RE: Howl O Scream 2013 rumors

We hope the hords return, they were a nice addition this year and made for some fun laughs for us.

RE: Howl O Scream 2013 rumors

It has been rumored with very strong sources saying Monster Stomp will return in 2014 in the Globe Theater *hint* A new show will be in the Globe Theater that year as well ;)

Fiends is very likely to definitely staying for next year.

The hordes need some work, but I can see them making a return. Root of All Evil will probably stay considering it was just brand new. However, if the theme changes for HOS, Root of All Evil might get the boot.

Clown guys were the best. I'd be perfectly ok with the mix of hordes and scareactors hiding around the park that was present the last few weekends.

I think the park needs to work on latex facial features instead of masks. The zombies could have looked so much better, had they lost the masked, wore regular clothes that were torn, and then added some fake blood, and went on with the special effects that can be applied to the actors, they could have looked more like zombies than a group of look a like people.
Also note, the werewolves needed some different type of prop to use. The clowns had horns, zombies had chainsaws, werewolves had random items such as straps, tin cans, etc. I did like how the wolves were able to have a growling effect, where it sounded like they were actually growling like real wolves. Perhaps they take that, and expand a create howling effects for them?
I wish they had unmarked scare zones which were actually hordes that roamed a particular area. For example, clowns roaming all of Festa, rather than just the bridge. Also, expand on the theme for Festa. Have those flag banners strung up from light post to light post. Random circus tents the size of small changing rooms on the side of the pathway that actors can hide in and pop out of. Perhaps some faux games on the side of the path, like in Fear Fair, how they used the air gun, but use it in a scare zone.
Along with those, they should have full park roaming hordes that should match the park theme, zombies, where as all the others are just themed to a particular area.
Next year, turn the small German village into an overgrown garden area with vines covering the buildings, with the eyeballs. Have garden supplies for scare actors to use as props, etc.
Those are just a few things that I would personally like to see. Mainly, some work on pathway scares.

You mean like they did way back in like 2002-2004ish time frame? Where not all of the clowns wore masks, and they had more "side show freak" type characters.

Because they have had that area fully decorated before, with plenty of scareactors. They even changed the teacups to make it a "indoor" ride. (AKA they put curtains up with brightly colored spots, added blacklights, and removed the teapot in the center, in exchanged for a clown prop that was hung upside down.)

I wish they'd go back to all that.

A side note - I think the hordes need different costumes, to not all look the same. Every time I saw the clown horde all I could think of was the Joker as a window washer.

That's the only time I would ride the tea cups. I like the direction hos is taking though. And I actually liked the clown horde the way it was, no changes necessary. I loved how they would chase girls into the bathroom

Eh, I wouldn't say that. I honestly thought last year's clowns looked much, much better than this year's.
