Video is now uploaded to CoasterTube so you shouldn't have a problem viewing it now.

 

Great stuff, guys!

 

Hey thanks for uploading it.

 

 

Great video with the scream cam. It looks like a great house. I'm very excited for HOS since it will be my first one. Sounds and looks like I'm going for a great year. I will try to post a review this weekend after I go Friday night.

^^Well that is unacceptable. As an enthusiasts and a moderator of TPR you should be required to attend every Halloween event in the country, at every park, every year and the events in Orlando at least twice each .

 

Just kidding, I get what you are saying and for someone who only makes it to town for October every couple of years the rotating houses do work out really well. I also think HOS is a much better value than HHN these days. I mean for around $100 on any night you can get admission, preferred parking, guided tour, and front of the line access to the houses and coasters. For the same type of experience at HHN on peak nights you might be pushing $200 a person.

I have never been to the Tampa HOS, I have never missed a Williamsburg one. This will be the first year I am going to do both and I am looking forward to the different ways the parks present their Halloween events.

 

The only thing I have to lose, is a little of my mind.

Renee, you did better than I did! I got the the body hanging in the middle of the path and I just totally freaked out and froze. I thought if I moved close it would set off a trigger to make it twitch and I would have completely lost it. They had to come rescue me because my feet refused to move forward at that point. Steve did tell me I wasn't the first person they've had to come get, so that helped me feel a little better about my freak out. If I hadn't been by myself I probably would have been fine (last year at Busch Gardens Bash, I had Shirley, Chad, Joe, Stephen & the other Joe to help me keep cool - though they were laughing at how much I screamed). I'm just not good with this stuff all by my lonesome.

 

I love they gave us all Tricker's key with our videos! I was showing it off to everyone at work yesterday.

Went to HOS last night for the first time. It was great. We had front of line passes that worked great since towards the end of the night we were running out of time but with the passes finished everything. I think my favorite houses were nevermore and circus of superstition 3D. It was the first house I've done where the 3d actually looked really good. Blood asylum seemed short and they build up an ending that wasnt much. Fiends was very funny. It's in a weird theater and they even mention they moved the show. But it's still a great show. The hoardes going around the park I thought worked very well. Seriously even with it being the first night and some rain, I can't stress how much the front of the line passes worked for us. I mean we got to ride again on the coasters because they wouldn't punch our card sometimes. And I don't see how else we could of done all the houses. It was a great night and a fantastic first time for us at HOS. Sorry no pictures, I'm on my iPhone typing this.

I loved Nevermore last year. One of the few houses that focused on creative scares over a ton of gore. I love a good scare but not good at handling gore.

 

Some friends and I are working on planning an outing to HOS next month. Has anyone here done Fright Feast this year? Is the taco bar back? I loved that thing last year.

OMG Renee! That video was hilarious! Just so everyone knows, Renee is a screamer. She was not embellishing at all!

 

So funny!

 

It's true... And the part that freaked me out the most was when they said "the creature" was right behind me. When, in reality, there was no one there. Yet I swear I saw a shadow following me and stuff like that is what gets me!

I would suggest either the Dinner Show or the front of the line pass. The first is $26 and you get first access to the houses before the rest of the people who didn't get the dinner come in, but after that, you're stuck in the lines. The quick queue is $35, and it lasts all night. Either way, try to do as many houses first when the lines are short. Then try the rides later in the evening. Sheikra and Cheetah Hunt will be long all night, but Montu and Kumba should be walk ons. Enjoy!
