The Monster Plantation/The Monster Mansion Part 7
We find ourselves back with the friendly monsters. In The Monster Plantation, the final picnic scene is set during the afternoon. For The Monster Mansion, it's nighttime.
For The Monster Mansion in 2009, a kinetic light show and dancing fountains were added to the finale.
The Lagoon Goon Musicians are in this scene, and they kick up the music! Mizzy Scarlett tells us that she's happy we made it out of the Marsh. Then she asks, "Don't you just feel like singin'?"
The ride's theme song plays here, and a new feature for the Mansion is an animated "follow the bouncing Buzby the monster" karaoke-type display so you can sing along with the music.
A little monster named Buster is doing some fishing here, and he's caught a skeleton! Buster is one of my favorite monsters. The pond Buster fishes in doubles as an elaborate fountain now.
Buzby, the ride's green monster mascot, sits on a "G'Bye Y'All!" sign and waves at us. For The Monster Mansion, Buzby sports some bling and flair that lights up.
The boats then push through two large doors into a dark room. All of a sudden, two large red eyes light up above our heads. For the final scene, our boat enters the toothy mouth of a ferocious beast called the Boat Eater. For The Monster Mansion, a new loud horn sound was added for a startling monster "sneeze" (though this sound could be interpreted as the monster breaking wind).
The boat travels through a tunnel that doubles as the Boat Eater's throat. We then exit the building and are back at the load and unload area.
I hope y'all enjoyed your trip through The Monster Plantation/The Monster Mansion!
Next time, we'll take a trip to the Monstore nearby, where you can buy your on-ride photo.
