I like both.... but like some of others have said, when in HMH I miss the "regular" HM elements. Also out of all the rides at DL, HM (although PoTC comes close) is the
one ride that the recent plusses really help make the ride "new" for me.
As for which is scarier, the HM is scarier (example: my daughter doesn't like HM, but loves HMH;
ok, really small data size! :-)
As for "funner", well, personally, I think HMH is "funner", but I think this is really personal
taste more than anything.
in the paradise city. were the grass is green & the girls are pretty
Re: Haunted Mansion vs Haunted Mansion Holiday
i like HMH but what i really would like is for them to add more of the charcters to the ride not just in the load area. we at least need a full sized sally. tokyo disneyland has a full sized sally why can we have one
the holiday version really doesn't do anything for me. the ouside decorations are cool, but I hate seeing pumpkins in december. i guess tis the season its good for change to give it that holiday spirit
I love them both equally, though I must admit that if the Imagineers don't shake things up a little bit with HMH soon (we need some Sally AAs like Tokyo...bah Tokyo has everything!) I'm going to start growing tired of HMH.
I love the HMH, it has a nice energry with it that feels like an adventure. The HM starts off very slow and builds slowly up to the point of the Graveyard, with HMH each room, from the foyer on, seems to seemlessly launch you foward. Just so much more energy.
I love the shattering glass, the wonderful colors, the amazing detail (wreaths and such), and the best is the Jack AA. That thing is simply amazing.
I also love the normal one, but it has a very different feel. My main issue with the regular mansion is it doesn't know what it wants to be. Scary, silly, voyeristic, interactive. I would prefer a scarier Mansion with some nice jumps in the attraction. I miss the pop-up ghosts in the attic that would just scream. Those things freaked me out as a child, then they replaced then with the less than scary "I Do!" pop-ups and now there's none at all.
Gosh I would not know.... I have not been on the original since I was a child, and only remember bits and peices (and my mom not being fond of the stretching room ). I just went for my first time in 13 years in late Sept and saw HMH. As much as I liked it, my next trip will be the same weekend for my Daughters 5th birthday and I wish I could see the original again. Oh well, there is always 2008 if I can convince the fam to go earlier in the year.
