Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights = Fear-Filled Fun

Universal Orlando Halloween Horror Nights

Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights recently worked with Two Traveling Moms (my other site), to put together a fear-filled event called “Facing Fears Together”.

Friends at HHN 24

Ten bloggers and their plus one headed to the nations scariest event to take on evil clowns, zombies, creepy dolls, vampires, and much more. Let me just say, before I go on, that I am a big scaredy cat, so what possessed Mellisa and I to put together a scary event is beyond me….but I am so glad we did! What better way to take on this premiere event than with our closest friends and/or family!

Halloween Horror Night Creative Director Michael Aiello

Before we got our scare on, we had a chance to meet with creative director, Michael Aiello, who has been part of making Halloween Horror Nights go from concept to reality for quite some time now. While I paid attention and learned quite a bit, it was slightly hard to concentrate while I had these two staring me down…

To hear how they come up with what they are going to use in Halloween Horror Nights to finding out planning starts as early as February was amazing. So much work goes into making this event into what it is! The amount of scare actors hired is astronomical, but once I was finished with my night of Horror, I could understand why. I kind of want to be a scare actor myself. After a quick group photo and a photo showcasing our AWESOME RIP tour guides it was time to get our scare on!

The RIP tour is a must do, if you are willing to spend. You get info and backstory on the houses, the scare zones, and the shows, as well as a special RIP bar, for a quick drink to quench thirst (or calm nerves) in the office area you usually over look at the MIB ride!

The houses were beyond what I could imagine. Scary isn’t even the world I would use….terrifying would probably be appropiate. With EIGHT houses, there is something that will scare even the bravest of us.

Halloween Horror night houses

The eight houses were: Giggles and Gore, Inc., Dollhouse of The Damned, Halloween, AVP: Alien vs. Predator, Dracula Untold, The Walking Dead, From Dusk Til Dawn, and Roanoke-Cannibal Colony.  The houses were terrifying.  I am not going to break them down here, but you can read all about the creep factor of each house in my post “How Scary Are The Houses at Halloween Horror Nights“.  I will say I left the event with very little voice left.  Here’s a little sneak peek at the outside of Halloween, Dollhouse of the Damned, and Giggles and Gore, Inc.

As part of Halloween Horror Nights, you not only have the chance to get your wits scared out of you as you walk through the mazes, but also through the park to each house, thanks to scare zones.  And for those who need a bit of a break from scaring, there are some great shows you will want to catch!

Halloween Horror Night Shows and Street Experiences

The shows this year are The Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute.  Perfectly cast, this was true to the movie as the talent performs all the major songs from the show.  I was up doing the time warp myself.  This show is great, because it has such a huge fan base being a cult classic, it was hysterical as the fans joined in.

The other show, this year, is Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Journey.  Ladies and gentlemen bring a paper towel, because you may be wiping up some drool.  The talent in this show, you can not tear your eyes away from….they are hot, hot, hot.  We watch as Bill and Ted try to find out why people are dying.  Poking fun at celebrities, this show had me cracking up…and unable to tear my eyes away from “Zac Efron”.  Both shows are very adult in nature, so I would forgo these if you have children with you.

Last, but definitely not least, are the scare zones.  They are called scare zones for a reason.  I found myself screaming and being scared half to death through the scare zones.  This year the scare zones are: The Purge Anarchy, Face Off, Bayou of Blood, and MASKerade.  Based on the movie, The Purge: Anarchy, is a zone where you will find crime allowed for 24 hours.  Watch as people are taken to be “purged”…and get legitimately creeped out by the masks they where.    Face Off is based on the popular show, this section really amazed me, as the costumes are made by people from the show.  In Bayou of Blood, you’ll come into contact with a voodoo queen and may even see a sacrifice ritual.  Last is Maskerade: Unstitched.  Picture yourself at a ball of the dead and that’s what you are walking into for this street experience.  If you need to calm your nerves you can pick up an IV bag drink along the way!

Here is a little video I took while at HHN 24, to give you a glimpse into a couple of happenings:

Everything is so well done at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights.  It truly is a terrifying experience.  Even though I was scared out of my mind, I was in awe of the massive amount of work and detail that goes into this event.  It truly is amazing.  I am already counting the  days until  I can go next year and see just how they are going to top this year!!  Which part of Halloween Horror Nights do you think would scare you the most??
