REVIEW: New 50th Anniversary Haunted Mansion ‘Tightrope Walker’ Push Pop Fails to Materialize, Replaced With ‘Quicksand’ Stretching Portrait Dessert at Magic Kingdom

Last updated:

Among the new 50th anniversary food items launching at Magic Kingdom today is a Haunted Mansion-inspired push-pop available at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments.


The Doom Berry, also inspired by The Haunted Mansion, is still available. Read our review.


Disney’s announcement and the menu list a chocolate and cherry push-pop featuring the tightrope walker stretching portrait. However, the push-pop being served today is entirely different.

Chilling Chamber Pop – $5.49

A Push-Pop with Vanilla Cake, Graham Cracker Crumbs, and Carmel Buttercream


Since this article’s original publication, the menu has been updated to show the correct item.


Like the picture, the push-pop is wrapped with the famous Haunted Mansion wallpaper. It’s topped with a chocolate piece featuring the stretching portrait of men descending into quicksand.


The push-pop is designed to look like quicksand. It lacked the advertised dark chocolate pearls, and we struggled to find any cherry taste in the buttercream. As the menu has been updated, we now know this version features graham cracker crumbs and caramel buttercream instead. At the time, even Cast Members did not know the ingredients.


It is a cute, photogenic dessert. The caramel buttercream is overly sweet, though.


The cake itself was moist, fresh, and light. The white chocolate piece was surprisingly good as well.


The crumbs were slightly moist, so it wasn’t like eating actual sand.
