Until the small child undoubtedly waiting behind me begins crying because the "mean bald man" won't let him have a turn, at least.
Does the interactive element mean I end up waiting longer in line for an attraction? If so then I'd probably rather just keep on trucking toward the boarding station. Unless of course it's low season and the wait is minimal anyway, in which case an extra few minutes playing with interactive elements is a fun addition to the whole experience. But when it comes down to it, isn't it really a question of 'is it worth waiting for an additional 10 minutes in line for Haunted Mansion in order to be able to make a few musical sounds by touching gravestones?' If I'm 5 years old, then maybe... But seeing as I'm 50 I think I'll just keep on moving along, thanks all the same...
(By the way, don't assume that my apparent grumpiness means I don't think interactive next gen technology is anything other than a great addition to the parks. It's Disney being Disney and adding extra value and extra magic to their parks and I'm all in favour of that. So long as it remains optional....)
Also, I wouldn't call Ravenscroft "the voice of the Haunted Mansion". He is *A* voice but surely *THE* voice is Paul Frees.
I do wish they'd focus more on keeping the ride maintenance up to date and improving that part of it instead of add interactive elements that a lot of visitors skip.
If there's a coaster at the end, that's the only interactivity I need.
