Greetings internet dwellers!
Well, finally, HHN Orlando has officially released the dates for HHN XXVII. The event will run on select nights, starting on September 15th, through November 4th. They also released one of their "it's never too soon to start panicking" videos.
Of course, with most HHN talk, there is also some complaining. September 28th, is mysteriously missing from the date calendar. This is weird, as it is a Thursday, and in the second full week of the event. I am sure they have their reasons, but some FFP people are already crying foul. They gave you more dates elsewhere, so there will be plenty of dates for FFP people to attend.
The final night, is on a Saturday, which is also ruffling some normal FFP holding people. A lot of them, like to attend the final night, and this could turn into a 2014 situation for some. We will see.
Let's talk about length (giggity). This is the longest HHN has ever gone. Is it too much? I am indifferent on this front. Halloween Horror Nights, has grown exponentially over the last five years. While last year may have been a bit down, compared to 2015, the Halloween Horror Nights machine, is still sitting high.
The powers that be, are just feeding the machine. People want more, so they are giving it to them. Is it greed? Not really. Universal Orlando, is a business, and they are in the business of making money. As much as people don't like to hear that, it's reality. So if people want more, then I'm all for giving them more.
A business wanting to make money isn't greed, it's business. Where the greedy aspect comes in, is doing something like inflating wait times, so more people buy Express Passes. That to me, is greedy.
So, no, I don't think it's greedy.
Now, my logical brain says "holyfuckingshitthatsalotofdates". However, I don't inherently see anything wrong with the longest running HHN event, thus far.
Anyway, you can see the HHN video below. We are creeping into reveal season, and we all wait with baited breath.
So long for now, friends.
