  1. that would work. ^^ also i dont think the first 3 films have the environments either but if you just take the ghostface character and stay true to the concept of scream you can do an awesome job with just pure minds do something original with it murdy i beg of you. thats basically with they did with the TT. NOTHING now can represent Scream besides the ghostface characters around the backlot. (waits for DTH to come back on and prove how all 3 would work for environments ) lol
  2. ugh tell me about it. how long will it be before murdy finds out the old regular SZ themes wont work any longer ? ugh it be nice if they took the fire cannons and through it down on the lower lot so they can at least have something down there. theres so many SZ effects and different scares they can try out. It was exciting when WTH was announced and now its just getting old. Im not saying to get rid of the fire cannons but they can use it else where. Also WTMN is a nightmare lol it doesnt have to be structured.(randoms better in this case) Everything seen is capable of being in a nightmare.
  3. lol i have to DEFINITIVELY agree with this. DTH said it as if ghostface is as scary as the infamous michael myers. It would be like if scream had a maze and than you say " if scream can be done. so can halloween" Ghostface is a major well known icon in the horror universe but i still DONT and WONT consider him to play with the big boys ever. (Freddy, Jason, learthface,mike and a few others)
  4. thanks guys i know our HHN has come a LONG way and has grown tremendously so im anxious to see how we face off against are older siblings currently. I know we wont be fully up to speed with them yet but i just want to know eachs pros and cons and also things that one park has that triumphs over the other.
  5. the trailer was playing on opening weekend not sure how you missed it lol and i agree dth i dont believe they needed all the films to make a tram or maze. They clearly didnt even put to use the rights from one of the films
  6. he probably tweets it a hour or 2 before the event starts. i seen a few people use the codenames and get cards its pretty neat. Anywho nice review evil clown. im surprised to see you didnt like alice cooper it was a very well constructed maze but oh well everyone cant like it i love la llorona to but does that mean well be gettin a repeat next year 0.o (knocks on wood*) i sure hope not
  7. yea im not sure why one cant be in front of it. hell if there were gonna re-use clowns they should of done it there. Also the western street wasnt our best scarezone but i def. like just having it there for extra possible scares or a way to keep me in the mood. I just hope it comes back next year maybe a western style version based on a silder scarezone
  8. ahahaah freak i noticed the poster to on my last visit. i didnt notice it opening weekend though. Ugh like DTH says as longs as its NOT hotc im all for it. I know nothing of the concept or anyting either yet so i cant really visualize how it would go. I was figuring if we were to get another 3D maze next year it would be based on his halloween movie coming out in 3d next year. hmm who knows i guess well just see how this goes....back to the HOTC thread there was a incident that occurred last week . I guess some guy and his friends were causing problems somewhere in the maze. Security came and handled it rather quickly and the maze resumed
  9. i think it was because the hispanic culture is know to eat alot of pork...im not 100 % sure though 0.o
  10. YES thats the one ! i wasnt really sure though because on my last trip i didnt see it so i thought maybe there wasnt one. thanks for clarifying this trev. Oh and i seen you on friday again keep up the good job
  11. What i find annoying the most is universal giving these "special" deals for only online service. Why cant this be allowed to people who want to buy these things at the park. For example , the FFP pass. Was it fair to not only strip the rights from the ticket, sell a small limited amount, and up the price but decrease the number of date but to also basically only make this deal availabe to people with credit cards. WTF is that ? i had to go through twist and turns to find someone to allow me to use there card. I find it personally more easier to just get these tickets at the park and for them to strip us of that right to was plain ridiculous. I hope this "major buissness decisions" wont lead back to them re-using the big 3 over continually.
  12. zombieman when you say a "extra cup" for 1.99 extra are you meaning a whole different designed cup or the same one but for cheaper ?
  13. Well i wanted to make a few adjustments to my review thread for a couple of things. Lets start off : The Thing : Assimilation First time around was a let down. Not sure because of the timing i went (which was no more than 30mins after the park opened) so i would find that strange but in all it didnt par up to my expectations. After my last visit on friday i can say i was a bit more please with the results. I got scared from beginning to end. I noticed more SA's this time around and the dark room was actually done better as i pictured it should of been. I noticed the SA in there this time around so that was better. All in all it was a good experience this time around. grade: B+ La LLorona : Villas de Almas Perdidas Nothing much changed here besides the SA's becoming more agreesive. I was also scared from beginning to end here and being seperated from everyone throughout the whole maze didnt make it even less creepier than it already was. Loved the stilt walkers and all. The grade will remain the same. Scares,enviroments,effects: changed to 10/10 If the TT couldnt get any worst it did once they removed the fence maze and added in a bunch of soundproof walls. I noticed more SA's and got more scares this time around so that was a plus. Sighs* are Scarezones are becoming lazy. After next year i dont want to see anymore freakz, klownz and zombies..or anything else that ends with a "z" in that case. Reapers was such a let down knowing what they could of done with this concept. It was lazily done and if changing the costumes is enough to convince you its "all new" than hey thats what floats your boat. I except more from all the SZ's next year. Seems like there doing a good job with decorations in 3 out of the 5 SZ's but its old so maybe thats why im bored with the concept. Actually Freakz can deserve more decorations. Zombies was the only one really executed beautifully IMO. Klownz to but hey thats a repeat. One thing i didnt like this year in the SZ's was lack of fog. :/ Hopefully next year it will be back to the method of "not being able to tell whats in front of me." Next year grading the entrance SZ and lower lot SZ im showing no mercy. Theres absolutely no reason why they cant add decorartions and props down there. For christ sakes you did it in 07 so you damn well can do it again. You took one step forward and than two more back universal. Also the front just needs some more props to feel in the gap between there and new york street. And im expecting the return of our 6th sz again next year themed nicely and decorated beautifully. it was a huge let down to see we hopped down to 5 scarezones. John just needs to take a trip to orlando to see how nicely there SZ's are done one year and than maybe he will see what were talking about. Also we NEED sliders to return next year i miss seeing those guys slide up behind you and give you a good scare. Also we have the potential to have many more scarezones. One can be from the side of the shrek venue extending all the way to the bathrooms. Another can be in front of the simpsons. Another can be from the the flintstones bbq to the escalators. Basically what im saying is theres TOO MANY empty gaps !! HHN tries to advertise theres "nowhere to run or hide" but really we have huge gaps of spaces that say otherwise. This is what seperates 2006 from all other years. 2006 was the only year i noticed there was NOWHERE to run. We had scareactors on the escalators, food courts..heck even the bathrooms( not intentionally lol ). Point is all the empty gaps of spaces i just named were covered up believe it or not. Maybe because we only had 2 mazes and a TT so they had more money to buy more SA's. I STRONGLY encourage murdy next year to put just as much effort in the SZ's as he does for the mazes. It can be done . especially with the flow of cash they'll be getting from transformers. It just takes me out of the element personally when im walking from the end of new york street to the lower lot with no scares or anything in particular to keep me in the mood. I think ive written enough so ill save my final closing statement for another time lol
  14. I know i actually liked the fence maze :/ it wasnt much but it did enhance the experience and was a good replaceable for the sheets maze. I wanna boycott to bring them both back next year lol
  15. Creeper make sure to do a hollywood and orlando comparison thread to know how were matching up with our older siblings and enjoy yourself !! I respect murdy as a person but criticism is needed not quit sure of why you apologized. Without it we probably would have a return of freddy and jason. You spoke your mind and there nothing wrong with that. Lol and i think i got a different experience from you and dth on the escalators. I heard everything from start to finish and quit frankly alice coopers voice was annoying
  16. ^^^ that would be a better change in the Wotw sets. In all guys im sure we can agree you dont have to be a Scream fan to be upset about what they did to the TT. Horror Fans in general know ghostface as a icon and expected more. I dont even want to call it a Scream TT knowing how it poorly represented the films. Also i think they did have a video for freakz and tweaks but im not sure. Ill be sure to do a lookout for it on my next visit. Lets just hope scream gets its better due next year. Honestly something has to change on the TT experience period. It doesnt matter which icon represents the TT year after year....were still gonna have the same old route, the same old themes and the same layouts. Nothings going to change. We need a NEW route ! Using the BS excuse of " fans get to walk on the universal backlot for the first time" is played out . Honestly the best TT was probably back in 2006 followed by 2009 and 2008. The year murdy can use the sets on the upper back lot (western street, new york etc.) is the year were ill truly know were getting our moneys worth. And instead of giving us a ending of getting sprayed by water why not just add the king kong experience to the end for a 2 for 1 deal ?
  17. nice review creeper. I'm glad to see im not the only one who believes are SZ are beginning to just look average while New York street is basically the only SZ up to par with orlandos expectations. The rest are just there to entertain the guest i guess. The SA's always do a awesome job but it doesnt even feel like a way to keep you in the atmoshere anymore. IDK thats just me. Also im not sure how you guys were confused with the overall theme of Alice Cooper. It was actually #1 on my list with la llorona as a exception for matching up with 1st place. Anywho its just as freddys nightmare but a different persons perspective. Theres not much to know besides its just one big nightmare from the mind of alice cooper. Also i dont feel as Hostel was a repeat of saw. Def. similar layouts but i found hostel to actually be better than saw. Saw was just basically a walk through of the movie and watching victims getting tortured. didnt do much on the scare factor for me. Hostel kind of played both parts which is probably what i liked about it. Anyways, great review though. Im thinking about making a closing statement thread for myself on the event rather than a review.
  18. what a great review zombieman. A few comments i felt rather disturbing during your meet and greet. murdy said he could do jason and freddy for the next 10 years and attract crowds ? lol lets hope he's joking because i find that highly foolish to say. No hard feelings to murdy. The VIP experience seems rather cool. The VIP lounge sounds even more intresting. Now if they would just add a few scareactors down there on the streets than i would find this fully worth the money. otherwise i couldnt see myself spending that much on a experience. Also i agree with you on the HoH. Its gotten to the point of either you put some REAL LONG time and EFFORT in this overlay to make it a considerable maze or just leave it the same. I hope they can find the effort to put some hard work into this overlay to make it something new otherwise its no different than what they do to the TT.
  19. lol it had actually came to a surprise that Tina was our actual tour guide back to the park resurrected from the dead i guess. But she played it off well and made a few jokes of how shes going to send that video in to be a part of the next scream film and the rest was the basic info you get on the way back to the park
  20. opening weekend i had a stuffy nose maybe thats why lol but that wont explain how i couldnt explain how i didnt smell it this past weekend 0.o
  21. call me crazy but i never once smelled the carnicera smells. guess it just wasnt to strong for me
  22. lol thats funny we were in the same line. not quit sure why it took that many security for one person lmao. Not gonna lie even though it can sometimes ruin the experience for some seeing these incidents is pretty funny. more alcohol....more incidents simple
  23. well i cant really clarify this DTH but i noticed alot of "incidents" occurred yesterday in terms of people acting out and being arrested and escorted out of the park. The First one being in HOTC. as i was standing in line waiting to get in approxiametly 10 guards rushed into the maze and escorted a guy and his crew out. they stopped the maze for a few and after that situation was tooken care of the resumed everything. The second one was when i was exitng Alice Coopers maze somebody was being placed under arrest. Im not sure the reason or cause of these things....most likely alcohol. I doubt a "fire" occurred in any of the mazes..well when i was there at least i left kind of early yesterday.
  24. ^^ no doubt we are expanding and advancing forward rather quickly. but your probably right we have grown possibly bigger than our older sibling.
  25. Yea the Scream TT was such a major let down. I might sound a bit foolish but all Murdy needed was the rights from Scream 4 he didnt need the first 3 films. Most of the same characters reside in that film anyways. All he really needed was ghostface as a villian and the rest could of been purely based on originality while staying true to the scream films. Now the only thing to represent scream is the bunch of ghostface on the backlot otherwise you wouldn't even know it was a scream TT. sighs* Another thing, not one character from that Scream film was on the TT being terrorized as a victim or whatever it might of been.[spoiler ALERT] And now that i think of it not only did the ending video make no sense but it wasnt right for them to kill a specific trams guide. Because than when you switch back to the regular guide for the rest of the trip its a big WTF. i got lucky enough to get the same person killed in the video as a tram guides person on the way back once. im not sure if i made any sense to you all or utterly confused you guys lol but im not sure how to really explain that.
