Each quest will be available to play on Saturday, as well as Sunday, before it retires. Good luck!
Haunted Mansion Ghost Chasers Game - Now Open!
Join 999 virtual happy haunts in a “spirited” ghost-hunting game! It’s the most fun you can have without being alive! Team up with your friends and rid the mansion of it’s ghoulish residents! The Haunted Mansion Ghost Chasers Game is now open, and the spirits are dying to meet you! The mini-game is currently in alpha testing, so we are still reviewing and testing the way the game works. Here’s some tips to “scare” up your score:
- When playing The Haunted Mansion Game and you’re “tagged” by a ghost, you will briefly become a ghost and take on the ghosts color (green or purple – whichever color your opponent is.) When you’re human, ghosts that are the same color as you will run from you, but guess what? When you’re a green or purple “ghost,” the ghosts don’t know to run away from you! Use this time to get close to the opposing colored ghost. That way when you “turn human” again you’re right there, ready to tag them and grab the points, rather than wasting time running around! (But watch out for other ghost that may be following you.)
- Catching a player that has been turned into a ghost will get you more points than just catching a regular ghost!
- Shake the coffins by pressing the CTRL or SHIFT key while facing it to make more ghosts appear, but be careful, this strategy may backfire if you shake a coffin that releases an opponent’s ghost.

Push’s Trash Trivia!
Test Your Knowledge of Disney Trivia!
This Week’s Question: This Frontierland attraction has a host of singing bears. What’s the name of the attraction?
Know the answer?
Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to provide your MyVMK username in the email with the answer. From the correct answers submitted, we randomly select three players as the winners and send them a Push Trivia Pin! You have until Thursday, November 27th, to send your answers in.
Here’s the answer to last weeks Push Trivia: In the Haunted Mansion, who provides the voice for the ride’s narration?
Answer: Paul Frees.
Paul Frees is the “Ghost Host” for the Haunted mansion – providing the narration for the attraction’s foyer, stretching room, and ride.
Did you know: Frees’ voice was also used in many other Disney projects. He voiced the Professor Ludwig Von Drake in episodes of the Disney anthology television series (which is often referred to as “The Wonderful World of Disney”). This same character, Professor Ludwig Von Drake, was also featured on many Disneyland Records and Frees sung as Von Drake in the cartoon An Adventure in Color. Frees also voiced the pirate auctioneer for the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Frees was honored as Disney Legend on October 9, 2006.
There are a few other notable voices used for the Haunted Mansion attraction as well. The voice of Vincent Price (most popularly known for his narration in Michael Jackson’s Thriller) was originally used in the Phantom Manor part of the Haunted Mansion attraction. However, due to some complications with contracts, the voice of Gerard Chevalier was used instead. Another notable voice used in the attraction is that of Thurl Ravenscroft (best known for voicing Tony the Tiger in the cereal commercials) - he sings as part of the quintet of singing busts in the graveyard scene. Congratulations to the 3 lucky (and randomly picked) players that sent in the correct answer for last week’s question!
