    No the SS houses wouldn't be smaller. SS20 held Interstellar Terror and Body Collectors in 2008 and SS 23 held Dracula and Frankenstein in 2009.

    The speculation thread will be created once summer time hits. As for now, all discussion should take place within this thread. :) As far as the soundstage houses, not really as they would be the same size as Body Collectors/Creatures since they shared a soundstage.

    As was already mentioned, it would be next impossible for anyone to see all 10 houses in one night.

    But it would be welcome news to Frequent Fear Passers!

    Plus, there's a better chance that queue lines will be generally shorter (hopefully). So even if you are only visiting one night, at least you'll be able to pick & choose the houses that appeal to you most and take advantage of the fact that the crowd is spread out more than normal.

    Either way, here's to hoping they knock it out of the park with #20! Can't wait!!!

    Sounds good!

    From Screamscape:
    I would love to see them put the Xena building back to use! Hopefully that is one of the buildings getting the replacements!

    To be quite honest, anyone out of the state is probably going to be at Universal for more than one day. If I can get some friends to drive down there for fall break, there is no way I'm only going to HHN one night.

    And for those who do live nearby, sure, you might not be able to experience everything in one go. But for those who are big fans of Halloween, chances are you are going to be visiting more than once, regardless.

    There really shouldn't be any negativity towards having more "mazes" (unless you are concerned about the quality. But this is their 20th anniversary, so I think we should all expect good things to come)

    Agreed....... I think 10 mazes would be a hugely welcome change, especially after the consistently crazy crowds for HHN 19.

    Sorry about saying 7 I forgot to count the parade building. Also ten houses really doesn't sound good to me because I like to spend time doing houses again in the same night. I remember the houses that I go through twice better than the ones I go through only once and the second time around gives me a chance to see things I may have missed the first time around. I would rather double on houses than wait to do ten houses once.

    Very interesting rumor coming out of HHNRumors.com. Apparently, Universal has renewed its trademark for Festival of the Dead. Could it be returning? Here's the link as well as the picture proof of the renewal: http://hhnrumors.com/index.php?a=6

    Unfortuantely if you look under the owner in the text at the site it states Universal City Plaza Universal city California. Which leads me to believe that this will be for the Hollywood theme park's horror nights event. :furious:

    How can you run the parade when 1.) The SZ are so much bigger now then there were during the parade.. 2.) The route goes thru 2 house que lines.

    Use common since and new doors open up.

    Also just because there working on Herc roof doesnt mean its HHN related, it could be though. the building needs to be repair big time.. so it could be a show.. they wouldn't just leave it empty all yr long after HHN,

    Hey guys, let's play nice on here, ok?

    Firstly, I think they could always change up the parade route if need be. For example, they could start in Amity and end at the HMU gate. That's a possibility.

    Secondly, Universal City Development Partners represents Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood, so it is certainly possible that FotD will be returning this year.

    Just some food for thought...

    I'm not being rude, just ask Kevin.

    Speaking of Kevin.. I still cant see them running the parade due to the crowds we have now.

    I agree with the good Doctor. While the parade would be nice, it will take up way to much space used for scarezones. If I had the choice between having the regular amount of scarezones and no parade or losing 2 scarezones and gaining the parade, I would choose the scarezones. The streets are already jam-packed with people and a large parade such as the Festival would cause big congestion issue.

    Do you (not aimed at anyone specific) mind avoiding the use of acronyms, please? Those drive me nuts when I don't know what they stand for. It's not like it saves that much time, any ways.

    The parade would thin the house lines down, did it when it used to be there. 2nd the scare zones over the last few years have been the weakest point at HHN. Last year they were so small it was almost sad. 3rd the crowds at Mardi Gras are near the same size as HHN. 4th the xena building rumor was wrong check screamscape today and finally I agree seeing 10 houses one night with out an express pass would be next to impossible even for some one like me who can see them before 10. another house would make it almost impossible.

    Just because you can't experience everything in one day, doesn't mean a theme park shouldn't add anything. If Disney had that thought process, Disney World would be NOTHING...
