    Frogberto's Haunted Mansion photographs

    Couldn't wait to go on the Haunted Mansion now that it's open again.

    I really wanted to get the special effect that was installed by the imagineers over six months ago - the morphing face in Leota's room. This was REALLY hard to photograph, since the effect is so subtle, and dark, and the room is so dim, but here are a few of my many attempts:



    Can you see the screaming face there? It's subtle, but that's why it works so well.

    Here's the weathervane from the roof of the attraction:


    And, in addition, here are a few other pictures from this morning, and as always, all pictures are taken with NO flash, using natural lighting of the attraction:



    Madame Leota (the distortion is because the projection isn't lining up 100% with the face mold):




    Of course, there's always MY way:










    From the wall of the ballroom scene, here's one of the duelers stepping out from his painting:


    And I got a close telephoto zoom of the birthday candles in the ballroom scene (for that trivia question you'll be asked someday):


    Constance, the Axe Wielding Attic Bride:






    And as I was leaving, someone winked at me and said "Hurry Back...!"

    The Madame Leota projection was off even before HMH wasn't it? I don't recall.

    the first time i saw the face on the back wall, i thought i had imagined it. it took two more rides (i forgot to look the first time) to figure out it was a permanent fixture.

    seriously, your camera is AMAZING.

    The Leota effect was working perfectly before the HMH makeover. They really need to get this working correctly again. I have no idea why it isn't as they didn't even use it in the Holiday run.

    Just where is that Morphing Face in Madame Leota's room? I never heard about this and have no idea where to look for it this Sunday.

    Lostboy, when you first enter Leota's room, the effect is directly behind your doombuggy. When you cross the room, if you're not distracted looking at Leota, you'll see it directly across from you (or you can turn around and see it closeup when you enter the room).

    Thanks for the HM pictures Froggy. Good to hear that Madame Leota is floating again.

    Great pictures!

    I went on Sunday and Leota was not floating. Is she now?

    So good to have the original HM back!
