Hello everybody, I know its been a rather long time since you’ve heard from me but the seemingly endless lull in haunt season is over and we have RUMORS!!!! It’s around this time every year that we start to watch both the HHN Hollywood and the HHN Orlando Twitter feed to see what clues they release to us and recently they have been providing some interesting theories. I know the HHN fan Facebook page has been abuzz with fan theories and suggestions but here is what we know for sure, I will start with Hollywood and finish with Orlando.
For Hollywood we have been given three codenames, via their Twitter feed and the ever so awesome John Murdy. The first Codename we have is “Lemonade”. We know that this maze will be based on a movie but we have no confirmation on what that title will be. Based on the Tweet John had sent out it was roughly 119 pages long but yesterday seems to have brought some different ideas and apparently while working on the 4th maze there was some “substantial redesigning” of that first maze treatment. According to the team the codename works even better now so perhaps we have sunken deeper into the IP material.
The Second Codename for Hollywood is “Charles”. This project apparently holds a special place in John’s heart and is apparently “the trickiest maze they have ever done”. Could this mean a property never seen before as a haunted attraction anywhere? Many people, including a good friend to this site Dr. Jimmy, believe that perhaps this is a direct link to The Shinning. Now Stephen King has long blocked any attempt to make any of his properties into haunts but maybe just maybe Universal was able to woo him with what they created in The Exorcist maze last year. One tweet that caught my eye when looking at the tweets for this second code name said this “In the middle of writing the treatment for maze #2 and working on a super iconic scene that is damn near impossible to realize in a maze…”. Does this mean the Iconic river of blood streaming from the elevator doors?
The third and final confirmed Codename as of right now for Hollywood is “Writers Block”. This tweet came with a picture of a nice little present from John’s wife and an interesting hint. “The M and the N are gone! A clue?” is this a clever clue or is he simply trying to throw us off of the trail. The thing about Codenames is, so early on it is hard to really get a good feeling on any of them because the possibilities are nearly endless.
Now moving on to Orlando and the tweets from the always entertaining Mike Aiello. HHN Orlando has been relatively quiet on the Codename front but we do have one to work with so far. “Checkmate” Mike has said almost nothing on details for the house so as of right now any thing you hear is really just rumors but some of the rumors that I have been hearing flying around the HHN fan Facebook page are; Hellraiser, Chucky, SAW and The Shinning. Orlando tends to keep us guessing on codenames a bit longer then Hollywood but I do expect to hear more being announce in the very near future.
I hope you enjoyed the article ladies and gents. I know how excruciating it can be waiting for haunt season to arrive once again but as always keep your eyes posted on HHNUnoffical and we will bring you the latest info as soon as it is released. Also let us know in the comments what you think those codenames mean!
