This year's slogan Horror Comes Home is right! Horror or should I say Halloween Horror Nights is done best at Universal Studios!
This event is not for the faint-hearted or people who scare easily!
This is a PG-13 event, a event that the scareactors, really do try to scare you. No Kidding! When you least expect it, you'll get scared, they watch you & bam they get you!
I just laugh at them. (I wonder if that makes them mad?) LOL!
The lights are shut off, and it is like one big haunted house in the darkness, since you walk to the houses via scare zones, where again you can get scared!
At certain times I saw people scream hysterically & run by me yes even grown men. LOL! That cracks me up, where in the heck are the going to go?
Jack the Clown, the Caretaker, the Director, and the Storyteller have come back, you remember them from past HHN events, well they have become the icons of HHN Sweet 16. You see them everywhere!
There are 7 haunted houses! These houses revisited from past HHN events are done better this time around!! The houses are: The Dugeon of Terror"- the Storyteller's house, People Under the Stairs, Psycho Path The Return Of Norman Bates,Run -Hostile Territory, Scream House Resurrection- the Caretaker's house, Psychoscareapy Maxium Madness -Jack's house, All Night Die In Take Two -the Directors house. I will not give you descriptions of the houses, if you want to read descriptions go to: http://www.halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando/dungeon.html
Are you game enough to visit all 7 houses?? I did!! My favorite house was Scream House Resurrection- the Caretaker's house!!;-)
I did actually get startled once during the night, In the Scream House, I looked to my left then to my front & the Caretaker was right in front of me I was like wow! I said to the Caretaker "OH you got me Caretaker", he sorta cracked a slight smile! And well Jack tried to scare me I started laughing and did not watch where I was walking tripped and started to fall, Jack caught me!;-)
The scare zones are Deadtropolis Zombie Seige (NY Street area) it's "Us the living" & "Them the zombies" in this zone, Harvest of the Souls the bizzare dwell in this zone that is lit by flickering lanterns (next to lagoon & around animal's stage area), Horror Comes Home where past HHN characters terrorize you (by terminator), and Blood Masquerade vampires call you (by Shrek). I liked Harvest of the Souls the best, it was eerie.
Please keep in mind you have to walk to the houses, well everything via these scare zones!
There are 2 live shows including a all new Bill & Ted Adventure which was so funny the best one I think ever, & the Arrival with Darkness his minions Jack, the Caretaker, the Director, and the Storyteller!
In the lagoon the Sweet 16 film featuring the director, Jack, The Caretaker & The Storyteller plays.
Rides that I noticed that were open, Revenge of the Mummy, Men In Black, Twister, Jaws (it is different in the dark) & Terminator.
But you don't go To Halloween Horror Nights for the rides you go for the Haunted Houses!!
Great job Universal this HHN -Sweet 16, it ROCKED!!
