    I like this idea better with the designer, instead of burning himself alive, getting hired by Busch Gardens and later Disney.

    I have been going since 04 and I would say the potential is there!

    I was one of the few that actually like Resident Evil. Lol

    Dang I missed that year! 08 was probably the best overall year I've been to.

    With the exception of Hades, I don't think budget was really a issue. But I know there was a LOT of hype for this year and it didn't quite meet expectations. It's a great example of just because a lineup looks great, doesn't mean it'll be that way in execution. Though this year does feel wonderfully different compared to the others (Marketing alone has been a huge step up), so there's some nice hope this'll be a solid year.

    At least to me, it didn’t seem all that impressive a lineup (Catacombs and Hades seemed like cool concepts.)

    I am excited for the event this year and the line up of houses does seem very strong on paper the best since i've been going in 06. Can anyone tell me when was the last time they only had one "show" at the event? There always seemed to be Bill and Ted + one other (carnival of carnage, AoV, rocky horror, Bushwood, robosauraus) and they were always usually staggered which meant great people eaters. Wondering how just having AoV this year will affect house wait times even with the additional house.

    This is the first year I’ve been on the forums... just curious if the “This year has all-time potential” conversation happens virtually every year once the full line-up becomes clear.

    Edit - Just to be clear, I’m not saying I don’t believe this years lineup sounds great.

    HHN20 is a year where I wish they would bring back some concepts. I think The Orfanage, Catacombs, Hades, & Legendary Truth would be awesome if they came back today

    Honestly, I do not share the seeming majority's hype of an "all-time event" for this year. However, I always try to refrain from letting my expectations steer my opinions of the event. I will go in with an open mind and provide fair reviews once I've seen everything. I am hopeful that I will come away pleasantly surprised with HHN28.

    This year seems to be custom tailored to my personal preferences! I tend not to go to HHN for the scares, but for the set designs, sfx, and costumes. I vastly prefer darkly humorous mazes to ones that attempt sincere menace. I prefer originals to IPs, but, if we must have IPs, I favor those that are older (Poltergeist) or a bit more obscure (TrT, Killer Klownz, even H4). And, to top it all off, I really enjoy Stranger Things.

    Basically, this year seems to cater to my tastes more than any since 2008, without a doubt my favorite of the events I’ve attended. I can absolutely understand how folks who focus on scares or prefer straight-faced horror might be doubtful about this lineup, but Uni would have to try pretty hard to turn this particular event into one that disappoints me. I hope my anticipation isn’t misplaced.

    I'll be honest with you - I always have a great time at HHN. For me, it's about the people I'm with, and just watching the park transform once the sun goes down. Yes, some years have been more successful than others, but I've never come home from HHN and regretted it.

    Almost like it it’s not about the houses but the friends we’ve made along the way. :cheers:

    So does anyone have any news/etc. about the alcohol situation this year? Were the last-minute changes made last year (no blood-shot girls, only beer/premix/watered down drinks in the tents) effective to what Uni wanted to achieve?

    I gotta say that last year, I didn't notice any difference in crowd behavior with less alcohol available for sale.

    I just like HHN. Don’t really get let down since I’m still there. Never watched a single AHS, but still enjoyed the houses due to the work they put into it. I go for the sets and scenes just as much as I go for the “scares.”

    Have you done the backstage tour thing? You get to go through 3 houses and can take photos in the original houses. It's such an awesome sight to do.

    Well, this was the only thing I tried last year that was remotely edible for me, so at least that’s something. The rest were NYT-Guy-Fieri-review levels of bad.

    Yeah, there's obviously a wide variety of opinions, which makes forums like this so interesting. I recall you not being as big a fan of 21 as most people were either, and that's definitely considered an "all-time event."
