Billy ghosts gaff

Here’s a neat addition to Halloweentime at Disneyland this year — a special “haunted” version of Billy Hill and the Hillbillies!

Billy Hill and the Haunted Hillbillies

The “Ghost Billys” effect makes use of a very large-scale “Pepper’s ghost” effect (similar to the ballroom scene in the Haunted Mansion and, outside Disneyland, in Knott’s Berry Farm’s Mystery Lodge where clever reflections are used to make it appear that the show is playing to a large audience). The trick involves a gigantic angled pane of perfectly clear glass and requires the Billys to do the entire show lying on their backs in a pit below stage level.
