I know they say it is intense and is not recommended for a kid under 13. I showed my DS 12 lots of You Tube videos of HHN and he is an avid horror movie buff. I really think he'll be fine as far as the actors go.

Is there anything else I should be concerned about? I assume there will be some drunken behavior. I've never been myself and I'm not sure what to expect. What about the Bill and Ted show? Is that appropriate for PG13 type of experience?

TIA!

bill and ted's is not geered to the younger set.

in the beginning they do annouce that if you are offended over language, nudity, etc, etc, etc, now is the time to leave.....



it's not a pg 13 experience.

It's "PG13", but it's as close to "R" as possible (if that makes sense).

Bill and Ted's has always just had a lot of innuendo that's just pushing the lines of what you see in a lot of PG-13 movies,some bad language but no nudity, but a lot guys and girls do wear some small outfits.The Rocky Horror Picture show tribute they had a couple of years ago was worse and less suited for young kids in my opinion,Bill and Ted's is a spoof of all the years popular movies,shows and current events that younger kids probably like.

Some 12 year olds can take this type of thing in stride but only you would know for sure. We have a lot of top notch haunted houses in our area including one called the Haunt House that is pretty intense. We entered just after a lady and her son that looked to be about 10 or 11. She was nervous but it was clear that it was no big deal for him.

Could you take him to a good local haunt park just to make sure that he'll be OK?

My 15 y/o brother loves scary movies, masks and gory make up, but he doesn't like haunted houses because he doesn't like when the actors get close to him or jump out.

HHN is expensive and it would be a bummer to get there and not be able to stay if he was freaked out.

So either a hard PG13 or a soft R.... got it.

Thanks everyone!
We are already planning on being at Universal in a few weeks- I'll probably just do it if he still wants to. Worst case scenario, he and I leave early and his brother and step-father stay and enjoy.

I think he'll be fine... he's on the cusp of the "recommended" 13, although that is definitely a 13 that enjoys this sort of thing. It's not just haunted houses you go inside, there are street areas sectioned off as scare zones. So you will run into scary themed areas even just walking around.

You definitely have the alcohol element, with lots of skimpy nurse zombies wandering around dolling out tube shots and other spirits. I've seen people getting sick from drinking too much, but it never takes long for security to assist, from what I've been witness to.

We had two 12 year olds there last year. One opted not to go through the haunted house, but enjoyed the scare zones. The other loved it all, and went back for a second night with his dad... he LOVES this stuff, and nothing phased him. I think the Bill & Ted Show is not to be missed - it is a strong PG13, but there wasn't any nudity. I think the most offensive thing from last year's performance were a "string" of jokes regarding Woody's pullstring from Toy Story.

If you go, sign up for the Stay and Scream, so he can sort of see the park go from non-scary to scary... and you might get a haunted house in before it gets too dark so it's not over the top scary right out of the gate.

He will be one of the few kids there that you see that night!
