Monkeys, Mayhem and Mischief, Hong Kong Disneyland's Mystic Manor
At the D23 Expo there was a presentation by Joe Lanzisero and Mark Schirmer about the Hong Kong Disneyland version of the Haunted Mansion, Mystic Manor.
They talked about how they and their teams conceived, developed and executed Mystic Manor. They had props and markets from the attraction. They show up on the video CAD to show concept art and pictures from the ride. They presented an overview of the ride from start to finish.
One of the most interesting differences from the Haunted Mansions in other Disney Parks is how the Doom Buggies travel through the ride. At some points you are in groups of 8, 4 or 2 then you find yourself alone!
The developed of the expansion to Hong Kong Disneyland that Mystic Manor is one of the center points in was discussed.
Enjoy the video!
