Over all there seems to be a good crop of Haunted Mansion CMs working right now. We've seen several this summer who really made an effort to contribute to the ambiance of the attraction.
    See you on Bats Day !

    Re: Haunted Mansion Light Effect - New or Old?

    Yeah i got the same exact guy you got, with the flashlight and everything. i was there from tues.-thurs. of last week

    i also got an asian CM for the HM and when the lights went out, he moved right behind me and my girlfriend, and scared the you know what out of us, he fallowed our group to the doom buggies, walked up the ramp to our buggie and in a devious voice said "have a safe trip"

    what can i say, other than hats off to them for a great job haha

    Re: Haunted Mansion Light Effect - New or Old?

    My bro was in the park yesterday and he thinks he got this guy

    sadly, his trying didn't have the same effect on his group as it did on you micechatters.

    He said it appered as the CM was trying to hard andended up just being funny, in the bad way.
