    Reminds me of Scarecrow's issue, I bet they'll adjust it.

    Honestly... this may easily end up being one of my favorite houses of all time. It has two scenes that blow me away every single time.

    Not sure how in-depth you want/need me to go (not sure if you've gone yet), but:



    Probably very basic scenes, but just so well executed.

    Would anyone mind posting a spoiler rundown of this maze, in a tag? I'm not going to be able to make it to Orlando this year and this maze really intrigues me... I'd love to know more. (I've watched the highlight POVs, but they obviously don't capture everything.)

    Hah, must have missed that one! I refuse to turn my head when I see peripheral movement (one of my many coping mechanisms), so depending on how quick it was, I might not have noticed.

    Where to begin with this one?

    When it was first teased/announced, I was pretty excited. A graveyard house has the potential to be super atmospheric and creepy, and considering earlier this year I did go through a graveyard late at night, I was ready for a house like this...

    ...or so I thought.

    The set's are beautiful, with some really haunting imagery. The story is easy to follow and worked quite well for me. (The interactive FB messenger was also a nice touch.) An then there's the scares, this house just went for the jugular and didn't hold back. There was a great plethora of scares which ranged from the terrifying to the downright creepy. An both casts were killing it anytime I went through, they showed no mercy. Which brings up this...

    Last year, the hardest scare I got was from Attack of the Swamp Yeti which gradually sent me down into a squat. That's never happened before, and I felt that was gonna' be a hard one to beat.
    Graveyard Games: Hold my beer.

    The scene in question?


    I was already on edge when I got to that scene, and I had no idea what was coming when it was set off, when the scare hit...I was fully flat on my side in total shock. That scene had a killer build up to a devastating scare, and I was really in the right/wrong place when it happened. Hands down it's the hardest hitting scare I've ever gotten so far.

    After that scene, I was even more on edge and the scares kept coming. An when I got to that finale hallway, I was screaming "NOOOOOOO!...NOOOOOO!!...NOOOOOOOO!!!" as loud as I possibly could. As for the effect that happens in that hallway, that is wonderfully creepy as hell! (It also wrecked one of my friends as she had her eyes closed in the scene before, so she didn't open them until she was in that hallway and freaked out.)

    So after my 1st run through, I was completely SHOOK. An any following run through the cast's just brought it. I was always seeing something new, including one of the skeletons near the end crawling around the tomb he pops around from and that scare killed every time. This was also a house that I heard many a guest at the park mention as one of or The favorite of theirs.

    Taking everything into account, this house landed in a solid tie for first with Universal Monsters for me. As well as a personal GOAT. It's the "Total Package" house with set's, scares and great cast's to bring it to terrifying life. An also with Universal Monsters, the walk to and from the parade warehouses felt like nothing due to the house being totally worth it.

    Ghostbusters ain't afraid of no ghosts, but these ones are a exception!

    So, funny story. I thought I was in line for Monsters a second time and realised halfway through that I was in the wrong queue!

    Glad I did though. This was the best house tonight. Such a variety of different scares, from

    I really love this house, but it seems like it has been the worst for express. Has anyone else noticed that they let in like 20-30 regular guests per 6-10 express?

    This location has notoriously been the worse location for Express pass.

    Having the merge at the corner of the building probably doesn't help, at least from a psychological perspective. Tho I don't know where else to put it.

    Definitely added to help reduce full stops in the conga line.
