It's funny to see Walking Dead so low on everyone's lists (for the most part) when that's the draw for most general public guests. I think Resident Evil is a huge one too.

I know many of us aren't a fan of the over use of IP's but damn... this really is a solid grouping of them. I don't even mind it all that much this year.

CITW is the ONLY IP I have any interest in. WD is so low on every ones list because of the suck factor (yeah I'm a hater) from last year

I thought WD was good house year only because I was a fan and it was cool to see the scenes recreated. But Its hard to make a great house in the Disaster queue. Until the sun goes down you can see every scare coming your way. I would bet its not the worst house this year, but I dont think it will be the best. Too many other good sets from whats been posted and on other sites.

The ONLY reason I scored TWD so high on the list is because the parade building had some outstanding haunts in it. I really feel like they heard about it from CS score cards as well with the house being so popular yet scoring among the lowest. Also want to point out if I'm not mistaken the parade building usually achieves the highest guest output of any house location.

I thought several past Disaster queue houses were outstanding. Such as HR Bloodengutz, Deadtropolis, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Leave it to Cleaver based off recent memory. I really feel like they just missed the mark with the house altogether.

It really seems like a solid location. I enjoyed Zombiegeddon as well. Judging by the images of Havoc it looks like they've got another winner in there.

Only house I've been in at the Disaster queue that I wasn't a big fan of was Doomsday.

Agreed (except for Leave it to Cleaver), and to add to that list, S.S. Frightanic, The Mummy, Doomsday (1999 version), Dark Torment, and the original RUN.

The Earthquake/Disaster queue has always been one of my favorite house locations ever since I went through Frightanic during my first time at HHN. If this really does end up being its last year of use due to Kong construction, then it will be greatly missed.

Being a HHN virgin I'm really looking forward to all of the houses and scare zones. My list mostly represents the houses that I feel will relate to the most having seen the show/movie or knowing the story. With only 3 weeks to go I am thoroughly looking forward to my first ever HHN and I hope to see some of you there.

I think you were thinking of the Jaws queue. That location had a curse. :lol:

8. Havoc: Derailed

This being my second year at HHN, I'm pretty excited for most of the houses. Only reason Havoc is at the bottom is because last year was my first year at HHN so I didn't get to experience the first house. It'll probably be a great house, but not experiencing the first on really takes away from my experience in the house. I'm a TWD fanboy so that's one of my most anticipated, duh. Lol

My pre-HHN rankings:

1. Havoc: Derailed (I loved the original house and I have high hopes for the sequel)
2. The Cabin In The Woods (I enjoyed the movie and the ending of this house should be great)
3. Urban Legends: La Llorana (A well executed house from Hollywood move to Orlando. Lets hope it'll be better than last years export from Hollywood, "Alice Cooper: Welcome To My Nightmare")
4. The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven (I HATED The Walking Dead House last year. The actor were in the open, the wore plastic masks that were very cheap and fake looking instead of makeup from the Universal Horror Crew and were in the cramped Disaster Quene to try and fit two seasons worth of content into. Now they are in the parade warehouse. Hopefully they can turn it around.)
5. Afterlife: Death's Vengeance (Could be great or it could suck. Just going to have to wait and see.)
6. Resident Evil: Escape From Raccoon City (I know nothing about the franchise besides the fact that the movies suck. I know it's game based, but I've never played it. Silent Hill was a huge letdown for me last year and I think that's why I'm not high on Resident Evil as others are.)
7. Evil Dead (Saw the movie and its just a gore fest. I just don't know what to think about this house yet. It could suck or it could be "Groovy")
8. An American Werewolf In London (Ok. I just got done watching "An American Werewolf In London". I know others enjoy this movie and I'm not here to **** on your opinions of the movie. However, I thought this movie was incredibly boring from start to finish. Yes, the transformation scene was good, but it took forever to get to. For a werewolf movie, I think the "werewolf" was used for all of 15-20 minutes of this movie. The rest was a guy in a hospital bed with bizarre nightmares and being haunted by his friend, male ass shots and watching porno at Picadilli Square. Seriously, if I didn't know any better, I'd think this was a soft core pornonabout a werewolf. Plus the movie ends so abruptly that its jarring. I was looking forward to this house because of the hype the HHN Community has been giving it, but I think this house is going to suck big time. Could anyone explain what I missed in this movie that is going to make this a good house?)
