I remember those days and that is why in one of my earlier post I asked hasn't HHN always been super crowded and super busy through out the years, especially mid 2000 years. These crazy lines aren't something really that new or unexpected. I don't really remember but didn't they add more house over the years from 6 to 7 to 8 and im sure that was in response to the crowds and popularity each year?Houses have had long lines as recently as 2008. 2008 was right around when the financial crisis was happening. I think a lot of newer fans were not around when the event was getting 100 minute waits opening weekend of 2006 and 2007, but they were there and we haven't hit that point again yet. I can remember seeing a picture of Friday 13th with a 100 minute wait on a non-peak night and I even remember Saw getting a 130 a few times. 2008 was just the last time that the houses were consistently getting 120 minute waits.
