The ride itself first opened in New Orleans Square at Disneyland in 1969, with the Magic Kingdom location in Florida opening two years later. Today, Haunted Mansion rides can be found across various Disney parks around the world. With the upcoming release of the ‘Haunted Mansion’ movie remake, fans of the attraction can immerse themselves in the spooky world of the haunted house once again, only this time on the big screen.
