Ideas for Houses (Get Ready to Hate Me)

Took a good amount of inspirations from the original Tarzan stories; his appearance isn’t like how Hollywood portrays him who actually had a hair body that made look both closely and eerily like an ape other than in a near perfect muscular form with a skimpy loincloth on nor he was raised by gorillas like in the Disney version. Unlike my Jungle Book concepts which leans more on the Scary Tales side and is considered as an unconventional fairy tale, La is a little more pulpier like what you see in the old comics from the 30’s to 50’s.

Hey everyone!


After MONTHS of researching, writing, experimenting, adding, constructing, editing, updating, improving, layering, and whatever I was doing with my second themed event concept of Halloween Horror Nights to capture the essence and bring a breath of fresh air at my best effort as fan content while I was simultaneously breaking the cliches and embracing the tropes of the horror genre, I can finally say that it looks done enough to show y’all this big package called Jungles of Fear. It’s something I was working on before one of this year’s scare-zones was announced, and I probably started it around maybe late January or early February at the earliest. I even included some writer’s notes to avoid not only some questions, but also to make sure no one gets confused and to prevent any confrontations and negative bad behaviors for some good discussions about this.

 

I took a step further on the aesthetic inspired by not only some of the fan demands and suggestions on Discord and elsewhere who wanted to see more of it aesthetically, but also the myths, the folktales, the movies, the cryptids, literature, some random stuff, original thoughts, previously done houses and zones that goes well with certain vibes to fit this, and most occasionally video games with the total of 14 houses, 10 original music compositions, 7 exclusive themed costumes as merchandise, 6 zones, 6 food booths, 5 roaming hordes, 5 rides, 2 shows, 2 overlay experiences, one tribute store, and one icon character for one big firing event. 

 

I know what you’re thinking, the totals are ridiculously too massive, and there’s no way they could do that in reality, especially with today’s level of crowds, which I get it a hundred percent, but I wanted to make sure the variety is there, so it can be immersive and not too repetitive while keeping the icon aspects as the most represented part of it other than doing a cohesive take. Creatively, I wasn’t overthinking too much, and virtually everything is the same in terms of theming, but they’re all unique in terms of occurrence, style and setting. If this were to happen now in most fashion, it would be a big creative risk to take.

 

As for the event icon for this, I didn’t create a new character from scratch nor did I felt the need to and instead pulled out one from the public domain for a horror treatment and a redo that has the creative potential as its own version(s). It’s obvious, but it thematically makes sense and since some of you guys read much of my haunted house concepts here on this site, I went with Mowgli from the Jungle Book to play the icon role for this, and this particular character is a fitting choice for this concept than what anybody would think more so than say Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz or Snow White while leaning on the original stories by Rudyard Kipling than the Disney adaptations and taking inspirations from the Hindu lore and the Indian culture for an authentic touch in a fictional way. At Orlando, Universal had used a public domain character before to be on the top figure statues with the famous Urban Legend Bloody Mary, which was the inspiration of my decision. Unfortunately, they can’t reuse her again at some point in the future for some weird copyright reason, so I thought to myself “What if they went with an alternative instead to represent the PM category?”

 

Got several more themed concepts that I could try in the next few years. I wanna try out many different music-related concepts along with the Slasher Horror sub-genre, and I also want to take a step further in Japan and India, since they’re the most represented countries in my own work of material. Could I use another character from the public domain as an icon? Maybe so, but it depends which one would work well for another overall theme like let’s say if I made my own version of Mulan for a horror treatment and everything is related to China and Hercules for a Greek themed event as another example. But in the meantime, I’ll be taking a break for the most part until Christmas is officially over in January. I hope you guys enjoyed my newest HHN themed event concept of mine, thank you so much for having the time to read this, and lemme know your thoughts. Tell me your favorites, what do you like about this idea, your questions that I could answer for y’all, and what I need to improve with this. The event may be over until next year, but with this on paper, I can officially start the opening that goes on everyday for you to read at any time you’re in and anywhere you’re at.

 

I now welcome you to Halloween Horror Nights: Jungles of Fear!

Happy Haunts!

I was able to give my very first music house concept a vast update for more details, additions, and better quality of writing right before Thanksgiving kick in. The reason for this was for me to get ready for the next event themed concept I’ll work on next year after Christmas called Face The Music with a Conductor as an icon, which I’ve already thought of a full name for him. His backstory will be first for this, then I’ll make some new zones and houses with the best variety I could branch out while I’ll still give some old concepts a vast update.

With Christmas over until this December, I’m right now working on the themed event concept of Halloween Horror Nights: Face The Music, starting with the main doc first by adding a premise and icon backstory, an overlay for the Archway, music playlist, and original music compositions. Could add more if necessary, but I wanna make sure it looks done enough to show y’all what it looks like so far before it’s done again. I’ll also give my old concepts a cast update as well for more details, additions, and better quality of writing, but it could take for Face The Music to be similarly on par with Memories In Darkness and Jungles of Fear cause I’ll be very busy at work to remodel at my job other than my full house family, which are always a top priority.

This marks the beginning of me making my next themed event concept of Halloween Horror Nights called Face The Music. Unlike the last two, I created a new character from scratch rather than using any existing characters as an icon who is an undead conductor, composer, and a victim of the infamous 27 curse - the cause of the death is not what you think it is - named Adam Williams whose surname is a nod to the legendary film composer John Williams with his own powers and abilities while using his baton as a weapon to cause terror. I think you’ll be impressed with the character’s backstory I’ve written, and there are some surprises I don’t wanna say too much cause I want y’all to read then react. Hope you guys enjoy what this looks like so far!

I got my newest haunted house concept done a week ago. This is my take of doing a New Orleans themed house with Jazz and Voodoo that takes place during the Roaring Twenties. I was really going all out on this. I hope you guys enjoy this newest piece of mine. Next I’ll work on another concept that is music-related.

Hey everyone! Just got another new house concept done that took me more than a week, which is also music-related and this was one of the most requested ideas from readers on Discord. Just like what I did with Nine Inch Nails’ The Downward, I also gave My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade a house treatment that is lyrically about death and the reflection of life. I was inspired by one interpretation that was written by one fan on Reddit at the band’s official page, which made it more easier for me to adapt, translate, re-listen to the music, and understand the lyrics more with a bit of my own take to offer a unique experience done by a fan like myself for an offering that will blow y’all away. This isn’t like any other concepts I had done before, but man I am so proud of myself for all the hard work, effort, and inspiration. I hope you guys enjoy my newest piece!

I recently stumbled upon the archived content of Halloween Horror Nights in Japan and was blown away by the creativity and sheer terror that was showcased in their past events. From haunted houses based on Japanese folklore to terrifying scare zones filled with iconic horror characters, it's clear that Halloween Horror Nights in Japan was a unique and unforgettable experience.
