Yep. It's not returning.

There's some speculation on Screamscape about the maze themes, aside from the announced Thing maze, they speculate that there will be a Poe Maze, Spooky Cemetery, WW1 Hospital. Holiday Horror, Saws and Steam, Runes, and a Spanish Ghost Ship.


This is pretty accurate. Also, one of the houses is 3-D.

I personally enjoyed last year's offerings, despite the inclusion of stale past characters, but I think this year has more potential. It's all about execution at this point.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^I guess my comparison point was HHN Hollywood where they are so agressive, and the mazes there really emphasise the scares and have big endings. The mazes in Orlando seemed to just peter out by comparison, but I guess they were going more for spooky rather than terror. To their credit the set designs were amazing in Orlando, especially Legendary Truth, Shadybrook and Hades.

I'm bummed I missed the Frankenstein, Dracula, and Wolfman mazes in 2009, they sounded awesome.

I've gone pantless!

2. Nevermore: The Madness of Poe - The madness of Edgar Allen Poe's greatest works has come to life, taking you deeper and deeper towards the brink of insanity.

3. The Inbetween - An ominous portal reveals another dimension where all is not what it seems; a realm where our world and another collide. Watch out, your eyes will deceive you.

4. Winter's Night: The Haunting of Hawthorn Cemetery - As snow falls on this normally serene gothic cemetery, the deceased souls that occupy its confines come out to prey.

5. The Forsaken - Four ships began Columbus' fateful voyage. Yet, only three ships became legend. What befell the mutinous 4th crew? They were condemned to a watery grave.

6. Nightingales: Blood Prey - Within every war, the Nightingales have appeared. Able to transform themselves to fit any setting, these savage banshees feed on the weak and the helpless.
