  • [Rumor] Small new effect in Haunted Mansion

    I posted this in the Disneyland project tracker thread and seemed to be ignored so I figured I'd post a thread for it.

    I recently heard a rumor that they were testing out a ground layer fog effect in Haunted Mansion in the door hallway. Has anyone else heard this cause it definitely sounds like a cool idea.

    Hmmm. I like the idea of fog. But I can't imagine that it would work in that tight hallway. Each passing doom buggy would create a breeze which would blow the fog up off the floor.

    However, I would LOVE to see the fog in the graveyard!!! It could slowly drift from the top of hill that you descend upon down toward the singing busts.

    I'm just thinking that air currents aren't going to be this effect's friend. But hopefully I'm wrong!

      Fog in the graveyard would be an amazing sight, but I think it would be even better if they filled the loading station with the stuff. It would help blur the line between reality and fantasy even more!

        Fog in the graveyard would be an unfortunate impossibility because of the singing busts. Their faces are all projected, of course, and if there were fog in the air, the beams of light coming out of the bushes would be very visible. It'd totally ruin the effect, unfortunately.

        It could work in other parts of the attraction, though. But I have no idea if they're actually thinking about that.

            Excellent idea. It would be creepy and awesome. But somehow I think the lawyers would think it was a safety issue.

                That would be perfect to have low-lying fog in the loading area, I never really liked that area as it is very plain. Fog would help to create the atmosphere I think they are going for in there, judging by the name of the room, "Limbo"

                  That sounds like a cool idea. This effect would look cool in the endless hallway too.

                    There are several issues with fog in the loading area, too, unfortunately. For starters, there's a projection in there - a little ribbon of color on one of the walls to hint at distant fog or something. You'd get the same issue with that as with the singing busts, so it'd need to be turned off. Furthermore, fog shows up a lot more easily than black walls. That means it'd probably be visible all the way to the edges of the room, potentially making the boundaries of that space even more easily visible.

                      Not to mention that fog obscuring a moving walkway just seems like an unsafe idea. People seem to have enough trouble keeping their balance on those when they can see the darn things.

                        What about outside the Mansion? That would have to work.

                            That'd work indeed, WDITrent.

                              They don't already have fog out there, do they? I haven't ridden HM at night in a while. I just remember seeing it in promos, but I didn't know if there actually was any.

                              Just making sure.
