    Josh Gard (Figure) will be returning, as the facade will be a New Year's Eve Postcard.

    There are a lot of possible angles to do this, and to expand a lot of the concepts from the past. But more importantly, originality! I am so happy to see them do this again (even if it's expanding a scarezone to maze; ala' La Llorona).

    EDIT: Video,

    Oh HELL YES.
    My entire thought process through the zone was THIS NEEDS TO BE A MAZE. So glad they're going through with this. This zone was oddly a highlight of last year and better than The First Purge.
    I could go without the music from Figure though.
    And I wish the font looked more professional.
    But originality is a big plus, so either way, I'm good.

    I know, I hope in the years to come Murdy will be comfortable enough to do an original without some kind of musical collaboration.

    I was kind of hoping it would be hosted by the Screecher or something to continue the “Titans” story, but I’ll glady take more original content.

    But Figure though....eh.

    To also note, Holidayz in Hell will be in Parisian, with a scarezone in the French Street.

    So in a sense, we’re kinda getting our Dark Christmas maze.

    Is the maze going to go “inside” toward the end like Dracula, Halloween, and El Cucuy did? Otherwise, this is going to be a terribly short maze.

    I hope that it’s not just one holiday, one room, because that’s gonna be quite a bit short then.

    I'm gonna take a guess in that, they are going to lose the plaza this year for maze space itself, but that might be for the better; considering that it shouldn't take that much space, compared to Universal Monsters.

    It seems like multiple rooms per Holiday. New Years is getting multiple rooms, St. Patrick's Day is getting an indoor facade, and I think Christmas is getting some more stuff too.

    BTW, anyone notice that there's no Halloween, Dia De Los Muertos or Cinco de Mayo section? Makes me a little sad, especially the Halloween section missing.

    I mean - it’s Halloween Horror Nights. Halloween is well represented enough :lol:

    I can see why they wouldn't do Halloween, but yeah; the lack of doing at-least Dia De Los Muertos is a bit intriguing.

    ..My wonder, is if they are purposefully holding off, because they might be a scarezone theme (although that's more guessing than anything).

    Admittedly a part of me wonders if the whole FIGURE / original mazes having musical attachment thing is part of the budget. Like, maybe they're sponsoring HHN a bit along with getting in their music and some basically free advertising.

    My hype level for this is really high. It’s exciting to get an original maze again, and even better, one that’s not in 3D. I would of liked to see some of host like The Screechee or even H.R. Bloodengutz, and it’s really weird to me that there’s no cinco de mayo/dia de los muertos section considering where the park is located, but this is a perfect idea for a house and should be great.

    Other than Figure’s involvement, I’m all for this one! I am so happy that they’re doing original maze content again. The facade sounds amazing and I love the twisted sense of humor incorporated in the scenes. I thought Dark Christmas from 14 and 15 was a little overrated but the new characters look awesome! The hype is real!!!

    its weird that they would use the dia de los muertos and halloween sections in the announcement video, but not put them in the maze
    Edit: hopefully john will do a twitter q&a to clear some things up
