Happy belated 40th birthday to Disneyland's Haunted Mansion

So a belated happy birthday to the Mansion:
Mansion was the one attraction I really, really wanted to work at in Walt Disney World, but never had the chance to, save a few greeter shifts. I would have loved to ham it up with that stretch room spiel.

Standard trivia, but repeated here for infrequent readers who might not know: The stretch rooms were installed so that visitors could descend in elevators to a level where they could walk under the Disneyland Railroad tracks to get to the show building, which is located on the outside of those tracks.
At Disney World, the Mansion is contained within the track perimeter, so there are no elevators. The ceiling above rises to create the same effect.
I must admit, I don't know which system is used at Disneyland Paris, but here's a picture for Mansion fans, anyway.
