    Zombie Mortuary was the top house this year.
    Then:
    Nevermore
    Vampire Casino
    Nightshade
    Death Row
    Reconstruction

    Time for the oldest houses to change they are done. If they bring back Nightshade they need to kill the son and have the father return as a spirit...

    Deconstruction

    What's humorous to me is that Deconstruction actually improved since the last time I attended.

    Agreed. 2009's was a huge disappointment IMO and this year's was actually very entertaining.

    My list is fairly interchangeable with several houses being fairly even, but Vampire Casino was my favorite house.

    Deconstruction
    Death Row Vengeance

    I almost put Deconstruction on the bottom, but in 2 runs through it I had one ok run, where I only got 1 trip through DRV and it was meh. Both have definitely outlived their shelf life, and I wouldn't mind even seeing Nightshade get replaced. Assuming they keep it at 6 houses plus Alone, I'm hoping for at least 2 new houses next year.

    My only problem with VC was the halls of broken mirrors, just too repetitive for me.
    Loved the buffet though.

    I HATED that house in 2009. HATED it! If you stumble across my review from that year you'll see it's dead last. This year though, I'm not sure why but it was better. I even got a scare in it.

    Speaking of which, despite me viewing HOS as an every other year event, I definitely got more scares this year than I did in 2009. Not sure why. I think the hordes helped A LOT.

    Ironically enough, Reconstruction went from terrible in 2009 to great this year, while DRV went from great in 2009 to terrible this year, in my opinion. As you said, I'm not sure why, but that's how it played out for me.

    And I greatly agree with your statement on the hordes. I've attended both HOS 2008 and 2009 and I can't say that I've ever gotten a scare from any scarezone they've ever held, other than the living bushes which aren't really part of a scarezone. However, the hordes may have been my favorite aspect of this year's event. I would love to see them return next year.

    I think my biggest issue this year was the New House Simply Blew the older Houses away. I loved DRV the first 2 years but this year it just seemed Blah. The new Houses certainly where Huge steps for HOS similar to what DRV was like when it opened. I don't understand the people who said the Hordes didn't work. I thought the Hordes truly made the event seem like the zombies had taken over the park. I will; say the lack of props and decorations did take away from the Halloween feel. I hope that Busch continues in this direction next year. I think that this is what they need to do in order to separate from all of the people comparing it to HHN.

    Seems like when Busch used Vampire and Zombies they really get it right, Hopefully Scott, Alex and Robbi can pull another Rabbit out of the hat next year.
