Arguably the most multimedia-rich experience at Disneyland is the Haunted Mansion, and although over 40 years old, it still leaves visitors scratching their heads as to how the effects were produced. In this 4-hour workshop, Chris Weisbart, hardware hacker and multimedia developer at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, shows how the Disney Imagineers created this incredible attraction and discusses different ways you can use some of the same techniques at home for your own ghoulish Halloween effects. Included in the class will be a collaborative construction of one of the more interesting effects in the ride: the floating head of Madame Leota!
