    Re: Would you like to see Mystic Manor in DCA ?

    I'd be down to have it in DCA, but having the Haunted Mansion a couple hundred (or thousand) feet away would make a clash in themes, even if they're in different theme parks. If it were to be built in DCA, I'd definitely like to see them revert to the realistic tone they were originally aiming for. I know they went the whole cartoon direction because they want to appeal to a universal audience, but let's face it, there isn't a single dark ride in DCA in lieu of HM or POTC. We need the realism.

    Add it to the Hollywood Backlot and theme it as a creepy old fading star's mansion (Sunset Blvd).

    Your first post and already positing speculation as fact? We don't do that here, at least without getting called out on it.

    Call me hopelessly nave and old-fashioned, but as much as I love the videos coming out of Mystic Manor I'd prefer to have an original attraction that used some of the same elements.

With all the long line standing that has to be done at DCA for Radiator Springs, Toy Story Mania, Soarin', Luigi's, etc., I think it's great that there's a place they can run around, stretch their legs, burn off some energy.

    How don't know how much of a footprint the Grizzly Gluch coaster would need, but I'd suggest replacing that awful mouse coaster, Goofy's Sky School, and as much of Jumpin' Jellyfish, Golden Zephyr and Silly Symphony as they need.

    Unfortunately, the Grizzly Gulch coaster would be out of theme for that area. However, I wouldn't be too opposed to them putting in something large that would be in theme here and would replace Sky School.

    Agree on all points though I think GG would not fit thematically in the Sky School area. Quite honestly there may not be a big enough footprint for either of those ride anywhere in DCA...maybe Bugs Land if you pulled out the theater and rides.

    Re: Would you like to see Mystic Manor in DCA ?

    I think I'm more excited by the look of Mystic Manor's exterior than by the execution of the dark ride inside it.

    Does anybody else feel the same way?

    I mean, an "Adventurer's Club" restaurant in an old Victorian would suit me fine, too.

    Yes, I agree with you. The Architectural presence of the "Mystic Manor" is amazing. A "California Adventure" themed house that comes to mind for me, that is actually something that has some real history behind it is, the Winchester Mystery House, which resides in San Jose, CA!

    Perhaps a museum themed to movie memorabilia of 1940's Hollywood (and pre-40's) that has been cursed by a cursed object used in some jungle-themed movie, a la Tokyo's Tower of Terror (although not the same totem). The totem is disturbed by a foolish crook attempting to rob the museum. The result is a Mystic Manor-type experience where the movie props come to life and create general havoc. Such things could include the famous ruby slippers exploding to a giant size and attempting to crush riders, a life-sized recreation of King Kong running wild, a silent horror film section where wax monsters come to life, etc.

    Since the original ride is in China I would not mind seeing an "American" verion of the ride at DCA

    Does the noise from California Screamin' invade Toy Story Midway Mania? Legitimate question; never been there.

    Design, I actually have never really heard the coaster while inside the midway. You can definitely hear it when you're outside, but I can't recall ever hearing it properly while actually on the attraction, though this could be due to the way the sound in the midway is set up, and it probably means that an attraction under Screamin or nearby wouldn't suffer, though some of the creepy atmosphere would be lost because they couldn't do a proper build up. I don't really critique TSMM on that because the coaster (and Mr. Potato Head as the barker) sort of works for what the attraction is. It's fun, and it's one of the better ways they can make it lively without really doing anything else.

    No, not on the actual ride but yes for the queue. They can make them as soundproof as they want.
