Doom Buggy

Doom Buggy is the show name for Disney’s OmniMover system. It was initially developed for the “Adventures in Inner Space” attraction by a team led by Bob Gurr.

The cars, linked together, move forward via a 12-volt electric drive train. The vehicles themselves have no means of locomotion. They are driven by a series of ten motors located throughout the ride.

Each car can also be rotated 180 degrees—from facing forward to facing backward. This rotation, combined with scalloped design of the car, allows the designers to control what the guests see at any given time.

Each car is also equipped with 3 speakers.

Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion has 131 cars, with a typical capacity of approximately 2,400 guests per hour.

My sister & I were on the TOT & there was only 1 seat left. 1 of the CMs (maybe going on break) filled the empty seat which was right next to my sister in the back corner. After we de-boarded, my sister rushed me out of the building & told me how creeped out she was by him because he sat completely still the entire time with a straight face. We went to see our picture and sure 'nuff there he was glaring @ the camera like he was possessed. I will always admire him for taking his job so seriously.
