Ever wanted to know exactly what goes on behind the scenes at Disneyland's most legendary dark ride? Turns out there's an awesome Tumblr gallery, appropriately titled Haunted Mansion Backstage, that contains an amazing catalog of photos detailing the inner workings of the attraction in well-lit detail.
The gallery launched last month, and contains many rare images of the elaborate ride interiors...
...including the nuts and bolts of the animatronic creatures and props, mechanics normally concealed by shadows, mirrors and fog.
We even get a peek inside the master control room... including the keys to the kingdom!
Creepy test designs and prototypes of various spooky features are also on display here, including archival photos showing operators putting them through their paces.
We also get a close-up glimpse of props, sets and creatures getting makeovers and touch-ups, and adjustments being made to the ride's elaborate mechanisms.
