At last year’s Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando, FL, I got to walk through Universal Orlando to experience the haunts, mazes, and scare zones for myself. Overflowing with a wonderful Halloween atmosphere, the park was a smorgasbord of horror goodness for anyone who dared to walk through. My personal favorite experience was walking through the Trick ‘R Treat scare zone, which saw the characters from Michael Dougherty’s film ambling through the crowds while dozens upon dozens of hand-carved pumpkins hung in the trees overhead, their jagged smiles winking and flickering from their light.
This year, that scare zone is transitioning into a full haunted house experience that, “…will transport guests to Warren Valley, Ohio on Halloween night to celebrate the holiday’s dark traditions. Recreating some of the anthology’s most iconic scenes, the disturbing new maze invites brave thrill-seekers to become entwined within the secrets of this sleepy suburban town.”
The description continues by saying, “Guests will experience some of the film’s most grisly scenes and encounter hauntingly familiar characters. They will meander through Mr. Kreeg’s infamous house, watch as college students viciously transform into bloodthirsty werewolves and dismember the town, as well as come face-to-face with Sam – the spirit of Halloween – who readies to punish those who break the holiday’s tradition.”
