    Halloween Horror Nights 30 Speculation Thread

    There's rumored concepts that I'd would never want to see at HHN, and then there are rumors so incredibly dumb that I want to jump on board just for the absurdity of it. Give me spooky Mario, or give me death. ~synergy~

    The Future of Lost Continent

    Purely my opinion here, but I think it would be interesting to see them take a more generic approach to the island. Instead of making one movie/game property the entire theme of the island, why not use a location/country that could incorporate multiple properties over time. Think of it as a...

    Horror Nights Wish List - Orlando

    With all the talk of Universal Monsters returning in some capacity for next year, I was wondering what people's thoughts would be on them as a Hollywood scare zone? Obviously they made an appearance as a scare zone just a few years ago at 25, but this would be a different spin on it. I think...

    Best Horror Nights Year Ever

    I thought both were good events, but both had their faults. 29 seemed to try to fix the issues from 28, but in the process exposed themselves to new issues. Issues that I found within HHN28 were a weaker AoV show, the San Francisco area felt like it was missing out on the action, marketing felt...

    Halloween Horror Nights 30 Speculation Thread

    Question/idea for HHN veterans. Has there ever been a Christmas/holidays themed scare zone? One thing that I continue to hear about in various podcasts and discussions is the fatigue of Central Park during the event, and how the zone generally feels more or less the same. What if they were to...

    Halloween Horror Nights 30 Speculation Thread

    After reading through all the posts in this thread, I want to touch on a few things.. 1. The idea of photo-ops at each house is pure gold. Almost every IP that comes in already has some sort of cool visual that the general public is aware of. Let's use Stranger Things as the example. Imagine a...

    Halloween Horror Nights 29 (UO): Reviews & Photos

    Just got back late last night from a fun trip to Universal. HHN 28 was my first time going (after years of watching videos and researching it all), so I don't have the most experience, but nevertheless here are my thoughts: 1. Yeti: I was pretty excited about this one since it was announced...

    HHN 28: Academy of Villains - Cyberpunk

    Does anyone have a tracklist of the songs used in the preshow/during the show? I've only been able to find one of the songs so far.

    HHN 28: Tips

    Yes, the street Finn's is on is still open (and actually provides pretty decent shade for those looking to stay out of the sun). I was in there very briefly and the stools are gone (applicable to Duff Gardens as well FWIW), probably to prevent guests from lingering around after they've received...

    HHN 28: Tips

    Yes. Still doable if you're in the front part of the second pen, but if you're further back in the second pen, I'd suggest hitting other houses and coming back to ST at the end of the night.

    HHN 28: Tips

    Correct. They'll fence off that first section entirely, and then fill up the next pen (the side of the street closer to the park).

    HHN 28: Tips

    I think you can get into the S&S area around 4:30, but I personally haven't shown up earlier than 4:45pm so I'm not positive on that. They typically let the guests head over to Stranger Things around 5:45pm, and the house ends up opening around 6pm. If you want to be one of the first through...

    HHN 28: Tips

    I made (a pretty ugly) map of the Finn's Stay N' Scream layout. You'll enter at the yellow box, by Transformers. Take a right at the last street (the small park should be on your left). There's going to be a divider down the middle of that street, stay to the right (basically where the rest of...

    Halloween Horror Nights 28 General Discussion

    In that case, I'd seriously consider investing in an Express Pass, or adding on a daytime ticket if that's more desirable. When I was there Saturday (ignored ST), the line was 160mins around 6:45. So many people go to Stranger Things straight from S&S that guests entering at 6:30 from the main...

    Halloween Horror Nights 28 General Discussion

    The gameplan I did Wednesday/Thursday was to hit it first thing out of S&S. Both days I was about halfway back in the first holding area at Finn's, and got out of the house by 6:15. You should still have time to get Scary Tales or Carnival done (possibly both depending on the night) before the...

    HHN 28: Tips

    What's the best spot(s) to grab drinks during HHN (and are there any drinks daytime or during the event that you would suggest)? From what I understand a place like Finn's will be swamped with people. I'll be 21 by the time I go down, and I'm definitely going to get a Duff Beer, but after that...

    Hi everyone! I'm Bort. I'm a college student who loves all that the theme park industry has to offer, but especially what lies in the Orlando area. My other hobbies include sports (baseball, basketball, football), movies (mostly comedies and action), and video games (sports and shooters)...
