Wallet

The Hole in the Wallet Gang was an organization that came to be buried adjacent to Phantom Manor.

History

The Hole in the Wallet Gang was presumably a gang of outlaws which either operated out of or came to the town of Thunder Mesa.  The gang was made up of men and women named: Roland Aylor, Phil Canata, Darlene Todd, Casey Brennan, Jeff Burke, Michael Valentino, Ed Hanna, Nancy Gee, Richard Brown, Stephen Court, Keith Ackland-Snow, Monica Ackland-Snow, Paul Ackland-Snow, Robert J. Smith, Dave Giddens, John Flynn, George Hollis, Gerry Wilcox, David Fardell and Michael Fleming.

In 1892 every member of the gang was killed and then were buried in the Boot Hill Cemetery, adjacent to the notoriously haunted Ravenswood Manor.  Their epitaph reads:

"AS — In Memory, “The Hole in the Wallet Gang”, 1892
Roland Aylor, Phil Canata, Darlene Todd, Casey Brennan, Jeff Burke, Michael Valentino, Ed Hanna, Nancy Gee, Richard Brown, Stephen Court, Keith Ackland-Snow, Monica Ackland-Snow, Paul Ackland-Snow, Robert J. Smith, Dave Giddens, John Flynn, George Hollis, Gerry Wilcox, David Fardell, Michael Fleming

Trivia

  • The names of the members are all the names of imagineers who worked on Phantom Manor.
  • The "AS" in the epitaph is a referance to the British Firm of Ackland-Snow which built and installed many of the show elements of Phantom Manor.
  • The time of death being 1892 is an allusion to Phantom Manor's opening date of 1992 however it does create something of a plot-hole considering how the ride is set during the 1880s.
