So~ since we will be at Finnegans, how does this sound as a good order to do the houses: Silent Hill
Gothic
Dead End
Walking Dead
House of Horrors
Alice Cooper
Penn & Teller

Does this make the most sense?

Thanks!

Looks like a good plan to me.

If I only had one night, and not enough time , I would skip the 20 Penny Circus as far as shows go, and skip Alice Cooper ( unless you are a huge fan and could understand the theme). If I had to skip another house I would skip Dead End.

For me, Gothic was the most amazing house I have ever seen. Just my two cents. :-)

I would do House of Horrors and Alice last. Those lines have been the shortest. Lines are the longest for Silent Hill, Walking Dead and Penn & Teller. Try to avoid Walking Dead and Penn & Teller right after a Bill & Ted show lets out. The crowds there really swell then.

I would do:

Silent Hill
Gothic
Dead End
Walking Dead
Penn & Teller
House of Horrors
Alice Cooper

Dead End was a good house, and I got the best scare of the night in there. One of the mirror girls got me good...

Gothic is a must see. The quality of the costumes and the set detail are amazing! There are even TWO flying gargoyles!

Agree completely and the same creature gets me every time I go through Gothic...even when I'm looking for him!

I was so impressed by the room where it looked like you were above the pews, that I didn't see the gargoyle at the end of the path! He got me, though!

Last Sunday night the lines got pretty long quickly which was surprising to me. If you have the money in your budget for an Express pass, I would consider it otherwise it's going to be a long night.

We will be there for our first HHN a week from tomorrow! So excited!!! How fast do you think the ep's will sell out next Thursday? Should we get them right away or wait and see if one is needed? I am thinking the guideline of waiting to buy ep's until you see if you really need one is not the same for HHN as it is for parks.

If you want EPs for next Thursday, you should go ahead and purchase now. If you wait until you arrive, they will either sell out or you'll have to wait in the long lines to purchase.

Can I buy them at the park during normal park hours?

And thanks for all your help Metro- you are helping this trip be more awsome than I could have done myself. Your insights and fast answers mean more than I can say. May sound cheesey, and maybe I'm just tired right now, but you are making a difference in our trip. Thanks.
