At Terror Time, we are elated that our favorite holiday is right around the corner. With the settling of the sun, the crisp tingle in the air and darkness ensuing, it is only appropriate that we talk Halloween.
Halloween Horror Nights is a must for all horror fans. The exhilaration that hangs in the air as you hear the chainsaw revving up is truly one of the most delightful sounds you will hear. Each year the team behind this coveted event continues to amaze me with their lineup.
Terror Time has reported on additions as they were announced and as Universal continues to surprise us with added attractions, this lineup is by no means final. Halloween Horror Nights will showcase seven haunted mazes, four scare zones and a show on select nights from Sept. 16 to Nov. 5.
Here is what guests can experience thus far.
TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: BLOOD BROTHERS
FREDDY VS JASON
AMERICAN HORROR STORY
HALLOWEEN: HELL COMES TO HADDONFIELD
In addition, Universal has a permanent maze in place for The Walking Dead for all guests that will be open year long. The maze features a mixture between animatronic zombies as well as over twenty four scare actors waiting for some new flesh. See how the maze has come to life with commentary from executive producer/director Greg Nicotero.
If you follow updates by our friends at Crypt TV, you might notice a certain clown lurking through Hollywood. Dubbed “Hollywood Harry,” this sinister clown has come to take over the Terror Tram. As the story goes, Harold Kappowitz was once Koodles the Clown, a friendly figure that starred in his own television show. However, Hollywood Harry was was exiled from the industry and has embarked on a journey to terrorize guests at Universal Studios Hollywood. But, don’t just expect one clown, Harry has formed a clown posse that will surely tantalize anyone suffering from Coulrophobia. The story was developed by horror guru, Eli Roth.
SCAREZONE: THE PURGE
The park will have four Scarezone’s that will completely cater to the THE PURGE. Get ready for the masked scare actors ready to take their own form of justice.
The most recent addition to come from Universal Horror Nights is the addition of the popular dance group Jabbawockeez. The addition comes in the form of the groups’ return by popular demand.
All in all, the lineup is pretty stellar to say the least. This iconic event is one I am looking forward to for sure! With the halloween spirit just looming in the air, how could you not get excited!
