Other areas under utilized for terrortories :
Germany bridge before “the castle made famous by darkastle. (Bring back werewolf’s)
The mini tree forest and bridge right before or after escape from Pompeii and festa bridge (creatures of the night ? -animals  
Scotland - (scarecrow guys/ravens)

They've had scare zones in all three of these areas over the years to varying levels of success

Ok, it is currently rumored that Unearthed will be removed because of a contract ending plus Parts of a Unknown maze are currently being trashed. So this means Two New Mazes, and a New Terrortory is also Rumored. The Haunted Train has also been rumored because it it HOS's 20th Anniversary next year. I believe this is true because of the source I'm receiving it from

Catacombs is beings trashed. The train will never return for so many reasons. And I doubt there being a contract for Unearthed, mainly because it was built for the park, not rented or taken from already existing IP.

Do you know where your source got the information? I ask because those rumors look like a summary of the theories being floated on this Forum. We know in the past BGW employees have gotten their insights from us. That information can easily spread around the park, obfuscating the reality that PFN was the ultimate source.

Imagine this if you will.

Deep under the streets of France lie a maze of passages. It is said that if you go through those passages for long enough, you will find yourself in an underground villiage populated with witches. These witches have many different powers, but their main power is the power to reanimate the deceased. These witches have been waiting for decades for new pray. Will you fall victim to the witches' grasp in Catacombs: Unearthed?

Basicly, take unearthed and catacombs and boom! You have a brand new maze. This would either go where unearthed is now, (the enterance to the catacombs under France are on the outskirts of a forest) or could be put where catacombs are (but not have as much space. If the enterance is where unearthed is now, we could have a witch-themed scarezone in the wild reserve.

Christmas is starting now!

Assuming the sites for Lumberhack, Unearthed, and possibly even Circo Sinistro could become unusable due to new ride construction it seems a bit odd to remove Catacombs as well despite its age. It seems likely that they would replace it with something new. At the same time is seems unlikely that they would spend a lot of money on Howl O Scream with declining profits and two new rides.

Could they use also use the stage to have two haunted attractions in the Royal Palace Theater? Or do they really need to keep that available for fall group events? All of the Halloween shows have been around for a while. I would be in favor of a new show utilizing the theater instead. That might be tough to pull off between the summer and Christmas shows also using the space.

Perhaps there is space in and near the black forest picnic area which could be used for something new.

The stage is in the process of striking the set for All for One, and building the set and ice rink for Christmas. That work is all being done during Howl-O-Scream. There's no way they could use the stage itself, and the seating area is at too much of a rake to easily use (not even taking into account the work needed to remove, then re-install, enough seating to do a maze).

I had thoughts about them doing that until they started using the theater for shows again. The park obviously knows how to build ramps (LumberHack,FrostBite,etc,) but I don't know whether or not that could be done in the RPT.

Does anyone remember how the queue for Roman Rapids was used as a maze? I never got a chance to really examine how that was pulled off with so little space. They must have used more than the queue alone. Some rooms seem like they could have easily taken up 1/6-1/4 of that space each, for Masquerage, at least. Last Laugh Industries had very small rooms, mostly.
