However with the Levithan/Behemoth Thing, I'll buy Anything now.


Because flying ace isn't marketed as a serious thrill ride whereas a windseeker is....using your logic they never should've installed flying ace because they already have a wave swinger not too far away from it's present location.



why'd they build i305? i mean, they already have taxi jam.

So it looks like all the major CF parks are going to have Windseekers. I'm happy with that. I'll be heading to KD for 2012 so if they have it it will be my 1st one.

It's looking that way what with the removal of el borado.

The HALLOWEEN HAUNT XI website is now up! :devil:

http://haunt.kingsdominion.com/

Mazes:
CornStalkers (NEW)
Blue Ridge Bloodbath
Camp Killauee
The Asylum
Toxic Plague
Club Blood
Slaughter House
Medieval Macabre
The Doll Factory
Outbreak: The Evolution (NEW)

Scarezones:
Necropolis (NEW)
IronWorX (NEW)
The Lair (NEW
CarnEvil
Feary Tales
The Ruins

Shows:
Overlord's Resurrection
Uprising (NEW)
Elvira's Superstition
The Night Shift (NEW)
Blood Drums (NEW)[

I'm a bit suprised to see that IronWorX will be on Center Walkway and Necropolis will be in Old Virginia. I would have thought it would have been the other way around. The Lair's location (in the arbor) just seems like they are going to have lots of "vampire" scareactors in there compared to just a few random scareactors that should be in Central Stalkway in years past. They did come up with a good theme and name for the arbor, as there isn't a scarezone based on vampires and "lair" just makes sense to be inside (the arbor).

I'm glad to see that Alien Outpost got the boot and can't wait for Outbreak: The Evolution. They picked a great replacement theme for inside of FOF as it goes with the "disaster on earth" feel of FOF's queue! I'm also glad to see that the location of the former Maze of Madness is back for Cornstalkers as that side of International Street always was dead at Haunt last year.

I'm glad to see we got all new shows this year... Freak Show Deluxe was getting old, Disturbia was great but I feel the theme of Uprising fits the "feeling" of International Street more (with the Overlord's Resurrection at the opposite side of the fountains). Blood Drums won't fit the theme of CarnEvil as much, but will definitely go better with its neighbor Slaughter House (another good decision by KD). Even though many of us liked Fangs, I'm glad its gone as the GP didn't like it much. The Night Shift sounds like it will be pretty good and it will definitely go good with the scarezone Necropolis right outside the theater.

To sum it up, Haunt XI seems like it is going to be GREAT (better than last year actually)... I think both the new mazes will be great (finally Outpost is gone) along with the new scarezones (I can't wait for IronWorX)! The only thing that I would have done differently is put IronWorX in Old VA and Necropolis in Center Walkway, but this will definitely mix it up! I'm okay with the locations though as Necropolis will go with The Night Shift show. I'm also glad to see that they are using the brand new awesome HAUNT XI logo all over the place! I CAN'T WAIT!

Pretty excited for Haunt. I think the only house I'm not excited to see return is Medival Macabre. I didn't find it too good. Actually, I found it terrible. The usher let WAY too many people in, the lighting was bright and gave away any potential scares. I think the maze has potential, but overall was horribly done last year.

Either way I'm really happy to see Asylum return, and REALLY excited for Cornstalkers. Heck, I don't think there's any maze I'm not excited for. The shows sound cool, except for Uprising, which sounds fun, just not my kind of show ;).

Also excited for the Scare Zones. Happy to see Feary Tales, and looking foward to Ironworx!

Looks like a great year for Haunt!

Damn, I hate when I can't sneak around the Scare Zones without running into everything. Looks like I'll have to brave them (or invest in a rape whistle...) to get around!

Rape whistle? Why would you want to attract rapists?

^No no no, it's to call off the scary people coming after me. Don't they give those out to children at theme parks during Halloween events? Obviously not legitimate rape whistles, but they serve the purpose.

I'm very excited for KD's halloween stuff. I went there last year (for the first time) and thought the haunted houses were WAY better (scarier) than Busch Gardens. My favorite was the slaughter house one.

I can't believe they are still doing Elvira's Superstition... that thing is so old and not fun.
