Does Universal keep all the haunt lines open until close or do they close any of the ones with long lines early?

From my understanding, open until the clock strikes 1 or 2.

"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

The queues for all of the houses and attractions open during HHN stay open until the official event closing time.

Good to know! And I have another question for the regular HHN visitors. Is the secret entrance near Blue Man Group open during HHN and if so how early does it open and how late does it stay open?

^It is not. The only entrances into the park are the main entrance and a dedicated side entrance for guests with an active resort stay or an annual pass.

Thanks for the info, we are staying at the Royal Pacific so can totally use the resort entrance. I was kinda wondering in case we run over to IOA to see the new Hogwarts Dark Arts show and then want to get back in to HHN quick, but not a big deal.

I think since we have tickets to HHN for Sat and Sun night as well as express pass for both and based on advice here, we are going to take a short hotel break and have a relaxed meal at citywalk on Sat and go back in for HHN about 7:30 or 8 when it's nice and dark and the atmosphere is better. If we really don't get many houses in we can always use the stay and scream the next night.

^The fact that you have Express for both nights of HHN will definitely make your evenings more laid back. Have a fantastic time!

To be fair, there’s nothing uncommon about this. Griffon closes for wasps almost daily this time of year, Dollywood has a well known bee problem and even Nitro briefly closed for bees a few weeks ago before they remembered that they were Six Flags and decided to run the ride anyway because Nitro stops for nothing. :lol:

Boldikus and I blew through the Virginia bee convention on the top of Apollo’s Chariot on Sunday too. Brit and his SO wisely sat that one out.
