Disney’s ‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ Augmented Reality Game Now Available for Download

Disney's 'Mayhem at the Mansion' AR GameConfirming an earlier report by Stitch Kingdom, although the game has not yet been officially announced by Disney Parks and Resorts, the iOS version of Disney’s ‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ is now available as a free download from the iTunes App Store.

As we previously pointed out, the idea behind the augmented reality game is to go to certain locations marked on the Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party event map, find one of the hitchhiking ghosts who have escaped from the Haunted Mansion and capture them using the ‘spectre collector’ in the app. Interactions can be saved and shared before returning the ghost to his rightful place back at the Haunted Mansion.

SPECULATION: ‘Stories in the Sky’ to Replace ‘Wishes’ Fireworks at Magic Kingdom

Although the Walt Disney World Resort differs in its philosophy for entertaining guests than its west coast counterpart, Disneyland — as the latter relies far more heavily on locals and keeping them amused — the Magic Kingdom’s nighttime fireworks program remained mostly unchanged for over a decade. Conversely, within that same time period, Disneyland has had three different shows debut. In other words, it may just be time for ‘Wishes’ to be retired.

While rumors have circulated for about a year regarding a replacement for ‘Wishes’ in either 2015 or 2016, one of the strongest pieces of evidence may in fact be one of the least reliable: domain names.
