that line for ticket buying will be long the hour prior to park closing.
Good to know. We will probably get them on the 30th then. Thanks!

Follow up question: I've seen here that some nights sell out. Is it just the express passes that sell out or is it possible the event itself will sell out and we won't be able to get our event tickets even if we already have the express passes?

I doubt the entire event would sell out. Universal wants to cram as many people as possible inside for the event. EPs sell out before event tickets so...you should purchase the event tickets as soon as you arrive. You don't have to use them the same night you buy them.

i have done every night of hhn over the years.
even done hell week.


thursdays are cheaper than friday for the hhn tickets and express passes.
thursdays also have less crowds than Friday's do for hhn.

the park closes earlier on thursdays.
friday hhn closes out at 2:00 am.


more will be in the park for hhn on a friday than thursday.

I've gone to like 18 of the 22 years and in the last 10-12 years have gone only on non peak nights(Wed,Thurs or Sunday) for those years except for last year where I went on a Saturday near the end of October.I was amazed that we got through the houses as fast or faster than ever before.We still did Stay and Scream like we do every year so we got a head start on the crowds which definitely did come later on but I thought they would come earlier than they did.The ticket was still a lot more expensive than a non peak night but we were with others who could only visit that Saturday.This year I'll go back to a Thursday or Sunday but now I know that as long as you do stay and scream,even on a Saturday you can still get the houses in pretty quick.The difference is on non peak nights the lines go down at the end of the night,on a peak night they got so bad there was nothing to do unless you were willing to wait an hour plus,for rides and houses.

Just seen this on Screamscape...

According to the whispering voice on the phone, we may see as many as five haunts based on existing horror franchises: Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead, American Werewolf in London, Resident Evil and The Walking Dead...

I`m probably very much in the minority here with this......but none of those appeal to me in the slightest....especially Resident Evil and Walking Dead...........not what scares my little over active imagination anyway.

I hope they come up with better than that as I wouldn`t bother going more than once I don`t think with those houses.

I loved the years that they used Jack and Bloody Mary....Psychoscarepy really spooked my little boots off!!!!!

I completely agree too. I wish they would stop with the franchises and start with the original houses again. While some of the those look interesting, I would rather see original stuff...like in the old days of HHN.

i'm not that impressed with the 8 that were listed.


it really depends on how these houses will be pulled off.

I like some of the themed houses.
Last year, I loved the Penn and Teller house, but it reminded me of another house from the year before.
And I have to say, an Alice Cooper house was pretty great.

But these themes? Ehhh... MAYBE Cabin in the Woods.
