    Talking Haunted Mansion - new effects are coming

    I have just read online that besides the new multi-stairwell addition is not just the only new effect coming unique to WDW's mansion. It was reported by Screamscape that there will be a brand new shadow and footstep effects added to this mansion not seen in any other versions of the ride. This site is also mentioning those other additions that many sites are reporting:

    The list of new effects being added includes replacing the old Leota, a bit of work in the Ballroom scene, all new Graveyard props and a new bride in the attic. (I’m guessing this may be the same Black Widow bride added to Disneyland about a year ago.) Apparently they’ve also installed a couple of brand new shadow and footstep effects not seen anywhere else yet that has made the Disneyland crews jealous.

    Well, at least WDW does second gates better...

    Anyway, those new effects sound pretty cool and I'll be pretty happy if they do materialize. Fingers crossed...

    I thought I would never read those words. Disneyland jealous of WDW. But it's about time they do get a little jealous.

    Oh please! Don't get that pot stirred up again!

    Obviously, I'm a Disneylander, but I visit WDW at least once a year (and I LOVE it!) This just makes the trip that much sweeter!
    I want my cake back!

    it's good that WDW is trying to get back on the ball to compete with DL again.

    Re: Haunted Mansion - new effects are coming

    well its about time we get some stuff unique to WDW and not just a clone of the DL version...

    I want people to compare the 2 and say that the WDW version is better, because all I ever here is "oh the DL version of this is better"

    Mod Note:

    Lets not. Any time around here we start comparing the two parks and people start picking one over the other as being "better" it quickly goes down hill into fights, arguements and name calling.

    Please keep the thread on topic and the topic is the new effects happening at HM at WDW, without a lot of comparisons between the two.

    Re: Haunted Mansion - new effects are coming

    It just seems like this place is getting nastier all the time ... I don't quite get that.

    I just read another thread on this that was closed.

    FWIW, there are plenty of new effects coming to Mansion (many posted here already, and a few 'surprises' which hopefully won't get cut) ... but I really wonder why people have to know every detail before the attraction (heck any attraction) opens. It does kind of ruin the fun a bit ... and is a bit obsessive.

    The most important thing is the Mansion is finally getting the work it so desperately needs. It is being plussed. And it will be open in mid-Sept for everyone to enjoy.

    To go back and forth over what site reported what first or what detail is being left out is just a waste of a lot of time.
