3D Version of Disney’s Haunted House ride coming, courtesy of Guillermo Del Toro

It would appear that Star Tours isn’t the only ride in Disneyland that is getting an update. The Haunted House ride is also getting a makeover, and it will be from Guillermo Del Toro.
I’m sure most of you will recognize the name as a director of some great films like Pan’s Labyrinth, and yes, the Hellboy series. He also recently stepped down as the director for the upcoming adaptation of The Hobbit which may see the light of day sometime.
The Haunted House ride is going to be made over in 3D. I am assuming that this will be a lot like the recent Harry Potter ride that opened this summer. I think I went on a ride in EPCOT center that used 3D goggles as you rode around on an amusement park car, and one could only hope that the updated Haunted House ride will be more interesting.
I remember going on the Haunted House ride about twenty years ago, and thought that some things on it looked dated even back then. I heard that it had an update in 2007, and so it seems a little early to have another makeover. Man, the kids must have really gotten used to the effects to demand an update only a few years later.
