Probably not, but they always want more. I also suspect a decently large chunk of the modern event's attendance comes from casuals who are in fact there to see a particular IP.

With the crowds the last few years do they need to sell the event?

those hands holding open a thing... reminds of some classic internet I mean, yeah it's horrific, but I dunno if you wanna make a theme park attraction out of it?

I haven't been keeping up with the rumors for this year, but rather perplexed by them breaking from recent tradition by not announcing the IPs first. They're typically used to sell the event, as much as us purists tend to prefer the original houses.

Man. As much as I love the Abba soundtrack with One Night in Bangkok... It is a property more recent than that movie. Also...it's a scare zone. Central Park. We will see if it sticks the landing this time.

The rook? Chess house confirmed?

Notice the rook. And as for the first part. You certainly can.

I'm brainstorming ideas. If it's non IP, I think it's likely we see a continuation of the recent Latin horror themed houses with Brazillian or Colombian tropical horror. If it is IP, I really can't think of any horror franchises that take place in the Tropical Americas. But hear me out... what if we finally see the return of a Jurassic Park house or scarezone? That would definitely be a real "WHAA?" moment.

Very very interesting...
