THE 1HAPPY HAUNT

For a park that constantly replaces timeless properties for something more hip and new, why does Universal still have the outdated Grinchmas, based off the Ron Howard picture? That movie wasn’t good when it came out and it’s still not good now. Do they really have nothing better to replace it with or is it an actually really good event?
God I did not like that movie at all. It was awful

For what it's worth... and take this with a grain of salt... someone I know that does finance for Universal said that the Grinchmas event doesn't even boost attendance... it's just that the marketing department loves it.

Really, though, their holiday campaign should really focus around Harry Potter now.

Their Grinchmas is kind of like three Grinch movies behind.

Kind of strange mix don't you think?

Stranger Things
Ghostbusters
Holidays in Hell
US
House of 1000 corpses
Frankenstein meets wolfman
Killer Klowns
Creepshow
Pandora's Box

That can prob be attributed to WB getting stingy with their properties & and a certain rat buying Fox. They have to get creative with what IPs they license now.

I am SO GLAD it's a tracked ride instead of the rumored centrifuge! Can't wait to hear more about the ride system!

Just booked a plane ticket to do an extended weekend of Halloween in the area! I'm excited to do HHN for the first time. What should I know going in? I'm planning on getting the 1-time express entry that lets you in at 2 PM.

Will seeing the movies the haunts are based on add to my enjoyment of the mazes, or would it be better to go in blind?

Nice thing about the 2pm pass is the mazes open at 5pm so you get time to do the Tram or Harry Potter. The general public gets in at 7pm. Head down to the lower lot and do the mazes down there. You should be about to get them done multiple times within two hours. Then head back up and spend the rest of the night up there. You might get done by 10pm.
