I am not going to Universal during the day for Stay and Scream because we have wedding planning stuff to do earlier in the day. If I can schedule the wedding planning stuff earlier I will try to do that, but I think that might cost more than just getting an express pass?
this is so cute!
you are going to orlando for wedding plans and catching a night of hhn...........

i like how you think.


a few past years, a ticket was sold that allowed peeps to enter the park at 3:00.
think it sold for $20?

if they offer that, take advantage of it.

you can hit some rides in the 2 hours in the park before it closes.
you can wait in the holding area/stay and scream, until the park reopens for hhn.
since you have been before, you are aware of this procedure.
the TM's scan your hhn tix when you enter that holding area.

if that doesn't pan out, be in line at the outside gate as early as you can.
you do kill some time waiting there before hhn begins.

if no one sets the metal detectors off when you are coming in, the line will go fast.
hopefully you can start the evening by 6:45.

I'm not "addicted" to TWD. I think its a good show, but its not the best show out there. Heck, I didn't even start watching it till this year, and that was just cause it was strongly rumored to be part of HHN again this year. I think American Horror Story is a better show in terms of scare factor and story and such. (Which there was going to be an AHS house, but it got pulled last minute and replaced with another house).

The announcement of Walking Dead only scare zones is actually making me reconsider my decision to attend. I find zombies to be pretty boring and one dimensional. It's not like they can actually think and develop a plan to attack you. And the way it is looking so far the entire event is going to be zombies, zombies, and then some more zombies.

Zombies don`t do anything for me either.........but I have to trust that Universal will still make it better than it sounds so far for us. I would love there to be more psychologically scary themes.......but it is what is, and if we go the first night and it sucks......which I don`t think it will, well we won`t bother going back.

In saying that........I can scream with fright from someone coming up behind me and saying hello if I haven`t seen them so I expect it`ll still be done well and we`ll enjoy every second of it

I`m hoping for fun filled nights with some screams thrown in for good measure

TWD is wicked!


I've also heard good things about American Horror Story but haven't watched that yet.

Cheers!

Has US announced that there will be "Scarezones" around US or will the whole park be a "Scarezone"?

DD and DH love to be scared silly and want the entire park to be a scarezone. I can only take so much and would like some non-scare parts of the park, so I can just relax.

I must have missed the other sites, where the info has been given. Is the whole park a scarezone or just parts of it?

thanks!

roaming SA throughout the park.

sorry, i misread your first question.




i prefer the scare zones that they had back in 2011 and years past.


with the WD show, you know those zombies don't talk but grunt, groan and move slow.


so what are those scare actor WD zombies gonna do.....
can't see them running after you, or chasing you.
if they do, it would be at a snails pace.

We need the zombies from "28 Days/Weeks Later" movies. Or the "Runners" from the hit PS3 game "The Last of Us" (hell of an awesome game must I say).

Cheers!

It might be a mix of roaming and fixed. There are going to be set scenes from The Walking Dead acting as scarezones (I read somewhere we'll see the tank from the first 2 episodes, Hershel's barn and the camp).

last years WD house was based on the first 2 seasons of the show.
that included the barn....

this year, season 3 will be the set up.


of course, things at hhn change all the time and even during the hhn season.
something could be planned prior to opening and be changed the first night.


i'll just wait and see what does happen with the walkers in the park when i go.

That would be way cool. I just purchased those movies to them to watch again this weekend. Been undecided on purchasing The Last of Us, though, but it sounds like an amazing game. I guess I am in the minority, I love zombie films, games, stories and cannot wait to be immersed in all its undead gory/glory at HHN in October.

I love zombies as well. Played The Last Of Us, and it is a truly brilliant game!

Have fun at HHN
