Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood 2018 Speculation

So are they lying when they said they had record high numbers this year? I genuinely feel like there was hardly anyone there for the event.

I feel like there's some truth to it, but not in the way we think, and they're doing a "positive spin" routine. Last year was way more packed and had way better reviews from GP (Yelp or Facebook) and fans, and they're saying this year had "record" crowds. I don't know, sounds fishy to me. They're trying to reason that "one extra maze" spread people out more, but by that much to the point it's dead empty at certain points in certain areas of the park? Maybe the 5 PM early entry helped too and people left early, I don't know. I just think it's all suspect and don't know what to believe anymore.

I will correct myself on one point, though.  At the START of this season, HHN was very crowded.  Look at the 2017 thread - people were commenting how packed the first weekend was vs last year.  I did not have my first visit until week #3.  By then the reviews got out and the event was slammed on social media.  So my visits had quite light crowds.  The first night I didn't get there until almost 8PM.  Should have been slammed, but crowds were just not there.

 

I would believe that the first weekend had record numbers compared to last year first weekend.

 

 

I went to opening day this year (2017) and last year (2016) and last year was much more crowded.  I remember explicitly because I had GA tickets and came to early entry and still waited in line for one maze up to 3 hours.  Even though this year I did the RIP tour, I saw the wait times never reach anywhere near 3 hours for any maze.

 

Also, with only one extra maze added this year, and 8 other attractions (including Terror Tram and TWD maze), it would only reduce each maze by about 1/9 or a little more.  So instead of say an average of 60 minutes per maze, you'd have about 53 minutes per maze.  However, the lines felt more reduced compared to last year.

If this year was less crowded from the start, then bad reviews would only hurt it further, but what would set the tone for a crappy turnout from the start?  I mean, I heard Knotts had great attendance all season long.  So what would make HHN-H have such a bad attendance from the start?

 

Crappy 2016 - Nah.  2016 was a good year for Hollywood.  Gotta be something else.

 

Poor marketing - I can't say I recall hearing any promo that touted one more house.  I heard the "More mazes than ever before", but honestly, they've been playing that card in one form or another so many times when it was not actually true, I probably didn't pay attention.  Like when they call a house "all new" even though they are reusing the same scenes and scares we've seen multiple times.  Perhaps their B.S. marketing is finally catching up with them?

 

Prevalence of frankly better boutique haunts - the market is getting crowded with options these days.  Good for us.  Often these boutique haunts (The Willows, Delusion, Lore) are pretty pricey making people choose their poison.  And other local haunts compete for the dollars (Dark Harbor, Fright Fest, Knotts, Sinister Pointe, Reign of Terror, Haunted Hayride).  No idea on what kind of  turnout these all had.  But with so much to choose from, HHN needs to keep momentum to stay ahead.  I think HHN stumbled bigtime this year.  Knotts >> HHN this year.

 

GP not interested in the IP - This might have been a real component.  We got exactly ONE brand new IP house in The Shining.  Every other house had IP that had been presented in one way or another before: Evil Dead, Saw, Purge, Insidious, Walking Dead, AHS, Freddy, Jason, Leatherface, Chucky.  Arguably Happy Death Day and Sinister were new IP, but buried in the Blumhouse umbrella.  Then again, 2016 only brought 2 new IP for the event: Exorcist and AHS.  Perhaps even IP gets old for the GP.

It's the IPs and the marketing for the first weekend, with the reviews hitting it major on the second weekend and after, plus with Knotts being open from that point and on, and getting rave reviews (which lead to them selling out for the first time in yeeeeeears).

 

IPs: Yeah, Shining is huge, but it's not Exorcist huge. Insidious is popular, but the new movie isn't out, so there's no buzz around the franchise at the moment, plus it's been done twice. AVED, even big fans of the franchise have no idea this show exists, sadly. Saw, literally nobody gives a shit about it, and that's why the new movie flopped also -- I was surprised it even had a line, but I'm guessing that's mainly because new fans didn't see it back in 09/10. AHS had to deal with only being Roanoke, a very divisive season.

 

Marketing: I tried pointing it out before, but Titans of Terror and Blumhouse are hard to market, even if there's popular brands within them. Their ideas are too complex for a simple execution to reach to a mass audience. Also, on the forefront of the website, they advertise front and center the Jabbawockeez and The Walking Dead. Next to that is the Key Demon from Insidious 4 who nobody knows yet, Ash with his big stupid grin-yell face that doesn't look scary. The only thing striking to the eye is the twins in The Shining...

 

Reviews:.. and they're not even scareactors in the maze! Alot of people were looking forward to being scared by them, Vanessa Hudgens did a interview before going into the park saying that's what she was more excited about. And all they are is a ghost pepper effect! On the same coin, we have Chucky in a lot of marketing, but he's on the poorly received Tram, and was used sparingly on it. They're not even giving the FANS what we perceived the event to be! Disregarding the black hallways that the GP would think nothing of, none of the mazes were strong this year. Even the Shining isn't as good as '16 weakest maze. Knotts definitely is a competitor and stole a lot of business. They're cheaper, had a lot of new and fresh ideas, plus rides -- and everyone is saying it's good.

 

Past Years: Yeah, people love HHN, BUT the other half of people have been getting sick of the long lines. Year after year, you see the same exact story on Yelp: "I came at 8, did the Tram, did 3 rides, and one maze -- everything was 3 hours long, I'm never coming back." Last year may have been the best ever, but it was also beyond crowded and I can imagine how many people didn't show up for early entry and hated every second of it. Their perception is it's overcrowded, overpriced (because they probably went on a peak day) and overrated in quality. They may have done the event "wrong," but Uni needs to make the event more accessible -- which it luckily was this year BECAUSE of light crowds.

Next year they need to up the budget if they wanna have 8 mazes, the black walls everywhere was sad. They also need more scarezones and rides open to the public to spread everyone out more.

I went to Knotts Scary Farm on opening weekend this year as well as HHN opening weekend.  It was my first time at KSF and I expected the mazes to be less impressive than HHN but to be honest it was really awesome.  They were really unique, such as one maze where a flash light is your only light, or another maze where you use a lazer gun.  Also, some of the effects were inventive, such as walking between soft, pulsing walls at one point in a maze.  I wish HHN had a few more "gimmicks" that broke up the monotony of some mazes. 

 

Oh, and possibly most importantly, the Elvira show beats Jabbawockeez by a mile.  Heck, even the campy, raunchy comedy show was better.  While Jabbawockeez seem talented for what they do, I was just not as entertained as I was for the KSF shows.  Lastly, the attendance at KSF was really uneven.  I saw one maze tucked away in the back of the park, almost hidden, that had no line while another maze near the entrance was huge.  I had an express pass for KSF and noticed that there was sometimes a little wait for some really busy lines, but usually no more than 15 minutes.

I don't know what it would mean if somehow Hollywood got Aiello, but as long as Orlando maintains and continues what they have been doing then I guess they can take a little change in creativity management. Just I know plenty of Orlando fans are ready to bail purely based off of B&T leaving so Orlando for sure needs a strong 28 if B&T truly aren't returning. However whatever the reason...Murdy, budget, last minute license problems...whatever happened this year was truly unacceptable. I bought three FOTL tickets way in advance and after attending one night I regretted it and only returned the second night and didn't even bother returning for my third and wasted the ticket. 

 

Scarezones and atmosphere need to actually exist for one thing next year, I don't even care the theme....heck throw me TWD or Purge themeing and scarezones if they think it can be complete and not just the tacky few set-pieces that were set. Orlando 27 recycled Purge scarezone and was successful due to it being complete and fully fleshed out, tired themeing or not it at least was done correct. House count doesn't matter if most of them are black walls, will def take a house count cut if the quality goes up. 

 

I agree with the other member that I am not sold as everyone with It and Stranger Things. While I appreciate/like those franchises and their current popularity, I don't think it is their time for HHN. Stranger Things is kinda similar to TWD to me, in the sense that it is the characters and their stories/interactions that sell the show not the creatures/horror/scare factor. Then as far as AHS goes...I love the show and love what Orlando has done....and heck I am even one of the oddballs that liked Roanoke, but HW's Roanoke was not good either....Asylum and Coven to do properly will require some serious dedication and I am not up to speed with Cult yet so can't say but what I have seen/heard it belongs in another collaboration/combo house. Def think AHS will return but whatever they decide to do with the remaining seasons they better BRING IT! 

 

As for anything else...see people tossing around The Thing...love it. Love even more a stand alone Alien or Predator house. However after the let down and box office disappointment of Alien Covenant it needs some time off however Predator is def open to the table especially if it can capitalize off its upcoming release. Conjuring? Not sure why people are debating it coming after it was supposed to come to Orlando this past year and had to rapidly turn it into the Hive. Think like Scream leave it alone it is a troubled property for licensing.

 

So after being a negative Nancy what the hell do I even want? Well...def want another stab at the video game horror genre like Evil Within, Resident Evil, Dead Space or Alice Madness Returns (or have Hollywood have their own Asylum in Wonderland original). Aside from that I think Hollywood going with some originals could be beneficial.

I am depending on the announcements roll out before I buy a plane ticket and Front the line ticket for HHN Hollywood. 
 I was sold on titans of terror and happy death day last year. 
 I had a better time at LA Haunted Hayride. 
 
I enjoy both Knotts and HHN 2017. 
 I just enjoyed Haunted hayride more. 
I know that they are trying harder than hhn. 
 I feel like hhn rest on the bodies of work in horror field. 
 If there is more than 3 scare zones, or houses that I really want to see.  I might go if the price is right.

(Posted this over at Ushforums so decided to post it over here)

 

Speaking of which I did redo my Speculation List of what I think could be coming next year. If it is Murdy's last year this is what I believe.

AHS Asylum: One of the most popular Seasons and was said that it was Murdy's Favorite Season. It's perfect for HHN and everyone wants it. I think it will be done because I imagine they would want to do it because of it being a Fan Favorite.

Stranger Things: There was a Leak on the Orlando Forums side that ST will be coming next year. Murdy just checked it out recently and it seems he liked it. It's too popular to not be at the event. It would work really well and I see it coming.

The Thing: A film that is brought up a lot that should come to HHN. It's a great film with incredible creatures so I could see ST and Thing being Creature Mazes for HHN2018. Plus Murdy wants to do it. So I could see it happening.

The Conjuring: The Lawsuit recently ended so I see the doors being opened back up and that this will happen. With the Original 2 Films with maybe a Scene or Two from the Nun to promote it. And for it to be in Waterworld.

Halloween: Solo Maze for Michael Myers again I see happening. Michael Myers is a huge character and I see him getting a Solo Maze for the New Film. I don't see a Blumhouse 2.0 anymore happening. I just think they will want to do a Solo Halloween Maze.

Trick 'r Treat: With how Popular Orlando's Scare Zone was I imagine they would want to finally tackle this property. I could both Hollywood and Orlando doing this property possibly. 

Universal Monsters: I pointed it out but it is something Murdy really wants to do so I could see it happening and it being the huge selling point of HHN2018 like Titans was for 2016 and 2017. 

If they really want to outdo 2016 this is what I see happening. A Mix of Classic and Old with a Lot of Fan Favorites. Along with it being Murdy's last year possibly and that the Budget might be huge again possibly.

Probably less speculation and more "what I want to see in 2018" but this is what I'm thinking.

 

Bring back the Scare Zones, for sure. Particularly in the Upper lot. I'd like to see the main one when you first come in, the tunnel and metro set zones, and bring back the one on French Street (I can't remember if that's the real name for it or not, but I think most of you know what I'm talking about). And maybe even a small scare zone or some wandering creatures on the Lower lot (around the escalators / mummy), though I can see where a full zone would be a total crowd flow nightmare on busy nights.

As for theming, I'd like to see Hollywood's take on Trick 'r Treat, maybe some rogue dinosaurs or experiments gone wrong in the lower lot, some original concepts (clowns?), I think It would be a cool fit for something in the Metro set, and personally I'd like to see a Purge zone return.

 

TWD: It'd be nice to see it possibly expand a bit down towards the Globe Theatre in a scare zone like fashion as you head into the Attraction queue itself.

 

Conjuring: Like others have said, probably in the Waterworld queue.

 

Stranger Things: I think ST is way too popular for it to not make it's way into the park this season. I could see them utilizing the area where Blumhouse was last year for this as it would give them places to come up with some pretty sweet concepts for both the woods and the upside down.

 

Twin Peaks: I'm not sure exactly how popular it really is, but I would love to see what they could do with this show. Most likely on the Lower Lot somewhere.

 

Evil Dead: Not sure the success of Ash last year (I liked it, but I don't get the feeling it was all that popular in general), but I think Ash is to niche of an audience to have a standalone maze. I think if they went for more classic Evil Dead, it'd be more popular and it could be really cool if done properly.

 

Simpsons: Since the ride itself is open during HHN, I'd like to see Treehouse of Horror incorporated somehow, maybe in an outdoor "queue" zone.

 

AHS: No doubt this'll probably be back again in 2018, either as a season standalone or a combined maze. I'd really love to see Asylum done as a standalone, but with the 5150 debacle at Knotts a few seasons back, who knows if they'll actually push for that. I can't see Coven or Cult being all that interesting as standalone mazes though. I preferred 2016's maze layout to this year's Roanoke, so I'd be fine with an Asylum/Cult/Coven combo too.

 

Halloween: Like others have said, I agree that we'll probably see a standalone Halloween maze this year, hopefully on the Metro/Lower Lot area where they can give it the space and facade it deserves.

 

Original Concept: The thing Knott's has on USH is their original concept mazes. I think OC mazes are popular themselves because people don't go into them with the expectation that they're going to feel like they're stepping right into the movie. I feel like IP mazes generally flop harder if they're not done right, no matter how popular their IP is.  

 

Terror Tram: Classic Universal Monsters. As Disney's proven lately, the Nostalgia factor is HUGE. And I could see a Universal Monsters maze being quite a hit. Bring in Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein, Psycho, etc.

 

Live show- I think we're done with Jabbawockeez. I've heard rumors of their contract being up anyway, but either way, I don't see them returning next year. I would love to see Bill & Ted's reworked and brought back to Hollywood, especially now that it's finished it's run in Orlando. 

 

Overall for 2018, I hope we see more of the old HHN. Less black hallways, less obvious scares, more theming and more monsters. With a lot of the construction that impeded the overall scarezones in 2017 finishing up (hopefully) before the 2018 season, hopefully we'll see more impressive scarezones this year.

So, this was only my 2nd year going (2016 being my first) so I don't have a lot to compare it to. Though I also did Fright Fest both years. As an avid horror fan who grew up in Lancaster but moved to WA state as a teen in the 80's I never had the opportunity to go to HHN until adulthood, and thus recently. I'll chime in only because you all are avid, hardcore and knowledgeable fans and you don't have any newb representation. LOL

 

1. I believe Murdy tweeted during all the reveals something about writing treatments for the next year already. I think he'll be involved somehow.

2. I had a blast both years and really can't complain about the bad vs. good because I think there were equally ones I liked and disliked both years. I even missed 2 mazes last year. But STILL it was fun because I wanted it to be. I've never laughed so hard as when I go to these events. Case in point, Never saw an ED movie or show in my life until after I went to HHN (then I binge watched the TV show). But during this maze, which I really didn't expect to be scared by, my family and friends decided that since I'm the most easily scared they'd somehow put me in front of them (which I always says NO WAY to) and pulled back to where I was completely ALONE in the maze. At one point I fell to the ground with my arms over my head screaming, then laughing so hard when I realized what was going on after running forward and attaching myself to the couple ahead. Having watched the show now, I get it. And we chose to have fun.

3. In fairness, I have a physical disability so we got to go to all the mazes ahead of folks, or at a scheduled time. That helped. (With prolonged standing and heat my legs and arms swell and blister as my veins leak plasma and water into my limbs...so it sucks if I'm not constantly moving/walking).

4. We went on Halloween night. By midnight it was really packed. Again, I don't know what to compare it to but it was annoying as hell. LOL

5. Things that really scare me I'd somehow like to see as mazes:

JAWS...how would you make that a maze? Swimming in a dark pool? LOL...sharks frighten me.

Alien (huge huge fear of mine, love the movies...it's been done in Orlando, yes? I watched a video of it. That alien queen at the end though!)

Hellraiser (also been done I think, yes? But nothing scares me like a cenobite!)

HUGE resident evil fan. Have they done one based on the movies as opposed to the games? I do love the games. Either way, I'd love to see that. 

Silent Hill-super sad I have never gone until now. I know this was at the same location that TWD is now, yes? Or where the van helsing attraction used to be. Same place I think.

Hannibal-Seriously. Like, if they can do SAW where you're just walking through looking at traps then you can do a maze based on the kill scenes from that amazing show.

Definitely on board for a Ramiro zombie maze, or scare zone.

Poltergeist

The Descent-That whole movie revolves around having zero ability to see and it scared the shit out of me.

Cabin in the woods. Conceptually there's so much material you can use.

28 days series for Terror Tram or as a scare zone. Super fast zombies chasing you. I want to be assaulted, you know? LOL

The Howling (That for me is the scariest werewolf movie---or was when I was a kid). 

 

I guess I like a lot of the things that have already been done, and so I'm out of luck. But man, that would be my dream.

 

Heck, they should do a survival horror game theme one year. All properties from games. I agree on the Evil Within and Outlast. OMG...OUTLAST as a maze....i'd probably poop my pants.

 

We have some great haunted farms/mazes done by farms and shriners over here in Western WA. I was supremely impressed by this last year and there was one that featured all children scare actors. Children doing bad things scares me...a lot. It was one of the most disturbing things I'd ever seen, and these kids were AMAZING little actors.

 

Anyway, that's my newb perspective lol.

My guesses/hopes for 2018 are:

 

-IT (chapter 1 has PLENTY of material so that they won't have to wait for the sequel....then chapter 2 will be there for 2019, release date is speculated at September 6 so perfect timing for the event too)

-Stranger Things (I think with this second season there is enough material to work with)

-The Conjuring (god I just want this maze so freaking badly...I'm guessing they'll do 1 and 2 if they get the chance to do it at all, in light of the constant lawsuits James Wan deals with regarding the franchise)

-AHS: Cult (last year was great and there's a ton of stuff Murdy could do for this season)

-Blumhouse's Halloween (makes sense as to why Michael was left out of the Titan's of Terror maze and TT in 2017, since he was also there 2 years prior...Murdy knew people would get mad about Halloween being there 3 years in a row)

-New Original

-Dark horse property (since we have one every year)

 

Terror Tram: honestly don't know, but I would love something original here that isn't clowns...

 

Scare zones: just more SZ please. I miss the lower lot scare zone so much, even if it's just a couple of stilt walkers. Also, bring Hell-oween back as the entrance SZ. I am still obsessed with the costumes and those scare actors were incredible every.single.night. I went about 7 times this past year and I saw the exact same amount of energy and passion from every single one of them. If any of you are reading this, kudos, you were all freaking awesome!

Haven't posted in a while, so I thought I would predict this year's lineup. 

 

The Conjuring:

This is pretty much a no-brainer at this point, I'm just tired of this franchise not coming to HHN. The arrival of The Conjuring in Horror Nights is long overdue and I wanna see that damn nun in person! 

 

Stranger Things:

It would be such a missed opportunity to not have this TV series featured at the event! I love this show and it has enough material to work with. As much as I loathe the Black Walls of Doom, I'll gladly give the transitions a pass, if utilized correctly (similar to Exorcist and Insidious). 

 

American Horror Story:

If Roanoke can get a solo maze, I think Asylum or Cult can get the same treatment. I've never seen either season but I've heard those are the best ones, I've seen Coven but other than the characters there isn't really much I want to see in a house. 

 

Trick R Treat: 

Just like Conjuring, this property is a no-brainer. I know Murdy wants to wait for the sequel so it won't be irrelevant anymore, but he did This Is The End sooooo... The scare zone in Orlando seemed to be really successful so if it's coming it'll definitely be a shared IP. 

 

Halloween Returns:

Universal loves to promote their properties. The Halloween movie will come out during the event. It's a Blumhouse production. Michael Myers Comes Home was the highest guest rated maze of all time. He's a Titan of Terror. He wasn't present in 2017. This property is practically begging to be a maze this year!

 

Blumhouse 2:

It was well received with the GP last year and there are a lot of Blumhouse films that could be translated into a live attraction. If Purge comes back once again, I will literally quit HHN forever! 

 

Alice Cooper 3:

This could definitely be the Dark Horse maze of 2018's event. Alice Cooper just released a new album and we all know Murdy loves to work with him. I think 2018 will be the year to complete the Shock Rocker's Trilogy

 

Terror Tram: Nightmare on Elm St:

There's a possible leak that NOES is already locked for Orlando and we all know Hollywood just can't get enough of the classics (unfortunately). I feel like a Terror Tram could be a proper send off to the Springwood Slasher, that is if they put actual effort into it this year. 

 

There's no way that this year can get any worse than 2017 with this lineup!

So from Murdy's tweets, sounds like he's returning for HHN 2018: Even BLACKER Plywood Hallways!  

At least 2017 set the bar really low; about all he can do is trip over it this year.

Idk I have a feeling that after the “meh” reception of last year they’ll up the budget for this year since if something like Stranger Things or IT comes their rights holders wouldn’t let them flop

I know it won't happen, but if Murdy in some way were to at least acknowledge that 2017 had too many black hallways, I would have a degree of hope.  He wouldn't even have to address the budget - just admit that last year was a problem. 

 

So let's imagine Stranger Things comes to HHN 2018.  Does anyone else easily imagine that anything that takes place in the the Upside Down is just a black hallway with vines on the walls?  It's like they wrote that show for Murdy...

I’d hope they’d go with the other images of the Upside Down where it’s blueish and ash falls, but Murdy is probably gonna use the black wall version

Woah it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here... brains been stuck in 2017 with vlog and review videos

 

I don’t think it’s addressing the entire year as a problem but I did talk with John on Twitter a while back and he admitted that Ash has a lot of cuts to it and he also said that he agrees that Ash could’ve been better.

Was hoping to stop in and see if there were some cool speculations, but looks like we are still predicting the same exact IPs we have been predicting for like seven years straight. But you can't blame anyone since Hollywood hasn't really done any unexpected IPs lately. 

I'm holding out hope that the team will admit to their mistakes and put some serious effort and time into 2018. The event could use something entirely fresh and new as well.
