Speaking of which, can't say I am interested in Purge - again, as a theme for a scare zone. Mostly because I find the movies scare free. However, with Walking Dead, Krampus, Texas, Freddy Vs. Jason, Michael Myers, and Exorcist, it is an incredible line-up.


It hasn't been confirmed by the park that the Wizarding World will be open for HHN.

My, that would be quite evil to close a huge section of the park to save money on labor/ops. One year I went to HHN, and they closed Fast & Furious the extension of the tram ride (despite our tram driving right past the entrance of it), for the first weekend of HHN. Purely a money saver maneuver. I would not go to HHN without FJ being open.

Diagon Alley in Orlando was not open for HHN in 2014, so who knows.

It's available any time of the year, why would you invest your time at FJ instead of trying to hit all the mazes?

BTW, speaking of HHN...

The full website is now live and tickets are on sale! Only thing left to reveal is the theme of the Terror Tram.

http://www.halloweenhorrornights.com/hollywood/2016/

Day/Night tickets that allow entry into the park at 2PM are available for as low as $89

Says right on the website:
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, Studio Tour and other
select attractions will not be open during the event.

To experience all our daytime attractions, check out our Day/Night Combo Ticket

So no go for Potter during HHN. It looks like they are using the Potter incentive to sell the day/night combo though. It's kind of unfortunate that they are limiting the Day/Night to a 2PM arrival as you only get 4 hours in the park before they kick you out to set up for HHN and then you have to reenter at 7...

Oh well, maybe I'll do the Day/Night combo anyway since I want to see Potter, they have sucked me in. ;)

A normal day ops ticket is priced at $99 or $105 online right now, so the $89 day/night combo if you wanted to see Potter is a great deal.

I think there is a holding area so you're not kicked out. I remember they have early entry and I have used it several times.

Last year, they used wristbands to indicate the early entry, so the park never officially closed at all. I can imagine similar for this.

Imo, that Day/Night combo pass is a pretty good deal. If you go on Thursday, Friday, or Sunday, the park will be pretty slow during the day and you'll still be able to do pretty much everything worth doing. Also, I imagine that the process for re-entering will be much quicker than for those showing up just for HHN.
