Happy Anniversary To Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion!

Disneys The Haunted Mansion, at Disneyland in CaliforniaThis week marks the anniversary of the opening of one of my favorite theme park attractions — the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland in California.

The Haunted Mansion, which was under development for 15 years, officially opened to the public at the Anaheim, CA, theme park on August 12, 1969, and marked the first attraction developed and opened without Walt Disney, who had died in 1966.

Visitors to the attraction board a Doom Buggy inside this spooky mansion, located in the park’s New Orleans Square section, where 999 happy haunts live out their posthumous lives, and are pone to hitchhiking!

Last month at Comic-Con in San Diego, filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro announced that he’d be doing a big-screen adaptation of the Haunted Mansion attraction, but unlike the 2003 Eddie Murphy movie of the same name, Del Toro’s version will actually be frightening.

After the Con, I extended my trip for a few days to go to the Disneyland Resort, where GoD’s Dave3 and I met up with /Film’s Peter and Alyssa for some theme park fun. The four of us agreed that we *had* to revisit the Haunted Mansion, a ride all of us love. Fun was had by all!

Happy anniversary Haunted Mansion!
