Considering that HHN starts a little more than just a month away, the website is very disappointing. Lack of information, plus lack of interactive links makes the website very boring this year. Probably the worst HHN website that I'm aware of.

A little off-topic, but check out the character that HHN Singapore is getting this year:



He looks great. I wish he'd pay Orlando a visit

Yea, what is up with the website? Didn't go last year, but spent hours on the website playing those crazy games. This year - basically one page with a couple of links? No overall theme, unless it's The Walking Dead - then tell us, for pete's sake. Really, really disappointing effort, Uni creative, with just about a month to go.

The only hope - last year I believe they released final details around August 30 and I don't remember exactly when I was messing on the website.

Another hint for another house.

HHN fans, we’ve announced 4 of our hair-raising haunted houses featuring the demented worlds of Silent Hill, the flesh eating zombies of AMC’s The Walking Dead, the cryptic mind of Alice Cooper, and the bad boys of magic, Penn & Teller.

How about a little bit more…we don’t want to give it all away, what fun is there in that? But here’s a little tease to get your skin crawling…

we are planning to go to HHN for the first time this year. I understand tour info has not been released, but historically, what is the RIP tour? How Much is it typically? Do I need to buy my tickets now or wait till the tour info is released.

Rest In Peace tours.....
very fitting


day tours for a close up of inside houses and night tour in groups are offered to the public.
both have fees for the tours.

nothing has been released yet for the rip tours for hhn.
(costs, dates, hours, etc)



don't want to say past costs as none of us know what the cost for tours will be this year.

information and details will be posted on the HHN wbsite when it becomes available.

we all will find out in due time.
still have over a month before hhn begins.

I love the houses so far but I'm also disappointed at the lack of a theme and so little on the website. I've got a kid who would love to go but it's hard to be enthusiastic about this considering the price.

i'd like to think they're diverting all their energy into making the houses over the top this year vs website design but seriouslywhy the cut back? Lots of top notch college interns would jump at the chance to maintain website gratis.

Usually no later than 6pm...just make sure you've paid and are ready to go by 5:45pm...they could release earlier than 6pm.
