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

    If the imagineers do the theming of the restaurant just right, I'd definitely eat there.

    I'm sure they would build some type of Pirates dining experience [besides blue bayou, it's not pirate enough] before they build a Haunted mansion themed one, although I think it would be amazing.

    I would eat there, but I would be terrified!

    There is a similar type restaurant that is brought to mind when reading these posts, it happens to be in NYC and its called the Jacklyn Hyde Club. Im not sure if it is there any more but I went there roughly 6 years ago and the place was just so awesome I ate there 3 times. It is a restaurant with roughly 4-5 floors and each floor has a different theme to it, such as one was the library and another was the armory (where suits of armor would turn their heads to watch you and portraits would "eye" you as you ate), and in the middle of all the floors was frankenstein type show thing going (this is what I remember from my memory) But if anyone else has been there please update or correct me. But I think a similar design of a "scary" restaurant is an excellent idea!

    I was just going to bring this up. I've never been to the one in New York, but there was a Jekyll and Hyde club here in the Dallas area several years ago. It must have been on a much smaller scale - only one floor and three or four rooms (areas), but it was still a pretty good sized restaurant. They tried to make the atmosphere scary/funny to not freak out the kids, but of course some got scared anyway. They had actors perform funny skits and the walls were covered with talking skeletons and other talking items. It did have a bit of the Disney Haunted Mansion feel to it.

    I loved the theming and the whole idea, the one problem was that the food was terrible. We went there three or four times and each time hoped for an improvement, but it never happened. They found ways to screw up food that's really difficult to screw up. I SO wanted the place to succeed, but if you're going to overcharge for food, you should at least be able to pull off a simple pasta dish.

    I just peeked at the website for the NYC location and it looks amazing! I wanna go!

    Anyway, I LOVE the idea of a haunted dining experience and a Disney haunted dining experience would be a dream come true. You all have some great ideas for it too!

    Yeah I remembered the same thing, that the food wasn't all that great but it was still packed all the time. I remember one of the coolest things about the place was one of their advertising techniques, they had a Hummer with a animatronic skeleton on the back "firing" a mini gun mounted on the back while he was spouting out lines.

    But this is a fantastic idea and I think it would just clean up, especially if Disney imagineers got their hands on it.

    What about people on a low macarbohydrate diet?
