I was wondering if when we might get around to discussing the HK Mystic Manor.
I'm pretty much in agreement with everyone...
I like the idea that Disney is trying something different with the new mansion. This gives us a fresh new ride to analyze to the nth degree, and compare/contrast with the classic HM.I wonder how many of the classic HM show scenes with survive the trip to Mystic Manor? Surely the Ballroom (or some variation of it) must be in there. It's a show stopper, and arguably the single most impressive scene in any dark ride. Also I hope they do a Graveyard scene too. I think the lack of the graveyard hurts the Paris mansion.
The trackless ride system is a great idea, and I think it will enhance the ride in surprising ways.
Yeah that monkey, well, I'm not too excited about that. This seems like more of the dreaded "story" that Disney insists is so important for rides nowadays.
The above concept art reminds me of a windy version of the Seance Circle the way the cars are rotating around the gold statue. Now could that mean Madame Leota is not in the Manor? They can't leave out a haunted crystal ball from a house that's supposedly full of various exotic and perhaps magical artifacts can they?
This scene sure looks like the new Corridor of Doors to me.
Well it will be fun to watch this project develop, and learn if any of these early thoughts are correct.
