    Given WDI's normally hyper paranoid military-like secrecy, I have to say I am suspicious as to the motives for them openly revealling to fans the complete details for the attraction. Along with the art work, not a lot is left to the imagination.

    It just seems a bit different from their normal way of doing business. My thought is that they are trying to drum up fan support and get us excited for this new attraction.

    Major studios have been doing test screenings for years, including Disney and Pixar. But there's no effective way to "test ride" a theme park attraction before construction begins. So... leak out the details to the online fan community. It's not as effective, but it probably helps somewhat.

    Until now, I wasn't hyped about this new attraction, but that artwork gave me chills. An all new Haunted Mansion, but with a little taste of the old. *shudder*

    I might just have to go to Hong Kong again!
