My dream lineup if I ever ran the event for a year(and rights issues didn’t exist), in Orlando, would be this:
Icon: The Storyteller
Theme: There are no Happy Endings
Icon Houses: Dungeon of Terror: Reopened & Scary Tales: Hell Freezes Over
The Conjuring: The Cases of Ed & Lorraine Warren - SS22
This house would encompass both Conjuring 1&2. I know the house that was supposed to come in 27 was to be in Tent 2, but I think the maze would be better suited in a SS since the environments in both movies are pretty large. Especially the house in Conjuring 1
IT - SS24A
Based solely on Chapter 1. Pretty self explanatory; facade would be the Neibolt House and finale would be in the Sewers.
Scream - SS24B
This house would be based on Scream 1-4. The emphasis would be placed mostly on 1 and would begin in Casey’s house and end in the Barn from Scream 4.
The Strangers: Angels of Death - Shrek Theater 2
This house would start off in the house from the first movie, but a large emphasis of the maze(about %60-%70 of the maze) would take place in the Trailer Park from 2. Soundtrack would be filled with 80s songs
A Nightmare on Elm Street - Sprung Tent 2
Based solely off the first movie. Would be reminiscent of Halloween(24) in terms of retelling the original movie of a franchise in great detail with Easter eggs to other movies.
Paradise City - SS21
An original based on 1984, We Happy Few, & Bioshock. A dystopian city that has dark secrets, an expansion of Saws n Steam except more grandiose and focusing expanding the lore. This would not be the mega house, but would be in SS21 solely because of large the sets would be, similar to Resident Evil except a bit longer.
Vamp ‘94: The College Years - Sprung Tent 1
The vamps invade a fraternity at Carey University during a back to school party. Grunge vampires, New jack vampires, and tons of early-mid 90s music.
Dungeon of Terror: Reopened - MiB Tent
The roadside haunt known as the Dungeon of Terror is reopened to the public, but all is not well as The Storyteller and her minions have overtaken the haunt. Would be semi-reboot of DoT Retold, except this would be a cheesy roadside haunt/gift shop and would feature more gore. Also would ditch the weird pig masks and hillbilly aspect
Scary Tales: Hell Freezes Over - B108N
The Snow Queen has taken over the land of fairy tales, and has enslaved all of the heroes and villains of children’s stories. Stories would include Frozen, Jack and the Beanstalk, Miss Muffet, Pinocchio, Tarzan, Jungle Book, Aladdin, Beauty & The Beast, among others.
Children of the Evil - Parade Building
Deep in the cornfields of Nebraska lies a church, where a cult of children has turned to an ancient evil for survival. Should you enter the church, there is only one way out: Being sacrificed. This house would draw inspiration from Children of the Corn and would be set up as a 70s B movie. House would start off in the church, work it’s way through, enter the sacrificial barn, and then end in a Scarecrow style Cornfield.
Ripped from the Silver Screen - Producion Central
The IP photo op zone. Think Altars of Horror or The Harvest
Freak Show of the Bizarre - Central Park: Similar to Cirque du Freak from 19.
Body Collectors: Silence of the Night - New York
The Body Collectors have crossed over into 1920’s New York to find new victims.
The Fog - South Street/San Francisco
This zone would cover both South Street & San Francisco and would be based off the 1980 movie.
Universal’s Classic Monsters - Hollywood
Would take place during a 1950s film festival based on the Classic Monsters, coincidentally they would also rise and kill everything there.
