Vote of the Week: Which is the world's best Haunted Mansion?
Written by Robert Niles
In honor of Halloween, let's spend a little time with the theme park attraction that brings us so many happy haunts throughout the year: Disney's Haunted Mansion.Tweet
But which is the best of the world's Haunted Mansions? Is it the original, at Disneyland, in Anaheim?
Or Walt Disney World's?
Perhaps you might prefer the Tokyo version, located in Tokyo Disneyland's Fantasyland section. A clone of Orlando's version, Tokyo also offers the Haunted Mansion "Holiday Nightmare" overlay also found in Anaheim.
Or maybe you liked it when Disney broke the mold and created Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris, which sets the classic Mansion story inside an old west facade, incorporating elements from Marc Davis' never-built Western River Expedition at the end?
And finally, let's consider that holiday overlay, where Jack Skellington and his crew from The Nightmare Before Christmas take over the Mansions in Anaheim and Tokyo from September through the New Year.
Even if you've not had the good fortune to experience all five versions in person, from all you know about these rides, which would you consider the very best?
