Mabel’s 6 Feet Under is a haunted maze located across the freeway from Disneyland. Once you arrive, a  creepy little girl Mable, won’t let you go easily. She lives in the motel for all eternity! Due to the complex structure of the maze, it is challenging to find your way out.  Unlike other attractions, long lines are not allowed.
