HHN Hollywood History: Maze Locations

HHN Hollywood has been around for quite some time now. 2017 will be Murdy’s 12th Year designing HHN. Hollywood like Orlando has Maze Locations, however, Hollywood has a lot more Tents than Orlando does. We have been having 6 to 7 Mazes recently and we are rumored this year to be going to 8 Mazes. There is a lot of history behind some of the Locations at Hollywood and their History of the Mazes that have been there. So this Blog Post is for Orlando Users who don’t know the Locations and it will include Mazes that have been in that Area within the last 6 years that are currently gonna keep being used. Ready? Let’s Go!

We will be starting with the Upper Lot, then going to talk about the Lower Lot, and finally the Backlot.

UPPER LOT:

HOH QUEUE: 

walking-dead-universal-studios

This Queue was previously home to the Infamous House of Horrors which featured infamous Universal Monsters. It then in 2016 was announced to become home to The Walking Dead during the Summer of that year. It became a Reality and it recreated scenes from the hit tv show. It’s been very infamous to be holding Mazes relating to the Universal Monsters and that is where the name HOH (House of Horrors) comes from. It’s a interesting location as it holds either Universal Monsters Remix or a Promotional Film.

HISTORY: 

2010: Vampyr Castle of the Undead

2011: The Wolfman The Curse of Talbot Hall

2012: Universal Monsters Remix

2013: Universal Monsters Remix: Resurrection

2014: Face Off: In the Flesh

2016: The Walking Dead

WATERWORLD QUEUE:

One of the newest Locations that was discovered and used is the Waterworld Queue. Which is home to the hit show Waterworld. In 2016 it was used for the first time for the Maze The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Blood Brothers and judging off that Maze, the Waterworld Queue seems like a Pretty Great Place for Mazes. It’s a very long queue so it’s easy to see why it’s great for Horror Nights as it allows Murdy to make some pretty long Mazes.

HISTORY:

2016: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Blood Brothers

PERSIAN COURTYARD:

One of the more odd Locations is the Persian Courtyard. It hasn’t had too many mazes but it has had some pretty bizarre ones. Some Really Good and some really… Odd. It’s not really the greatest Place for Mazes as it isn’t very long and it’s a pretty tight Area. It was not used in 2016 for any mazes but has been rumored (By the Leaked Lineup) to return to HHN this year. Fingers Crossed!

HISTORY:

2013: El Cucuy: The Boogeyman

2014: Dracula Untold: Reign of Blood

2015: Halloween Michael Myers Comes Home

LOWER LOT: 

JP QUEUE:13256894_814429285323861_187439643_n

It started being used in 2011 and has been used ever since. The JP Queue is possibly the Best Maze Location at HHN. It always holds a Great Maze in the venue that usually is a Favorite. It excels at being the Perfect Length for a Maze and all of the Mazes that have been in this Queue have had Great Scares. It is located next to Jurassic Park hence JP Queue. The JP Queue is incredible as a Maze Location and every year it holds one of the Best Mazes of the Year.

HISTORY:

2011: Alice Cooper’s Welcome To My Nightmare

2012: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Saw Is The Law

2013: Insidious: Into the Further

2014: An American Werewolf in London

2015: Insidious: Return to the Further 

2016: Halloween: Hell Comes to Haddonfield  

MUMMY QUEUE:

Also one of the longest running Maze Locations at HHN. The Mummy Queue is also right next to the Revenge of The Mummy hence the Mummy Queue. It’s been known to hold Good Mazes for most of the time. It was good until 2014 it didn’t get back to normal until The Exorcist happened. It’s another really bizarre Queue in the Park. The Mazes in this Queue are also very short. It’s definitely Infamous and Famous for Sure. It also is the first Maze to start Construction in 2017 and is rumored to have Stanley Kubrick’s Classic The Shining.

HISTORY:

2010: Saw: Game On

2011: Eli Roth’s Hostel: Hunting Season

2012: Welcome to Silent Hill

2013: Evil Dead: Book of the Dead

2014: Clowns 3D: Music By Slash

BACKLOT: 

METRO SETS:

It wasn’t used until 2013 for the first time by The Walking Dead. It’s a pretty Famous and Great Maze Location. It’s pretty Famous for holding some of the Most Beautifully Designed Mazes at HHN. There’s not really too much to say about it. It doesn’t usually get the Longest Waits even though it has had some fantastic Mazes.

HISTORY: 

2013: The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven

2014: The Walking Dead: End of The Line

2015: Crimson Peak: Maze of Madness

2016: Krampus

747 AREA:

20160708_112705

Again it was used for the first time in 2013 for a Maze called Black Sabbath 13 3D. While it wasn’t off to a great start it was used again in 2014 for one of Hollywood’s Most Complex Mazes (And Most Expensive). That Maze was AVP: Alien Vs Predator and it was so expensive that they brought it back in 2015 the exact same! In 2016 they took it out of the Soundstage and brought it outside as a Tented Maze. Murdy has stated that he probably won’t able to do it in the Soundstage this year and have to do in a tent outside of the Soundstage.

HISTORY:

2013: Black Sabbath 13-3D

2014: AVP: Alien Vs Predator

2015: AVP: Alien Vs Predator

2016: Freddy Vs Jason

FDTD AREA:

IMG_4229

This is also sort of one of the most recent Maze Locations. It started being used in 2014 with it’s first Maze being From Dusk Till Dawn hence the name FDTD and it’s a pretty interesting area. It’s only had two mazes and both have of them have been Tv Shows. Both were pretty good. I think this Queue will become a Favorite in the near future.

HISTORY:

2014: From Dusk Till Dawn

2016: American Horror Story
