Heard that some have been casted for Death Water Bayou, the facade is still up also so that'll be coming back. Unless they use a new location this year (doubtful) then the only reasonable location for a new house could be in the Akbar building since The Fallen, the witch house, and The Residence seem to be coming back

I think the only change were the werewolves suit themselves, the house didn’t change much

It was literally the same house with a few werewolves

I'm all for advancing the storyline and all....but at this point I know where every boo-hole is
Sea World San Diego will gladly take this Blood Moon werewolf version off your claws

.....but you need to take back the redneck barn :chainsaw:

I have a question: I will be visiting BGT HoS for the first time ever on Sep 24th! Really stoked! I was really considering getting an express pass for the event until I saw the price for it was almost twice as much as a single night's ticket. I understand it's a Saturday night, but bear in mind, I will be visiting the park during the day to get the rides in as I am a Platinum Pass holder. How essential would it be to get an Express for Saturday the 24th? Can I get all of the houses done in one night with strategic planning? Is there a stay-and-scream system similar to HHN's? Also note that while I usually like to do the houses multiple times to soak in the scares and detail for HHN, I see this as a one-and-done experience with the houses so I'm cool with doing the houses just once.

Usually around 5 they’ll have wristband stations where you get wristbands signaling that you’re there for HOS, you’re allowed to continue to roam the park until the event starts. The rides might be open but I don’t remember honestly. Also, if you start at one of the 2 front houses being the Witch of the Woods or Death Water, then work your way to the back houses, you could finish them all in the first 90 minutes before the crowds show up

We went on Sept. 22nd last year, which was a Friday, and were able to get through all the houses and see Fiends with no problem. Even had time to do a couple of the rides and repeat runs of Death Water Bayou and Witch of the Woods. I think the longest we waited was about 20 minutes for Cell Block Zombies.

Back when I worked at Busch Gardens, September was usually a slow period, even on weekends. Just like HHN, things don't really start getting crazy until early to mid-October.

Missed HOS last year and regretted not going because I heard how boss Witch Of the Woods was. Just bring back Demented Dimensions from there sister park now, that house was underrated as hell.
