one thing you might want to think about doing is changing the color for the dates, like you did with sept 26th. It will make the whole thing much easier to read and see the different break in the dates.

OK done. Also if you hear of any slots filled please post here I'll change the time to red

Me +4 for Oct 4th @ 2pm. "Good thing you called today - we can just fit your party in.". Not sure how true that is, but sounds like the 10/4 pm tour is just about full.

EDIT: Anybody know how many tours they are doing a day/session? I booked 5 tickets, but we have a "virgin" going who rightfully doesn't think that paying $60 to see 3 houses with lights on is worth it (and another guy who's not doing it this year). Have a feeling one or both might might change their minds after going through the houses. Only 15 per group...one tour per day (well, for each set of 3 houses) but they have to do at least 3 at a time right? So that all 3 tours do the 3 houses round robin style?

Right, Last year there were 3 groups of 15. Which before that I had only seen 2

I will be there Oct 4 for both morning and afternoon UTH tours.

If anyone is considering splurging on the Arcane tour, let me give yo my quick $.02 from taking it last year.

Although getting to spend an evening with TJ at HHN may sound priceless, there are a few things you need to be aware of:

1) The price does not include event admission, so make sure you have a FFP or ROF pass and go on a night included with that pass.

2) TJ takes a few minutes before and a few after each house to talk about it, but good luck hearing him, because there are no quiet spots around the exits of the houses.

3) The tour lasts almost the entire event (going only through the zones, houses and B&T). At the end of the tour you may have 30-60 minutes to roam on your own before the park closes, but your glow necklace will NOT act as an Express pass, so don't count on doing any house a second time.

4) There is a "rest period" in Lombard's, where you get about 45 minutes for a "round table" discussion with TJ. That's probably the best part of the whole tour. Ask him anything, but what was surprising was how frank his answers were.

5) NO Food is included in the tour. For this price, that really sucks.

For me, personally, no food and no post-tour Express usage was a real deal-breaker. Had they included just those two perks which would have cost Universal nothing, I would have felt like I got my money's worth.

For my dollar, the UTH tours are by far the better choice. No daytime admission required - and they let you stay in the park after the afternoon tour even though you don't have a ticket!

The tour should really impress even the virgins. While the sets don't really look all that great in the daytime, hearing the backstory and how much actually went into the house makes the tour great. The guide makes or breaks the tour; David is by far the best guide I've ever had. Doing the tour AFTER doing the houses at night in my opinion is the way to do it. It's like seeing the magic show and then having the magician show you how the trick is done. You get a new appreciation for it. There are absolutely no scares during the tour.

There are 3 morning and 3 afternoon tours. The morning tours all do the same 3 houses. The afternoon tours all do the same 3 houses (but different ones than the morning).

Note that you do NOT need to buy daytime park admissions to do these tours, and at the end of the afternoon tour, they turn you free in the park till it closes - best deal.

Quick question, I want to go next Saturday but I want to go for both tours. Would I need to buy two tickets for the morning and afternoon tours, or if i buy one does it count as both if i go in the morning?

The are ticketed separately but you get a discount if you buy both.

So which houses are on which tour? I believe originally Halloween was on the morning tour with From Dusk til Dawn and AVP was the afternoon with Walking Dead? Anyone who's been on a tour able to help?

I enjoyed the morning tour (27th 10:30) so much, I went to see the 2:00pm show along with 2 others on September 28th as well.

If you book a spot on both tours in one day, is it discounted or still $60 each tour?

It's 100.00 for both

Question for those who have done both the morning and afternoon tours, which is the better bang for your buck?

Latter since you get to stay in Universal after, can do Harry Potter, then get quarantined.

My wife and I went Oct 3rd at 2pm. Anyone else there? Was a great tour minus the fact the start of the parade held us up and we were kinda rushed through AVP... But we got our shot for the Xmas card! LOL, but seriously.
