Coolest Thing in the Universe: A Gamer’s Virtual Reproduction of Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion

Nipper, a Counterstrike map-hacker, has devised an incredibly detailed reproduction of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. According to sci-fi author Cory Doctorow over at Boing Boing Dot Net “Nipper’s packed a jaw-dropping amount of detail into the map, even down to various behind-the-scenes sections, and has creatively improved some of the slacker moments in the ride, such as a set of Eschereqsue staircases to one side of the otherwise boring stair-climb. The only thing that could make this better would be modeling ALL the backstage areas, so you could tear through the break rooms and maintenance areas with your giant guns, hunting your fellow players.” I spent a lot of time at Disneyland as a kid and I can testify that this looks just like the real thing. Scary!
