As a former HHN employee I set higher expectations for haunts than the average guest, but especially for HHN. I expect the Scareactors to be well trained and on point. This year I was not disappointed. I attended opening night with my husband. We did early entry (it’s free, just arrive early and head downstairs to the lower lot). The queue lines opening night were not as bad as they have been in the past. They also have screens playing movie clips, DJ playing music and (kinda lame) Boo Crew that entertain while you wait.
All of the mazes were good. I especially liked This Is the End. They did a wonderful job of creating a beautiful maze, complete with humor and boo scares. I was not a huge fan of the Walking Dead maze, but I haven’t kept up on the show so that may have something to do with it. My favorite scarezone was the Krampus area upstairs. Basically Universal did what Universal always does…create beautiful, professional mazes with well trained Scareactors.
