HHN 2012 Touring Plan Feedback
 
Hello, this will be our first time attending HHN. I am attempting to create a touring plan for the night.

We be arriving at City Walk on at 4:30pm on 10/24 and plan on getting in line for HHN at 5:45pm. We do have express passes.

If HHN begins at 6:30 is 5:45 too early to get in line?
Do you recommend doing all the houses first then do the rides? My current plan has a mix of rides and houses.

Is this a realistic plan, if HHN closes at 12:00? Any feedback is appreciated!!

  2. Rip Ride Rocket (Donít think express is available)
  3. Silent Hill (Use Express)

  5. Mummy (Use Express)
  6. Walking Dead (Use Express)

if you only have hhn tix, try to be in line at the gate earlier than what you listed.

On some nights, the entrance gate line can start as early as 5:00



If your priority for hhn is the houses, do the rides last.

Do the houses and shows, then rides if the park is still open

I will check when I go tomorrow, how long the house wait times are.
Possible, those wait times for houses will be similar to when you go.

I'm going to move this to the main board for more responses.

Remember...don't use your Express for the houses if the wait time is under 20 minutes. Save it for later when the line is really long.

I was at the front of the park at 6:10 Friday night.
Was going to the VIP lounge.

Saw that the lines outside the front gates were really long,
and, they were letting those peeps into the park early.
They did not wait until the 6:30 opening time tonight.

From the four nights I've been this year, 3 of them I was there by 5:30, the gate has always opened around 6, whenever after they release the Stay and Scream holding areas they'd release us. This half hour allows you to get quite a bit of done with little or no wait. Last night by 7:00 pm we had seen Silent Hill, Gothic, Dead End, and House of Horrors.
And also like Macraven said, I'd be at the gate a little sooner and save the rides until the end, but besides that your plan is very do-able.


(Wow, it's been awhile since I've posted here XD)
