In the past they had mazes in the soundstages just east of the Special Effects Stage. Also, they had a maze in the parking level just under T2-3D.
When I was a wee lad, I attended the first HHN with the tram tour at night. It was fantastic! After the Battle of Galactica, a 'guest' in the tram stood up and was taking pictures of the Valley. The guide repeatedly would tell the guy to sit down. When he didn't, a monster pulled the guest out of the tram!! (I can't find anything online about it, but I believe this is where someone was killed by being dragged by the tram). They had a police barricade down by the mill warning the tram of someone with a chainsaw on the loose on the backlot. Brownstone Street was the scene of riots and looting. The Phantom of the Opera was on top of the marquee on New York Street throwing pumpkins on the ground. A dummy was hung upside down on the Collapsing Bridge and would slam down in between tram cars. The Creature from the Black Lagoon was along the Parting of the Red Sea, swatting at the tram. A tractor pulled off a guy's arm in Six Points Texas. Europe had a scene in the Court of Miracles. The tram traveled behind the Bates Motel and Mother waved a knife at the tram! The final scene took place up at the tram yard where the guy with the chainsaw on top of a tram. Needless to say, it was pretty cool!
if they are doing this, I hope the park has rented those soundstages by now... with production getting popular at USH it's not easy to get those soundstages near the park maybe.. (well might be easier...)
those descriptions sound nice... Orlando's as mentioned before uses it's more usually vacant soundstages and empty areas of the park.... (depending which park they use that year)
I believe the scene in Six Points Texas was a shot-gun wedding gone bad and it was Frankenstein being threatened with fire in the Court of Miracles. I can't recall what entertainment was in the Castle theater for the event. It might have just been the Conan show, but for some reason I want to say there was something in the theatre where Shrek 4-D is.
I remember the first one USH had was in 1992 because I was a character roaming the park near the entrance. The entrance used was the side one near what is now T2:3D.
There was a maze in the parking structure underneath T2:3D.
One guest did get killed on the tram and I believe it was in the spinning tunnel (whatever the theme of it now).
"And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, " This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???
USH would be wise to do the same. Of course people could always drink in CityWalk. They could also do the no re-entry thing like Knott's does and not tell people there is no alcohol being served in the park.
BGT serves alchaholl during their Howl O Scream events... (I was there during employee night.. last year.. lots of drunks in some mazes..)
HHN here in Orlando serves Alcohol and I think that's partly the draw. There are more bars open during the event than there are restaurants actually. I still love going every year despite the fact that the crowds do get a little crazy.
