Islands of Fear 2: HHN 23Universal Orlando: Should Universal bring back Islands of Fear for next year?
From Michael TLately,I've been seeing footage from past HHN on youtube, and there was one that caught my eye, and that was Islands of Fear, and i wondered why universal hasn't done something like this again, especially with the opening of Wizarding World, so i ask you guys, should Universal do HHN 23(2013)on islands of adventure, and if so, what would be your ideas for scare zones and/or haunted houses? I would love to see Marvel zombies and Hogwarts invaded by dementors

From luis gonzalezI think it would be a great idea to bring HHN back to IOA. I've been to every HHN since 02' and though I love it. It's gotten stale since carnaval of carnage in 07'. having the rollercoasters and WWOHP open will not only increase the fun, it will spread the crowds out better than USO. the only draw back to IOA is the lack of space for the houses. houses had to be built into the jurassic park, camp jurassic and popeye queues. the queues at IOA are much hard to use than the ones in USO, making for less successful houses. that being said, I would also like to see a reduction in the house quantity and an increase in house quality. It would be tough though with the size of crowds they attract.

From Michael T@dom it could happen,they'd just be limited to the characters that are in the park

From Carrie HoodFrankly I thought HHN 14 was one of the best, when it was spread out between both IoA and Studios using the backlot as the "Field of Screams" scare zone as well as "Fright Yard". Frankly, I think it was a genius use of their space and gave folks some extra bang for their buck.

So long as they don't bring back that S**T smell from HHN13 in the Jurassic Park Discover Center (Psychoscarapy) we're all good! You could smell that from the pathway and man was it rancid!
..just remember, don't touch the TP!
