Last year we stayed in finnegans and walked over to kid zone. By the time we got there, everyone had moves to the tent houses.
My suggested order

House of horrors
Alice cooper
Penn&teller

Walking dead

Silent hill
Gothic
Dead end


Hoh exits ner alice entrance, Alice exita near p&t.

Sound stages usually all exit the same, but silent hill will have the longest wait, and its a long as hell walk to dead end. I felt like we were walking forever on weds.....and that was taking a shortcut through the other ss areas

Yeah, I always get Express. It usually ensures that I will see every house at least twice a night, though sometimes I run into a snag and have to skip one. The less time I'm spending waiting in line for a house = the more time I get to spend playing in the streets
(I like them a little more than the houses... more room for interaction.)

Since I am a heavy drinker
I think I will stick with FInnegan's and that S&S.
I am really looking forward to Silent Hill and Walking Dead, so I think it will be a better deal to be on that end.

I predict the longest lines ver for Walking Dead..

I think as soon as I get Silent Hill done, dash to Walking Dead!

Cheers!

Wow! I hadn't seen the official map yet!

I'm so psyched Silent Hill will be (should be) the first house straight from S&S!

I am really hoping it will be on the UTH Tour as well..
Now, thinking two myself, since Silent HIll Revelation is coming out, they might not have it due to permissions and stuff (as they did for Wolfman and The Thing)...

So.. S&S in New York area it is... no AP area for me...

Cheers!

I think "Gothic" will be S & S house since it's right down the street from the holding area. "Silent Hill" is the stage to the left which held "Dead Silence" a few years ago. That house usually opens at 7pm and draws a quick crowd.

This is the best method.

Gothic will be the soundstage that Nightengales was in last year (I think). Silent Hill is the one to the left once you pass rockit, and Dead End is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY in the back..it's in the SS closest to IOA. It's damn hike!

Walking Dead will have a huge line.....but since Silent Hill is also a big name (and it's freaking sickly insane...with the lights on!) and you have to think...it's in the front of the park, with the rest. That will be the longest line in the park most likely...which will bleed over to the rest of the houses. Seriously suggest doing those three first then footing it to TWD.

Metro- have you thought about which order you will do the houses after seeing the map?

How about you Mac?

Is Finnegans in the New York area?

i'm going 4 nights, trying to plan on a 5th night.

for 2 of the nights (thur/fri), i have ressies at finnegans so that will be my start up point.
sunday night at finnegan sNs.


saturday nights, i will do the kid zone sNs.

i prefer the finnegans as i meet up with other visiting homies.

this is the time i can visit with others that i have met online.
once a year i can visit with other homies at hhn. the time period prior to opening and waiting at the holding area, gives me plenty of time to touch base with others.
i enjoy that as much as i do the hhn event.

i bought the ROF w/express so i won't experience the extremely long waits that will happen. also, going up to 5 nights gives me a lot of leeway.


if i was going only one night and did not have the express pass, i would hop around the park w/out staying at finnegans sNs.


finnegans is across from the Mummy.
the holding area is where the Blues Brothers perform.

once the event opens, we all will know more about the crowd flow and pattern of which direction to go first for the houses.
if you are not going opening weekend, be sure to check the darkside threads about other's hhn experience.
many will share what they have encountered to avoid long line waits.

Not really. I'll be going enough times that I will hit all the houses including the employee preview night Wednesday. I think I'll do the Silent Hill and Walking Dead houses during the preview and then finish them all off over the weekend since I'll be there Friday and Saturday nights.

Yes...Finnegan's is on Delancey Street which is in the NY area.
