Goodbye Asylum, Louisiana Scream, Streets of the Undead, and Terror of London. We will miss ye. Especially you, Streets. Your production value was <3. Though, I'm thinking Blackout or Code Red are gonna be some kind of spiritual successor to Streets of the Undead. Bloody Buccaneers.... Red Beard's Rage remade, perhaps?

SOMEHOW Club Blood is still around. Like, c'mon. Vampires are SO 2010. Grats on Cornstalkers surviving another year!

I'm looking forward to Forest of fear, Hope it's in the back area! Code Red and Blackout kinda look like they'll have overlapping themes, so we'll see how that goes.

I"M EXCITED! Can't wait to see the scare zones as well!

Kingswood area. Looks like it might be where Forest of Fear is? Hard to tell.

My guess is Code Red is gonna take over Asylum's spot
Blackout is gonna be in the mountain with The Ruins
and Forest of Fear is probably gonna be kingswood.

Oh, and Bloody Buccaneers is gonna be in the medieval Faire area near The Rage and Leviathan while The Plague is closer to the theatre and Riptide.

And everything else is where it was before (The graveyard at front gates, Ghostly Pines at Expo, Scifi house behind Medieval Faire washrooms, Trick or Treat at Vortex, etc).

I am curious what this new show is, replacing Skeleton Crew most likely. Gonna miss those skeletons.

um . . .clown and madferret, I guess you didn't go to haunt last year. Asylum was changed to Code Red last year, so it is a returning maze, and not new for this year.

Honorarius, every year, I take the same route around Haunt. First, I always get the meal. At $15, for a quick all-you-can-eat meal, you can never go wrong with that. So, I always get the 5:30 meal, then at 6:30, they open up the 2 mazes in king's courtyard early, before the public, and so by 7:00, my group has already done the other maze by the arcade. By 7:00, we have already done 3 mazes and are in line for Spirit Manor and Cornstalkers. We usually are done these mazes by 8:00. Then we go on a couple of "haunted" rides, like Haunted Thunder Run, Vortex in the dark. We then do the two mazes in the mountain and this year, my group is going to do Zombies 3D (Guardian). We then head over to the maze near Kingswood and then over to Code Red (formerly the Asylum). By this time, we usually go in the theatre show to warm up a bit, and enjoy funnel cakes to end the evening. For as long as Haunt as been around and even when it was called Fearfest, this route has worked. Good luck, Honorarius, and happy Haunting!.

Oh yeah, I'll also been getting the Haunt Season Pass this year as I will be going twice this year. I will post my TR's after the 14th and 21st.

HAUNT . . . HAUNT . . . HAUNT . . .

Thanks a bunch for the tips!!!

I'm only going the once, so hoping with a good plan in place, I can cram it all in... Def going to try your route... Getting the meal as well...

Looking forward to your TR...

One more thing, Honrarius. Stay off the rides. If you want to do rides then go on Leviathan and Behemoth and other rides during the day. Lining up for rides at Haunt takes up very important maze time. You gotta keep moving to see every maze, and you will have a head start, by going to the meal, but always try to stay ahead of the public.

I agreed to it in exchange for an extra day at BGW earlier this summer...

Sometimes, sacrifices must be made :)

Yes, I am aware... but from the appearance of the sign and the description of the maze it seems a wholly different concept. It may occupy the same space as Asylum, but thematically it's sounding a lot more like... well maybe not streets, but definitely Cryohazard.
