HHN 26: Ghost Town : The Curse of Lightning Gulch

Recommended Posts

" When lightning strikes, the curse of Lightning Gulch comes to life and this ghostly town appears. These doomed souls—who once went searching for gold—found death and destruction. And now they seek others to join them. As thunder cracks, flashes of lightning will lead your way through this treacherous wild west nightmare. Good luck!"

Hearing that this was the rumored requel house I had low expectations for it. But after seeing that trailer, I'm pumped!

So is this just the original Ghost Town house or a new house? Either way, I'm pumped for this.

 

Glad to see originals getting trailers.

It's a new house, in the original setting, Lightning Gulch.

Completely amped for this. The original is my favorite. I watched part of the video and stopped when I realized they were showing snippets of the house. AMPED!

This is such a great idea of a house to bring back! It's been a good amount of time, and lots of people who have recently gotten into the event's history and lore (cough cough me) get to experience something legendary with new technologies and scares! Since every original house has such a different flavor so to speak, it's hard to pick a favorite, but this one is definitely up there for me.

i'm excited to see how this works! the wild west theme looks pretty fun, and it'll be interesting to see how a "requel" house'll work :^0

Excited to experience an original property that goes way back in Orlando's history! For any of you that experienced the original maze, what aspects of the maze are you looking forward to seeing get re-done? 

 

My only concern is the look of the scareactors. Unless there are some really cool masks or prosthetics, I'm worried the actors will just have airbrushed faces that may look a little too cheesy.

The "calm, uneasy" feeling of approaching the buildings at first. If I recall it felt welcoming, almost "warm", but like an approaching storm you knew you were about to be in trouble.

Notice that the glowing skeleton in the picture is holding 2 pistols. I wonder if they actually took the guns out of the house. I know that I'll be on the lookout when I go through to see if they skimped or not. Ghost Town skeletons are required to have pistols in my book.

I'm personally not a fan of western themed attractions

Very excited for this one! Such a fun and original concept, glad to see this house is coming back. If this turns out to be a success, then we could expect to see other past originals come back for requels as well, which I personally wouldn't mind (unless it was recently done).

2 things for me.

1. The cool glow in the dark cowboy sitting at the table drinking his whisky. He looked really cool! Please bring him back!

2. The creepy girls that were against the wall doing their weird possessed dance. I've never seen anything like that and haven't seen anything like it since. It just looked cool.

 

I am so pumped for this house. The original is my favorite house of all time.

Could this be a mixture of Ghost Town/Winter's Night/Legendary Truth: Wyandot Estate? From the glow, they used glow techniques in those mazes right?

YEah! I heard great things and know quite a bit about those mazes and I would just LOVE LOVE to see those effects to the max!

I don't really remember a lot about the maze other than Western theme and the makeup/lighting effects. The ending was really chaotic and cool so hopefully they bring back a similar feeling. The facade at the time was probably one of the best, but it has since been surpassed in terms of impressiveness. So hopefully they do something to update it.

I'm really hoping they have some great strobe/lightning effects here. Very excited for this one.

I remember there being little to no gunplay in the original.  Disappointing to say the least but it was a good house nonetheless.

Like many here I mostly remember the facade; you made your way around a large corral before entering the "town" proper. 

With the emphasis on "lightning guiding your path" are we getting a mix between Ghost Town (2004) and Dead Exposure?
Would be pretty cool to be in pitch blackness when you're on the main drag of town (with only the flashes of lightning lighting your way) and have the slightest of practical lighting (candles) when indoors.

First Impressions, sorry to say, I didn't like it. 

 

People bitched about how "THIS HOUSE NEEDS GUNS" and I disagree entirely especially after going through the house. Gun scare after gun scare after gun scare. EVERYONE had a gun and I just got bored. I GET IT, it's the Wild West, but man I was just tired by Room 3. Right now, that main town scene is going down as one of the biggest missed opportunities in history. 

 

Maybe I had a bad run but I felt like I saw nearly everything. Hopefully I'm wrong.

I get the feeling this is going to be given poor marks for not being all that scary (Although the funniest and most embarassing scare I got on preview night came towards the exit of the house) but I just love this house. The sets are the best I've ever seen, and the effects are super great. I just want this to evolve into a scary house too. I hope it does.
