Halloween Horror Nights?

Friday, October 17, 2003 3:13 PM
I havent seen any trip reports on it yet and was wondering how it was this year? Last year I went and had a great time. Also does anyone know what the crowds are like on the weekdays, specifically a Wednesday night. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I was there last night Thursday the 16th of Oct. and it was quite busy. I have always went on a Sat. but due to crowds plus a money savings decided to go during the week I was suprised as it was almost as crowded as on Saturdays in past years. The park was sold out for the night and due to the number of guests they went from midnight closing untill 2 am. Only got to 3 of the houses due to the lines but got a lap on all 3 coasters and spidey. The bill and teds show was pretty good as well. I recomend getting the express pass they were selling for 15 bucks it gets you to the front of the line and in hindsight would have been well worth it if nothing more than to get to go through the other houses as well as getting a few more rides in. Hope the info helps by the way if you go to burger king and get a cupon it is only 29.99 through the week.

Thanks for the tips. We got our tickets with a discounted coke can, FL resident, but when do you buy the express pass? At the ticket booth? Is it first come first serve? Also is it 15 per person? Even if it is I think its well worth it.

I was there last Sunday (the 12th) and all I can say is definitely get the Horror Express ticket book. It was pretty packed for a Sunday (thought it was the night before Columbus Day), with line for the Haunted Houses at between 1 1/2 to 2 hours. With the express tickets, we were able to hit all of houses (some more than once) plus several of the attractions over about 5 hours. Without the tickets, we wouldn't have been able to get a fraction done of what we did. As a matter of fact, the only reason we went down this year was because they were offering the passes, as we had such a terrible time with the lines last year. I assume that they would sell the booklets out front before the event. We bought ours for that Sunday during the day before (a Saturday) at guest services and they were all ready sold out of them for that Sat. night. One of the smart things we did do this year was after the park closed for the day, we stayed inside the park (they hold you over at the Oak) and then got a jump start on the event as soon as they let you go. A bonus was that they opened up the Dueling Dragons at 6:20 and we were able to get in 6 front row rides before the event even started. The booklets come with 15 tickets. One for each of the houses plus one for pretty much all of the attractions in the park and one for the first showing of the Bill & Ted show. As for the haunted houses, we thought that the All Nite Drive In, Ship of Screams, and Scream House revisted were probably the best and that if we had had to wait in the lines, they would have probably been the most worth it. This was our second year down there for the event and we have definitely found out that because of the crowds, you really have to put a little foresight into your planning in order to get the most out of your night. Hope that helps.

If you stay in the hotels, does your room key still work as a fastpass during halloween horror nights and regular operating hours? Thanks
