    Screaming teenage girls

    I checked out the haunted mansion's new bride with my two year old daughter. While in the stretching room, a bunch of teenage girls next to us started to scream really loud during the black out part. This, of course, made my daughter cry hystically. Mind you, that she doesn't really get scared on this ride. It typically makes her go to sleep. (POTC does the same thing). I told the girls what they did and told them not to scream thru the rest of the ride. They didn't and my daughter was happy again and went to sleep around the ballroom scene.

    Don't you just hate screaming teenage girls? They just completely ruin the ride. Why don't cast members tell them to shut up?

    Re: Screaming teenage girls

    this has happened to us as well.. ever since THAT DAY.. my 5 and 3 year old are scared to death of the elevator part of the haunted mansion

    this also happened when we were in POTC.. I turned around on the attrraction and basically told them to shut up.. everyone in our boat applauded me.. they were calm the rest of the trip, but during this ride, the CM's at the end of the ride escorted them out.. (I guess the cameras caught it).. not sure what happened to them

    You know, screaming people is one of my best memories of the Haunted Mansion, at least in the elevator.

    It never fails - someone always screams in the HM and then a little kid really starts to cry and everyone goes "Awwwww."

    Frankly, it does get annoying.

    Maybe...but children do get scared and adults ears start to bleed!!! One teen screamed practically into my ear once because it was so packed in there.

    If you wanna scream in the stretching room, can you at least do it when there is less people in there?

    I guess different people have fun in different ways and when it comes to teenagers they haven't learned the filter of "if then" thought process.

    Re: Screaming teenage girls

    Screaming is one thing. Screeching in everyone's ears for several long, long moments is quite another. I've had the misfortune of this before and turned around and yelled, "Shut UP!" but they couldn't hear me over their own screeching. They were doing this long enough to annoy me enough to want to say something and then actually turn around and do it, and then some. During the ride, at some point, I yelled it again and they shut up this time.

    Re: Screaming teenage girls

    I know many people like to scream in the elevator (not just girls or teens), and I do not think they mean any harm, but, I do feel that it not fair to the small children ~ we are born with only two fears (loud sounds and falling) all others are acquired, their screaming causes them to associate fear to this attraction needlessly. It also seems to me to be unfair to those who have never experienced the attraction, it is distracting them from the chance to experience everything that Disney intended them to.

    Re: Screaming teenage girls

    I despise screaming the the stretching room. My friends I go with do it, and I deal, but I hate it.

    The ghost host screams, why do you have to? The only screams that should be happening are the ones by first time riders who are not expecting the blackout and the lightning flashes.


    ...And also - what is up with all of these people holding full conversations through the stretch rooms? It irritates me - when the ghost host starts talking, thats your cue to shut up. It's common sense, but people continue to talk. And its not like its only two people on an occasional ride - I've encountered entire elevator-fulls of people who think this is happy-go-lucky chit chat time. Well, it's not.
    I hate to do it because it makes even more noise, but sometimes I'll "shhh" really loudly to give them a hint. It usually works well enough to quiet them down a bit if not silence them altogether.

    Augh.

    Re: Screaming teenage girls

    Everytime..everytime I've ridden in HM, people scream in the streaching room. I haven't ridden it much lately but people always scream in there. I used to scream in there too. It was "the thing to do".

    Re: Screaming teenage girls

    Several good points yep when the narration begins its a cue to shut up for the other guest enjoyment. Screamming at the end is quite common and not so pretty. We anticipate this and cover little ones ears with our hands for this brief scream session it muffles the sound enough to take away any fears.

    I have mixed feelings about that. I can appreciate that there are many, many fans of the Haunted Mansion, like myself, that know every line, and love to scream in the dark - it's fun, I know that.

    That doesn't make it any less annoying to those others, however, and if you're not in a certain demographic, it can be downright painful.

    As an aside, I always find the sentence "Your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding, almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis", line to be very funny, and it makes me giggle. That's a high level of vocabulary (as well as a very wordy sentence) for teenagers. Who talks like that?

    Re: Screaming teenage girls

    what bothers me much more than screaming is the flash photography. That has got to be the MOST annoying thing to deal with in a dark ride. Not only is it annoying, but the sudden bright light in the darkness sparks a migrain. Scream all you want, but keep your damn flashes turned off your cameras!!

    Re: Screaming teenage girls

    Gotta give a big amen on this one. Simply because I've hit the age where I'm just really, really not interested in people who try to appear funny/cool by doing something amazingly annoying. Lately, the annoyance has an added flair: they shout incredibly stupid things at the end of the scream, like that's some rich comedy riot.

    Last night, I made little stabby motions at the back of the scenester scum engaging in this. Unfortunately, only my wife could see due to our position, otherwise I'm sure I'd have gotten applause.

    Final score:

    Screaming scenester/hipster teenage idiots: 5

    Crying/traumatized under-5 kids? 6-10

    Yeah, good job, emo chicks, you were -so- entertaining.
