Everland does something similar with T Express. They also turn one of the safari bus rides into a zombie attraction at night where the buses drive through zombie filled areas after the animals have been moved out. Always thought that could have been a thing if Rhino Rally had been still around.

This years event looks great. I love Halloscream and honestly have always preferred it to Horror Nights. Awesome night rides on great coasters, really cool atmosphere since the park itself is dark and densely landscaped, and great houses. It always felt like the scareactors at HOS put more effort into it and have more fun than the one at HHN do to.

We just got back from the event and it was tremendous as always. We had an absolute blast.

I'll have a trip report coming up soon but I just wanted to say that whoever decided to put a "Choose Thy Fate" sign between the twin Vortex tunnels in Deathwater Bayou as a jab at Dueling Dragons is awesome. :lol:

I've gone pantless!

I think BGT often gives Universal a run for its money with Howl-o-Scream. They're not as dependent on IPs and have to be a bit more creative.

Howl O' Scream always looks and sounds so awesome. I can't wait until I can visit someday.
