    Tips for those who haven't gone:

    I went the last couple Saturdays. As was the case last year, the first weekend is the least crowded. Even still, if you really want to avoid lines, I'd recommend getting there early. And by early I mean waiting in line, outside at around 6:30 so that you can go in as soon as the gates open. People always tend to go to the first maze they see so don't do that. Start by going all the way downstairs where the Mummy and Jurassic Park rides are. Go to the Hostel maze first. No line at all. Next, go to the Alice Cooper maze (surprisingly it was probably my favorite maze this year). Again, no line. It says 5 minutes but that's more like the amount of time it takes to walk to the entrance of the maze. After that, go upstairs and do La Llorona. 15-20 minutes in line. At this point it's up to you. The lines for The Thing and House of 1000 Corpses MIGHT be a little shorter than they'd be later but you might want to take a break. Those also happen to be my least favorite ones from this year. I always love the Terror Tram and since the line is quick, it closes earlier than the rest of the park, and is right next to La Llorona, I go there next. When you're done with that, you've already done more than half of the mazes and it's probably not even 8:30 yet. The Wolfman is a 10-15 minute wait pretty much all night so you can save that for later if you want.

    I second this guy!!!! So the Coop maze was good huh? Glad to hear. I know Murdy is a huge Coop fan so I expected good things. They f'd up the front of the line pass. You can use it only once per attraction. So we are still gonna do it, but we are gonna hit the park the way you outlined and use the fotl for a second or 3rd go-round. Looking really forward to it. Was it >,=, or < last year?

    Yeah, I have a friend who said the Cooper one at Six Flags a couple years ago was terrible so I was expecting crap but it was great. Maybe the longest maze too. It's located where the King Kong shortcut was last year. The Thing (Friday the 13th location from last year) was kind of what I expected. Gross but not in a gory way. More of an arachnophobia type way. Wasn't that great. La Llorona (A Nightmare on Elm Street) was cool but maybe it's me but felt a little short. Hostel (Saw) was on par with Saw from last year. The Wolfman (House of Horrors) was good considering the limitations with the sets. House of 1000 Corpses (same as last year) we've talked about. Not a fan. Scream Terror Tram was very similar to last years Chucky theme with the exception of the characters used obviously. The walk through the Bates Motel and up the forest area is my favorite part of HHN.

    Overall, I had a great time and will probably go again. However, last year was my first time and I don't think anything compares to that. You get used to it and as scary as it can be, it's never the same as the first experience. Not that I didn't act like a pansy in the mazes. I did. Also, I loved the classic horror characters they used last year, ie Freddy, Jason, Chucky, etc. I'm also not a fan of the Bill and Ted thing but I have friends who like to go. This year's was really stupid. Worse than last year. What a waste of an hour. The fact that there were more mazes this year is a plus though.

    Edit - I think the VIP pass allows you to go to the font of the line an unlimited number of times but it's freakin' expensive. I think your plan will do you fine. I'm sure it'll get more crowded too the closer it gets to Halloween.

    You Pick This Year's Halloween Movie Marathon - ShockTillYouDrop.com

    Let's try something a bit different. Every October, "must-see horror movie" lists are generated around the Halloween season to get you prepared for the holiday. Last year, we switched it up a bit with the new Halloween classics. This year...we want to hear from you.

    Here's how it will work. E-mail me at ryanrot@gmail.com with 13 FILMS that make up your ideal Halloween horror movie marathon. In the subject header of your e-mail, use "Halloween marathon." They can be from any year, of course, no restrictions.

    I'll accept lists until October 24 then extract repeated titles and cobble them into a master top 13 list, sorting them by popularity. On October 26, we'll run the "Readers Choice Halloween Movie Marathon" list featuring the most popular films.
