Halloween Horror Nights is easily one of the most popular and largest Haunted Events to take place at a theme park. In the past HHN has been known for being crazy with their theme's, pushing the boundary of what's acceptable and going one step beyond that line. While this season Halloween Horror Nights doesn't exactly have a set theme or icon, they've gone just as crazy as they have in the past. It seems this season has gone with a television/movie theme with most of the haunted houses and scare-zones.
This season the only attractions open are the roller coaster Rip, Ride and Rockit, Revenge of the Mummy, Men in Black, Simpsons the Ride, Kang and Kodos Twirl and Hurl, Despicable Me and Transformers.

This season all of the ScareZones, the themed areas around the park normally on the pathways are all themed to the Walking Dead. You'll travel through the various locations seen on the television show such as 'The Fall of Atlanta', 'The Farm', 'Woodlands', 'Survivor's Camp' and 'The Clear'.
Now while I enjoy walking dead, I'm not to pleased with them taking over ALL of the ScareZones. Part of the fun of Halloween Horror Nights has always been when they theme out the ScareZones to fit with the different houses they're offering that season. So not only did you get a themed haunted house, you also got to walk through at area with a very similar feel. I'm reserving judgement until we visit but I'm not sure I'm going to enjoy the ScareZones as much as previous seasons.
Back again, the always great 'Bill and Teds EXCELLENT Halloween Adventure'. This show changes each season, targeting whatever is popular or can be made hysterically funny that season. I've been going to HHN for years now and this show is never a disappointment, some are better then others but it's never dull. I can't wait to see what kind of cracks their going to make this season!
It's time for the TIME WARP!
