  • [Question] Moving to the "dead center" in HM

    Why do we need to move away from the walls?

    Re: Moving to the "dead center" in HM

    So you can see what's going on above you. I figure since there's a little overhang if you're against the wall, your view will be a little obstructed of the ceiling and stretching pictures on the wall above you.

        It's not just about show; there's also a safety aspect. If no one is crowding the walls, then no one will be leaning up against the door as it opens and fall through.

          That and if everyone is in the center then there is more of a balance of the weight
          Is this haunted signature
          actually
          stretching?


          Or is it your imagination, hmm?

            If you're against the walls, you won't see jack/Jack.

                Because the room stretches!! As the walls stretch someone might get caught in a crack and severely injured, or worse yet they mgiht get crushed if the room were to go back up! Wouldn't want that! =D

                  All of these are valid reasons I think, but I think the main one is seeing the stretching paintings, one of the highlights of the experience. I'm not sure someone could get caught and crushed (to the guy above me) by the way.

                    I think its also because the cast member needs to be able to get to the other side of the room in order to get to the other door. Some CMs can be pretty anal about it, especially at WDW.

                      I believe this is the reason also.
                      Same request is done on TOT.
                      Allows the CM to move around, and I think it also allows space for those who are in a wheelchair.

                      And yeah,
                      you won't get crushed if it goes back up.
                      If that was true, then the CM would get crushed when it resets it self (if you also notice, the HM CM leans against the wall on the way down).

                      Not sure about the door opening reason, but it can't hurt to keep those away.

                        These days I always rush to whatever side the elevator door is.

                          You move to the center so that the skeleton that drops will fall on you.

                                I read that the elevator isn't designed to go back up with a full load. It can drop but it has to be empty to go back up again. So, that can't be it.

                                    The walls that guests would lean on do not move from the floor, but the floor carries those walls down with it, so no.

                                    Because it's two people, not a full load. :wave:

                                      I don't know. I can't say that I've ever seen anyone going back to the elevator to go up. Must be "Disney Magic"

                                        It's different to go back up, but kinda fun (it's also fun to come down the stair case -- ie: back around from the exit point)
                                        I've heard if your alone it's kinda creepy (you'd have to ask a HM CM if that's true)
