I did my first Horror Nights last night . It was good. We headed straight to Stranger Things, I have never seen but my friend is obsessed . It was pretty good and had some good scary moments . The we did the houses at the back end of the park and just soaked up the atmosphere .
My highlight was meeting Zombie Boy George, tho the photo I got was quite blurred still was so funny. I really enjoyed the Vamp 1985 NYE show.

Overall thoughts on Universal, probably like many others , too many “wear glasses and have a drop of water thrown at you” rides . I’m also over Rip Ride Rockit. I used to quite like it and always choose Beastie Boys or NoDoubt as my soundtrack. However it was rough as anything. It’s also pretty ugly i realised . But hey just my thoughts.
The Mummy remains a fun ride too. And got plenty of re rides

I will forever be upset they didnt move Dragon Challenge to Springfield, paint it green and have it themed to Kodos and Kang. But a guy can dream.
Jimmy Fallon ride was a waste of time . Overall had a great day.

Can't wait to check out Universal for the first time this weekend! I'll save HHN for another time as it looks like going on a Sunday evening would still be crazy per the picture above. They days are going to be long as is with 7am-8pm park hours and then all of the bars and restaurants to take in! Not to mention the surrounding places like Fun Spot, Disney Springs, etc. around the corner for evening fun.

After finally getting the last of the houses in for the first time, I can definitely say that this is one of my favorite years in recent memory for Halloween Horror Nights house-wise. I think my rankings for the year are as follows:

    1. Poltergeist
    2. Carnival Graveyard
    3. Trick r Treat
    4. Scary Tales
    5. Stranger Things
    6. Seeds of Extinction
    7. Slaughter Sinema
    8. Blumhouse
    9. Dead Exposure
    10. Halloween 4

Yep, avoid waiting in that mess outside the gate at all costs... Stay and Scream.

Avoid that crowd and get early entry. We often the past few years always knock out 4 or 5 houses with minimal or no wait before the crowds roll in. Do it right, you won't require express at all. Or knock 5-6 houses out and then use express when it gets busy!

Will be there Halloween Night this year and a few nights after, can't wait!

^We were able to get Stranger Things (a whopping 10 minute wait, mostly consisting of walking through the giant queue), Poltergeist and Scary Tales done before the park officially opened to regular guests last Saturday thanks to Stay and Scream. And when we were done with those, we were already positioned inside of the park to start hitting the other houses while the lines were short. Especially on the weekend nights, Stay and Scream is definitely the way to go.
