It’s time to take your Disney Halloween decorations to the next level with Lowe’s newest Haunted Mansion Animatronic!
The Walt Disney Company is the king of audio-animatronics. Lee Adams, who worked for Walt Disney as an electrician in Burbank, California, created Disney’s first animatronic after Walt brought an electronic bird back from a trip to New Orleans. Guests to Disneyland or Walt Disney World will recognize this if they’ve ever visited the Enchanted Tiki Room. Audio animatronics quickly progressed into high-tech, full-scale models that we see today in Disney Parks. One popular ride utilizing these animatronics is The Haunted Mansion, which opened at Disneyland in 1969 and at Disney World in 1971.
As The Walt Disney Company gets ready for the worldwide premiere of their newest film, The Haunted Mansion, on July 28, fans of the ride are clamoring to get their hands on anything and everything associated with Mr. Gracey’s Manor. Adding to the demand for Haunted Mansion merchandise, summer is ending, which means Halloween is approaching. There is no other Disney Parks product so well fitted for the spooky season. Each year, The Haunted Mansion is a must-do for many visiting Disney during the Halloween season.
However, this year, for those that can’t visit, Lowe’s Home Improvement is bringing The Haunted Mansion to you! It’s time to spook up that yard in true Disney fashion with Lowe’s brand-new 6-foot Haunted Mansion Caretaker animatronic. You’ll immediately recognize this iconic animatronic from the fan-favorite ride, and so will your neighbors. On sale for $239.00, the Caretaker animatronic has a lighted lantern and plays “Grim Grinning Ghosts” as it scans your graveyard for happy haunts.
