I've heard the Haunted Mansion ride ending has changed. Has anyone rode recently?

Screamscape has video of a temporary change and the WDWmagic forums are saying so as well. I was wondering if anyone here had rode recently.

I saw the new effect on Tuesday when it was first turned on. The hitchhiking ghosts animationics are currently covered by black screens with video projections of the ghosts on them. The implementation of the effect definitely makes me think it is temporary. Most likely the actual animationics are being upgraded. Rather than closing the ride or having a blank hallway, they can up with this alternative.

Here's a video from Inside the Magic http://www.insidethe...aunted-mansion/

Glad it's a temporary (hopefully) change and that WDI doen't muck up a good thing by "upgrading" too much (like they did with Journey into your Imagination version 2 & 3). Mansion is a great classic dark ride and I never tire of riding it!

I agree, this is a classic. Didn't I hear/read somewhere that they are planning to design it so that after the ride you can (surprise) purchase a photo of you in the buggy with your hitchiking ghost?

I guess the interactive queue had a soft opening yesterday. Check it out here... http://wdwnewstoday.com/archives/6693

No word on the hitch hiking ghosts though.
