 Review of Haunted Mansion, The @ Magic Kingdom

This is a nice ride however my complaint is that its a bit too cornball and not enough gore. I suppose due to the people and park its operating in you really cant go for the Fulci-esk gore and scares but still, in my mind thats no excuse. I really like the intro to the ride, when your first going through the maze you get to see stuff that Hunts Piers designer Bill Tracy would go on to copy. I cant really put my finger on it but some design elements such as the creaky looking book case, the sleeping skeleton awakening, and other such things. I also really like the shadow effect of the clock hands. It was probably achived by a parcan with a very small clock yet with exagerated hands in front of it. After that it gets a bit corny, just a little at a time. Overall its a good ride that inspired even better rides (Hunts Wacky Shack, Midway Piers Draculas Castle) so I cant diss it too much. Plus its the best ride at Disney due to the theme and the short lines (short for Disney anyway).
