I'm happy to share with you the very first "inside the ride" pictures of the highly awaited Hong Kong Disneyland Mystic Manor ride! But, first, it's official: Mystic Manor and the new Mystic Point land will open for "everyone" on May 17! If i say for "everyone" it's because there will be HKDL Annual Passholders previews on April 26 and 30 as well as on May 3 and 4!
In the meantime let's have a look at these first HKDL official pics and, below, a glorious picture showing the Manor in all its pre-opening day beauty. As we know, Mystic Point and Mystic Manor will be based around the life of an eccentric explorer named Lord Henry Mystic and his travel companion, a monkey called Albert. The two characters will appear in Mystic Manor and its 32-cars "Mystic Magneto-Electric Carriage" ride, and Mystic Point will also include the Explorer’s Club Restaurant and The Archive Shop.
The picture below shows what is probably a scene of the inside queue decor - or it might be in the Explorer's Club restaurant...
The next picture below shows a cast member in what surely is Mystic Manor boarding room.
The next pic is probably showing the beginning of the ride itself.
In Mystic Manor pre-show Henry Mystic will appear and warn the guests that a new artifact - a box that he just bring back from one of his expeditions is supposedly enchanted and must be open very carefully. I think that the next photo shows the scene in which Albert the Monkey open the box-that-shouldn't-be-open... and just like the box of "Pandora", the forces inside the box will be unleashed!
On this vertical version of the picture you can see better the lighting effects that probably happen when Albert is opening the box...
The picture below shows the music room scene in which music instruments are supposed "to come to life", or at least to play by themselves.
As i didn't did the ride yet i may do some mistakes but i think that the next picture is showing what is called the "cataloguing room" , the room in which Albert open the box and in which Mystic Manor vehicles come back at the end of the ride.
More pictures of the ride will probably come soon but i have two more pics for you, one showing the inside of the merchandise shop - no surprise, HKDL guests will find plenty of merch related to Albert the monkey...
...and also this great picture showing Mystic Manor with its night lighting.
That's all for now, but it already looks pretty exciting, doesn't it? More pics and as the AP preview will start in one week it means that we shouldn't have to wait too long before the first videos appear on Youtube. Which i strongly recommend to don't watch if you're planning a trip to HKDL in a near future. probably a video coming soon!
One more thing: I'm looking for a HKDL annual passholder who intend to go at the April 26 preview. If you are a HKDL AP and if you're planning to go at the April 26 preview please send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org , thanks!
