Where did you read that?Saw in the Hollywood side that this would likely be the last year of CM houses...I can understand and appreciate the need to take a year or two off from them but what really caught my eye was the statement that "Frankenstein and Dracula didn't connect with the GP." Huh? I feel like if mgmt were to hypothetically take a "Mt. Rushmore" of past houses to turn into permanent attractions, the 29 CM house would probably be one of them (along with either of the Halloween 1s).
Where did you read that?
They will almost definitely use this year’s Universal Monsters maze to justify retiring the Universal Classic Monsters for the time being.
GP barely connect with Frankenstein and Dracula as it is, and the Phantom, Quasi, and Hyde probably don’t even register. Not to mention the lack of money and effort into this maze this year. I can’t imagine it being viewed very favorably in Guest surveys…
To be fair to them, they have nearly exhausted their bench of Monsters to play with. I would like to see them encore the original maze with all of them for one last year or maybe a “Horrifying Discoveries” last hurrah where they can tie in Frankenstein/Bride, Invisible Man, and Creature under the guise of a turn of the century scientific exhibition or something.
Would like to see them attempt Creature since he is the only one to be left out entirely (save for Orlando’s one scene in their first Monsters maze).
I feel like next year might be Orlando's last one for a while with the land opening at Epic.That's an educated guess not based on anything material, as far as I know. I have received no indication that they intend to stop doing Monsters houses, though that could happen for any number of reasons.
