Here we are another year of Howl-O-Scream in the books. 2016 brought along a new house Circo Sinistro, a new Terror-tory (scarezone?) Sideshow Square, and upcharge Escape Rooms in Germany.

With the aging Bitten and Catacombs from 2009 still part of the line up will they finally be replaced? With a different take on how Terror-tories are done as seen in Sideshow Square being more reminiscent of a scare zone should we expect the future Terror-tories to be similar? Also, due to a change in management across the park how will HOS adapt to this change?

I think that sums this up, oh and the Nightmare Express along with Jack are clearly returning.

Are you just speculating or do you have actual evidence to support this? From what I've understood the Nightmare Express was a hit or miss attraction that took away from a part of the park's transportation system and with how the parks have been switching event Icons in recent years I doubt that Jack is returning.

Oh no I personally doubt it's returning I just feel that it's kind of brought up every year and turned into a joke. I could see them return some time in the future maybe for the 20th, but not for 2017. Then again I don't know what the parks planning for next year. Hopefully that cleared things up.

Back on track for 2017, I wonder if Wendigo Woods will leave the line-up due to InvadR? Re-theming the towers to a fort and just adding some viking styled props could easily turn the area into a Terror-tory to better reflect InvadR.

I think a Nordic themed terror-tory would be awesome. There are some pretty gnarly creatures in Scandinavian mythology like trolls and frost giants and Loki and such.

Werewolves and the Draugr are my personal favorites.

If they changed the terrortory and added draugrs that would be pretty awesome

That could be something interesting. Keeping in mind that they also work on Christmas Town, was there anything that made you think it was Howl-O-Scream related? Could they have just been working with lighting cables?

Edit: I just saw your similar post in the Christmas Town thread. I doubt this is Howl-O-Scream related.

I replied back in that thread to avoid confusion.

I think that utilizing pressed budget money to re-theme one of the best Terror-tories they have, Wendigo Woods, simply on the account of their new coaster, would be a mistake.

There's many other areas of improvement for the event that I would rather see than an updated New France zone. Sideshow Square could really use some more love, and I think its about time Demon Street and Catacombs rest in pieces.

The parks website states that HOS will run from Sept 23 - Oct 29 and that it will stay open until midnight and expand to select Thursdays. This is good news. Now lets see what new things they do in the park this year to hopefully keep on improving it.

Thursdays are very interesting. I'm hoping it will help with the crowds.

I hope they mean September 22, the 23rd is a Saturday Frowning I always take a half day from work on Friday for opening day. I don't know why, but a Saturday opening day is bothering me...

Sounds like they are recognizing potential and we could see some great new things that we haven't seen in years at Howl-O-Scream.
