As a frequent goer to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood each year, there’s always one maze that I have at the top of my wish list: The Exorcist. And each year I’m disappointed, as it’s never announced that Regan and her split pea soup will be blessing us with their presence in maze form. Until now!
Awwwww yeah! I can already hear the ‘Tubular Bells’ theme music now. All I keep saying to myself after this was announced yesterday is “Please don’t fuck this up HHH, please don’t fuck this up!” But yes, it’s out there that The Exorcist will become a maze at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at both the Hollywood and Orlando locations. And Orlando gets a Texas Chainsaw Massacre maze too, so they’re 2 for 2 so far.
One thing that I love about their mazes is the incredible detail that’s put into them, so expect to see a lot of great visuals and possibly smell some green vomit as well. I would say it’s a safe bet that we’ll get a spinning head or two in addition to everything else. Maybe a bloody crucifix thrown in for good measure? We shall see. Look for Universal to announce more mazes in the coming months (this was announced pretty early), and if you go this year then I would highly suggest buying Front Of The Line passes!
Going to a haunted house in September is a bit like drinking egg nog in October – it doesn’t quite feel the same. But when ‘front of the line’ tickets to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights went on sale last month and were close to $100 cheaper for September than October, that’s pretty much a no-brainer. Regardless of the September aspect, once again Universal didn’t disappoint (well, except in a few spots) and if you read on I’ll give you my thoughts on all of the madness! Continue reading →
Alright! October 1st! The official start of October and more importantly, the official start to the month of Halloween. And what better way to get the taste of All Hallow’s Eve into your mouth than with some footage from Universal’s Halloween Horror Night’s mazes in Hollywood. So now even if you don’t live in Southern California, you too can experience the fun without having to stand in 2 hour lines and smell everyone’s bad body odor. Sadly, I won’t be able to attend this year because they decided to rape everyone and jack the prices up to a ridiculous amount. But thanks to Dan over at Theme Park HD, you and me can enjoy the maze walkthroughs of The Evil Dead, Insidious, and more!
Now, to see ALL of the mazes and Scare Zones from this year’s event in Hollywood (in regular and night vision), you can click HERE. But below are some of my favorites that caught my eye and I’m going to throw in the American Werewolf In London maze from the Orlando’s Universal Studios experience because it just looks so awesome. Word is that John Landis was heavily involved in that one and you can tell. So let’s get into the Halloween spirit everybody – there are still 30 more days to celebrate. Let’s get fucked up on some candy corn!
