    I just found out last night that I will be going down to Universal this weekend! I am trying to get everything squared away,but am trying to figure out stay & scream. We have 2 day park to park tickets and want to attend hhn on Sat. Night. I was planning on purchasing the stay & scream tickets but don't know how they work. If hhn opens at 6:30, but you are in the stay & scream holding area do they let you in early or do you go in @ 6:30 but are just ahead of the crowds. If we are in IOA when should we leave to line up for stay & scream? Any help would be appreciated, i've never had to figure all of this out in such a short time period!

    To do Stay & Scream you need a ticket for Universal Studios so you're in the park before 5pm (4.30 to be safe), then any HHN ticket (S&S Upgrade, Frequent Fear, Rush Of Fear etc) will allow you into the holding area by Finnegans Bar & Grill. Whilst those not staying for HHN leave the park you can get drinks and food at the bar. Then around 6pm you're let out to get a head start on the houses before thoses queueing outside get let in.

    Just to add to what you said...I found out the other night that the outside gates open as soon as a "park clear" is announced so it could be before 6:30pm when the gates open. That was certainly the case on Friday. We were released right around 6pm and so were the people outside.
