  • [Chat] What do you think the Haunted Mansion would be like IF......

    it was a walk through attraction instead of a "ride"?

    Would you like it?

    Yes or No?

    I heard that originally it was going to be a walk through.

    I don't think the ride would be anything like what it is now if it were a walk-through attraction. All the hills and valleys would likely be flattened out to some degree so accommodate guests and I don't even want to think about all the bottlenecks that'd come up.

      A guided walk-through with CMs acting as butlers or hosts (and controlling the pace of the show) might've worked OK, but just letting guests walk through at their own pace would be a pain.

        Even if it was exactly the same, except you're walking, to me it would somehow seem like "less" of an attraction. I don't know why, but that's my take.

          Its a good thing it isn't a walk through... if it was by now it would be a ride. think of how many refurbs it would need after all those people walked through it and tore at the decor... because we all know that they would

            i agree with this. the only reason why i might be ok with a walk through is because i feel like i could take in a lot more of the themeing and decor if i was able to stop and stare at things. id like to really see ever single detail in there to really appreciate it. but there is so much its hard to do while your moving and twirling around hahah

              Yes, it originally was going to be a walk through ride.
              It's why there are two elevators.
              They would have been able to load up a set of guest, while the other set was able to get through a certain point in the ride.

              I've seen concepts for the walk through and I enjoyed some of them.
              Part of me is happy that they went w/ a ride system not a walk through.
              People trash the attractions now, imagine if they could roam and what they could do to them.

                I don't think it would work as well as a walk-through. With the Doombuggies it feels as though you're floating along, like a ghost, and that really works...and then there's the narration and music with you.

                Having said that, if they ever had a special event where they let you walk through the Mansion and explore the Ballroom, I would jump at the chance.

                  I know many (including myself) who would.
                  The first couple years of the HMH parties (happened the night before the ride opens to the public with the Holiday overlay) they had a party package (very expensive) that allowed for so many people to eat dinner in the changing portrait hallway. Disney didn't allow camera's for that event. If I had the money, I would have done it. I was very jealous as I heard stories.

                    me too! I'm always craning my neck around trying to see as much as possible when I'm at that part....hoping the ride will break down while I'm sitting there someday.

                      If the CM could keep everyone on track and move at a certain pace, then maybe. But that is a tough task. In the end, I think they made the right decision making HM into a ride.

                        I think in 1969 they could have managed it. But with the current generation, I think it would be a nightmare for the CM.

                          Also if your feet were hurting from walking everywhere, you probably would not want to go through the walk through.

                            If it was going to be a walk-through like the ones they planned back in the 50s and 60s then I think I, and many others would definately like it. Based on what I've read and heard about those original plans, there were some pretty cool ideas with some really awesome illusions.

                            If the current Haunted Mansion was a walk-though (e.g. take out the omnimovers and make it a foot path) then I don't think I would like it. Don't get me wrong, I love the Haunted Mansion, but in its current state it wouldn't work good as a walk-through.

                              I first went in it in October 1969, and before that first time I thought it was going to be a walk-through. I thought it was going to be totally dark and I was terrified that I would get lost and separated from my family and never see them again. Up until the room where you get on the Doom Buggies, I still thought it was all a walk-through. Once we got in the Doom Buggy, I wasn't scared any more at all. I'd like to see them do another haunted house type attraction in another park, possibly the third gate in Anaheim, that is entirely a walk-through, geared towards teenagers and young adults, and much scarier than the Haunted Mansion.
