Oh yeah, I forgot! Last night I went to HOS for the second time this season. A few thoughts;
-The place was absolutely SLAMMED. Nothing like I've EVER seen on a Sunday night. 30+ wait for everything except Kumba (the mystery continues).
-SheiKra really shines at night. The view of downtown you get at the top is spectacular, and back row or don't go. Always.
-Favorite house of the night was Unearthed, by far. Surprisingly lengthy, themeing all over the place, and I got the sh*t scared outta me by that f*cking dog animatronic.
-Scorpion was open during the event?!?!
-Zombie Countainment Unit... never again. Decided to bite it and wait in the hour line (which is one hour longer than it should be) and the entire house is just ... lame. Like 25% of the targets actually lit up, it wasn't scary at all (just a guy in makeup going "RAR" and like 10 people pressing the trigger at him), and the strobe lights were awful. Also, WTF was that dubstep. My brain still hurts.
We went on Sunday as well. It was pretty crowded (for Howl-o-Scream) but not as bad as I thought it would be.
We loved the Black Spot and I really liked Motel Hell more than I probably should have . I got a few jump scares and was laughing throughout. The Zombie Containment Maze is a good concept, but I think they need to work on the execution a bit. We all enjoyed it, but it seems like there is still a bunch of potential being missed.
Kumba was epic as always (and not rough.) Cheetah Hunt seems to get more fun each time I ride it. It is such a great ride and an awesome fit for the park. Rode Cobra's Curse for the first time - enjoyed it MUCH MUCH MUCH more than I thought I would. Awesome ride. Montu was amazing as usual Shiekra was awesome as well.

Yeah, I love the idea of zombie laser tag (and those three words alone sound like the best thing ever), but low capacity + very sub par scare actors + half the targets not even lighting up = a hot mess compared to the other haunts. I can respect it, but I really want to see an improved version next year.
I did the Zombie shooter thing at BGT I believe its introductory year and thought it was terrible / the worst maze the park has ever done... then we did the shooter at Scary Farm a few weeks ago and it was 1,000x better. I thought there would be no real good way to execute it, honestly, but Scary Farm proved me wrong. It wasn't perfect, but it was VERY well done by comparison.
Why? A ton more actors (especially for the finale, that was crazy), better scoring system, everyone had sensors that I could see, and the actors did an amazing job of pacing everyone and keeping things interesting... plus they threw in some scares which we got 0 of at BGT.
Got to the park and immediately “walked” to cheetah hunt, and then had to wait for that section to open up. After the area opened up and I got to cheetah hunt there was barely a line, mostly because of the off season, the threat of rain and the fact that it’s a Monday. Cheetah hunt 9/10 The launch was fun, it had some good airtime in parts and the s-curve segment did it better than skyrocket. Cons: it had a slight rattle that was mostly annoying but was far from rough.
After that my family and I went straight for cobras curse since it’s right around the corner. Cobras curse 7/10 The theming was amazing. Not Disney or Universal level, (to be honest, what is? Correct answer: Disney and Universal) but it was good theming and a fun ride. But since it is a family coaster it’s not as good as some of the others.
Next: Montu, the invert that almost everyone loves. Montu 6/10 It made my ears hurt and it was just a little rough, but it was still a great ride. The inversions were fun and it was pretty forceful. (correction: it probably hurt because I was wearing sunglasses and when my head hit the restraints the temple of the glasses hurt my ears)
Falcons fury 7/10 Yeah it was awesome.
scorpion 3/10 I don’t like it it was boring, rough, and, well, yeah that’s it. Sand Serpent 2/10 I don’t like wild mice.
kunba 6/10 pretty much the same pros and cons as Montu.
I feel like I am one of the few people who like dive coasters. Sheikra 8/10
Amazing park and a great day! if you did not get your unpopular opinion or are not satisfied with it please let the nearest person who cares know, thank you.
