I thought I made a post about this a while ago, but it looks like it got lost in the site shuffle.

Before last year I would have said BGT's were way better. After last year, I'd say BGW has just about caught up with the production and entertainment quality of BGT's Howl-O-Scream shows.

Tut's Tomb closed up in the last two weeks, and all of the props in the entrance area were removed. So it might become a haunted house location again this year.

The pavilion near the Nairobi Train Station is also already under wraps for conversion to a haunted house. Otherwise, no visible other visible work that I've seen thus far.

The always popular Fiends will be back. But will it be in the newly renovated Stanleyville Theatre or it's home last year at the Desert Grill? In previous years, Fiends was in Stanleyville and there was another show in Desert Grill.

If I had to guess, I'd say Stanleyville Theater is out. The conversion over to Madagascar would require some major cover up to take on a different show. Plus, I'm not sure they'd close it up for several months after just debuting a few months ago.

Just my opinion, but I'll keep an ear out.

Nice, I was wondering why it was still open last year. Perfect place for a maze. The problem is the queue and the gift shop at the end. Maybe they would close the gift shop for a queue?

Not sure. The gift shop is still open at this point. According to wiki, it was last used as for a haunted house in 2004, and it's only been used twice in the history of the event.

For it to be excluded, I have to imagine that would be the Alone replacement, no?

I'm on mobile until later but it looks like at the end of the YouTube videos all 13 evils are shown. Can anyone pull out the frames? I see the three already revealed plus at least a doctor and some kind of beast/Satan/minotaur.
