    The cool thing about that 3D pair is the fact that the brightness discrepancy between the two prints contributes to the ghostly effect. Cool!

    I don't doubt that it works, but my eyes start to burn and water and now I have a headache.
    Maybe I'll just spend the money on the viewer so's I don't mess up my awesome eyesight (20/15, w00t!)
    dreams. come. true.

    I'm very grateful for that. How horrid would it be if the seance room featured an animatronic Eddie whirling around overhead on a chair?

    Okay,

    so we now have another thread that started with loading area for HM which has now gotten into more like what this is.

    But I thought I should bring this topic up here.

    On the other thread one person says that when you leave the attic you walk down stairs (Backwards?) to get to the cemetery... others (and I agree with them) say that ride based you are supposed to fall out of the attic.

    What do you all think?

    I didn't say anything about walking.

    Here's what I wrote:
    You aren't supposed to be falling out the attic window. The Doom Buggy is simply descending a staircase leading into the graveyard. The railing can be clearly seen.
    If you don't believe me, go listen to the Haunted Mansion record with Ron Howard. Once on the balcony, he says, "There's some steps down at the far end." Karen replies, "but they lead to the graveyard!"

    The reason for the backward descent (in your haunted carriage) is probably because it's a better way of presenting the show scenes. Or because of gravity--if it wasn't going backwards your body would uncomfortably lean forward.

    Despite what a few young cast members and Jason Surrell say, I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to be falling out of a window.

    I agree completely with Smelly on this one, and for exactly the same reasons. The backwards movement isn't so strange: you went down the COD backwards too, and the glide down the stairs isn't strange either: you glided up the stairs from the load area, remember?

    Another possible reason for the dramatic tilt-back is to direct your attention to the raven, who was originally supposed to be the narrator. The curiously overblown focus on what is only a squawking bird is a fossil of a concept discarded very late in the game.

    In Surrell's book, he uses the word fall with quotes ("fall"), thus implying the term is used figuratively. You aren't supposed to be literally falling out of a window, but at the same time, I don't think that you're supposed to be climbing down a mysteriously out-of-place staircase.

    The Story and Song from the Haunted Mansion record you speak of also has quite a few glaring deviations from what actually occurs at the actual attraction - one example right from the start of the record is that narrator describes the Mansion as a tattered, unkempt house, whereas, in reality, it's not. It's actually quite nicely taken care of. And the Ghost Host's narration on the record is certainly not the same as the actual attraction.

    The Record is great, to be sure, but its not fair to use it as an accurate representation of the attraction itself - because it just isn't the same.
