What if Black Spot isn’t leaving?

What if it’s just getting a new subtitle
The Black Spot: Vampirates
First they delay Iron Gwazi then Vampirates...pass cancelled

No the one behind the tortoises
I believe that the Santa's house stays up there all year now, as they haven't removed the walls surrounding it like before when they would use it for a seating area in the summer time.

Early predictions for the house line up are going to be Motel Hell, Death Water Bayou, Simon's Slaughterhouse, the vampire house, and whatever replaces The Residence
Oh yeah, all the houses minus the one in IG park are in permanent locations now

I thought they moved Santa to the warehouse by Sand Serpent but whatevs

Turthfully, I miss the house in the bumper cars area, broke things up a bit

That was used for the Rudolph M&G but they moved it into the Pantopia theater last year for whatever reason

Also a little more on that Vampire house (skip to 6 mins)

I am certain the Santa's house structure does not stay up, just the tent.
Pretty sure it is just a rest area now with some tables.

All of the houses are in permanent structures now, which is nice because:

A) They can keep them up and don't have to completely disassemble each year

B) Use the spaces (like Gwazi field) in more creative ways for HOS

Also, I would like to argue that the loss of a 6th house would mean that they can go a bit bigger with a new one or maybe two each year

As well as continuing to plus scarezones...which, let's be honest..HOS excells at

Are they still taking those walls down though? All the walls were still up there last time I was there

Welcome to Purgatory Penitentiary, where afterlife sentences are served with a vengeance. Incarceration is just the beginning, as maniacal guards shuffle fresh meat down dark and lawless paths for processing. Surviving the prison yard leads to maximum security and confinement that is anything but solitary. There are only two options for inmates here: breakout alive or be devoured in detention.

That promo image is dope as hell

Serious Vampire mixed with Club Muse vibes
Agreed, it sounds like a fun concept for a vampire house. Kinda' getting some Killuminati vibes a la' HHN Singapore 2018.

*shrugs* Not as interested as this one as The Forgotten. I know from the sounds of things, HoS can do a good prison house (Death Row: Vengance), but there's definitely a zombie fatigue.

Zombie costumes are cheap

I did really enjoy DRV though and think they could do some fun stuff with this concept

The Forgotten is waaay more intriguing tho

How do you make the name “Purgatory Penitentiary” and then make the house name “Cell Block Zombies”? :lol:

There were ghosts trapped in the afterlife...and now they are zombies...I don't see what you're not understanding :tease:



But actually the purgatory storyline sounds much more intriguing to me honestly

The voodoo chants have died off, replaced by blood-curdling howls…and your screams. Dark magic has manifested into darker curses, as ravenous werewolves claw their way through the bayou on the hunt for human flesh. Beneath the midnight sky, the moonlight reveals glowing eyes, bloodstained teeth and an inescapable fate for all who enter the swamp

Looks like they don't wanna' give up one of their better houses just yet, though I'd rather they'd have built a new werewolf house from the ground up instead of tossing them late into a previous house for the 2nd time. (First time was Vampire Casino: Reversal of Fortune.)
