Yup, as of last year, Slaughter House still has the inflatable tunnel!

More details released about the 5 new attractions.  

https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2019/september/5-new-attractions-added-to-kings-island’s-halloween-haunt

I'm guessing Drums of the Dead will take the cake as the best new attraction this year.  They've told people it'll be bigger and better than Blood Drums.  Blood Drums had an excellent year last year.  If they can top it this year then go for it!

My understanding is that this was not the case, although that was my first thought.

Don't forget that the other parks are still using SDC so this situation is certainly unique.

These new additions sound fun. I'm assuming Shipwrecked is in Action Zone?

I have 2 questions:

1. When do you think the eyes will be put on the Eiffel Tower?

2. Do we know if Kings Island will create a playlist of Haunt music on Spotify?

2.  Chad already has one.  Check out this tweet from last week for a link.

 I love how that list includes "Feed My Frankenstein" by Alice Cooper, "The Addams Groove" by MC Hammer, and "Pet Sematary" by The Ramones, a bit of a throwback to the Paramount days.

I find that very odd indeed. Ki may be the proving grounds

Im guessing sometime in the week before Haunt, after all of the weekend park buyouts are done.

I was at the park on Friday, the eyes are up, as they were using the 265 foot Platform instead of the 275 foot.

Kings Island just tweeted about Shipwrecked (new scare zone): 

I can't wait to see it.

Tweeted from KI.  5 new Haunt attractions?  I assume one of these is the aforementioned shipwreck.  I wonder what the other 4 could be?

International Street Fear sounds really good based off the description. Wonder what props will be there.

Does anyone here remember when they used the drained Congo falls for the scarecrow theamed haunted attraction Corn Stalkers? They only did it one year,  I thought it was a great use of space and it kept the fog centralized. 

CornStalkers never used the drained Congo Falls area.  The years it was in Action Zone it used the Timberwolf walkway next to Congo Falls.  It moved there in 2008 & was there for at least the 2009 season too according to this History of the Haunt post.  I've circled that area in red in the picture below.  I'm not sure exactly where the entrance and exit were as I was busy working Club Blood & Slaughterhouse's original location those years.  Cedar Point's CornStalkers uses their drained Thunder Canyon ride area.

My 10yo got her feet wet going to Haunt last year. Mainly hanging is scare zones, Madame Fatales, and Wolf Pack. Then of course rides at night. She didn't want to do KillMart or Slaughter House because she didn't want to see "gore". Blackout she just didn't want to lose me lol. We plan to go again this year for her birthday and she is asking if any of the houses have air bags. Soooo any chance? Yes it's a fascination of hers. :rolleyes:

Slaughterhouse has had the compression tunnel (air bags) for the past 11 years.

CP's Slaughterhouse has nice scenery.  I especially like their freezer room.

That area seems like good Haunt real estate. I wonder why it isn't used anymore.

I remember hearing/reading comments from guests about that area being too bright with the lights from Drop Tower and them reflecting off the fog, but whether that's the reason I don't know.

Some things I think would be cool to add.

  • Change in the projections in the shed
  • Bring back the train but this time have people ride the entire length of the ride and go past creepy scenes
    • I heard they stopped train operations for 2 reasons: 
      • 1 because the addition of MT shortened the length of the attraction to make it not worth it.
      • 2 because the trains have a certain amount of run-time on their boilers so the park opted Haunt in favor of Winterfest)
  • Change up Boo Blasters with extra props, and more creepy music
    • I heard scareactors are no longer allowed in the ride building for safety reasons. @XGatorHead 8904 would know
  • Add different audio in the Adventure Express tunnels
