  1. Coming from Los angles I am going to HHN solo Sept 23, 24, 25 and Oct 2. Going with friends on Sept 29, 30 and Oct 1. Staying at Cabana Bay. anyone down to meet up? I have ROF with Express.
  2. Ya, doing the same thing, trying the first stab thing, hopefully we will be in the mazes by 6:30! Being already in the park always worked nicely in Florida. Regardless, skipping the front entry mob scene should be nice.
  3. Anyone else buy the 4 or 12 night pass? I got the 12 night pass and plan on going about 8 nights, including the first two weekends.
  4. Bill and Ted being canceled for this stupid reason is lame. Universal was fine with the shows content for the past month. I think it is very weak of Universal to give into D list media outlets. I am attending again tomorrow night and the lines are going to beyond horrible with Terror Tram closing early and no Bill and Ted (let’s face it, that show had a higher hourly capacity than any maze). Anyone think that Universal will give refunds to unused tickets? Without a front of a line ticket it is pointless.
  5. OK...I guess I was wrong. Murdy said via Twitter today that he is also the voice of mother bates at the Psycho house for this years event. I am really bummed out we are getting the same ol, getting worse every year, terror tram. Something that started off really cool in 2006/2007 has become a boring, predictable, randomly themed, repeat every year. I was really hopeful of a truly reimagined experience. I am now starting to think that the big tent by NY street on the backlot will house two mazes and that will be the last unknown maze location. No Soundstage. I am still hopeful.
  6. It could still be in the same area of the backlot as the maze (NY area), but two seperate attractions and queue lines... If terror tram is in its regular location how are they going to get people to the backlot maze? The Kong loading area they used a few years back is now a maze.
  7. So is it pretty much confirmed that TT is going to be in its normal location? The area by the house we assume is being built off NY street has a few spots where the GP could not do much damage to the sets. Around London, the grassy area that has a wall/backdrop all along one side. If they are filming in this area how can a maze be there (crowds, sounds...).
  8. A few logistical questions/thoughts: If TT is in its normal spot how will you access the maze at NY street on the backlot? They will not let the GP have that much access to the backlot or expect them to walk that far. Will they offer a King Kong express type tram separate from TT? Where would this load from? Might that big tent off NY street house 2 mazes? Any updates or new sightings at the soundstage next to Transformers (28 I believe)? Last point, I think it is safe to assume there will be no version of the frequent fear pass offered this year.
  9. Are we getting a 7th maze this year? Will Terror Tram be in NY? How will that work with the Walking Dead Maze (Same drop off)? We know Mummy and JP overflow, Peruvian Courtyard, HOH, NYC backlot (?), where else? This could be an amazing year or not so much...time will tell.
  10. Do you have the link or wording? don't want to get there to be turned away. thanks.
  11. They are now calling this Thurs and Sunday "Killer Deal Nights". Will the FFP "Killer Deal Nights Pass" be honored these additional dates as it was Saturday Oct 1?
  12. Why does buying HHN tickets feel like buying airline tickets or a car? The constant fluctuation of prices is pretty insane and not a theme park standard, in fact I don't think anyone has ever done this before.
  13. They also just lowered the Annual Pass prices for all remaining Thursday and Sunday nights. The discounted price online was $50.99 ($11.01 saving) now is $41.99 ($20.01 saving). So an additional $9 saving per night. Sucks for everyone that already bought tickets!!!
  14. Six years of the same crap getting worse. Enough is enough. We need a new tram area or go back to using the queue for mazes constructed in the tram maintenance/storage area. Without the Bates maze the Terror Tram is really horrible and a 100% repeat.....again.
  15. If it is so busy they should have never offered any discount and stop exploiting social media like the biggest Halloween event whores. FOTL and GA are still not "Souled" out for tomorrow. Also props to Knotts for doing this Sunday (and many more off peak nights). GREED! Nowhere else raises advance prices at a whim before events. Do we all agree that is shady and bad business?
  16. Speaking of GREED, Universal is up to their trick from last year again. It appears the "advance" ticket price for this friday just went up $10 dollars online to $47.99. I guess as we learned last year with FOTL passes, Universal's definition of "Advance ticket price" is until we feel like raising it. I hate when they do this shit. It should be the same price until it sells out or day of event. This is really bad business.
  17. HHNH loves to recycle props..cough...all the scarezones.... At least now they are being creative and recycling from Grinchmas instead of HHN...lol Maybe the Grinch will be hiding in there.
  18. Let's not forget about Annual Pass Holders. Universal really screwed them this year too. Even going back to 1997 annual pass holders had huge discounts, seeing as you have access to the park all year and are really only interested in the special themed event. The discounts this year SUCK. I am very interested to see how the hardcore fans, general public (social media), and annual passholders have an effect on ticket sales. They also really used to reley on night of sales. As mentioned before I wonder if all their "EVENT WILL SELL OUT" and overselling of tickets, running out of parking in past years will have a toll on walk ups this year (the lesson Knotts learned).
  19. Wolfman maze idea AMAZING. Execution CRAP. Orlando did it right a few years back. Ours looks like recycled HOH crap. I was really expecting a lot more retheming. As of today (well after rehearsals) top of the stairs has a new display, empty room after spinning tunnel has xmas trees (WTF) and a few cadavers in the lab. So many scenes do not jive with the Wolfman. How can they be explained/justified? For being our only real building/"soundstage" this location disappoints every year. Just leave it what it is...HOH, stop trying to fool yourself/us.
  20. Carl's is really not much of a discount, if any from online prices: 9/23 -$37 (Save $25) 9/24 and 10/31 -$41 (Save $21) 9/30 and 10/9 -$46 (Save $16) 10/1,7,16,20,27,30 -$51 (Save $11) 10/8, 14,21,23,28,29- $56 (Save 6) 10/15,22 - $62 UniversalStudiosHollywood.com/CarlsJr (Last I checked link was not live) WOW! Universal is being very greedy this year all the way around with tickets (GA,FFP, FOTL, RIP). People on Facebook have been going after them about all the price hikes and product value. Hope it works out for them....
  21. Front Of The Line passes totally affect the stand by lines. That is like saying Fastpass at Disney don't affect the standby line. At Horror Nights it decreases the hourly stand by capacity by a minimum of 25% but usually closer to 50%. So the stand by line moves twice as slow (60 min stand by turns into 90 to 120 min). With single entry FOTL Uni is able to control and put a number on your pass (with unlimited entry you could do 2 mazes or 30 in a night) as far as overall event/attraction capacity. Now with single use FOTL they can sell double the amount. They saw a demand and a way to make more money and they jumped on it. I think the event theme this year should be greed. It will be interesting to see how this year plays out for them with a very limited/non-existent multi night pass, one time entry FOTL, and overall very minimal ticket discounting in comparison to last year.
  22. For Terror Tram this year having Scream it is sooo stupid they cut the line at 9pm (2 hours into the event). Why even bother? Even if they REALLY push it and do 4,000 per hour still so many people won't be able to experance (and those who do will be at a stand still). I think it is time to move it away from the houses or scrap it and get some soundstage houses. Maybe the limited capacity on thurs and Sun has something to do with the majorly cut back Killer Night Pass?
  23. Trust me, if they could sell booze they would. Such a HUGE money maker and they LOVE money!!! Hollywood is not Orlando. Booze/Gangs(drunk gangs) is what killed the event in 2000. How could they make it profitable without...fast forward 2006 FOTL Passes. Only time you will see booze at HHN Hollywood is park buyouts.
