Hey Thrill Seekers,
This year will be Universal Orlando’s 24th Halloween Horror Nights! The scare spectacular is generally regarded as the daddy of all Halloween nights.
We often get asked if Halloween Horror Nights is really that scary? In a word “yes”… Universal pride themselves on being the biggest and the best, this isn’t Disney people.
To get a good idea you should read Karl Hendrie’s review of last years event or alternatively you can watch this video which gives you a glimpse at what you can expect.
Halloween Horror Nights is a separately ticketed event, which doesn’t come with your normal theme park tickets. Universal offers two types of ticket for entry, they are;
The Universal 2 park bonus Halloween Horror Nights Ticket and the Halloween Horror Nights Frequent Fear Pass.
You can purchase these at Orlando Attraction Tickets or Theme Park Tickets Direct both offer real gate ready tickets.
Hey Thrill Seekers,
I love Halloween Horror Nights! Universal’s premier scare-a-thon is packed full of interesting and creative images, ideas and stories. We first starting working closely with Universal for HHN last year, we were very privileged to be at a press conference for the revealing of the American Werewolf in London house attended by none other than the creator himself John Landon and we also had the opportunity to visit Universal and sample Halloween Horror Nights first hand.
Over the upcoming months Universal will slowly reveal how each of the 8 iconic houses will be themed, last year they did this at midnight (USA time) and offered such delights as a Cabin in the Woods and an Evil Dead House.
Today I thought I’d take a punt at 3 houses that might make the 2014 cut. These aren’t confirmed and are simply me taking a guess.
The Chucky franchise spawns generations and in 2013 Universal Pictures release the Curse of Chucky a straight to DVD movie in which Chucky returns to wreak havoc. Its definitely not Oscar material but the legacy of Chucky has caused many a scream in the past.
Imagine walking through a house never knowing when Chucky is going to jump out at you…
Another Universal Pictures 2013 release, this story has the same kind of feel to one of last years houses La Llorona and could be a great fit. The film deals with the story of two young girls abandoned in a forest cabin, fostered by an unknown entity that they fondly call “Mama”, which eventually follows them to their new suburban home after their uncle retrieves them…
Creepy and scary everything a good Halloween Horror Nights House should be. 🙂
Yep I know Universal California had a Purge scare zone in 2013 but the breakout film has a sequel for release in 2014 so perhaps a dedicated house could be on the way to Orlando.
The Purge tells the story set in the future of a wealthy family held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized.
So there we have it my 3 guesses for 8 of the houses we can expect at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights. I’ll keep you posted when we get exact details including pricing.
