2/4 properties you mentioned are most likely happening next year(Conjuring & It, and possibly Trick R Treat if we push Murdy enough and if Orlandos is a hit), and I'm as nervous as you to see what happens. There's no reason for AvED & Shining to have black walls as transitions, especially Shining because of the amount of scenic things they have to work with.If they do Conjuring, Stranger Things, It, or Trick 'r Treat next year, I better not see it get butcher like the Shining did.
Ideally, you could do both, but since that's not really realistic for most people, I would recommend that you check out videos of a couple of mazes at Knotts and decide for yourself which one you would rather go to. I'm still in the camp that says this year is pretty ok/good overall, but it definitely is a step down compared to other years; whether that's due to laziness or budget cuts or construction is up for debate, but it definitely doesn't measure up to last year. If you feel that nothing interests you, definitely check out Knott's. They have a different feel to HHN that could be refreshing if you've only gone there for years.I have a question for those of you who have gone. I go to school in NorCal and usually come down for HHN but nothing really interests me this year. I was thinking of going to Knotts as I've never been and it looks fun. Basically I'm asking if anything this year is really worth seeing compared to previous years.
I never said it was due to laziness, just that some people might say that. I personally just think there was a lot of chaos going on behind the scenes with replacements and construction that forced some things through the ringer. Sorry if it came off as standoff-ish.It is definitely not do to laziness. The entire crew of HHN works their asses off throughout the entire year just to be called lazy?!
