    As much as I love HHN, but (I really hate to admit this) I thought Knott's was the better event last year.

    I thought it was great this year but then again I didn't go to Knott's so I don't really have anything to compare it to.

    I take it your friend has never been through Trapped? :)

    I also like how they actually carried through with a main theme and an icon. Trick-or-Treat was one of the most detailed houses HHN has done since Halloween. I haven't really seen HHN do anything of that detail recently. Knott's even had a variety of scare tactics while HHN just stuck with audio trigger and distraction/scare. This is something I hope Uni catches onto.

    HHN has gone down hill a bit in my opinion. Seems every year less effort is being put into the overall event. Sure the maze quality is constantly great, but the scare zones haven't changed much in the past few years. It's becoming stale. I have heard many people say that Knotts is becoming the better event. I plan to attend it this year.

    So true the scare zones are like whatever now. The mazes are good but the scarezones. They really need to change it up a bit. Clowns are annoying not scary imo.

    Klownz needs to be retired for a while. I enjoyed the infected military zone that they had in 2008 the best. They had the infected soldiers walking around and the biohazard van with the big tank from the movie Doomsday. The atmosphere was great. I remember they had a soundtrack of helicopters and gunshots and voices on radios talking about the infection.
