    Idk about meet-ups, but if anyone wants to know where I'll be for sure on Saturday is on the last terror tram, and the last chainsaw chaseout

    I'm so bummed I'll be missing out on this closing weekend, especially if Potter does open up.  Darn out of town work trips.  :/

    Potter is most definitely going to be open. I know someone scheduled for that day. Apparently, the shut down process for Forbidden Journey is what was keeping them from leaving it open for HHN. (I was told it's an obnoxiously long process every day.) But it will be a test on Saturday to see how it goes in terms of closing down and getting the TM's that work it to be off on time. That said, as far as I was told, FJ will not be open all night. If I remember correctly, I was told it will close down at 12:30? As for the rest of Hogsmeade, I think it will stay open the rest of the night?

    Hmm parking the RVs can't possibly be that long especially when FJ doesn't have the same problem in Orlando, I wonder what it could be? Gee, what about this version is different? Hmmmm  ;)

     Woooo!!


    Prices never came down, and I refuse to pay the $209 for FOL this Saturday.  I ended up getting the GA tickets through Costco for $58.99, I am hoping it won't be crowded this Saturday.

    If anyone is going tonight, can you let us know how crowded it gets?  I am curious as to the volume of crowds for these final nights.

    You also can check on hhn wait times all night long to see how crowds are. For anyone going tommorow, to get a good feel on how crowds will be, look at tonight's wait times and add some time to them and you should be accurate for how it will be Saturday

    The plan was always for tomorrow. Not tonight.

    Oh well. At least I'll get to see it tomorrow night. Also, it's more crowded than anticipated. Everything is an hour wait.

    A few mazes (AHS, FvJ), peaked at 105 minutes, I think I saw Exorcist close to that at one point too, at least 90 minutes.  The rest mostly stayed around an hour wait during the busier parts of the night.

    Way busier than last years "after party". Universal saw a money maker and jumped on it. And it stayed busy right up to closing. With WWoHP open tonight I bet the line will be shorter at the mazes.

    The coolest thing happened last night. Me and my sister were about to go to Texas and stand in the hour wait, and this lady just randomly gave us two of the one-time use FoL passes. We used one for TCM and the other for AHS. We did Krampus twice since the line was virtually empty for that since it was 1AM.


    I'm going to be back tonight to say farewell to HHN 2016. It's the first closing night I've been too since '12. I'm also looking forward to a hot butterbeer tonight!

    Thanks for the updates everyone. One hour lines are manageable to me, my nightmare was those 2-3 hour wait times I saw this year..


    Looking forward to closing it out tonight, it will be my first time attending one of these.

    Well, last year's final Saturday was busier than last year's final Friday.  Although Potter may take some crowds away, who knows what the mazes will be like.  Probably won't be like the crazy wait times from opening weekend though.  Certainly take advantage of early entry if you can.  I managed to get through all 5 mazes in the lower lot and backlot areas, and still get back upstairs in time to be on the 1st tram of the evening at 6:45, without a FOL pass.

    Being that this will be my last time to ever see these houses in person, I just may do early entry again. So take advantage of it!

    Great, good to know.  We will definitely be taking advantage of the early entry tonight.

    Pamphlets handed out at the front of the park. Guess Hippogriff is not operating tonight.
