Animation and Interactive Multimedia - Disney's Haunted Mansion Virtual Tour - Page 2

  • Hallway
    Now you are in another hallway. Pass your mouse pointer over the computer screen to find the active areas. They will glow when your mouse passes over them. That's right. The pictures on the wall are the active areas.

    Click on the picture on the left side of the hallway to view the picture more closely. Move your mouse over the picture and his eyes will change. Move your mouse again and his eyes will follow your mouse. This is a small program that causes his moving eyes to move in relation to the position of your mouse on the screen. His eyes are responding to where you move your mouse.

    Now click on the Back button to return to the hallway. Travel down the hallway and click on each picture on the wall to view that picture. Each picture will change in some way when you pass your mouse over them. These changes are a special type of animation called an image transition. The transition changes the picture from one image to another image and back again. At the end of the hallway is the door to the bedroom.

  • Bedroom
    Click on the door to open it and you will see an animation of a small lamp glowing in the room. Click on the lamp to enter the room. Click on the lamp again to meet Elizabeth. Stop here to read the love note that she left on the bed and then continue to the library.

  • Library
    Click on the fireplace in the library and you will be taken to the desk. Move your mouse around the desk and you will notice that the book moves (animation) when you pass over it. I bet if you click on the book something will happen. After the book, click on the statue on the right to open the secret passage way which leads to the parlor.

  • Parlor
    Pass your mouse over the magic crystal ball to start the animation of Madam Leota. Click the tarot cards and the musical instruments and they will fly away. The tarot cards and musical instruments are all examples of clickable animations. When you click on these animations a sound and another animation will begin. Now follow the green glow to the attic.

  • Attic
    This attic has mice! See the small mouse at the bottom of the screen? Click on him to enter the attic. Search the attic with your mouse. If something moves or glows when you pass your mouse over it, I bet you are supposed to click on it. I especially liked the spirit board animation. It was so realistic. Just like a real Ouija board, you have to use your mouse to make the planchette move. Again the animation is responding to your computer mouse. You're almost done. Your last stop is the graveyard.

  • Graveyard
    Use the skeleton hands to move from scene to scene. At each scene move your mouse over the graveyard and when your mouse passes over an active area a ghost animation will jump out to scare you. Just like in the attic, the animations are triggered by your computer mouse. When you get to the crypt labeled Ecards, you can stop and send an Ecard to a friend. Just click on the animated glowing door.

    Move on to the next scene and click on that door to enter the second crypt. You can play another interactive game inside this crypt. How good are you at killing spiders?

Did you have fun? Use the Cheat button to go back and play again. Try to count the number of animations that are used to guide you through the virtual tour and the number of animations that you can control with your mouse.
