Budget cuts and some temporary closures like right now, sure. But to think that Universal will be non-existent next year is ridiculous. HHN prior to the Potter was the resort's savior during hard times, but the resort does well enough with Potter by itself. As long as Butterbeer keeps flowing and wands keep selling, they will be fine.Kris is a deeply, profoundly, stupid person.
I just wanna thank everyone again. This forum was such a fun inviting place to be and it got me through some really hard times. I wanna thank the mods of course for preserving the atmosphere in here. Also wanna thank Legacy and Ringwraith and all the other insiders cause without them we probably would’ve had nothing to really talk about. Thanks everyone and I’ll see y’all on the 2021 speculation board.
This is just drama to get people talking. Universal Orlando will be fine.Kris is a deeply, profoundly, stupid person.
Not as much of a tradition as Orlando but those 10 years in Hollywood were so much fun! Well, 9 and a half...I mean i think topical or not bill and ted are never coming back on this coast, theres not nearly as much of a reason since it was never as much of a tradition here as it was in orlando.
Guessing it’s due to the safety risk of guest operated moving cars and live actors in relation to them, but I’ve also asked that. I wonder why they even began on constructing mazes this year where they might’ve had a better chance with plexus glass divided tram tour/drive through haunt.Serious question: why haven’t they entertained the idea of a drive through haunt? Surely you can create something that allows guests to drive through a portion of the backlot or soundstage for a unique HHN experience. It’s wildly successful in Tokyo right now.
So we don’t have another 1986 incident.
Makes sense, I wouldnt be surprised if she was reluctant to have her face and brand in an event running during covid, but now that its cancelled I dont think her maze would get scrapped. Considering shes one of if not the biggest musical artist in the mainstream right now with a huge following and also just so happens to be a big fan of the event, I dont think either party would be super willing to drop out right away if it was avoidable.Ellish did not get scrapped AFAIK
I think there’s a way to pull it off without having actors directly in the vehicles’ paths. Require engines to be turned off during the show portion, hit the house lights if a car ignites, and instruct actors not to perform directly in front of the vehicles.Or if it was more of a Halloween version of XMas lights drive thru, have actors performing on platforms.So we don’t have another 1986 incident.
Would be pretty sick if it had constant motion with actors incorporated into the sets in looping scenes. Pretty impractical, but imagine a boat in the lake to represent creature, yelling townspeople in the windows of little Europe rioting about Frankenstein, Norman guarding the car, maybe incorporate other universal horror IPs like the insidious house with projections and live actors peering through the back of the van, probably Purge in WotW, etc. very unrealistic, but there definitely is some potential of down correctly and with the normal level of quality that Universal usually provides in the parkI think there’s a way to pull it off without having actors directly in the vehicles’ paths. Require engines to be turned off during the show portion, hit the house lights if a car ignites, and instruct actors not to perform directly in front of the vehicles.Or if it was more of a Halloween version of XMas lights drive thru, have actors performing on platforms.
But, yeah, I get it. Only takes one accident to shut it down.
