Are Universal's Halloween Horror Nights 24 Its Scariest Yet?
We ventured over to Universal Orlando Resort's amazing Halloween Horror Nights experience, and we barely survived...
Stepping into the world of your favourite movies and walking around in the characters' shoes is pretty much a dream come true. If it’s a horror film you want to creep around in, there’s no better place than Universal Studios.
They’ve been putting the heebie jeebies up visitors for twenty four years with their Halloween Horror Nights, a yearly fright-fest where classic and modern horror phenomena take over the soundstages to terrorise the crowds in search of a good scare. Even the streets are scare-ified, filled with 'scare actors' ranging from chainsaw-toting hooligans from The Purge to voodoo priestesses from the deepest Louisiana bayous.
Oh, and during the opening Scare-mony, visitors have to run past the Purge anarchists like it's the most terrifying version of Bulldog ever played. Watch out for machetes.
Check out our terrifying gallery of the mazes below.
If you need to calm down, or horror just simply isn’t your thing, there’s plenty to enjoy in the rest of the park. From sipping Duff Beer in Moe’s Tavern to taking the train to Hogwarts (protip: take the train in both directions - it’s simply magical), there are so many attractions to make you feel like you’ve stepped into your favourite films and TV shows. Don’t forget to explore the night life on the Universal Citywalk. There’s fine dining and world class entertainment to enjoy, though if you fancy a really entertaining night out there’s nothing better than belting your favourite karaoke number at the Rising Star, complete with live band. http://www.universalorlando.co.uk
