Default Mystic Manor

Here's a vid of Hong Kong's newly-opened Mystic Manor. It's quite different from the other haunted mansions.

Yea Disney never intended on this being a haunted mansion type ride. It's meant to stand on it's own story not related to ghosts and happy haunts. Instead magic, mystery and wonder.

It kinda looks like a Haunted Mansion type ride from outside appearances (up on a hill, dominate position, etc.), but it's not.

Here's some more good info:

I think a lot of this mistaken identity has to do with guilt by association.

"All the other Disney parks have a Haunted Mansion ride. But HK doesn't. Oh, wait. They're building a mansion now. It must be a Haunted Mansion because all the others are haunted."

Could you imagine if someone actually built such a thing on a suburban street?

Thumbs up Re: Mystic Manor

The house has some definite resemblance to the Disneyland mansion, as well as many of the classic interior show effects, but with high-tech methods. But at the same time it also contains "cuter" scenes and characters similar to the "Nightmare Before Christmas" HM holiday overlays. Very interesting and fresh take on a classic concept.
