Last Friday, Universal Studios began their annual ritual of terror that is Halloween Horror Nights. They have managed to create an atmosphere that really gets under your skin; one in which you are forced to endure nightmarish creatures everywhere you turn. The sights, sounds, and even smells all combine to create an overwhelming feeling of unease. Of course, there are several terrifying and disturbing mazes, but the fear isn’t contained within those walls. Everywhere you turn, you are surrounded by evil. Horrid creatures lurking in every corner, all with the same goal…to scare the hell out of you.
Universal has updated some of their classic mazes, including those based on Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, while introducing new material such as a House of 1000 Corpses maze and an all new Terror Tram featuring Chucky. There is also a disturbingly detailed and elaborate maze based on the Saw films. All of the rides are open during this event, including the all new King Kong 360 degree experience, as well as Jurassic Park In the Dark. Utilizing all the resources that a working film studio has at it’s disposal, Universal has once again upped the ante for all other parks. This is the most terrifying Halloween event in Southern California. Don’t miss it.
