So the inevitable question comes up. Which did you prefer Universal or Knotts this year? What was the scariest maze from both parks.
I did both last year, but thinking of maybe only doing one this year.
Also (while this prob doesn't fit into the "theme park guidelines", did you go or have a review for dark harbor at the queen mary?
For me, Halloween Horror Nights is far and away the better event. If the extra money that Horror Night costs is not an issue, I'd advise you to go there.
Insidious was, in my opinion, the scariest maze at Horror Nights while Delirium took that prize at Knott's Scary Farm.
Horror Nights wins in terms of maze quality while KSF offers five more mazes. Despite Knott's insistence that they're taking a quality over quantity approach (as evidenced by having less mazes this year, I guess) this year's event felt like a step sideways for the event.
I have actually never been to the Queen Mary in any capacity (which I suppose makes me a bad Californian) and I'm getting on a plane to move to Houston tomorrow, so I don't think I'll make it out there this year. I have heard good things about it in the past -- and I don't believe it's particularly expensive.
Last year, I did all 3 & thought Queen Mary was the best, followed closely by Universal.
Was just curious about this year.
Thanks for the review & enjoy Houston!
I think it's possible to both have a story and be scary -- Knott's has done it before, after all; but if they're just going to do one thing, it should certainly be scaring.
