Haunted Mansion returns to normal operation at the Magic Kingdom

Posted: Sunday March 8, 2020 10:33am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom is back in operation following technical difficulties earlier in the week.

Problems with the ride system resulted in a closure on Monday evening, and the ride has remained closed since as parts were sourced and repaired. The ride was briefly open Saturday evening, and opened with the rest of the park Sunday morning. Some of the ride vehicles are not being loaded however, suggesting there are still some issues to be resolved.

According to guests in the Mansion on Monday, there was an issue with the rotation of the ride vehicles, which resulted in the closure of the ride.

There's been a few weird tangents thrown by that poster.

Sorry, this post although welcome seems a bit off the wall, but a good bump to the thread. :) Did I miss something this was responding to, or was this in response to pizza toppings? 🤪

As I said, I rode it at 2:30 in the afternoon on a very sunny day and it looked amazing.

Balsamic/fig glaze is now a popular pizza topping. Which, more or less, is just a way of putting sugar on a pizza. Not all that different from chocolate syrup. Makes me think of all the times I've been in a WDW food court, and a kid asks to have a cookie for breakfast. Mom or dad, says, "No, that's not breakfast food. You have to have breakfast food, like one of those muffins." And I'm thinking, "Have you ever made muffins or cookies?" Cause the recipes are almost identical. And then it is my turn, and I look in the pastry case, and the muffin the parent was insisting upon, is actually a chocolate chip muffin, which is just a thick cookie. not even a blueberry muffin, which at least has (canned or rehydrated) blueberries. ******* Oh, I could totally see maple syrup on a pepperoni pizza. but only if it is the real stuff, fake syrup is just nasty. Real maple is the nectar of the gods!

I've noticed it being really dim ... and for some reason I've never ridden it at night. There are probably some effects especially in the first half of the ride that I've virtually never seen. If they can control it, it would be a very nice upgrade to change the light level of the effects depending on the light levels outside.

I rode it at 2:45 in the afternoon. Very sunny day.

Did you ride at night? Riding when your eyes are already adjusted to the dark makes a big difference in how much you see.

Has it been down all day today? It’s been saying temporarily closed whenever I check the app.

Haunted Mansion looked great today. The light levels in the entryway were brighter. The CMs played the role better. The illuminated effects throughout the ride are much brighter and easier to see. The cemetery used to be very dark over the last few years. Now the black light effect is much much brighter. The audio is louder. Overall a much better ride.

just reduce the lights, get some staff to wear ghostly suits, and let them work with that to the guests.. remember.. smile and wave! I'm a genius!

Shouldnt be that hard nowadays anyway. With 3d printing, anyone could start to produce these pieces quite easily compared to before. You no longer need to make expensive molds. Hell, you could print to metal.

Absolutely right. As (I hope) everybody knows, maple syrup goes with pepperoni. Hershey's goes on Hawaiian pizza. 🍕😛
