So as someone who hasn't been yet - is the animatronic Chucky part of the facade? Is it a legit high quality animatronic?
I have a feeling Hollywood may have the better house here.
Idk.... after seeing the BTS photos, it doesn't look much better. The finale does sound 100x better tho.
Yup, I think Chucky is muuuch better than I initially thought in Hollywood. And because of that, I won't be going into Chucky here on the East Coast with much excitement lol. The pics and clips I've seen and of course reviews from guests have it being a mid house imo.needed to come back to reply,
so i watched hollywood's house, just to see it, and, just from the video alone, it seems much much better. it just did,
their sets looked like a real house, their rooms looked like real sets, their placement of chucky seemed better, seemed like their chuckys had better scares, it looked like a proper "best of" house (just from the vid)
their ending looked much much better. their house its more straight forward, their house feel like a chucky version of HALLOWEEN. if this makes sense? (with more realistic rooms)
(our house its more abstract. like an abstract painting) i might enjoy it more the next time if i see it like an abstract house
Yeah it's pretty sad. I agree. And I wouldn't mind the house so much if Chucky was everywhere. If he was in every room, every corner, constantly coming at you. If every actor had Chucky on them. THEN it would be fun. It would be silly but fun.
What the hell happened here...? I truly gave this house a chance. I marathoned both seasons of the show (and absolutely loved it). I went in with dramatically lowered expectations even. But the hate towards this house was not exaggerated IMO after finally going through it. Empty spaces, minimal effort Chucky placements, etc. Just an utter lack of creativity here. Tragic. Animatronic is fantastic though lol.
Yeah, But like I said before, it's about house design, and this one is just so ugly, dull, not scary, and not funny. It doesn't feel like it's on the level of HHN Orlando's standards, and given the incredibly high bar set by The Black Phone last year, it also is not the locations fault but the designers. Just disappointing. Probably will go in this one dramatically less than the others. If I waited 75-120 minutes for this house as a Single Night Ticket guest like I've seen it climb up to some nights, I'd swear off the event.
We do have custom dialogue, a lot of it is in a pre-show/queue video.I haven’t seen the house or watched a walkthrough, but, was curious: does Orlando’s iteration have any of the custom Chucky dialogue, or is it all existing clips from the show?
This house is like the Fast and Furious of HHN
And that queue video is wildly hard to hear in that echo-y room and desperately needs captions. Kind of insane that captions aren't just a default setting for things like this in this day and age.We do have custom dialogue, a lot of it is in a pre-show/queue video.

Although Hollywood has the upper hand in the 'kill count' aspect of it. Ours is just mostly Chucky yelling at Universal.
Huh. We have the yelling at Universal in our "preshow," too, which involves the Chucky's above the facade calling out various things. I think Chucky being more actively involved during the maze instead of the random clips would've fared better, especially since we have many of the same approximate sequences.
I pressed it and the people behind me pressed it and it really didn't do anythingI just did my second walkthrough and I liked it better. I think I missed a few scares last weekend.
Also, did anyone notice what could be a GAT button? Right next to the fireplace in the second building. My wife noticed it and pushed it, but we weren’t sure if it did anything.
Holy heck in a handbasket, about last night. It did have a GAT and it may have done something so points for that I guess?
I got in the first room, saw the animatronic, and was like alrighty this is gonna be another fun chucky house. This was hands down the worst, laziest, house they have ever had at HHN. Even worse than Pitch Black or whatever that one was back in the day.
May have just gone through a themed Spirt Halloween store where instead of the jumping spider they replace the spider with a Chucky doll. One of the dolls even looked like he was broken or dead. Not sure but the one with the syringe just sort of pushed out on his belly and then dragged back in.
Just as I thought this couldn't get any worse. HHN said hold my beer, and there I saw the monstrosity. A Chucky puppet (just like most the others) with a visible scaractor holding it to move it in and out of scene for the jump scare, where they then began working the lever to make him go stabby stabby.
These poor scaractors are going to have PTSD from working this house. I hate to be so negative especially at opening because the cast work with what they can and try to figure it out.
The only way I can see this house working is if they just dressed all the cast in green screen suits, made it feel like a behind the scenes how it was shot, and turn the camp dial all the way to 11
