The House Itself Looks Scarier

Compared to the original Haunted Mansion, Paris's Phantom Manor has a noticeably eerier look and vibe. One of the main reasons for this difference could be because of its location. While Haunted Mansion is found in New Orleans Square, Phantom Manor is situated in Frontierland. A pristine mansion would seem out of place, making the more rundown look more suitable.

Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris Is, Hands Down, the Creepiest Attraction of Them All

Some argue that the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland is hands down the best ride in the park. While it definitely is a top contender, there's another Haunted Mansion in one of the sister locations that out-creeps the attraction in the Anaheim park by far.

The one at Disneyland Paris is actually called Phantom Manor, the only version that has a completely different name and appearance compared to the original and its global copycats. There is the exception of Hong Kong Disneyland's Mystic Manor, but it has a totally separate theme (exotic museum) from the rest, so it doesn't count.

Phantom Manor is definitely darker and spookier on every level, making it another great reason to visit Disneyland Paris. See four reasons ahead.
