The Monster Plantation/The Monster Mansion Part 4
A guy named Pops (you can only see his hand here) plays a game of horseshoes with his loony looking dragon pal.
Bobbing for apples is easy for a monster with a giant mouth. New for The Monster Mansion in 2009 is an apple smell for this scene.
Next we see some characters dancing. Well, you would have seen this many years ago, but the dancers were removed from the ride at some point, and they did not return for The Monster Mansion. What happened to them? I don't know! Only the musicians (Jimmy, Billy and Maw--plus their guitar) survive from this scene.
A young character named Albert plays a midway game called "Hit the Human." Ouch!
The Strongman monster called The Big Monster on Campus is one of my favorite characters. A skateboard-rider named Zoomer circles this big lug.
A crazy looking creature plays a game of "ring the bell." Years ago, the little monster that hit the bell had arms and legs. These days, he only has arms.
There's also a chili contest (only partially seen here) featuring a character named Spurgeon, whose mouth is on fire! For the Monster Mansion, intense heat and new light effects inside Spurgeon's mouth were added to this display.
Of course, there are monsters on the other side of the waterway. We'll see (most) of them next time!
