Haunted Mansion - Knight

A Knight For A Fright In Disney’s Haunted Mansion


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.

The wonderful Haunted Mansion site DoomBuggies has an interview with one of the cast members who played the knight.
