Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion. I am your host, your ghost host. Kindly step all the way in please, and make room for everyone.
Haunted Mansion is my absolute favorite attraction at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. From the graveyard to the stretching room to, of course, the famous ballroom scene — the details and illusions within this attraction are just incredible.
But what if I told you that you can visit the 999 Happy Haunts without even leaving your home?
Disney’s Haunted Mansion
Before we dive into how to visit this classic attraction virtually , let’s take a dive into the background of The Haunted Mansion.
The Haunted Mansion is a popular attraction located in both Magic Kingdom and Disneyland. The popular dark ride takes guests through a mansion of haunted characters while riding aboard a Doom Buggy. The spirited Haunted Mansion adventure will be guided by the “disembodied voice of the Ghost Host” as he is your private tour guide “through the cadaverous realm of an eerie haunted estate, home to ghosts, ghouls and supernatural surprises.” Beware of hitchhiking ghosts!
Visiting Disney’s Haunted Mansion Virtually
PS4’s new Dreams software allows Disney fans to visit some of their favorite Disney attractions without even leaving the couch. According to Bloody-Disgusting, the first round of PS4’s Dreams software included Disneyland’s Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye and a VR ride-through of Space Mountain and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
But now, PS4 added one of Disney’s most famous and popular attractions — The Haunted Mansion. For those of you who own a PS4, you can now experience the entire ride through of Haunted Mansion in VR. If you don’t have a PS4, check out this YouTube video of the ride through below.
