I've seen these posted various times on ATS. I love watching them, but I keep concluding that they are part of the ride somehow, or due to really
outdated technology mixed with lighting and other factors.
Has anyone here been on this ride? Seems like someone that had been on it could easily confirm if projected ghosts are part of the attraction.
I remember when I was a kid (in the 1980s) there were projected ghosts on a Haunted Mansion ride. I would imagine technology is much more
sophisticated these days to allow for such things.
Here is a picture I found on someone's flicker account of some holographic ghosts at the Tower of Terror. www.flickr.com...
They are similar to the ghosts in this video in that they are white/colorless. Of course, these ghosts are not inside the ride, but out in an area
that riders can view.
I looked on two websites that detail the tower of terror: disneyparks.wikia.com... and
www.towerofterror.org... and could find nothing about ghost "riders" or holograms during the decent. So this all makes me think that if this
is fake, it must be some sort of after effect... a reflection doesn't seem so likely since they are sitting so perfectly in their seats.
I love these videos! They have been floating around the internet for a while now, a couple have been debunked, others have not. As far as the ride
goes...I have been on this ride many many times. There are no projected ghosts of in that part of the ride. None at all, also, when comparing it to
the Haunted Mansion, the HM does not actually use a hologram, you pass by a mirror where the image is projected to give the illusion there is a ghost
there, a hologram is not projected into your ride car. We really don't have the technology to accomplish that at this time Also, in the Tower of
Terror video, yes there are some funky light things going on, but if it were a reflection of the man etc...wouldn't it show up through the entire
video? Even if it did not, it would reoccur in the same place, not jump around the elevator car. Also, the " ghost" doesn't look like the man...in
fact it seems to have hair!
I have been on this ride several times at Disney Paris and Florida. There are no projections into the seating area BUT the screen you are watching
have holograms of people and children. May be a good idea for you to watch videos of the actual ride. To my knowledge though, there is no holograms
full stop of anyone sitting down. So the "seated ghost" cannot be a reflection of the hologram.
