I’ve ridden the Haunted Mansion dozens of times. But one time I rode it was different from any other. I vaguely remember that one of the very first times I rode Haunted Mansion, there was someone in costume that jumped out at you.
Turns out my memory is correct. In the 1980s, Disneyland had a cast member dressed up a knight in armor. They were part of the ride and would jump out at guests.
