Part of my Halloween Horror Nights 24 (HHN) adventures was taking the Unmasking the Horror Tour. This tour takes fans on a behind the scenes look at their haunted houses. Our tour took us into 6 of their 8 houses so I decided to break them each up into their own post in order to give you a better look at each of them. This is a behind the scenes look at the “AVP: Alien vs. Predator” house.
The above video is a series of photos that I took while on the tour. What I will be doing now is describing some of the things you saw in the video, so you might want to read this and then go back and watch the video again.
The first few pics are of the entrance to the house, or crashed spaceship in this case. Just as you get the feel for the spaceship atmosphere, you run into these guys…
In this house, the aliens like this guy were puppets. If you were at last year's HHN, these aliens were done similar to the werewolves in the "American Werewolf in London" house. The heads, and jaws would come out at you as you walked by.
In this room, there was a dead predator on the table. In the video you can see his wound. There's even a dead scientist on the floor.
Here you see a small alien in an awkward position. What you might not be able to tell is that it's actually behind a window, and comes flying up at it similar to what you see in the movie.
You might be wondering where are all the predators besides the dead one on the table. Well, the predators were all scare actors. Actually, we got to see some back stage, and they were very big and tall scare actors. Apparently during the first weekend they didn't show themselves that much, but in the weeks to follow they changed that. They made sure everyone would see the predators after that.
The aliens like that guy were just as cool. Don't be fooled by them just being puppets.
Speaking of cool, I enjoyed walking over the platform, and seeing the alien eggs. It just seemed right to have them included in the fun.
And if you have eggs, then you have to have humans caught in the alien web of nastiness. The humans in the video are obviously fake, but at night there's a real scare actor hiding in one.
I also enjoyed the skinned guy hanging here!
Here they had some screens for you to look at. Of course, while you are looking at them, they were either aliens or predators waiting for you.
Overall, this was an awesome house. The alien puppets were just as cool as last year's werewolves. The predators were giants, and so real like. They did a great job of putting you right in the world of these two creatures. So that was a look at the "AVP: Aliens vs. Predators” house. If you have any questions about the house, or HHN24, please feel free to ask.
