Interesting! So different from the US parks' version of the Haunted Mansion. It looked like they have elements of Indiana Jones and the Tiki Room in this attraction...
Anybody else think the little monkey looks a bit like Abu?
I love this kind of ride system as well!

It also uses pieces of the adventurer's for decoration.

It is the projections that really sell it, AA figures were nice 30 years ago, but now that the format can be so much more sharp and precise, you can have effects like the Monkey King room.

I agree the projections are incredible part. I did like the singing knights' armors (reminded me of the busts from the HM). And, Amy, I agree the monkey does remind me a lot of Abu. Maybe that was their intention?

Possibly, at the same time abu was probably based off of various other depictions of monkeys in hats. :D Odds are there is the character model somewhere in the Thief and the Cobbler.

Hmmm...interesting. Visually it's very nice, but I have reservations about the story. It almost feels more like Journey into Imagination to me, numerous set pieces that are thinly linked together. Weird jumps from Pompeii to medievel arms and armor to Monkey King. Maybe when you're actually going through the attraction the continuity is better. I'm keeping my fav as Phantom Manor. We do need a first person report though.

I would love to go to Hong Kong DL! I have to agree with you on the story line, but I imagine it does fit together better in person...and it was supposed to be sort of dream-like and magical.

Actually, you're missing inthe video the back story. Do you remember the stereotyped Brit AA at the beginning/end? He's a collector of rare objects from all over the world. You're going on a tour of his collection, but his monkey Albert causes mischief by opening an enchanted music box, which appears to have the power to bring all the objects in his collection to life (much like the movie "The Night at the Museum"). It would have been nice if we could have gotten video of the ride before being seated in the ride vehicle.

wow...that looks incredible!

The way they use video/projections is amazing and looks like it is done perfectly.

Looks like a very well done attraction. Is it me, or between this, Dreams in Paris (and likely the upcoming Ratatouille attraction, which I believe uses the same ride system as Mystic Manor (and Pooh's Hunny Hunt in Tokyo)), and Tokyo's.. everything... are the non-US resorts kind of showing the US resorts "how it's done" a lot these days? :lol:

Slightly annoyingly, I actually considered adding a day at HKDL "on the way" to Tokyo to my trip and decided against it before I booked everything... Knew I should have gone ahead with that idea. :roll: Oh well, excuse for another Asia trip in the future ;)

Indeed, the human character is basically the non d*ckish version of Hightower from TDS's tower of terror. Both go around the world to gather items to fill their home/museum but the big difference is that Hightower stole his artifacts.

This ride is also why I think the little mermaid ride that was built twice in the US is such a terrible ride, no effort was put into it, bad storyline, and it suffers from the problem of telling the story at you rather than telling it to you/placing you in it.

Certainly looks like a cool ride.
There would seem to be potential for some sensory effects too e.g. cold, heat, wind etc. Does anyone know if they have done this :?: That would make even better :)

According to the documentation, they do have temperature effects as well as wind effects for the various events in the ride.
