  1. I speculate that I am going to HHN this year.
  2. Just take it easy and don't try to do everything in a rush.
  3. I can only reply based on watching video walk throughs, but when Hollywood hits on details it's better than Orlando. But in terms of over-all quality Orlando wins every time in recent memory. It seems like the locations for houses in Hollywood just aren't as conductive for building a maze/house compared to Orlando's sound stages or tents.
  4. It's funny to go back and read 29 being disappointing compared to the 30 we got.. Oh boy!
  5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underwater_(film) The newish movie Underwater is basically a recreation of Depths of Fear. If there was a movie tie-in with this it would have been great! Oh well!
  6. Monday the standby line for Bride went along the edge of the Plaza of the Stars straight into the sound stage. Zero stopping or waiting to get in. For Fairy it went from the Tribute Store, around the corner and straight in to the stage. 10 minute wait for express pass holders to filter in. As far as I can tell express is only for premiere pass holders. The HHN hype is dead for the general park guests. I saw people come to the line and turn around the second they heard it wasn't a house. I saw one group of people walk all the way to the end of the line, look in the house, and turn around to leave. Didn't even want to try it. Even the Tribute Store was dead and empty most of the day. The Skeleton Bar had ZERO people in it. Edit: This was 2-5pm Monday on a holiday weekend. The lighting and cast improvements for the houses are outstanding and with the pulsing these are the best HHN houses I've never experienced. I'm really afraid this is going to put the brakes on further HHN events, but I am wildly speculating here.
  7. Went again Sunday and Monday this week. 5 minute wait for Bride, 10 minute wait for Fairy. The lighting in both Bride and Fairy is much improved and the actors are getting better.
  8. Universal has repeated more than just one house before. They literally did the same house twice in a row nearly from the start. https://halloweenhorrornights.fandom.com/wiki/The_People_Under_the_Stairs The houses this year rule and I can't wait to see them again next year with some minor mixups and improvements.
  9. I had one of the best HHN experiences of my HHN career last night. If you guys decided to sit this one out you are missing a great time. We had practically a private tour though Bride and Toothfairy last night.
  10. Their beer fest (whatever they call it) was still going on.
  11. Disclaimer: I am going to write this review as spoiler-free as I think is possible to properly explain the house. If you don't want to read anything before entering for yourself maybe skip this one for now. I went through this house back-to-back twice before writing this and waited a week to record my thoughts here. This is a classic, return to form, HHN house. Lots of tight, winding spaces with pinball scares. Plenty of fake outs and misdirection. When compared to the lineup of HHN 29 this could be in the top five of most people's list. The Victorian house theme and monsters design fit well with what the HHN team can create and do well. I think this is a stark contrast to the monster design of Depths of Fear of which I found more comical than scary. This house had an excellent smell factor that every great HHN house has too! The Covid precautions took little away from the scares, in my opinion, and I consider this a must-do house if you have the chance. 1 - bad 5 - average for a HHN house 10 - best of the best Overall score: 8 I noticed some scares that were either removed due to Covid concerns or not staffed when I was visiting. This house suffers greatly from not having 'SIF' scene transitions. One scene in general obviously was missing a divider and I think would make a great addition for a do-over next year. Use of theme potential: 10 I couldn't think of any ideas to expand on the lore or theme when thought about later. Completely nailed it. Visuals / Audio / Smell: 8 In my opinion this house was still a little too brightly lit, but a lot of opening week houses suffer from this too. Should this house return next year: YES Should there be a sequel to this house in the future: YES
  12. Just some photos from today! Lots of video and my experience to post later. I am beat! https://imgur.com/a/nI22IQj
  13. What a great day! I took lots of footage to upload to YouTube later.
  14. Out of the two houses this is the one I anticipate the most.
  15. I do but I am going again this week with my DSLR not just my iPhone. I'll post them here!
  16. Little iPhone video of the Frakenmold machine for those who haven't seen it yet.
  17. ALL SHALL BE REVEALED! Or if you want spoilers: A Frankenstein's Monster wax figure machine and some new merch.
  18. Cool new stuff at the Tribute Store this weekend. I'm going Wed I'll take some pictures to post here.
  19. I got that impression. That would have been so good. Can't wait, only 400 days to go!
  20. Only 413 days to go! Let the speculation begin!!
  21. Hey did we talk about the 3 months free Florida resident passes yet? I am dying to get them before HHN so I can start looking for clues!
