    October 14 & 21 have been added to the Scareactor Dining ticket page.
    I was hoping that one would open up sometime between October 1-3.

    Last year we got food at FFB right before they closed. Took it into Moes and ate there during the lockdown. It was far less crowded that Duff Brewery and air conditioned. It quickly became our go to spot.

    Thanks that's good to know, I avoided that S&S because I thought you had to wait out in the sun.

    No guarantee they will do it this year but it was great. Once in Moes we couldn't to to Duffs and vice versa. Most nights it was like a dozen people-- perfect start to the night. We'd usually wait till Duffs got released then lie surly strolled behind them.

    I'm looking for this info as well. I may do Moe's or Duff's on Thursday 9/24 if available and then do Finnegans Friday and Saturday during AP nights.

    I haven't gone yet but last year it was parade building, followed by the two tent houses. The houses opened like 15 minutes apart from each other so it was a perfect stress-free three houses in about 30 minutes.

    I did it on Saturday night. It was fun. Body Collector, Wolfman, Clown(s), and The Caretaker were there roaming for pictures. One digital download is included. The food was good and all you can eat. Afterwards they let us directly into Freddy vs Jason with no wait. But don't delay because the mob from s&s came running at the same time.

    We went last night and had a better time than expected. We would do this again in a heartbeat.

    The food was really good and the staff was incredible. I know some folks balk a bit about seeing kids at HHN but we know our daughter and she really is loving the event (her second year and she'll turn 10 next month).

    You get to do a photo after you eat and while we were waiting for the caretaker to come out for the photo, my daughter got to spend time talking to the story teller (no one else was around doing photos at the time)....it was just different to see, she was explaining to my daughter that she doesn't have a knive, that she has one side of a scissor, later, when we were in the zone, when we walked up to her stage, she got her scissor half out and showed my daughter...I know this all sounds strange about my parenting skills, but my daughter knows it is all show...anyway, my daughter felt special being remembered and is really feeling a connection to the characters at this year's event and memories such as these are priceless!

    Jack was not there for us anyway, we had caretaker and story teller for the digital down load that was included (we had three photos since we were a party of three).

    While dining, we had wolfman, a chainsaw clown, and one of the pumpkin head dudes hanging with us that we could take or own photos with.

    We've had dinner before at Finnegins while waiting for a stay and scream which has worked out for us, but when we have done the APH event, we have just waited in a line. To me, it is nice to eat dinner while waiting, then get let out.

    We got our AP band from the folks in that area(we thought we were going to try for the first Bill and Ted seating) and they were willing to give us an escorte over to the AP area, but we told them we were good with just doing Freddy verses Jason...they let us out at the same time as (I assume Finns)...anyway good food and better atmosphere for the stay and scream wait in my opinion and the 4:30 seating did not seem that crowded...after dinner, there were drinks available via a portable HHN drink stand in the Monster's cafe patio that was used just sat like a stay and scream location save it had seats...it really was a cool and relaxed start for my family and we were a little closer to the sound stage for than the other stay and scream area that came running when that area of the park was declared cleared of day guest...
