Step right up, step right up. Come one and all to the most gruesome show on Earth. Often imitated, but never duplicated, the one-of-a-kind Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights tickets are on sale now and a myriad of malevolent mazes await any traveler who dares to enter. Mwah-ha-ha.
Okay, okay, enough of the carnival barker. In all seriousness, this looks to be quite the impressive Halloween creation at Halloween Horror Nights Universal Studios Hollywood. The resume of the maze architects cannot be argued.
The superbeast himself, Rob Zombie and his creation, Rob Zombie’s House of 1,000 Corpses in 3D Zombievision is one of the highlights of the event. I have no idea what the hell 3D Zombievision is, but I know I want to see it!
Or how about the man who single-handedly began the fusion of metal music and horror, Alice Cooper. Alice’s attraction, Alice Cooper: Welcome To My Nightmare is also among the horrific offerings.
If being the creator of Cabin Fever and Hostel isn’t enough to warrant you worthy of designing a maze for Universal Studios, then I don’t know what is. Eli Roth brings us on a tour through his twisted mind with Eli Roth’s Hostel: Hunting Season.
And new this year, director Diego Luna brings an eerie legend to life in La Llorona: Villa De Almas Perdidas (The Weeping Woman: Village of Lost Souls) a maze depicting this chilling tale that has terrorized Latin American children for years.
And this is just the beginning. Additional attractions based on The Thing, Scream 4 and The Wolfman: The Curse of Talbot Hall are included in this collection of horrific attractions.
Tickets are on sale now for Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights and advance purchase is recommended as these nights of debauchery (beginning September 23) sell out quickly. And if you’re a real diva that just needs special treatment, look into Front Line Tickets where you are granted priority entrance at each maze and attraction. Go for it!
