Halloween Horror Nights 2012 Construction Begins

*UPDATE* – HHN 2012 building permits filed. Confirm HHN 22 to be held in Universal Studios Florida only. Full story here.

Today, several Notice of Commencements for Halloween Horror Nights 2012 appeared online at the Orange Country Comptroller’s website. The documents, filed with Orange County on May 8th 2012, are the first step of the construction process for Halloween Horror Nights, signifying the start of construction.

Like every year, Universal has filed the typical Notice of Commencements for the “Construction of the Halloween Horror Nights 2012 Haunted Houses” as well as “Scenic Elements for the Halloween Horror Nights 2012 Haunted Houses”, both being executed by Fake Productions, Universal’s go-to contractor for HHN construction. But there were a few more Notice of Commencements filed this year, one of which confirms a new house location:

For the first time since 2004, and only the second time in Halloween Horror Nights history, we will see a house located in the old Hercules & Xena building, also known as Sound Stage 44. This location has been rumored to hold a house since the loss of the Jaws Queue, so we finally have confirmation that it will indeed be used for HHN.

However, even with these new Notice of Commencements, we still don’t have any solid evidence confirming a two park HHN or a USF only HHN, so the waiting game continues. It won’t be long now until we see building permits filed for each individual haunted house with the City of Orlando, and we will finally have confirmation of where the event will be taking place, and all the venues that will be used for houses.

*UPDATE* – HHN 2012 building permits filed. Confirm HHN 22 to be held in Universal Studios Florida only. Full story here.

Since these documents were filed with Orange County on May 8th, it’s safe to assume construction of this year’s Halloween Horror Nights houses is already well underway. I’ve included screen captures of all the┬áNotice of Commencements filed below. Leave your thoughts in the comments below, or discuss this on the ParkRumors Forums!
