    What is the latest technology? The trackless ride tech has been around for ages now in Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea. Oh well... good that HKDL gets some cred.

    Re: Mystic Manor received Award for Outstanding Achievement – Attraction

    I just got back from my first visit to HKDL and while I would say the attraction seems a bit short I really think it is a great attraction overall. I love the presentation of the house and the queue and the ride itself. I think we went on it probably like 8 times LOL. Goes to show you what the imagineers can do with some budget!!!! I am happy it won an award!!!

    I was just at HKDL yesterday. Got to Mystic Manor at about 10:30 and there was NO ONE in line. I got into the first car, and the other 3 were empty. I could have ridden it over and over, but honestly, I though it was a bore. The theming and the queue were great, but the preshow was awful, and the story line is really weak. You just travel from room to room and see animatronics. The technology is sort of cool, but I don't rides for technology's sake. The technology should be invisible and enhance the experience, not be the experience. I don't know...maybe I missed something, but it was a huge disappointment to me. I'd rate it maybe 6/10.

    ORWEN: Maybe it's other guests who make or break an attraction for you. I mean, if I was all alone on a ride I'd be too lonely to notice anything but the fact I was alone. I'd be all freaked out! You'll have to try riding it again when other people are with you--even if they're total strangers.

    While I agree the storyline may be simple, I thought the attraction was pretty darn good. One of the best I've ridden actually.

    why was the pre-show awful? I would expect that kind of pre-show from an era in the late 1800's- early 1900's
