    Forget NBC? No problem.

    I'd be more than happy to see something like Carson Mansion in the park, sans pre-existing characters, with an original attraction inside.

    Good point, but it's lost.

    If Grizzly River Run could present a historical show about logging and mining, or had a fun element like BEARS (see HKDL's Grizzly Mtn.) or anything besides the "cool" "hip" "modern" and "edgy" whitewater rafter theme, it would be a step up. You realize this, too, don't you?

    Good imagineers throw out what they don't like and recycle what they do like.

    I saw Carson Mansion as a possible attraction building long before Imagineers released plans for Mystic Manor. Without experiencing this new attraction for myself, I can't tell if it's going to be something all new and totally different from anything else we've seen before, or if it would be a cross of HM and ToT, which we already have.

    Those pictures are crazy! The hallway would definitely be a creepy scene.

    Re: Carson Mansion: Mystic Manor for DCA?

    From the various pictures the entire place looks amazing... from a preservationist standpoint I'm not sure if the property's ownership being private is a good thing or a bad thing... It sucks that its used as a carrot to draw unsuspecting tourists to Eureka. The city does an amazing job of advertising everything about it except the fact that it's private property and you can't get any closer then the perimeter fence! I for one am grateful that the estate is being preserved, and that the club was nice enough to provide pictures of the estate for the public to enjoy. At the same time I wonder what people would do if say Hearst Castle was entirely in private hands and all you had were pictures on the internet...

    I would love to see this at DCA! And we all know they do need some good dark rides so I would warmly welcome this!

    What if TZToT reverted to TDS' story, which is highly praised, to promote an Adventure theme to set up Mystic Manor. This could work! I like this idea, but the problem is... it's only an idea

    Ah, but don't forget... Walt Disney had only an idea, once upon a time.

    Does anyone know what inspired Imagineering to design Mystic Manor?

    I like the idea too. I think it'd be cool putting something like that where Mulholland Madness is now and put a lot of it underground much like the original HM.

    I honestly think it has to be something to do with the Carson Mansion. Its kind of one of those things where you see it everywhere but don't know what it is. During Halloween I always see tons of advertisements with the carson mansion in a spooky form with some graphic design effects to make it look haunted. Its something you see everywhere. I think they must have gotten some inspiration from the building at least. The frame looks almost identical.

    Maybe, but the manor looks like a combination of different cultures (sort of like the artifacts)

    One spire is Japanese (lower left)
    One spite is Russian (middle)

    Thanks Scott. Mystic Manor is a little bit more ecclectic.

    As if Hearst brought home architectural elements of foreign buildings to be worked into a Victorian Mansion.
