It’s no secret the Disney fandom can’t get enough of all things Haunted Mansion! The classic attraction at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort is a fan favorite as Guests ride through the creepy Mansion, clinging to their doom buggy.

As happy haunts multiply and grim grinning ghosts fill the halls, the Disney Park attraction is as fascinating inside as it is outside. And when natural lightning strikes over the Haunted Mansion – it’s a perfect touch of spookiness!

@disneytipsguy was visiting Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park when a typical summer Central Florida storm rolled through.

He took to social media to share both a slow-motion video of the Haunted Mansion in Liberty Square with the lightning strike and the full-speed version as well:

Can’t get enough of the Haunted Mansion? Be sure to mark your calendars as a new Haunted Mansion film is in the works and scheduled to arrive next year.

Disney describes the Haunted Mansion ride as “A Spirited Tour”:

The disembodied voice of the Ghost Host is your private guide through the cadaverous realm of an eerie haunted estate, home to ghosts, ghouls and supernatural surprises.  Glide past a casket-filled conservatory, Madame Leota’s chilling séance room and a ghostly graveyard of singing specters as you attempt to find your way out. Beware of hitchhikers—these phantom pranksters may follow you home. Happy haunting!
