Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights: Get Ready To Scream — Loud

The other day my friend and I were talking about why we both love to be scared. Why do we walk around pitch black mazes where monsters jump out and scare us?  The answer we came up with is that it’s an adrenal rush, yet we know that we’re safe. We’re never in any real danger. So that’s why we go out of our way to find really scary events to attend during the Halloween season. And nothing is more terrifying than ‘Horror Nights at Universal Studios’.

After all, Universal is responsible for some of the scariest television programs, including ‘The Walking Dead’ and “American Horror Story: Roanoke.” Plus, we must not forget that this is the movie studio that invented the horror film genre some 80 years ago. Universal Studios created all of the classic monsters, including Frankenstein, The Wolf Man and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’, ‘Insidious:Beyond the Further’, ‘The Purge’, ‘Saw: The Games of Jigsaw’, ‘Ash vs.Evil Dead’ are just some of their later horror films that have given us the best scares.

“Halloween Horror Nights’ brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse you in a living, breathing, three dimensional world of terror” and I can’t wait to experience them all! There will be 8 terrifying mazes created by the genius mind of John Murdy, that are all based on Universal’s most frightening films and television shows, as well as the Titans of Terror Tram hosted by Chucky, and an all new high energy Jabbawockeez live show. There will also be three new scare zones awaiting you around every dark corner.

Get ready to meet some your favorite characters that have terrified you over the years, including Freddy, Jason and Leatherface. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy the Halloween season.

The Scarefest runs through November 4th. Go to the website to purchase tickets and get discounts. I’d suggest doing it quickly, because online sales are only available while supplies last.
