Dollhouse, Cornstalkers, and Asylum all seemed to have 90-120 minute waits. Bloodshed looked to be about 45-60 minutes.  And London Terror had no wait.

I went Friday as well and I never saw long lines. My longest wait was Asylum which was only 45 minutes and that was just because I hopped in que before it opened around 7'ish. Cornstalkers was only 40 minutes and the other haunts were less than 30 minutes for me. Guess I just timed everything right  :dunno:

Btw anyone else notice in Bloodshed that a room was gutted? Thought it was kind of weird for WoF to start gutting rooms with it being Halloween weekend.

We were on that side of the park from 9-10 or so. If you were over there earlier or later it is likely the lines were shorter. By 11 there were plenty of people leaving the park. Asylum was stretched all the way to the 2 hour sign when we went (at least that's what I thought the sign said). Cornstalkers was all the way down to the bottom of the Nile hill, and Dollhouse line was just as long as Asylumn.  Dunno.  Just stating what I saw.  Since I didn't have to wait, I had to estimate.

I went sunday and all attractions had no wait after nine or so,even Doll Factory,Asylum, CornStalkers, and London Terror, and also it seemed like the actors were at their best. Best night of the year to go

Empty houses are always fun.  The year I went to HOS we were the first ones through one of the houses.  No one in front of you to deflect scares means you get all of them.

Now thinking back on it Doll Factory had a long line, ended up skipping it till around 11 when it was almost a walk on.

Anyways I did not want to start a 2012 haunt page since there hasn't been any talk about it yet, but I think I figured out WoF's pattern with upgrading haunts. Check out this timeline:

2001-2005: Carnivorous Clowns ( Re invented into Carnevil scare zone in 2007)
2004-2008: Lore of the Vampire ( Club Blood is added to the basement portion in 2009)
2004-2009: Camp Gonnagitcha Witchahatchet ( Upgraded to Corn Stalkers in 2010)
2005-2010: Dominion of Doom ( Upgraded to Terror of London in 2011)

See the pattern? It looks like a haunts life span is 4 to 5 seasons before it gets upgraded. Which means:

2006-2011???: Asylum Island (Upgrade to ??)

Before some one starts the rumor mill please remember this is just pure speculation. I could be way off with these findings.

I'd like to see Outlaw's Revenge and Fright Zone get some rethinking. They just don't seem to work really well most days. Fright Zone particularly needs some sort of unifying theme like the others, right now it just seems like a mismash of leftover monsters.

I always thought Fright Zone could use some sort of alien theme, and Outlaw's Revenge could be upgraded to a zombie camp scarezone (like Camp Gonnagitcha), but we could also use another scare zone, maybe either somewhere in OOF or the Mamba Plaza!?!?

I would love to see Fright Zone get a Zulu/Cannibal theme. Other than the costumes, the area is already themed for it.

I'm not so much focused on Fright Zone as I am Outlaw's Revenge. Fright Zone gets me everytime, while Outlaw's Revenge is just another walkthrough. As for Asylum, it really does need a retheme. The only problem is the general public can not stand change.  But my hopes for a maze would be Holiday Horror of WolfPack.

Outlaws revenge could do with some netting or something to make it a more distinct zone.  I vote for getting rid of it completely and doing an evil Santa Claus theme in Europa using the existing lights  pure_evil

EDIT: wooho for 1000th post...

A Holidays of Horror scarezone would be awesome!!! Especialy with that evil (misplaced) bunny from CarnEvil. If I were in charge I would put the Holidays in this order-
Sally's Flower Garden- Easter
Patriotic section- 4th of July
Baseball- Christmas
Blue- Thanksgiving

I could really see that idea working in that section!
As for mideveal, that would go great in the little bumper cars, because we don't really use those during the Halloween season.
if we put in the big bumper car arena, I think it could get the section really crowded expecialy on Saturdays.

I'm with Bradley on both ideas.  Cannibals/Zulu for FrightZone and Spooky Santa for Europa.  And getting rid of Outlaws.

Now thinking about it, Holidays of Horror(maze) would be a good replacement for Doll Factory IMO, but I'm still with Bradley on the replacing scare zones thing.
