Greetings internet dwellers!
As May turns into June this week, HHN info will most likely be kicking into high-gear. While yours truly may, or may not (wink) know what is coming this year, I feel this is a good time to go over what we know so far. This does not include forum chatter. Just official information.
As per the permits thus far, we know a few of the locations for houses. As I stated on Friday, there are 6 confirmed permits that have been filed. There is one mystery permit for a tent structure (which is NOT a Sprung Tent), where the scuttlebutt says it will be used for HHN. However, the permit gives no confirmation definitively, nor where the location is exactly. While I personally believe it will be used for HHN, without confirmation, we can't say yes, or no.
The locations we know for sure, based on the permits are: The Shrek Building, Sprung Tent 1, Sound Stage 24A, Sound Stage 24B, Sound Stage 22, and The Parade Building. While we have those locations confirmed by permits, we also know Sprung Tent 2 will be used, and that is where The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is going. It was confirmed via Twitter, that The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, will be in Sprung Tent 2, and codename Cobweb is going in Sprung Tent 1.
That being said, we have two announced houses- The Exorcist and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre of course. While we don't know the exact one, Mike also confirmed The Exorcist will be in one of the Sound Stages.
Via the house locations, we also know, the event will take place solely at Universal Studios Florida, and not IOA.
A few details were given on 2 original houses. Codename Cobweb, seems to be generating the most buzz around the interwebs. The house is being described as having a "claustrophobic feel." Mike seems to be real excited about this one. We got a batch of behind the scenes photos from Cobweb as well.
We also know an older house, is getting a bit of an update. A "requel" is coming. Not much is known about what this is. All we know, is that it is based on an older house. It will carry the same theme, and be part sequel and part remake. And it is not Cobweb.
There has been no exact confirmation of house count. We know seven for sure, but that doesn't mean the total is seven. If one chooses to take into account the mystery permit at this point, that's eight. Still, doesn't confirm only eight houses. Don't be surprised if a permit for Sound Stage 21 pops up in the near future.
We also don't know how many houses will be based on IP's, and how many are originals.
There has been zero word given on Scare Zones. We know they are happening in some form, but nothing else has been said so far. The first round of auditions have also taken place. Returning Scareactor's were given first dibs on May 22nd. The next rounds of auditions, will happen on June 14th and the 28th.
For shows, we of course know that Bill & Ted is happening, but that's all we know. And that's it. Aside from the dates, that's all we know so far.
The sprint to September is about to start. Are you ready?
