DDW Pic 684. Haunted Mansion
Yesterday, after riding my favorite attraction with my son, I had the opportunity to snap a decent shot of the unloading area of the Haunted Mansion. It is rare to get a picture of empty "doom buggies" sitting still, but the circumstances called for it. There was a torrential rain storm occurring, which is typical for a summer afternoon in Florida. Because of the heavy downpour, people were reluctant to leave the covered exit area of the mansion. This forced the cast member to hit the emergency stop just as we were approaching the end of the moving walkway. If she didn't hit that button (a garage door opener style device that she was holding in her hand), my son and I would have crashed into a large Brazilian tour group. The bad news is that we were eventually forced out into the rain. The good news is that I was able to snap this relatively unique picture before we had to make our sprint to the Columbia Harbour House for shelter!
