I love this ride! It immerses you from the queue line with cast members that play to the dark and scary atmosphere, gravestones outside with funny carvings... it’s just fun, although ominous.

It is a tad scary, especially in the first stretching room, since it is extremely dark and you will see a body hanging above for a few seconds. Children may not be ready for that or be prepared to cover the eyes.

The ride is constantly entertaining, playing fun spooky music with a voice narrating the journey through.

It’s a nice long, smooth ride that is always entertaining. I personally go on multiple times per visit since it never gets old. There are so many details to see!

Pros:

Long, immersive, unique, iconic, detailed, entertaining

Cons:

Long lines, scary for some

This ride is always lots of fun! From stuff to look for in the queue like moving eyes on the tombstone, or the brides ring, to having ghosts riding in your cart with you. This is a very eerily fun ride.

Pros:

Cool effects, great queue, line moves fast

Cons:

Could be a bit frightening for young children/people who are afraid of the dark

Ok, 999 ghosts...but they're friendly ghosts! A classic, original WDW attraction gives you a ride in the dark in "doom buggies", passing various haunted scenes, all narrated by your "ghost host". At the ride's inception, the technology used to "float" Madame Leota in a crystal ball in the air, or to create the ballroom scene, was pretty leading edge and is something to consider. Although by today's standards, it's pretty routine. But it's a fun ride and watch for the hitchhiking ghost surprise at the end.

It's pretty much in the dark and could be scary for smaller children, especially in the pre-show room. It's a continuously-loading ride that you board on a moving belt. Again, in the dark, so watch your step.

Wait times can be lengthy, so best to get a Fastpass or ride early in the morning. Although the queue area was recently updated and it makes the wait entertaining. Definitely a must see if you've never ridden. We make it a point to ride every trip.

Pros:

Fun, original attraction. Lots of things to see - you notice something new just about every time.

Cons:

Pre-show room and loading area are dark so watch your step. Could be scary for smaller children.

Not really scary, which is a plus for those with younger kids.

Pros:

The queue line is fun as well as the ride.

Cons:

Even though this ride is not very scary, it is a dark ride that can be scary for some littles.

Classic ride - ballroom scene is my favorite

Pros:

This classic ride is always fun and enjoyable - the detail put into this is amazing. The ballroom scene and the graveyard have great details. - Got my picture taken on it - this was a nice addition.

Cons:

Came to a complete stop 2 times when I was on - not just a slow down for someone to board - but a complete stop with cast members walking around in the ride for several minutes at a time - caught in an area with little going on, so not moving and mothing interesting to look at. Still a great ride!
