it was kickass. Lots to drink definitely. I don't think it was as creepy as in previous years, but the layout was pretty good. ALso,the corn maze wasn't what I thought it would be, it was jst a normal scare zone with corn and scarecrows and bloody rednecks with chainsaws. Castle Vampyr was the best haunted house. There were some awesome makeup effects in some of the haunted houses, especially in Castle Vampyr and the Wax Horrors haunted houses. The best were the ghoulish stripper girls dancing at the front of the park when you first come in. They were hot and ugly at the same time if that is possible. I missed the scare zone around Jurrasic Park,but not the haunted house. A lot of the haunted houses this year utilized the studio's sound stages and a lot of the event and scare zones were in the backlot between the two parks. Also,it isn't shown on the map, but DUeling Dragons was open and only had a 10 minute wait because it wasn't advertised. We rode both. Hulk not surprisingly makes a better rollercoaster than a movie as well. Also there's a parade of the Bizarre. I got tons of beads, some of them have skulls. The Bill & Ted show was kick ass again this year. The plot is that Dr. Evil and Montgomery Burns had Darth Vader kidnap Bush and Kerry so that they may become President and Vice President of the United States. A lot of hot chicks and a lot of cameos by this years pop culture icons. Definitely a fun time. Oh and Express Passes are worth every penny.
