Just got back from a long day at HOS. Breakdown is as followed:
Howl-O-Scream was awesome. While the park was not as decorated as SFA, it had some pretty neat decorations. Anyways, this is the breakdown of what we did today:
FrankenRock: 3/5. It was a fun show, but the audio quality was lacking a bit. They need to turn up the mics, or soften the insturments, or something. It was good, just not great.
Monster Stomp Revamped: 5/5. Good, funny, overall fun. Very good show.
Onto the mazes:
Catacombs: 5/5. Did this twice, both times were VERY frightening. It's a great maze with some awesome scares. To add to this is the fact it is beyond impossible to see the proper pathway in this maze. This was hands down the second best maze of the day and a must do at HOS. The only complaint is, it wasn't very long
Bitten: 5/5. HAND DOWN THE BEST MAZE! This maze was simply horrifying. I was screaming around every corner. The constant screams, loud noises, and even the more subtle scares who aren't, are still terrfying. This maze was long, scary, and really good. The best maze at HOS, but also the most crowded.
Revenge of Pompeii: 4/5. To start with the bad, the scares are few and far between. However, the scares are REALLY good. All the actors blend right in with the surrondings, and this provided for some awesome scares! It was just about the right length, and overall a pretty good maze.
Hunted: 3/5. This maze was fairly weak. There were a few good scares, but overall this might be one that's skippable. Honestly it's just lacking something. It's short, it's not as scary as the other three indoor mazes, and it's just in my opinion, the let down of this years event.
Harvest Hollow: 2/5. You have to exit Hunted through this area. One or two decent scares, but overall it's just a longer walk back to the main path.
Cursed: 1/5. This was terrible. No good scares. Oh wait, my bad. I was pretty horrifyed at thought of blinding myself in thouse god awful strobe lights. Not even worth the time.
