    Re: Why is Haunted Mansion scheduled to be closed on August 27th?

    I make it a point to ride the original version as much as I can and buy merchandise. When HMH comes around I stay away, I suggest everyone do the same if you ever want this overlay to stop intruding for 7 months of the year.

Even if you consider it a Halloween attraction, September is still too early in my opinion.
    Well some like it more...I guess it's because it feels like an "E" ticket Dark ride in a sense of scale .

    I also think it fits because its a Hallowen Version of Christmas like in the movie...so its really made for both Holidays...like the movie. I know some hate it and I get why but I just love it and if the Merchandise was cheaper I'd buy it

    I prefer the overlay myself, I find I enjoy the ride more and pay a lot more attention, and want to ride it again. The original version isn't really my cup of tea, even as a kid, I rarely went on it. Its not bad, some of us just like the overlay better.

    Not that I don't like NBC because I do, I also like the song "It's raining men". What do these two things have in common? They are both things I like that have no place in the Haunted Mansion.

    Seven months ? I get the feeling of people who leave their Christmas lights up all year.

    Halloween Time starts on Sept. 14, so HMH is expected to open on the 14th.

    I like the NBC overlay, my son is a big fan of he film, loved the Christmas overlay. How different is the Christmas vs Halloween overlay?

    Yes. The long period of time the overlay is up is what most people have a problem with.

    Interesting responses! But, the truth is, well executed holiday overlays bring interest to aging rides. People will always have their preferences - but it's not a BAD thing many prefer the overlay, and many others are thrilled when it is returned to its original state. I love HMH even more knowing that it hasn't permenantly displaced the original ride.

    It stays the same...nothing is changed from Halloween to Christmas
