Best three HHN houses?

Universal Orlando: I want to experience the best three houses at HHN before USO gets mobbed by drunken lines.

Normally I visit Halloween Horror Nights Orlando early in the month but due to schedule conflicts I'm forced to attend in the later half of this month-- and I know lines can get out-of-control HORRENDOUS!!

So I ask you... which are the top three (in order) houses to visit at HHN this year?

Getting the $80 express passes are not in my budget so I figure I can at least visit the best three houses there then go enjoy all the shows.

PSS: In houses, I'm more impressed by housing effects/scenery than actually getting scared.

So tell me: the best three houses at HHN and why. Any other hints would be mucho appreciated.

If you've been before you have to go to the anniversary house - hallowed past or something like that. The first two rooms are entirely filled with props from past horror nights and there are all these crazy details. Plus the rest of it has most of the previous icons.
I thought that the legendary truth house was very well done and it is the first time they've ever done a real ghost house before so it has some new tricks.
The rest of them were pretty even except I didn't get to go in Orphanage and it had the longest wait. Everyone who's been in it has loved it and it has an open flame in the house, another first.
PS. Bill and Ted sucks this year :(

Just got back from Orlando. We went to HHN Sat. and the lines were not that bad. we went directly to the houses as soon as it opened and had all of them done by 10:00 the longest line was 30minutes. We got texted the wait times every hour and didn't see one past 50 minutes. Hallowed past was definitely the best. The others were a coin flip. we must of got legendary truth on a shift change cause we walked 3/4 of the way thru without seeing a character. but we went back thru later and seemed more characters inside. I also agree with Mrs. Potter Bill & Ted was lame it seemed shorter then usual and as a must see on my agenda I was expecting it to be much more creative and funny.

I was highly impressed with The Orphanage and The Hades house. The HHN 20 years of fear was good for a look at the past, piece from different houses have been recreated and some of them where the best from the years.

Bill and Ted was pretty good but last years was much better in my opinion.

I believe it was 46464 was the text for the wait times, Mine updated every half hour. Helpful but after about 10 minutes it's subject to change.
