It’s That Time of Year Again and Total Orlando are Beyond Excited
It’s time to start getting excited guys! Halloween Horror Nights is almost upon us! Just take a look around Universal and you will see the decorating is well underway.
There is so much to talk about! However, I wanted to focus on one of the things we love the most about Universal’s Horror Nights, The Scare Zones!
The Scare Zones for 2017
The scare zones are so important, because they set the whole atmosphere of the park. This is always expertly done by Universal who get 100% for theming, then add to that the very talented scare actors, and you have one of the scariest events in the world at Halloween time. The scare zones are there to put guests on edge before entering any one of the terrifying houses.
The scare zones will be one of the first encounters guests will have upon entering the park and one of the last on leaving. It’s almost like Universal don’t want you to sleep at night!
Unlike the houses there is absolutely no escaping the scare zones, each and every one has been strategically placed around the park to literally scare the life out of you nearly every step of the way!
What Do Universal Have In Store For Us This Year
The Purge – New York Streets
One of the most talked about horror movies of modern day. Guests can expect to come up against some of the most memorable scenarios from the ever popular movie.
- A clean up crew who have been deployed to clean the streets after the deadly purge complete with woodchipper
- The auction
- The very polite gentleman
Trick ‘r Treat – Central Park
Based on the 2007 movie directed by Michael Dougherty. We have one important question for you! Dare you unfollow the rules? We very much doubt it after Sam has explained them to you! For those of you who don’t know Sam is a demonic pumpkin creature who is innocently dressed as a trick or treater, don’t worry, it won’t be long before you realize he is no regular trick or treater!
Altars of Horror – Avenue of The Stars
The fear starts right from the beginning as the scare zone is located right as you enter through the front gates. For the first time ever Universal have unleashed some of their most deadly characters from their scare houses and given them free reign to terrorize each and every guest.
If you are scared of clowns this zone is going to be your worst nightmare. The giggling hordes have taken it upon themselves to dress as clowns for this years event. Our best advice would be, if you hear a chainsaw, make a run for it!
Invasion – San Francisco
Are you ready to walk through the destruction of earth? Alien scientists have turned humans into experiments, you could be next.
