Once again, the lunging bat is missing a wing. Sometime between 6:00 pm and 10:00 pm on , the bat on Monday, July 16th, the bat's wing came off. Earlier that very same day, his wing was attached and he was working as normal. After my wristband expired and I went to dinner and headed back down to the Haunted House for another ride or two. As my coffin carriage entered the graveyard, I saw the wing sitting off to the side near the wall where the compressor room door is.
I don't know what exactly happened, but I suspect vandalism, as his wing was attached and showed no signs of wear and tear earlier that day that would lead me to suspect it just fell off on it's own.
It's sad... why would somebody rip off Mr.Bat's wing? He's already missing the tongue that the park artist added back when he got overhauled when his wing got ripped off a year or two ago.
What a bummer. I'm sad!... but, I'm glad it wasn't something more crucial, like Knit Wit or Old Mill. All in all, this is a rather "back burner" stunt in the ride, but it is very cool. No doubt, it will be fixed soon!

HHMacabre: Hi everyone! Did I hear word of new additions in the ride? How is the Mineshaft?

Brandon: Yes, there are supposed to be two new effects installed this year. I don't have any insight yet but will share the information once I receive it. I don't think anything has been done with the Shaft.
