P. 606: Velocicoaster Officially Opening June 10!

Recommended Posts

There are new games in the Backroom on HHN.com. They are multiplayer games for Holidays of Horror, The Forsaken & Nightingales (that's the gold, orange & purple cards.) These games seem to show up every night around 6 pm, while the original single player games can be played during the day.

 

After beating both the single player and multiplayer games for a specific haunted house, you can click on the corresponding flashing spot on the house of cards to see an interactive page for that house, just like the ones seen on previous HHN websites, which fleshes out the details of the house's backstory. You must have won BOTH games for a house's interactive page to appear. This seems to be the only way of accessing these pages.

We rode Velocicoaster today! Here's our thoughts on the ride....  

Two weekends ago I made my way back to the Universal Orlando Resort to experience the new Mardi Gras offerings, but also to get a chance to see Velocicoaster testing. I'll have photos from Mardi Gras

It was a fun ride. The first half felt very Maverick-y with the quick transitions between elements. All the theming REALLY adds to the overall feel of being chased by raptors. The 2nd half.....WOW!

Anyone know if they are offering the ticket option this year that allows you a few hours access to Universal Studios park then allows you to stay in the holding area while they change over for the event? I can't remember what it was called but didn't see it listed on the HHN website?

 

 

I think your referring to the stay and scream ticket option

Street construction is well underway. The school bus and all has been placed in the new york area. I'm sure by the time I get home tuesday someone would have posted pictures...

No, that's not it. last year I bought a ticket for like an extra $15 onto the price of the HHN Event ticket that allowed you to enter the Studios park at around 3 or 4 to ride everything that was open until the park closed at 5pm, then after the studios closed we were put into the holding area until they could flush the park and change everything over for the HHN event to start. It was a great value, we got to ride Rockit, Mummy, MIB, Jaws, and Simpsons a couple time before the Studios park closed, then got to hit Legendary Truth and the other sound stage houses between 5:50 and 6:30 before the gates for the event opened at 6:30. It was a great ticket add on, and I'm a little disappointed that it's not offered this year.

Yeah, it was a great ticket option and as far as I can remember it was offered on the Universal website last year, it might have been a Florida resident only option but I would have easily paid for it again this year. If anyone from Universal Orlando's ticket pricing department reads the TPR forums please bring back the early entry ticket option that I cant remember the name of and no one else thinks ever existed haha.

Was it part of a group ticket?

 

I know when we've done events there before there's usually a 4 - 7pm IOA ticket you can add on to a HHN Ticket for a small amount of money. It may have been something like that.

No it wasn't a group ticket but it was exactly like the 4-7 IOA add on but it was for the Studios Park specifically for HHN nights. Regardless it looks like what ever the ticket was it's not offered this year so oh well.

I'll be checking things out on Sunday and post some pictures too. The NY Street area looks pretty awesome. Can't wait to see it in action.

Anyone want to give me some tips on the loose cannon game? Only one I have yet to figure out.

 

I think you just move the sword from side to side to keep the cannon from crashing into the wall and exploding.

 

You have to cut four lines to release the sail, too.

Here are some photos of SZ construction from Sunday the 11th.

The Grown Evil scare zone looks great but I'm going to miss all of the pumpkins that used to be there, that was awesome.

 

The pumkins were there for 3 years, I think that is quite long enough!

 

Besides, they are still in the park just not in Central Park anymore, they are now down in Kid Zone.

Extremely excited for this years HHN one, because I haven't been to a park since last years HHN, also at least at this point in time it seems like it's going to be another great event. Looking forward to a few of the house's: Poe, The Thing, The Forsaken, and the holiday themed house. The pictures of the scarezone construction don't look too bad either. I'm looking forward to the Thing being in a soundstage and if they develop it anything like the Wolfman or Dracula of 2009 it should be great; I also think that the The Thing and Winters Night should be in the same soundstage since they're going to be cold and a similar theme.

 

Anyone think since they're actually going to run HRRR this year and since Rocky Horror's gone they'll put some music from it on the ride, in addition to Halloween/spooky music? Just a speculation.

 

Going October 1st, a Saturday, not my choice. Hope its not too crowded, going to buy an express pass, going to be expensive but I've bought one the last 3 years and it's really been a help; especially on Saturdays. Anyways, a PTR and review of most or all of the mazes, scarezones, etc. should follow.

See, I think the HHN Orlando houses ALWAYS look awesome, I just wish they had the meat and scares in them that they used to. I feel that they've spent too much time/effort/money on set design and story, and not enough on 'does the house really work?'

 

Kind of know what I mean? Not trying to be negative, this is the premier halloween event on Earth, just want to keep seeing it improve.

I definitely agree. I've only been going since HHN 14, but the houses seem to lack the "intensity" and "out-of-control" feeling that they used to have. Now, most of the houses are just eerie and not actually scary. Having said that, I still love this event and am very eager to see what this year can offer.
