Take a Ride Through Mystic Manor

I'm back! Lots to catch up on but I saw this over the weekend - new on-ride video is popping up of Mystic Manor at Hong Kong Disneyland.

In short, the ride looks amazing.

Most of the time dark rides of any nature look bad on film.  Granted today's technology has helped in the form of high quality filming, but so much is usually lost that you can't get a feel for the ride's atmosphere.  That said, considering how good Mystic Manor looks on video I can only imagine how wonderfully immersive the ride is in person.

With several trackless cars traveling through at the same time each video is a bit different, showing off different effects better than others.  Kinda like watching video of Pooh's Hunny Hunt.  Here is a link to another video, watching both gives an even better ideas of the experience.
