P. 263: New Howl-O-Scream event announced!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Think about it: Universal plans their HHN events YEAR round. So unless all of the houses and actors and everything are being hired third party, I just don't see how they can pull this off. Reminds me of that event 2 years ago near Gaylord Palms. It was OK but nothing like HHN. 

I was thinking about that event when this was announced, and some of the others. I wonder if SEAS might have acquired some assests from other events in the area that didn't make it through the pandemic, set pieces, costumes, design/management talent etc. I'm sure it's possible to lease out the a haunt from a third party company so maybe there's some of that going on behind the scenes to put this on. Of all places in America Orlando is probably a pretty good market to create an event from scratch in 6ish months and have it be halfway decent.

AMEN!!! It's so dumb to me that a company (Premier) which made headlines and won awards and praise from all of us for taking OTSR's OFF of rides that didn't need it is now needlessly putting OTSR

Is this like spanking the monkeys?

Is this a Halloween event or a drag show?

Six Flags Darien Lake put its Fright Fest together in like 3 weeks the year it was last taken over by Six Flags again. I believe an outside company that came in to do the work.

That said, if it's ANYTHING like that, it will NOT be a good event.... lol.

My point is that just because they have an insane amount of work to be done doesn't mean it can't be done. Yes I know they better have higher standards but with 3 months they can definitely throw something decent together. With Howl-o-scream TAMPA reducing to 5 houses I'm guessing they will take over some of the stuff from there as well.

I'm interested to see how this will play out. It's never going to be as "good" as Horror Nights, but with smaller crowds houses I can see them being more enjoyable than the HHN conga lines... even though the sets themselves may not be as good.

I also think it's a great way for people to experience the coasters that they generally would have passed on by otherwise not visiting the park. I don't think a lot of people realize what great rides SeaWorld has. We all know, but those that go to Universal and Disney usually couldn't care less about SeaWorld. That may change when/if they get bodies into the event.

I'm definitely going to try to make it on opening weekend Saturday night. The only problem is I need to wake up early for Hollywood Studios the next morning... -- might need to replan the order of my parks.

Crazy storms cleared out the park about 6pm and rained on and off the rest of the night which gave us flashbacks to our Hakugei rain ride haha.

Mako is legit! What great B&M hyper and imo America's best, but complete with the trim and mcbr that takes the edge off right when you're like 'holy crap are they gonna let this fly'. 

Kraken was a disappointment for me, wow is that thing hideous! 

Infinity Falls was down and we never revisited the Ice Breaker/Falls are again since it's dead.

Manta was fun by why do I have such better memories of Acrobat at Nagashima?!
