    Re: Good Idea or Bad Idea: A Haunted Mansion Themed Restaurant!

    I'd love a restaurant themed to the ballroom/dining room. It would be cool to have the ghost effect while you are eating. Maybe you could have a mirror ghost by every table so you have company!

    Re: Good Idea or Bad Idea: A Haunted Mansion Themed Restaurant!

    The only way to really do this would be to close out the restuarant next door to make it an indoor establishment - there isn't any more room is there? ToT has a huge area next to it doesn't it? Room enough to add on

    I think they do need to bring back the Tahitan Terrace and in DCA add a Movie themed resturaunt - indoor dining between the Hyperion and ToT - I think it would work well - a 20's type establishment, ToT type decor with movie stars throughout, making scenes and such

    For dessert, donut holes and evaporated milk.

    And please pass the salt and pepper's ghost.

    I think it would be great fun to have something themed along the lines of HM or Twilight Zone!

    Oh... imagine the crying children scared of the atmosphere... I wouldn't think WDI's would make it that scary.

    What do you think?

    Now if you perhaps wanted to plus one of the many already existing dining establishments in NOS and perhaps make it more HM-esque, I'd totally love that.

    NOS has enough restaraunts...there are other places in the park, however, that could dreadfully use more of them.

    It was planned when the attraction was a walkthrough. When it was changed, they scrapped the idea, you were supposed to exit into the restaurant.

    While I like the idea there is not a lot of space to build this. What I might suggest instead is a sit down restaurant over in the DCA behind the TOT. You could do a twilight zone theme. That area has space.

    Hehe, sorry. That is the very obvious problem. The ToT idea though allows for ghosts and a really neat restaurant idea in an area where there is plenty of room to expand. There is that huge courtyard area south of the Hyperion where it could be added on.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Re: Good Idea or Bad Idea: A Haunted Mansion Themed Restaurant!

    I do still have a halloween edition of an old Martha Stewart magazine where they made "fingers" out of pretzels with almonds as the fingernails.

    I'd go for that! Let's see how many people actually figure out it's completely EDIBLE!

    LOL!

    As far as space, why not build up? It would require a separate entrance into the restaurant, however as an extension to the second floor....

    Couldn't they build the actual dining room on the other side of the berm (as the ride is) and have a cool dark and spooky tunnel that you walk through to get to it? I think it its a great idea!

    And yes bring back TT!!! I miss the lobster!!! Hollywood Pictures area should have a Musso and Frank's.
