    Buying discount AAA Tickets?

    Trying to find a solid answer - hoping someone here might know... If we purchase tickets to Universal from AAA in advance, does the AAA member need to be with us to enter the park, or do we need to just have the card?

    HHN - suitable for kids?

    Planning a big family holiday next year, which will include my 10-year-old nephew. Will HHN be suitable for him? I've watched walk through vids etc and the houses never actually seem that scary, but I guess it's different to actually being there. The rest of the group are 25>. I'm not too...
