I was more interested in the fact that they were going to be recycling the body wars simulators than the budget. :P

Definitely. They are very protective over their numbers. I just really hope it's not just a Star Tours 3.0.

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/10/take-the-scream-no-more-challenge-at-hong-kong-disneyland/

As much as I love celebrating Halloween at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park, I do love to see how our other parks – especially our international ones – celebrate this time of year.

This fall, Hong Kong Disneyland launched a new Halloween offering as a part of their Disney’s Haunted Halloween celebration. It’s called the “Scream-No-More Challenge” and allows guests to explore the seven lands at the park, stopping at attractions and scare checkpoints that test their ability to hold back screams. Checkpoints include a new Sideshow Carnival Extraordinaire, Grizzly Gulch Halloween Fair, Tomorrowland Party Zone, and more. (Some guests may even scream with delight when they see Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and friends dressed up in Halloween attire!).

The offering will run Thursdays-Sundays through October 31, at the park. Be sure to check out the photo gallery above for more.

I's like to check out HDK's Halloween event someday. Looks more intense than what they do at other Disney parks.

Wow, that really does look intense! I get why they don't do more of an adult themed event at their American Parks but this looks awesome!

A real haunt at a Disney park? Looks amazing. Wish they would do it in the States too (the Studios at WDW and DCA at DLR could be the scary park, while the others do the friendly events).

^I think there was a rumor that Disney was planning some sort of "adult" Halloween event for the Studios park a few years ago, but not much came of it. Most of the tram ride and city streets are just "wasted space," anyway, and would be ideal for some sort of haunt.
