At the beginning of the ride the ghost host (the narrator) says the only way to escape the mansion is to die, and he shows that he hanged himself. Near the end of the ride there’s a moment where the ride vehicle turns around backwards and you go off a balcony, which according to this theory represents you jumping to your death.
Before this part of the ride the ghosts are all trying to scare you, but afterwards they sing excitedly and invite you to party with them. (The Grim Grinnin’ Ghosts song.) The only human character in the ride, a groundskeeper, appears after the balcony drop. He faces toward the riders and seems terrified of you.
Could be totally accidental, could be an intentional subtlety by the designers, but either way you’ll never looked at that ride the same way since.
holy…mother of god…
yeah well if i wasn’t scerd of that ride before….
[muns about to lay a knowledge bomb on all of you. You die on every single themed ride at all of disneyland, with the exception of space mountain not during halloween.
Lets start with the basics.
Pirates of the Carribean- Simple enough, you are shipwrecked upon a dingy, after falling down a particularly nasty waterfall. You die and are sent to davy jones locker, passing through a grave yard of bodies, who eventually come to life to live out their fantasies. “this i made obvious by the dead men tell no tales, chant that is uttered throughout the entire ride.
Splash mountain- right before the drop all of the animals are warning you to turn back, that there is danger further ahead. Something perilous is about to happen. Why than after the fall, where it is made obvious that you fell into a pile of thorn bushes. That you end up in a wonderfull paradise where everyone is singing and dancing and having a wonderful day. Its simple, you died and went to heaven.
Finding Nemo- You run into a sea mine that detonates, dropping you the bottom of the ocean where you are surrounded by Angler Fish[ which has the acronym for angel in it]
Small World- this is the most subtle, you die somewhere towards the end of the ride. After contracting a malaria based fever in Africa causing you to hallucinate (which is why you see the animals on umbrellas. Your last stop is a magical land where every person of all races colors, and genders are singing and dancing in all white) once again signifying heaven
