Every year Halloween Horror Nights seems to get bigger and bigger, and so do the crowds.
Below you will find some of our tips for making the most out of your Halloween Horror Nights experience.
Some do's and don'ts and most importantly, what should be your "plan of attack" for the night.
You can also check out the HHN site for more information on tickets, hours, etc.
Update: Per @HorrorNights on Twitter, the two mazes open for Early Entry will be Insidious and The Walking Dead. To reflect this, we've modified our Maze Order Below.
Lower Lot Mazes:
Most people assume that you should head to the Terror Tram first. And if you don't show up when the event starts then this is probably your best bet. But if you have followed the instructions above and are at the event at opening or for Early Entry, first thing you should do is head down to the Lower Lot and go through Insidious and The Walking Dead during the Early Entry period. And then right at 7:00 do This is The End.
Update: The Early Entry is for Insidious and The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead was the most popular maze the entire night for opening weekend. DO THE WALKING DEAD FIRST DURING EARLY ENTRY!!!
Front of the Line tip: If the lines are not long (if you are there for Early Entry DO NOT use your Front of the Line Pass then), go through once with the General Public and then use your FOTL pass later in the evening. Getting back down to the lower lot mazes is easy to do later in the night.
If you don't have a Front of the Line Pass, don't be tempted by "Jurassic Park: In The Dark". It's just "Jurassic Park: At Night". But if it's hot and there isn't a line, by all means go for it.
Metro Set Mazes:
Once you have completed the Lower Lot mazes head over near Transformers to take the tram down to the Metro Sets and do Crimson Peak and Alien vs Predator.
Front of the Line tip: If lines are still short when you get to the Metro Sets go through once with the GP and use your FOTL pass later in the evening when it's busier. If you don't want to take the tram back to the Metro sets later in the night, go through them once with the GP and then use your FOTL privilege right after to get two trips through each maze.
Update: Last week we had listed the Terror Tram as next up on the "to-do" list. Halloween, being the only maze on the upper lot has varying wait times through the night, from 15-20 minutes to 2 hours. So when you come back up top check the wait times. It's entirely possible you can see this amazing maze with a very minimal wait.
The Terror Tram was consistently around 30-45 minutes on opening night and that line moves VERY quickly.
You are probably going to need to rest by now, feel free to stop by Springfield or Gru's and get a snack, a meal, etc. Sit around Corpz or Dark Christmas and watch the talent in action.
Once you have completed all the mazes you can hang around the scare zones and watch the talent, check the wait board to see if there are any short maze or ride lines or if you have a Front of the Line Pass use up any trips you haven't already.
Do some shopping, grab a t-shirt, hang out in the scare zones and drive home safely.
If you are a fan of Scary events and are planning on doing Fright Fest at Six Flags Magic Mountain this year, be sure to check out the info for our event on October 2. It's a full day of fun with Exclusive Ride Time on Twisted Colossus and Scream in the morning, tours of a couple of the mazes, dinner and front of the line passes for all of the Fright Fest Mazes.
We hope to see you there.
