Usually the holding area is released at 6pm...or a little before.

Good luck getting out."

Hmmm ducking and crouching - interesting!
Ok, so this makes me wonder...what are you going to wear? I think I might want jeans on if I'm going to be crawling around on the floor, but would that be too hot? (were going oct 24-29)

I doubt you will have to crawl around on the floor...mainly due to possible injury and I don't believe Universal would set themselves up for something like that. I'm going opening night and will make sure I do this house to find out what's going on.

BTW...I never wear jeans...I always wear cargo shorts.

No crawling, just ducking and crouching. Like metro said, they won't have anyone crawling on the floor. But anyway - I usually wear shorts unless its a cool night then I'm in jeans.

I really don't think it's going to be a big deal. Universal knows there are people who have mobility issues and unless they make it clear before you go into the house, they shouldn't have anything that's restrictive. As I stated before, I'll check on this opening weekend and report back.

I gotta admit tho,I've never seen Silent Hill.I youtubed it and wow.I gotta see this movie before I go to get the storyline!!
For those who haven't seen it (or played the games), General premise is this:
Huge underground coal fire starts in a coal mining town. Town gets evacuated, evil engulfs the town. Visitors to the town after the evacuation get pulled into the evil world that has developed and can never really escape.

Or, you can order it to watch instantly for $9.99 on your TV using XBox or Playstation

I was going to suggest the same thing.

If It's something that is within the house that requires any sort of real physical ability to navigate thru, My guess is there will be an "alternate pathway" around the obstacle available, similar to last year's slanted floorway within the shipwreck in the Parade Building house.

I'm watching Silent Hill right now. Donald Duck, do you have a ROKU box for internet tv? It has a free app called Crackle, and you can watch Silent Hill on it for free. Looks like there is a related Crackle.com on the internet.

From Screamscape - "I’ve heard a great rumor for HHN 22, involving the park’s roaming bands of monsters. In a way you can say that the park’s Scaractors are being truly unleashed… or let off the chain as it were. In short… no place will be safe. Scaractors will be allowed into restaurants, stores and yes… even restrooms, all in the name of the ultimate scare. This sounds awesome… and was always my primary complaint about the HHN parade back in the old days… because it was a safe haven from the monsters. In HHN… you should never feel safe, so I can’t wait to see this in action."

Very exciting to read that Rip!

And in the same vein - on HHN facebook site someone commented about the SC not being allowed in the bathrooms and Universal responded - who said we won't be in the bathrooms? There are NO safe places!

Still not sure we'll see them in the bathrooms...but...
