F them :x Here's a suggestion: Don't pay a million dollars for a house that butts up against one of the largest and busiest working studio properties in the entire world. Same goes for airports, amusement parks, and gang bangs. (Wait, can I say gang bangs on the forums??)

Enjoying the report so far! Can't wait for you to start doing the F&F's from Middle America too :cool:

Now it's time for Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights! It was an awesome event, and the scareactors were wonderful! We met up with our really good TPR trip friend Fernando/Nando (screen name Nando!), who we met on the Deep South Trip last year! I think we are his charity project. The theming at USH was top notch, but that is to be expected. It was extremely crowded, so anyone who goes, absolutely needs to get a Front of the line pass, and ClubTPR offers a great discount! So, the eternal Halloween question is, which is better, HHN or Haunt. I haven't done any of them in previous years, so I can only compare this years event. I think both events were incredible, but I did like Knott's just a little bit more.

USHHN Good: Incredible theming, Bill & Ted's show (All their other shows are also very professionally done), Better looking scareactors (more realistic), popular movie based houses, and hot chicks!

Knott's Good: Tons of Mazes!, Lots of rides, great theming, fun scareactors (they interacted more versus staying in character, but both have their benefits), great pre-scare dinner event.

USHHN Bad: Only 4.5 (Vampire and Chucky are the 1/2. Vampire because you can do it during the day) mazes. Massive lines without Front of the Line Pass.

Knott's Bad: Theming is great, but it's not Universal. No front of the line offered (except for the TPR event). Some scareactors didn't stay in character onstage (talking to each other normally in front of the GP).

The big debate between the two is quality over quantity, and it is really tough to compare them. I mean, would you rather go to a park with 5 of the worlds biggest and fastest coasters, or a park that has 14 good coasters? At the Universal event, I went through each maze at least three times, and while they were incredible, after a while you started to learn where the scare actors hid. At Knott's, we were barely able to get through all 14, and each one was completely different so you didn't get bored. As for the shows, Universal definitely takes the cake. I liked the Hanging, but there is a huge gap in professionalism between that and Bill and Ted's. Anyway, enough of my ranting. On to the pictures!!!!
HHN01.jpg
And it starts.
HHN02.jpg
All little boys and girls step this way.
HHN03.jpg
Fernando is about to de devoured.
HHN04.jpg
You should have seen her head explode! Blood everywhere!
HHN05.jpg
Awesome makeup! Definitely what I would expect from USH.
HHN06.jpg
The entrance to House of 1000 Corpses. If you have your '3-D' glasses, they still work with these pictures!
HHN07.jpg
Is that a picture of Hurley in the background?
HHN08.jpg
The '3-D' glasses make the spiderwebs jump out and move in weird ways. Not really 3-D, but it does screw up your depth perception a little.
HHN09.jpg
Stick a pin in him, he's done.
HHN10.jpg
Ed Gein enjoys a midday snack.
HHN11.jpg
Hey, my mom had this surgery last year for her stroke!
HHN12.jpg
This dude scared the living hell out of me.
HHN13.jpg
This dude does not like furries! This house is not Devious approved.
HHN14.jpg
Nando could not get enough of this chick scalping this poor guy.
HHN15.jpg
I told her to keep walking, but she wouldn't listen.
HHN16.jpg
Some people just have that face that you wish you could just rip right off.
HHN17.jpg
Movie night at Amy and Joey's house.
HHN18.jpg
Saw to the head. Blood squirting all over you. Awesome.
HHN19.jpg
Chett'snuts roasting on an open fire....
HHN20.jpg
He's about to grab himself a treat.
HHN21.jpg
Ok, my headache isn't that bad.
HHN22.jpg
Time to fall asleep while staying awake while we are sleeping while awake.
HHN23.jpg
Want to come out and play?
HHN24.jpg
I had to keep telling Fernando that he couldn't take advantage of the actors.
HHN25.jpg
Previews for A Boy and His Blob 2?
HHN26.jpg
Nando, stay away, no touch!
HHN27.jpg
Back outside for some incredible scare zones.
HHN28.jpg
Aaah! Scare acEtor!
HHN29.jpg
He dropped a load right then and there.
HHN30.jpg
Sawchain militants stand guard for Chucky.
HHN31.jpg
A midget dressed as chucky was the funniest, and scariest, thing ever!
HHN32.jpg
Wanna play?
HHN33.jpg
Your mine!
HHN34.jpg
One of the coolest parts of the night. After so many years of seeing this place on the Tram Tour, we get to walk through it.
HHN35.jpg
A view into one of the 'motel' rooms. Looks like ACE trip accommodations.
HHN36.jpg
I had to keep telling Fernando that they weren't real rooms because he kept on trying to lure little children into them.
HHN37.jpg
The Psycho house looked extra eerie for the event.
HHN38.jpg
I guess this is some Ghost that all the Mexicans are freaked out by. I was more freaked out by the kids hanging in the tree. I think I saw Nando shed a tear, and say, "such a waste," for some strange reason.
HHN39.jpg
Very morbid and creepy.
HHN40.jpg
Looked extra scary.
HHN41.jpg
I see you!
HHN42.jpg
Chucky and Ichabod hiding out.
HHN43.jpg
Take one more flash picture and I will show you where this stick goes. (I followed all the rules, and none of the pictures in this update used a flash.)
HHN44.jpg
Loved all the gore.
HHN45.jpg
Save the neck for me Clark.
HHN46.jpg
This area was so realistic and creepy. Best part of the entire event.
HHN47.jpg
Haha, they're all dead!
HHN48.jpg
Looks like he had his hands up for the crash. Definitely a TPR member.
HHN49.jpg
How nice. USH even gave the special needs zombies a job.
HHN72.jpg
Time for Bill & Ted's! Lot's of eye candy for Gays and Straights alike!
HHN50.jpg
Half naked girls, I think I'm going to like this show
HHN51.jpg
<Insert inappropriate joke here>
HHN52.jpg
Oh. My. Gosh! What the heck is that thing on his nose?
HHN53.jpg
This is the closest most TPR members will ever get to what they call, 'females.'
HHN54.jpg
Dedicated to PIERS!
HHN55.jpg
Wes was dressed as Justin Bieber! ;)
HHN56.jpg
Snooki put on a personal show for Nando!
HHN57.jpg
Oh yeah Fernando, that's the money shot.
HHN58.jpg
Even the situation was liking Nando! (By the way, that's really my body, I just photoshopped his face on.)
HHN59.jpg
They did an awesome job!
HHN60.jpg
There was something wonderful happening behind the pile of junk.
HHN61.jpg
Doing what Snooki does best.
HHN62.jpg
I guess Bill & Ted aren't gay.
HHN63.jpg
Old Spice, Prince of Persia, and Lindsay Lohan. Must be Bill & Ted's.
HHN64.jpg
They couldn't bring in the real Lindsay Lohan because everyone would have jumped her and beat her to death.
HHN65.jpg
Many TPR members would let him Futterwack their Bandersnatch.
HHN66.jpg
The Avatar actor was just as annoying and horrible as the movie. Too bad Mr. T didn't take out the fool.
HHN67.jpg
Jacob from Twilight. Yah, ok so so I wish I was just as ripped, but your movies are still the worst movies ever made. (I thought the gays would like this one. Your welcome.)
HHN68.jpg
Edward, the depressed, emo, vomit inducing, vampire.
HHN69.jpg
Another picture for Devious.
HHN70.jpg
Unfortunately, Avatar didn't fall and break his neck.
HHN71.jpg
This lady kept on backing her huge trunk into Nando's personal space. And she had a massive fanny pack that forced Fernando to put his legs around it!
HHN73.jpg
The special effects were incredible. How they got them to float in mid-air without ropes was amazing.
HHN74.jpg
For the twins.
HHN75.jpg
Fernando only takes the important pictures.
HHN76.jpg
During the final, an explosion misfired and everyone was instantly burned!
HHN77.jpg
Their bodies were carbonized on the spot, just like at Pompeii.
HHN78.jpg
I think Hit Girl needs a new mask.
HHN79.jpg
Awesome show!
HHN80.jpg
Most TPR member's garbage is rated NC-17, and is a bio-hazard.
HHN81.jpg
Later in the evening you could add 30 minutes to all the maze times. Thank goodness for Front of the Line Pass' and Club TPR!
HHN82.jpg
Time for the nightmare inducing Saw maze.
HHN83.jpg
The smell in this room was like someone took a dump on the floor and smeared it all over the walls. I literally gagged in this room.
HHN84.jpg
Once again, I had to keep Nando away.
HHN85.jpg
How many TPR members prepare for the trips.
HHN86.jpg
I'll take the end cut please.
HHN87.jpg
So disgustingly awesome.
HHN90.jpg
The Lard Lad Donuts were way too sweet. (I never thought I would ever say anything was too sweet.)
HHN91.jpg
IT was awesome to just sit near hear and watch people get scared half to death.
HHN92.jpg
After seeing all that blood and gore, how about some stomach comforting tacos, corn, and turkey legs?
HHN93.jpg
Next up is Jason! I love how his leg is shredded to the bone!
HHN94.jpg
All those late nights on TPR finally took their toll.
HHN95.jpg
Jason will be the next one profiled on Hoarders.
HHN96.jpg
Personally, he looks half full to me.
HHN97.jpg
Amy was the truly scary person of the night.
HHN98.jpg
This scare actor spun around real quick and caused the girl to fall to the ground. Awesome!
HHN89.jpg
Ok, so we had some more.
HHN88.jpg
Nom Nom Nom.
HHN99.jpg
Till next year! Up next, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

Hahaha... That was a fun night! Thanks for making me seem like a child predator BTW :lmao: And yes, the Front of the Line Pass is so worth the money, but with the TPR Club Discount makes it a lot better. Anyways, I'm glad I spent my b-day weekend with you guys and we need to do this again... Disney for x-mas?!

The last part of the trip, and the first day of our trip, was Disneyland and Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. We really weren't too impressed with this event. We spent the day at the park, and lines during the 'exclusive' event were not any better, and in some cases worse! I was really disappointed with that. Also, the even was exclusive to those who bought tickets, but because they didn't close down the park, there were a ton of people walking around, getting candy, and riding the rides that did not have wristbands. Pretty annoying when you spend that much money. They had the characters all dressed up, and had some rare ones as well, so that was nice, but the lines were too long to take pictures so it wasn't worth it to us. The decorations were neat, but the best part was the amount of candy we received. It was definitely the equivalent to at least half the price of the ticket, so it that sense, the event was worth it. And it was quality candy as well! We got Kit Kat's, Reese's, Crunch bars, Twix, Snickers, Milky Way, Skittles, M&M's, and even Ghiradelli! I probably will do it again, if only for the candy and extra time, but I won't expect it to be any less crowded than the day. It was also the start of Gay Days, so there were a lot of interesting people around! Well, on to the pictures!
HD101.jpg
We have arrived at Disney Construction Adventures! This wall is now virtually gone.
HD102.jpg
This train is home to food, and a ton of cats.
HD103.jpg
After beating all the kids back, Amy finally had the mist to herself, only to find out it wasn't working.
HD104.jpg
Obligatory picture location.
HD105.jpg
Out with the old buildings in front, and in with the new Radiator Springs in the back.
HD106.jpg
This view no longer exists. I told Disney I had a pickup truck, but it didn't work.
HD107.jpg
After being evicted from their 'land,' the bugs life family now just flies around homeless.
HD108.jpg
New paint, new sign, and the removal of all that was good :( NO MORE FLAVOR SWIRLS, NOOOO!
HD109.jpg
The water is still brown, but still nicer with water.
HD110.jpg
Cruella de Vile decided to take a day off and tour the park.
HD111.jpg
It was extremely empty during the morning.
HD112.jpg
I am always sad when a food place goes away, even if it was crappy.
HD113.jpg
Little Mermaid is getting some welding done. I know I'm not supposed to look at the light, but I just can't help it!
HD114.jpg
Definitely created by an artist, and not anyone that has any clue about show space, people movement, or efficiency.
HD115.jpg
Amy waits patiently as I take tons of pictures.
HD116.jpg
I've heard that two heads are better than one, but never two hats.
HD117.jpg
2 Questions. 1. Is it a boy or a girl? 2. Does a rat or a bird live in that hair?
HD118.jpg
From this point until MM, there was nothing open. TSMM, the swings, the food places at the end, and Maliboomer were either being destroyed, remodeled, or just closed for the day.
HD119.jpg
I love the faces some people make on the launch.
HD120.jpg
I did like the look and sound of the waves they used to have, but I do not miss the splash of bright blue toilet water in my face.
HD121.jpg
No matter the age, a mullet never loses its luster.
HD122.jpg
The scaffolding is in place for Maliboomers destruction.
HD123.jpg
The standard MM save your ribs bracing position.
HD124.jpg
This is now on it's way to Goofy's Flight School's tranformation.
HD125.jpg
Donald's boat is slowly being destroyed.
HD126.jpg
You can add Mickey, better theming, and fun music, but it is still just a swing that every single park/carnival in the world has.
HD127.jpg
Amy is content. Probably thinking of life without me.
HD128.jpg
We have probably visited at least 50 times since the Zephyr opened, and this is my first ride on it, and Amy's second. I think another 50 visits sounds right.
HD129.jpg
Construction for the Little Mermaid.
HD130.jpg
From the Zephyr. Ok, so there is one good point to it.
HD131.jpg
Before.
HD132.jpg
After. (It really does look like this now, but without the two second PS cloning clouds look job.)
HD133.jpg
I think WOC during the day is much more entertaining.
HD134.jpg
Nice shot of Amy near GRR.
HD135.jpg
So if it's a fanny pack because it's on your fanny, and a backpack because it's on your back, what the heck is this thing called?
HD136.jpg
Steam Donkey. Sounds like something you would find in a bathroom.
HD137.jpg
Looks are very deceiving. Probably the least wet part of the ride, at least the last ten times I rode it.
HD138.jpg
The afternoon wheelchair parade was as fun as always!
HD139.jpg
This dudes hair remind me of that one weird guys hair in the old Popeye cartoons. Anyone remember his name?
HD140.jpg
I love the muppets, and really wish they would update this show.
HD141.jpg
Now part of ElecTRONica, making this corner of the park useful for at least 2 hours a day.
HD142.jpg
Hey, it's Wilbur from Meet the Robinson's!
HD143.jpg
I do not know how this is possible unless he's hiding a few characters under there.
HD144.jpg
The ECV parade was not nearly as good as years past.
HD145.jpg
Amy and I are waiting for a famous celebrity that we paid a lot of money to have an exclusive meet with.
HD146.jpg
Is that him!?
HD147.jpg
It's Dan! He has his finger on dial so he can call 911 because he's heard the groupie stories before.
HD148.jpg
How does one come up with that concept?
HD149.jpg
Watching the master at work.
HD150.jpg
Even the Navy Seals were working on WOC. Disney really did screw the whole thing up.
HD151.jpg
Not red gay day dude, or Dan's a$$, but the dude in the blue. He seriously does have an inner tube!
HD152.jpg
Another game of Boy or Girl!
HD153.jpg
2 are proud, 4 are a little reserved, and 1 realizes that she shouldn't have worn red today.
HD154.jpg
Looks like Mythbuster's Adam and Jamie had a kid, and he hooked up with Wilford Brimley, because it's the right thing to do, and the tasty way to do it.
HD155.jpg
Yet another! Person on the right, Boy or Girl? It's not as easy as it looks!
HD156.jpg
Definitely an example of pear shaped. (Yes, I'm going to hell)
HD157.jpg
C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A in rainbow colors, well, it is Gay Days.
HD158.jpg
These chicks could easily beat me up. And yes, the answer to the last game is female.
HD159.jpg
Today is 'Each piece of clothing has to be a different color" day!
HD160.jpg
Sorry guys, SFMM is a little more North.
HD161.jpg
Disneyland was nicely decorated for Halloween.
HD162.jpg
This would be the true test for the 'new' Harry Potter seats.
HD163.jpg
I think someones pants are a bit too tight.
HD164.jpg
I thought for sure we were in for a massive storm. Luckily though, it was just the normal gasses, smell, and meth labs coming from East LA.
IMG_3896.jpg
Boy or Girl!?
HD166.jpg
Nice picture with the pumpkin.
HD167.jpg
Another girl that could kick most guys butts.
HD168.jpg
"Ma said that if you get any closer, I can eat you."
HD169.jpg
Big Love came out for a day at the park.
HD170.jpg
Gee, no one coming out of the Tiki Room is smiling or happy at all. What a surprise!
HD171.jpg
This area was empty most of the day.
HD172.jpg
Nice hat.
HD173.jpg
This dude with the funky hair reminds me of a cartoon character, but I can't figure it out. Anyone?
HD174.jpg
Perfect example of the real causes of childhood obesity. This kid had two huge marshmallow chocolate thingys, and his parents bought them for him. If the parents are responsible, problem solved.
HD175.jpg
This guy had this funky mohawk poof hair do thing going on.
HD176.jpg
One of the ghosts from the Haunted Mansion decided to take her break out front.
HD177.jpg
Hey, she's got my wife's hair!
HD178.jpg
The Frontier Ranch had some really good pumpkin carvings.
HD179.jpg
Pretty impressive.
HD180.jpg
Maybe they ran out of creativity with these.
HD181.jpg
The only 'character' without a line.
HD182.jpg
He's just dreaming about when the kids will disappear.
HD183.jpg
These guys were really funny, and very feminine. Piers would not have liked them.
HD184.jpg
Mommy, can I take a picture with the giant pumpkin from Charlie Brown?
HD185.jpg
The 'bride' from Haunted Mansion decided to take a run through Pirates before her shift started.
HD186.jpg
MNSSHP starts! The lighting and fog made the riverfront area look really good.
HD187.jpg
This signified the entrance to a butt load of candy.
HD188.jpg
Amy with her candy bag in front of Splash Mountain
HD189.jpg
This was a line for candy. There were two line, each starting at opposite ends. Many times, if the line was long, you just walked to the other end and that line would be empty.
HD190.jpg
Amy in front of a much better looking Rivers of America. I wish it looked like this year round.
HD191.jpg
They cranked Dumbo up to turbo for the event.
HD192.jpg
This guy had a really good costume.
HD193.jpg
DJ LANCE!!! This kid had the best costume the entire week!
HD194.jpg
I would have to lose a major bet to ever be caught in this costume.
HD195.jpg
I am waiting for a Chevy Chase style throwdown.
HD196.jpg
This is all we saw of the parade. We were too busy getting candy.
HD197.jpg
For Elissa.
HD198.jpg
This poor scarecrow had no one interacting with him all night. It was pretty funny watching him talk to himself.
IMG_3039.jpg
Thank you Disney for a TON of candy! See you next year!!!

Wow. You should have called this TR "Taking Pictures of Random Guests and Making Fun of Them". I know it was meant to be funny, but mostly it was just mean.

I went to Mickey's Halloween Party 2 weeks ago and definitely thought it was worth the $$$. The candy was awesome (as mentioned) and we got to do Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy with less than a 10 minute wait. Much better than during the day, if you ask me. But Haunted Mansion's line continued to be ridiculous. The Halloween fireworks show was also awesome.
