  1. Killer Klowns appears to use a mix of music from the film's actual soundtrack, and the re-recorded orchestral soundtrack Massari did recently (which is similar to the scare zone last year)
  2. Another big thing is kind of the death of the classic online forum. There are so many new forms of communication online, through social media platforms and new chat and group programs like discord and such that a forum like this one just isn't the main source of information any more.
  3. So it's Fall of 2019 and time to continue my trend of creating an ENTIRE event every year, based in a fictional theme park (that I built in RCT3) The previous years can be seen here and here https://www.horrornightnightmares.com/forums/topic/5070-fright-forest-an-original-event-concept/ This year's is fairly ambitious in size and scope, both for the original content and for the IPs that I put in as wishful thinking. The overall theme of the event is Anthology Horror inspired by some of the IPs that I chose, as well as the Icon character I created. Without further ado, here is Fright Forest XII: Tales to Terrify! Icon: Benjamin Naughton/Dr. Nightmare Benjamin Naughton was a renowned scientist who was working on some cutting edge experiments in teleportation. In 2014, he opened a portal to another dimension, one that should not have been disturbed. He was sucked in, the portal closing behind him, and for five years, Naughton was presumed dead. In 2019 a strange new show begins airing across the country, with a strange character calling himself Dr. Nightmare, promising to show horrors beyond belief and nightmares from the Beyond in what appears to be a send up of old horror hosts. The reality is far more sinister, as the creatures from the other dimension have been summoned, and they will hunt all who watch. Don’t adjust your TV set. Dr. Nightmare is in control. HOUSES (ORIGINAL CONCEPTS) Dr. Nightmare Presents: Maze of Madness Step into the world of Dr. Nightmare’s Tales to Terrify! and experience the horror up close and in person as you venture into a maze of nightmares and horrific dreamscapes. Soon it will be your turn to venture through the portal to the Other Realm, and there may be no return journey. (All new original concept, Icon house) All Hallow’s Eve: Chapter 3 It’s been thirty years since the events of All Hallow’s Eve: Chapter 2. The most haunted house on the street has been dormant for that time, but it’s awake again, and calling to you. Encounter classic Halloween horrors as the spirit of Halloween returns to stake his claim. Beware, he has the scariest surprises in store for this final chapter of Fright Forest’s most popular creation. (Returning concept, third and final year) Dark Skies: Terror from Above Aliens are invading, and the world is in chaos! Can you survive their brutal attack? Can you make it off their terrible flying saucer as you are beamed aboard? Spine tingling sci fi horror awaits as you face a menace from beyond the stars! (all new original concept) Deaducation: Fangs for the Memories The halls of Springsdale High School are running red with blood just in time for graduation as a war between a gang of vampires and a group of werewolves breaks out, fighting for control of the school. Can you escape the carnage? Will you join their ranks? Or even worse, will you become lunch meat? (All new original concept) Tiki Terror: Luau of Fear The popular fright zone becomes an all new maze where you step into an abandoned tiki bar that has been reclaimed by the very tiki spirits some foolish humans stole the names and images for and they are not amused. This is no day at the beach, and the only drinks served will be the blood of those who anger the tiki gods. (Fright Zone from previous year adapted to House) HOUSES (IP based Mazes) The Twilight Zone You’ve entered a dimension of sight, sound, and mind, of thoughts and ideas, you’ve just crossed over to the Twilight Zone. Mind the signpost ahead, or you may never find your way back to reality. Enter the world of the famous television show and encounter some of it’s most sinister creations. Scary Stories to tell in the Dark Enter the pages of a cursed book written by the infamous Sarah Bellows and face the horrors only she could imagine such as The Pale Lady, The Jangly Man, and Harold.

See the world famous Worm, the strange Bearded Lady, Rosie the Pinhead, the Human Flame, and everyone’s favorite Sockhead! Just don’t stick around too long or you may join the show! FRIGHT ZONES (Streetmos-FEAR) Torment: Unleashed The Collector has returned to host his horrifying game show, and with him come some of the horrors from Fright Forest’s past. He has competition however in the newest host of Torment, Nightshade the Clown! The two wage a battle of wits and horrors on the unsuspecting guests. See two unique shows inspired by the popular stage show that has now taken to the streets. (Former yearly show (and one time house) adapted for streets) Slasher: Drive In Double Feature The infamous masked killer that haunted the local cinema has moved to the old abandoned drive-in.

(Sequel to old fright zone) Seeds of Fright Enter the largest pumpkin patch in Springsdale, and discover the horrors that await as the pumpkins come alive and take their revenge for years of being smashed and turned into jack-o-lanterns. You look ripe for carving, so best watch your step. (All new orignal zone) Slumber City Enter neon and blood soaked streets, filled with denizens of your worst nightmares.

(All New for 2019, replaces Torment) there you have it. The event for 2019. Some really fun concepts that I am very proud of. If only I had the money to make it real! Let me know what you think!
  4. I am a huge AoV fan and have been since House of Fear, so my review may mean very little, but I love this show. It's got the same style and setup as House of Fear mixed with the theatricality they showed off last year in Cyberpunk. Their level of energy, enthusiasm and love for what they do just pours out onto the stage, and I am always pleased when I leave the stadium. I wish they were back in the streets only because of how engaging it was to have them there, but they do a great job in Fear Factor Live, and anyone grumbling about them being there and not Bill and Ted need to let the past go.
  5. This show is a very fun way to liven up that section of the park for the event. It's got a great soundtrack, and the segements are fun representations of the content they are there to promote. The only one I didn't care for much was Stranger Things, but the rest was a blast, and I love the use of the Swan Lake theme that was used for the original Universal Dracula in the finale. Top notch choice.
  6. Universal could always use the general concept behind SCP and create their own containment style place, without having to use people ides from the site. It'd be like a horror Warehouse 13.
  7. Yeah, only one piece of music from that video makes it into the show, and the choreography for that song is entirely different. The Horror Nights show is much more linear and has a plot. It's also 100% fucking awesome.
  8. Stranger Things also has "Agents" from the Season One soundtrack feature towards the end.
  9. This house is BEAUTIFUL, and it perfectly matches the film. I enjoyed who wide open they made the Parade building feel, as it looks and feels like a soundstage house. Sam is literally everywhere, it has Rhonda (who was mysteriously absent from the scarezone last year despite being the best character in the film), and the schoolbus scenes are just incredible. It was excellent on opening night and I expect it will only get better.
  10. Top Notch "fun" house. The film ideas are all very interesting and I could see either of them becoming fleshed out into their own full blown house concept (especially the Swamp Yeti and the Midnight Snack 2 sections) Lots of funs, and the scareactors seem to be having a blast with what they know is a very silly concept overall. Also it smells like popcorn when you go in. How cool is that?
  11. It was chaos last night. When I went through Trick R Treat, I waited maybe 25 minutes despite a 55 posted wait, but then I got stuck in the last room of the house for five minutes because they were having to merge the exit lines of TrT and Seeds and it was awful.
  12. It technically is for all nights. They verify you have a fequent fear pass of some sort, asking to see it and a photo ID to confirm. Then, when filling up the cup it claims you have unlimited refills through November 5th at 2am. Now I assume they don't expect people to use it on Non HHN days, but it doesn't seem to have a restriction for what HHN nights you can and can't use it.
  13. So for the last 11 years I've come up with a creative event that is inspired by Halloween Horror Nights (and an event I actually worked in New England known as Spooky World) and each year, I go through the trouble of mapping out houses, scare zones, and how it all fits into a park I built in Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. When I can get the file working, I even set up tents to be the houses and build queue lines. I'm a bit mad. Anyway. I used to post about it on HHNVault back in the day, and posted the event from two years ago here: But I'm back again with an all new (well mostly) event for 2018. Bigger than ever after last year's 10th anniversary year, this event is probably the most ambitious in terms of scope and the IPs I've pretended to nab. Without futher ado, I present Fright Forest XI: Dark Fortunes. To set the stage: Fright Forest is an annual Halloween at fictional theme park resort Adventure Gardens. The event is held in Mystic Mountains park, an adventure themed thrill park. It runs from September through October on select nights and is an extra ticket event featuring Haunted Houses, themed street atmosphere, and live shows. In 2018, the eleventh year of fear is taking over at Adventure Gardens resort. Madame Zira has come to tell your fortune, but you may not like what she has to say as she unveils 9 houses of horror, 6 zones of fear, a frightening new ride experience, and 2 live shows that will thrill and chill. The Event Backstory: In 1928, the Marneville Carnival of Curiosities was the height of entertainment for the locals of Marneville, Maine. One of the main attractions was Madame Zira’s Tent of Wonders. She was a gifted psychic and medium, and she told the fortunes of many a traveling guest. One of these guests was a married couple. In her reading, she revealed the infidelity of the man to his wife, and in return, he came back later that evening with several friends, and set fire to her tent and the rest of the carnival. The flames raged all evening, taking the lives of most of the staff of the carnival’s staff, including Madame Zira. The fire’s cause was never discovered and went down as one of the great unsolved American mysteries. Sometime later, all the men involved in the arson were found dead, hearts having stopped in their chests with no explanation. Foul play was suspected, but no evidence ever found. Throughout the years, people claim to have met her, have had their fortunes told, and had bad things happen, but the legends seemed to be only that...until now. The carnival has returned, the smell of ash and smoke filling the air, and Madame Zira welcomes all who would come to see the truth of the Carnival and to face their own dark fortunes. HAUNTED HOUSES The event features 5 original houses based on ideas from the creative director (me) with a few returning concepts spruced up for 2018. There are also 5 houses based on popular IPs that fit the style of the event. 1. Carnival of Souls: Dark Fortunes Stumble upon the remains of an old carnival tent destroyed by fire and meet the mysterious Madame Zira. She awakens the restless spirits of those who perished in the flames of old, and now you must survive the horrors that await you in the Carnival of Souls (Centerpiece House of the event, ties in with fright zone located near the house entrance) 2. Santa’s Little Helpers Discover the horrific secret behind the merriest season of all when you meet Santa Claus and his devious little minions. He no longer can control their monstrous appetite for blood, so you’d better watch out, you’d better not cry. 3. The Gateway: Complex of Terror Two years ago, a pathway to hell itself was found in a suburban home, and was subsequently destroyed, but these things always find a way back. Now, step into the newest, ritziest high rise apartment complex in the city as the portal opens once more. Stay away from the walls, they are alive. (Sequel to a house from 2016) 4. All Hallow’s Eve: Chapter II After bringing the house down last year, It’s time to enter an all new collection of classic Halloween horrors. Enter the old house at the end of the street and face the true spirit of All Hallow’s Eve. Will you make it out alive, or will you join his devious army of trick or treating monsters? (Sequel to a house from 2017) 5. Welcome to Karfax Karfax Hospital is not your average medical facility. Here the monsters we’ve always feared are being held hostage at the whims of some horrifying nurses who now have set their sights on you. You might just become the newest patient. 6. Creepshow: Double Feature The Creep has returned to a theater near you to host a marathon of mayhem. Step into the classic terrors presented in the Creepshow films from George A. Romero and Stephen King. Trust us, it’s the most fun you’ll ever have...being scared! 7. Gremlins: Mayhem after Midnight You knew the rules. You didn’t listen. Now these maniacal monsters are on the loose yet again, terrorizing the newly opened Clamp World Amusement Park during their inaugural Halloween event. Just don’t get them wet, whatever you do. 8. Until Dawn Something terrible has happened as group of friends spend a night on Blackwood Mountain. Now it’s your turn. Enter the frightening world of the best selling game, and what you do may change the outcome of the story. No two visits will ever be quite the same! 9. Fright Night Jerry Dandridge has moved in next door to Charlie and his mother. Jerry Dandridge is a vampire. Now that Charlie knows his secret, Jerry will stop at nothing to make sure Charlie never tells. Step into the classic 80’s horror film like never before. Welcome to Fright Night! FEAR ZONES The event has six areas where live themed streetmosphere performers roam. Known as Fright Zones they tell their own stories in a less confined space than the houses and allow more interaction with the characters and the guests. Four original ideas, two based on IPs. 1. Return to the Mountains of Madness The Sisters of the Mountains, evil fairies with eyes on destroying the world of men, have returned and begun to invade our world. Will you escape, die screaming, or become one of them? (A sequel to an original house from 2016) 2. Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween Long a staple of Fright Forest, Goosebumps returns to terrorize the streets of Horrorland, inspired by the all new film in theaters this October. You’d better beware, you are in for a scare! 3. Tiki Terrors! The Gods have been angered by blasphemous celebrating from tourists, and they are out for blood. Terrifying Tiki Totems and Horrific Hula Dancers make this one Luau you don’t want to miss. 4. Tumbleweed Cemetery Deep in the western town of Tumbleweed lies a long deserted cemetery, but it’s residents are rising from the grave on Halloween to terrorize the living. Gunslinging Zombies? You better believe it, cowpoke. 5. Five Nights at Freddy’s: Parade of Nightmares The big Turkey Day parade has made its way to the city but one float seems to be causing quite a bit of chaos. The characters of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza are now loose on the streets and not even daylight will save you now. 6. Carnival of Souls: Zira’s Revenge Madame Zira welcomes all into her newly reawoken carnival and dares them to tempt fate, to face their futures. Experience the Zone before you enter the terrifying centerpiece house this year. (Ties into the centerpiece house of the event) SHOWS There are two live shows. The staple show of the event has been a horror themed “gameshow” called Torment that has been in existance since 2009. During the tenth anniversary event, the show was renamed Circus of Torment. It returns this year under that name in a new location. Think of it as the event’s Bill and Ted mixed with the Carnage shows of Jack the Clown. The second show features the comedy electrofunk band TWRP in a spoof of old school Halloween television specials. (This is not realistic as TWRP is a touring band, but hey, my imagination can do what it likes) 1. Circus of Torment (Adventurer’s Outpost Stage) After stealing the show (literally), Nightshade The Clown returns to host the most demented game show, featuring murder, mayhem, and some killer tunes. The Fright Forest classic show has a new look and new location! 2. The TWRP Halloween Special Live! (Castle Stage) Blast to the past for a live taping of a cable access Halloween special featuring the world’s premier time traveling, crime fighting electro-funk band. TWRP brings energetic music and hilarious antics hailing from the far away land of Canada! Now in a larger venue for even more earth shattering musical shenanigans. Exclusive Ride Experience: Fright Train In the early years of the event, I imagined there was a classic carnival dark ride they would retheme to various stories through the years. Eventually, it stopped, but then I brought it back for the tenth year last year. Now I decided to do my spin on a classic Halloween event staple: a Hayride. Hop aboard a haunted locomotive to take a journey into the very depths of Fright Forest and encounter monsters from the event’s past, present, and future. This modern take on a haunted hayride will thrill fans of horror of all ages. Who knows who you’ll meet on the Fright Train. --- Whoo that was long winded, but here we are. All the original concepts are mine. IPs belong to their original copyright holders. Hope you enjoyed. What do you think? Would you attend?
  14. They stopped doing Hello Kitty at a certain point last year, reserving it for overflow only, which was rarely needed. I don't think they would keep Stranger Things out of early release though, as potentially beneficial as that would be for the people at the front gate.
