Yes, this is a $50 upcharge
So, $50 to put on some goggles, and that is it?
I feel like guest services have really been going out of their way to make people happy this year and have been doing an excellent job.
The VR "goggles" is only a very small portion of it.
What is the big portion?
It's mostly like the other HHN houses but more detailed and more interaction with the actors. It then has a VR portion that then goes into an escape room portion.
Here is a rundown of what happens inside. If you plan on going do not read this. It is better to go in not knowing for the few surprises that are in store.
I went the 1st weekend so I have heard that the VR has had some improvements. All in all I'm glad I did it but I do think it is overpriced.
Sets are top notch
Actors do a great job and there is a lot of interraction
The VR is integrated into the story
Too expensive for what you get
Graphics are not up to par on the VR
Everything feels rushed
Final puzzle is confusing
Not scary !!!
I feel that this experience doesn't go with HHN other than the LT aspect. It doesn't mesh with the event and feels very separated from it. There is very little horror during the experience.
It's not like an HHN house at all
Well I meant that in the sense that it's themed rooms and hallways with actors. Really the whole thing is pretty unique so it's kind of hard to describe.
Silly question ... On the lanyard you get at the end, the icon of the keys has the initials "G. B." on it ... Anyone know what it stands for? Friends and I just did the house and are curious.
My wife and I did this at 12:00 last night and actually did the whole experience as just a 2 piece, because there was absolutely no one else there and according to the staff, there hadn't been for a while... This may be because we chose a late slot or maybe because its not been very popular, who can say? I would say that I'm glad we did it by ourselves though, as we ended up 'completing' the experience and potentially wouldn't have with a couple of randomers. If you want the same result, try for a late booking.
Let me just say that my wife has NOT been a fan of the regular houses. She's done them all with me reluctantly, but she has been terrified throughout. As you sign the waiver for this thing, there was a staff member talking it through with us and she started physically shaking when he mentioned that we would not be together at certain points. In hindsight, I can see why they go through this with you, but it's definitely overkill in terms of the experiences overall intensity as whilst it's thrilling, it's not horror.
Ultimately, my wife loved it! As did I!
It made me feel like I was in my own private movie, where the consequences were real and we were in actual danger. The cast (lots of them) interactions were superb and the locations we went to were brilliant. I'm not gonna say much more than that, as you should really go into this thing fresh.
I'd say we were in and out in under 20 minutes, which you could definitely argue as being on the expensive side for $50 each. On the other hand, there are times in life when you have to treat yourself to a steak instead of a cheeseburger and as a HHN fan, I am so glad we experienced it!
