I personally have M&M, Body Collectors, FvJ, and Insidious all above Halloween right now. It's crazy how good those houses are!

Also are you going to wait until right before HHN26 to edit the list or do it after this years event wraps up?
I've only been in Body Collectors and Insidious so far but I feel Halloween blows them both out of the water, as good as they are. Halloween was just a perfect representation of one of the best horror films ever made. It was my personal favorite HHN house I've been in.

I might get crap for bumping this older thread and I don't mean to step on anyone's toes, but reading through this got me thinking about my favorites. And after really thinking about it, I realized that I've personally experienced 87 different HHN houses over the past 16 years. So many great memories!

Anyway, I tried ranking them all and I ended up putting them into 5 tiers. There are 21 houses within my top 2 tiers, so I'm going to go with a top 21 list. I'm sure some will disagree, but here goes:

2nd tier:
21. Universal's House of Horrors - [HHN 22/2012]
20. Body Collectors: Recollections - [HHN 25/2015]
19. Psychoscareapy: Maximum Madness - {HHN 17/2007]
18. All-Nite Die In: Take 2 - [HHN 16/2006]
17. Gothic - [HHN 22/2012]
16. Evil Dead - [HHN 23/2013]
15. The Wolfman - [HHN 19/2009]
14. Screamhouse: Resurrection - [HHN 16/2006]
13. Ghost Town - [HHN 14/2004]
12. An American Werewolf in London - [HHN 23/2013]
11. Jack Presents: 25 Years of Monsters and Mayhem - [HHN 25/2015]
10. Dead Exposure - [HHN 18/2008]
9. Nightingales: Blood Prey - [HHN 21/2011]
8. Body Collectors: Collections of the Past - [HHN 18/2008]
7. The Thing: Assimilation - [HHN 17/2007]
6. Dracula: Legacy of Blood - [HHN 19/2009]

My top 5 houses:
5. A Nightmare on Elm Street: Dreamwalkers - [HHN 17/2007]
4. Friday the 13th: Camp Blood - [HHN 17/2007]
3. Scary Tales III: Once Upon a Nightmare - [HHN 18/2008]
2. Halloween - [HHN 24/2014]
1. Castle Vampyr - [HHN 14/2004]

8 houses fell in my bottom tier:
80. Alice Cooper: Welcome to My Nightmare - [HHN 22/2012]
81. Roanoke: Cannibal Colony - [HHN 24/2014]
82. Doomsday - [HHN 18/2008]

I missed Hellgate Prison--don't remember why, but it was when I was only doing one or two nights a year--but completely agree the other four are easily top 10 houses.
I remember it vividly. The line was cool. It had high gates and search lights looking for prisoners.. It really felt like you were going to enter a prison. It also had that big screen some houses have. I missed those and wished they put more of them at each house. The other thing that stood out was the acting was top notch and they were really intense. They also used foul language t0wards you like real prisoners. Things like "Im going to rape your @@@" Crazy stuff like that. Something I haven't seen since.

I really toyed with the idea of putting the Walking Dead from 26 as #25. Ultimately, because it was the 5th year, I couldn't let it pass. If that was the first, or even 2nd year of that franchise, it may have been even higher.

Interestingly, only 7 of my top 20 houses (35%) are non-Universal IPs.

This lines up well with what I would consider the optimal IP to Original split at the event. With 9 houses, I'd prefer they go with 6 original concepts and 3 IPs. They say hindsight is 20/20, but I feel like if Orlando had stuck with only using 3 IPs per year, they wouldn't have gone through so many of the popular horror properties so quickly and definitely would not have had to resort to re-using some of them so quickly. Just my two cents.

It's interesting, I've heard fairly mixed things about this house in recent years. Prior, people were raving about it. Given we've done "similarish" houses (Silver Screams, as one example), what did this house do that made it rank higher than comparable houses?

Bump. Wondering what y'all think after this year.

For me, this would take a LOT of consideration, but my top 4 (not too sure after that):

#1--Scary Tales: Once Upon A Nightmare
#2--Psycho Scareapy: Maximum Madness
#3--Scarecrow: The Reaping
#4--Texas Chainsaw Massacre (really! LOL)

Top 5 scare-zones:
#1--Skoolhouse
#2--Asylum in Wonderland
#3--Trick R Treat
#4--Deadtropolis: Zombie Siege
#5--Dead Man's Wharf

^Interesting that the most popular original this year was the only one not to make it onto your top 25. :lol:
You mean the Scarecrow one? Haha.. yeah I didn't really care for Castle Vampyr (2004) either and thats a top house for many too. My ratings are generally based on my favorite sets, creativity and how much I like the story. Its all subjective though.

^Do you have every house, all time, ranked? It sounds like you do, LOL. I’m intrigued, wondering if this was still your third best year for houses.
