woah!!! they did some of these houses last year???? now im really confused!!!do they do this each year... repeat houses...HOS 2013 opening day review.
The two new houses first, they were really good, BGTs last houses have certainly stepped it up. The Basement had parts of Alone and was a pretty long house that they were pulsing which made it nice. The first part was pretty empty but the second half was jamb packed with scareactors.
Black Water Bayou was very well done and very atmospheric, loved all the swamp areas, the façade and the opening rooms.
Vampire Casino employed the old HOS standard for old houses and ran us through it backwards and instead of Vamps the Warewolves have taken over.
Blood Asylum was the same, starting to like this house more.
Nevermore, had a few minor changes and added some pages to the beginning.
Zombie Mortuary is still a great house and just alot of fun!
Circus of Superstition in 3-D was the same.
Pain Lane and the Haunted harvest marks the return of the true scare zones and both were enjoyable, but it just reminds me of when there were SZs all over the park and how the event feels lacks something without them. Speaking of which... big disappointment (bad HOS bad) there were no-zero-zilch decorations around the park that weren't in a SZ! That was beyond sad. No Hoards either. There were several stalk around guys and a group of bush whackers but that was all I had seen.
The front gate area was slap full of the 13 and doors! Great photo op area.
I had a fun time the crowds were mild to say the least.
Pics when they upload.
