    Halloween is at the bottom for me, but I still think it's fine house - but I did have one of the best runs of any house I've had this year last Saturday night so... :shrug:

    I've had 2 runs through Blumhouse "by ourselves" and it was still bad.

    My last trip consisted of a lot of actors either trying to scare my chest or accidentally slapping me because they misjudge my height. (I'm 6'4)

    Hated this house. I don't think I got a single scare. And I literally watched Halloween 4 during my trip cause it was on AMC and I still had a hard time recognizing what some of the scenes in this house were supposed to be.

    Shrek hasn’t been a good location for houses so far (neither has the MIB tent).

    not really true. Krampus was better than any other house put in here. and it was legitimately good. and very close to the movie.
    Krampus had great sets.
    Saw was going to suck no matter what and halloween was a last minute addition. and Alice was a 3D house which those are never the greatest.
    i think this location just ends up getting the worst luck

    Agreed. It's been 50/50 as far as output.

    Now, as far as what Design thinks about this house location.... :lol:

    IMO there’s never been a “terrible” house in Shrek. Alice was good, Krampus was pretty good, SAW was ok, and H4 was a decent house with a good cast. MiB Tent however feels like the new JAWS Queue

    Krampus was great and Asylum was solid.

    Also Blumhouse 1 was good.

    I always forget about Krampus and Asylum is probably the best 3D house they've done in my visiting the event (Since 21). The venue is just not all that good imo for houses.

    And yes, the OG Blumhouse was solid, but i'll always be biased towards it since I was in the house :lol:

    Shrek has contained the weakest houses of the past two years, but Wonderland and Krampus were both strong. The only problem with this location is getting a good facade. The MIB tent is a significantly worse location.

    Are the houses weak because of the location???

    Or are the houses weak because the properties used were weak?

    Do they just dump the weakest propertiesto this location and MIB?

    Saw would not have worked anywhere regardless.
    Halloween was a last minute addition.

    Im not sure if the location is the problem.

    I think Universal doesn't know how to use the layout well yet. Similar issue to how tent houses were always considered the weakest till about 5-6 years ago.
