Hey Thrill Seekers,
Seems like every time I post something in the morning about HHN27 they announce something new in the afternoon…
With the lack of information up until now I’m definitely not complaining. This afternoon Universal have confirmed the scare zone.
What is a Scare Zone?
Scare Zones are the part of Halloween Horror Nights that nobody can escape. In certain parts of Universal Studios creatures roam the streets looking for victims.
This year Universal are inviting visitors to The Festival of the Deadliest – an ancient tradition from the depths of where nightmares are born. Remember to pack those spare pants cos here’s what awaits you.
Trick ‘r Treat
Get a proper Halloween education in Universal’s Central Park scare zone inspired by the film Trick ‘r Treat. HHN27 are excited to have Sam visit and make sure we follow the rules of Halloween.
In this zone, you’ll have the opportunity to come face-to-face with several characters from the film, and learn for yourself what happens when you don’t follow the rules.
The Purge returns to the streets of New York but this time Universal’s approach is to create a zone that showed how they think the events of a Purge night might play out in on the streets.
There are some fan favourites returning such as the open auction and a very polite gentleman. There are also some new surprises in store.
Altars of Horror
Near the front gate, on Avenue of the Stars, you’ll find the Altars of Horror.
In this zone, Universal are introducing some of the larger than life characters featured in this year’s houses and letting them have their own scare zone.
Set in a time decades ago, the docks in San Francisco find themselves the victim of an INVASION! Visitors from far beyond have crashed their vessel, and are now wreaking havoc on the streets of San Francisco.
They aren’t just here to destroy; these invaders are also on a mission to learn everything they can about us humans. Careful, or you may find yourself on the experiment table at the mercy of an alien scientist.
Finally, no Halloween Horror Nights would be complete without roaming hordes. This time, it’s the smell of the greasepaint, the roar of the chainsaw. Unhappy with how popular culture has made clowns scary, this grotesque gang of gigglers has risen from the grave determined to show the world that if you want scary clowns, they’re going to make sure you get your worst nightmare.
ACADEMY OF VILLAINS: AFTERLIFE (Show)
The ACADEMY OF VILLAINS: AFTERLIFE will be returning to put on an all-new killer performance. This group of powerhouse artists will make you bear witness to what happens after we leave this life. They’re going to give you one mind-blowing and shocking dance performance that will escort you from this world to the great beyond.
