I love when October comes around because that only means one massive thing for me Halloween Horror Nights or as we call it here in Orlando HHN. I was really excited this year because even though they had Walking Dead again, they also had a Halloween Housed based on Michael Myers which is one of my all time favorite classic characters. Unfortunately I had the chance to only go to four out of the eight houses due to the amount of waiting time. I would love to go again so I could experience the other four houses. I love HHN because I love the adrenaline I feel when I walk through the Houses and the Scare Zones to see the amount of creativity and work they put in.
This year was I was definitely not as impressed as I have been in previous years when it come to the Scare Zones. Honestly, I felt they lacked more actors, and they should have spread the Scare Zones throughout the park. The Face Off scare zone was very interesting and intriguing it really is a really great photo opportunity area to take selfies,and photos with very unique creatures.
The Purge scare zone was really cool as far the main actor they had who was dressed in a business suit with a microphone basically inviting you in to the purge and talking to guest and creeping them out. This part was cool because it reminded me of the movie I just wish they had more scare actors in your face making you want to run the opposite ways. The voodoo scare zone was pretty vague, and nothing really scary just a little fog and nothing really worth screaming for.
Meanwhile, the houses were the main aspect of where Universal used its budget at, as well as the costuming, special effect makeup, and other special effects to make them incredible well at least some of them. From worst to best out of the four houses I went to personally goes like this:
4.) Aliens .V.S. Predators
Pro’s: Awesome Costuming Effects on.
Con’s: Was not scary at all. No one screamed, no one jumped, it was so easy to walk through, annoying exit route having to bend under a little tunnel.
3.) Halloween Michael Myers
Pro’s: It was awesome so many Michael Myers popping out and a surprise ending I won’t ruin,
Con’s: The line of 105 minutes was not worth it honestly though.
2.) From Dusk Till Dawn
Pro’s: Keeps you jumping and on your toes and very close to the TV version of the show.
Con’s: I wish it would have been a longer walk through or bigger house for this.
1.) Walking Dead: Prison
Pro’s: So amazing from the moment you walk in and out of it. Definitely messes with your head which makes you more vulnerable to the unexpected scare actors, and the makeup effects were pretty darn scary. Walkers everywhere so beware! Definitely the best Walking Dead house so far in HHN.
Con’s: The flashing lights blinded the f*ck out of me and I almost ended up in a cage full of walkers.
The Housed I missed were: Roanoke – Cannibal Colony, Giggles & Gore Inc, Dollhouse of the Damned, and Dracula Untold- Reign of Blood. 😦
Now from my friends point of view who have attended the other four houses they have loved the clown house, and the doll house even better. They say those were pretty scary because the make up effects, and costuming were quite horrifying and they kept popping everywhere. These two houses the time I went had the less wait time so I would say if you want to make two houses that are really quick in time these would be it. I advise that you do Halloween, and Walking Dead first because the wait time are so ridiculous from 105 minutes and up. Obviously the Rocky Horror Picture Show was great, and Bill and Ted’s Experience was not as fun as other years it lacked material, it was only funny because of Nicki Minaj, and Disney’s Frozen as well as their magic band, and the rest was just kind of pushed in your face to make you laugh and it really wasn’t even funny. But the actors were good so I give them that. If you do go to either HHN24 in Hollywood or Universal Orlando I want to hear from you. I want to know which were you favorite houses, and scare zones. And what did you like least?
