I’ve updated the information I posted earlier about Howl-O-Scream 2009 to include the locations and likely locations in my opinion. Here’s the run down:
I think Bitten will take advantage of one of the Big Bad Wolf stations. It takes place in Germany and the description Busch has given says, “The manor sits by the road upon which all travelers must pass … and never return.” The Big Bad Wolf station is located next to the San Marco bridge, anyone walking from Oktoberfest to San Marco or the reverse must pass the station, and obviously it’s not being used for it’s current purpose.
Catacombs will be in France, where exactly is the only question. There is not a lot of flat land or space in France, I think the Royal Palace Theater has to play a part somehow.
When I took the train around the park I noticed some stone work on the inside of the old Drachen Fire station, stone would certainly fit the story of Cavern of Darkness, although the atmosphere of the queue line for Corkscrew Hill would fit the story more, but alas, there doesn’t seem to be enough room there to do an effective house or maze.
Cursed will probably take place in the Roman Rapids queue.
I think The Hunted will be in the old Drachen Fire train barn.
It’s not hard to figure out where Revenge of Pompeii will be located.
As far as the scarezones, a few of the descriptions tell you exactly where they will be, but others are left for you to figure out. Harvest Hollow will probably be on the old Drachen Fire land as it offers enough space for “farmland”. The only other mystery is Strangers Beware, which seems based on the story of Frankenstein, so it could be located in a German section.
