I'm wondering if they have significantly increased the number they sell. I always buy mine well in advance since learning that lesson but I honestly don't notice much difference in the wait times for the EP lines. Of course, I was also there the year they introduced it and I think it was $25 for a Saturday night, now it's like $80!

At any rate, I misunderstood your post, no worries.

I'm not seeing it if there is, and it seems to be getting later and later that they let us in on it.

Of course, I still think the Bloody Mary year was the peak overall. We're addicted to HHN and have been since 2000, but that year was the absolute best with the website, story, theme, houses, and FLYING FRIGGIN' MONKEYS!

What they sayin', doll? I like all of the things they've announced so far, but I have to admit I can't see any common thread to tie them together.

What rides are usually available during the party? We are planning on going on 10/26 so I'm just wondering what ride attractions will be open besides the haunted houses.

Houses/scare zones

we are newbies to universal and to HHN. So, I have a couple of questons?
Do they have some houses they do every year? Also, what are the other houses? I'm unsure of what exactly a scare zone is, I can only imagine.

We've purchased our tickets and the express, so we are ready to go.

Thanks to Raven for all her great information!!!

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO. what a ride!

More questions

We decided not to do Stay and Scream, and changed our tickets to FF.

We are staying at RPH. I read somewhere there is a separate line or entrance for onsite guests to go into HHN. Is this right? And also where is it?

Thanks.

House theme are different from year to year. They have only released a few house themes this year so far: Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare and Silent Hill. The rest of the houses are a mystery at this point. The Walking Dead will be featured as a house as well. A scarezone is an area that you walk through where scareactors are wandering around. The zones are outside as opposed to being covered like a house would be.

The hotel entrance is located near the front gates and off to the right. There will be a sign pointing you in the right direction. Hotel guests will allowed to enter at 6pm.

Boo to youse too!.....

metro pretty much said it all for the hotel guests.
you will need your hotel photo id card, hotel key card and FF pass to use the private hotel entrance to the park.
if the guests at the sns section have not been released at 6:00 and you are entering the park at 6:00, you will be guided to the sns holding area waiting for the all clear from park security.

UO hasn't released the theme this year.
rumors about say they know the theme/icon, but until everything is released officially, we all tweedle our thumbs.

the houses can sometimes reflect the theme & icon in different ways.

most of the houses are congo line style.
line up and follow the peep ahead of you.
really unable to stand and look around once inside the houses.

the scare zones are in open, not confined, sections.
you can stand there and stare all you want........

there are shows at hhn.
some have been mentioned already.

i know you will have so much fun at hhn.

hhn virgins..............they always have a lot of fun.
