very cool, thanks for sharing!
Hurray for doing things right! This is the step that Disney has needed to take for over a decade. Might be even worth traveling to HK for.
That looks far better than I thought it would!
I'm excited about Danny Elfman. His work can be hit or miss for me, not as instantly likeable as some other composers, but when he nails it, he nails it. Like the Simpsons theme for instance.
Hold the phone! Danny Elfman?! Music?! Manor!? Why didn't I hear about this! AHHHHH I love Danny Elfman! Wow, ok, I may just have to go to HK now!
NICE thanks for sharing!
Looks like Disney is serious towards HKDLs development if they decide to bring an acclaimed composer such as D.F to compose the score for a ride they don't know will be successful given locals haven't as yet adjusted to Disney. I hope the tune sticks to the locals and becomes a hit like 'Grim Grinning Ghosts' is.
Great stuff, thanks for posting. I thought I was going to be in Hong Kong in April, but will be in Shanghai instead. I will definitely be there when this attraction opens, can't wait!
Looks like the Manor could very well shape up to be one of the stars of the show at Hong Kong Disneyland.
I'm still hoping they can add a nod to Grim Grinning Ghosts somewhere - perhaps in the music box?
I think given Elfman's self-proclaimed love for the Haunted Mansion, it would be disappointing not get a nod or two.
The model at :09 seems to show a bust that reminds me of one of the graveyard busts. Maybe there will be a nod?
Also, the ride is only 4:30 minutes long? Seems a little short, no? Still, exciting to hear Danny Elfman is involved!
Glad to see all of the images and models all still suggest the use of the trackless ride system. Some were fearful that it would get cut down to something less exciting like an Omnimover.
