Back from Knoebel's with a whole lot of pictures! I'll edit and post my videos tomorrow hopefully. Alrighty, this will be image heavy just so you all know...
Let's start with a Black Diamond Update before I jump to the monstrous amount of photos I took in the Haunted Mansion; The facade seems to be done. What work is going on inside, I do not know. According to the map, the ride will cost $2.00 in tickets when it opens, and will not be included in any of the pay one price plans, just like The Haunted Mansion. They already have T-shirts in the Mining Museum next door!
Next, The Haunted Mansion. They got to know me as the guy with the camera. I used all three of my different cameras inside this ride. A few minor things have been added this year. New characters have replaced the spinning faces in the dungeon, the psycho room has a new black-light strobe in it, and the Clown has a new shirt. Spookyrider, here's your requested shots of the Frank and Ruth from the living room scene:
...and Zombieraider, here is the Graveyard Scene with all it's force perspective goodness... uh, spoiled I guess...
...It looks better when viewed in the speed the ride allows you to without the use of flash. The scene is barely lit! Here is the best of the rest:
Also, in other news; the Phoenix still has no seat-belts, and the Flying Turns is still not open. The new family coaster is a pretty good replacement for the old Overland Coaster. It gives a very similar ride.

I love the pictures! I'm glad they fixed Frank's jaw. The ride looks amazing! About the bars in the dungeon, wasn't there a scene change in there after it was the heads? First it was King Kong, then the heads, but in 2009 do you remember something different in there? I could be wrong. That was the last time I went there.

2009 was the last time I was there too, and that's when they had the spinning heads. The new guys are pretty crazy looking. I'm pretty sure now that the organ music is set off by the welcomer, and that there are a good twenty or thirty some loops of 1 minute organ music that can play as the car travels through the first scene. The music changes so quick. You can hear it, along with that awful foghorn through the cinder-block building.
Brandon: The forum has so many new visitors, but so few new posts! Come on people! Let's get the conversation started. Summer is almost here!

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.

Brandon: There have also been three additional mini shooting galleries installed around the park. Pics and information to come a later date at ochh.net.
