Halloween Horror Nights Orlando 29 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

As HHN officially opens in......about 4 hours, let's move from Speculation to Discussion!

 

If you are reviewing the event, please create a thread in the dedicated reviews section.

[EDIT - I need to ask mz to create a reviews subtopic...]

 

 

 

As I type this, people are sitting in the early entry holding areas (im)patiently waiting...

 

I am jealous.  But I am sitting in a comfortably cool 72 degree office, so they are a bit jealous of me.

 

Have a great time out there!

Ghostbusters, reminds me of AvP. Not really scary but just really cool costumes and sets, which is why i love them both.

Let me DISCUSS how hot it is here, oh my god, but I’m so thrilled to be waiting here, especially compared to sitting in a college class or in my apartment. Picked up my ticket and I have about an hour to just listen to everyone around me talk about hype and one lovely couple talk about “that klown house” and I can’t help but check back on this forum. HHN is back at long last!! (Speaking of, if anyone sees someone with neon pink eyeshadow, pls come say hello ! I haven’t met anyone from here before !)

You see, that's why I locked the speculation thread.  Because we don't have to speculate about the weather out there.  It's freakin HOT!

 

I will try to send cool thoughts your way.  I hope it works.

 

Let us know about the crowd size and give us some idea of wait times.

Oh, and the app has a new set of games that are available only in the park, including East Coast vs West Coast trivia battle!

That will be interesting, as there will only be a few hours when the parks align for HHN.

I think I know my HHN Orlando trivia better than my HHN Hollywood trivia, and I live in California :)

 

My trip plans for HHN have been a mess...

I was originally going the week of Sep 18th, but learned KISS was going to be in town at the Staples Center.

Bought a suite seat for the concert and moved my travel plans for HHN to the week of the 25th.

...aaaand today I learn this.  KISS has postponed the Staples Center date to March of 2020.

Anyway, I'm locked and loaded for another stay at Sapphire Falls and a few days at HHN!

Was headed straight to Stranger Things, saw that 120-minute wait, yeeted into Zombieland instead. VERY cool. Think about the hissing sound effects from Vamp but much more realistic and much louder. Took me a second to think about whether or not the scareactors were somehow activating those sounds with some kind of trigger because they were so good at acting along with them.

CORPSES: VERY very long; thought it had to have been over about 2/3 through. Wow! Fishboy was an impressively-sculpted figure but wasn’t lit up, so it didn’t pay off. Lots of Otis. Spaulding is very sparse with his scares; actually told my boyfriend “oh, I guess there is a hole tonight” until he pointed him out, but he looked very close to the film Spaulding based on what I could see! Dr. Satan is SO impressive, and actually got me as a scare even though he was completely in the open and visible, even behind a table and therefore away from me, for the whole time. I looked at him and gasped and whispered “Doctor Satan..!” to my boyfriend, but the Doctor himself was making eye contact with me and held out his gross syringe fingers in my face. Felt the squishy floors of a wet house before I felt the water, so for now, don’t worry about getting too wet. GREAT HOUSE if you’ve seen it at least!!

YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO LOVE DEPTHS OF FEAR. HOLY SHIT.

Well I just got in a few minutes ago and already having issues. Our tickets got misprinted and it didn’t include the whole barcode. They took us over to someone to try and reprint them but the system is having issues reprinting passes with express built in. They were still able to manually enter the ID to get us in, but we’d have to do the same for every house we wanted to use. Just tried at Ghostbusters and it’s a clusterfuck. Kinda annoyed but I understand it’s the first night and there will always be issues. They recommended going to guest services later in the night to see if the issue is resolved.

Sorry to hear that, marc.

Deep breaths and know we'd rather be where you are, even with the frustration you are facing.

I’ll save details for a more formal review, but Zombieland does bring back Shoot to Thrill. It isn’t part of a show like it was last year, but it’s still. There. So.

Anyone can confirm if HHN refillable cup is back?

It is not. They’re selling a branded Freestyle cup but you have to pay to reactivate each night.

Got to do 9 out of 10 houses tonight, and 4 out of 5 scare zones. Yeti is AMAZING. And FINALLY, A GOOD HOUSE IN THE MIB TENT!

Well I’m back at guest services.. again. The first time they were able to print new tickets for us. However, when we got to the next house, it said they weren’t activated. Oy..

The lagoon show was so beautiful and the effects were so breathtaking that it got me teary eyed, ( maybe it was because if Hopper and 11) I dont want to sound lame, but, yeah i had to hold back. It really is the best outdoor show i have ever seen from any park.

I mean, I just read Ringwraith’s critique and they loved it a lot, but I just.......hoo boy. Loved the zone, found the house just full of constant patterns and bright colors with no more subtle scenery breaking it up start to finish. The triggers were all extremely loud and almost all just bizarro funhouse boings and such, all overlaid on top of each other. Very loud, very bright, very fast, no time to breathe. We were part of the first six or so people going in after a cast change, so maybe the scareactors were a little trigger-happy, but...oof.

 

edit: not to mention the fact that nothing was scary...even what I expected to see and love, the cotton candy cocoons, went unnoticed because of all of the other distractors and the overall rushed feeling of that house.

So even with all the issues we had tonight, we were still able to do 8 houses with express. I don’t rate any houses until I’ve done them a few times, but first impressions were great. Every house is very well put-together and the set designs are amazing. Fingers crossed tomorrow goes a little more smoothly. For now.. it’s shower and bed time.

I feel like the really toned down the scares this year (with the exception of the two parade warehouses). However, the sets were alot more grand and the effects and scareactor costumes looked the best in Horror Nights history (for as long as I have been going).

I feel like Killer Klowns was suffering from opening night bugs and will get better in the upcoming weeks. I went to Universal Movie Monsters at rope drop and my last house at 12:30. I saw an improvement already.

Jesus. What did you think about Klowns? Please I need someone else to talk to about this because it just felt so uncomfortable.
