Universal Orlando Releases First Teaser for Halloween Horror Nights 24

Around 9pm on Sunday, June 8, Universal Orlando posted this first teaser for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights 24:

Swirling flames, and then the words “It’s Coming #HHN24.”  What’s coming?  But then on the Official Orlando HHN page, a link to the Instagram video is posted with the words, “Don’t fall asleep.”

Flames and not falling asleep… the only horror theme I can think of is A Nightmare on Elm Street. In 2007,  Universal Studios acquired the rights to use several of New Line Cinema‘s characters, including Freddy Krueger, at Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. Does this Instagram post mean Krueger might be returning?

Can you think of any other horror franchise that might deal with fire and not falling asleep? It’s hard to tell with only two clues.

Universal Orlando Announces Evil Dead House for Halloween Horror Nights 23

Halloween Horror Nights, Universal Orlando, Evil DeadLast night on its Facebook page, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando announced the second of the many haunted houses/mazes would be themed to the movie Evil Dead.

Now this does pose the question of whether there will be two horror cabin houses, since Universal already announced the first house would be themed to Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods. But I’m hoping that the Cabin house will be more about the inner workings of the cabin with the elevator of monsters (you know what I’m talking about if you’ve seen the movie).

There are many more houses to be announced, but if you want to get your tickets now, log onto halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando. HHN23 runs select nights September 20 – November 2.

They’ve also released another teaser video about the event:

Penn & Teller 3D Haunted House to Debut at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights XXII

So far, we’ve already announced that Halloween Horror Nights XXII will be taking on Silent Hill, The Walking Dead, and Alice Cooper. Now it’s been revealed that a 3D haunted house designed by illusionists Penn & Teller will debut this year at Universal Studios Orlando for the annual event.

“Penn & Teller New(kd) Las Vegas” will call on the duo’s talents to tell the tale of a dark, dilapidated and radioactive version of Las Vegas. The maze will feature the best of Vegas – showgirls, slot machines, little white wedding chapel, all-you-can-eat buffet, and more – all glowing with a toxic green hue.

That’s right…there will be zombies.

Entertaining audiences for years, Penn & Teller have been performing illusions at The Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for over 10 years. This will be the first time they’ve designed a haunted house for Universal.

Halloween Horror Nights is an after-hours, separate-ticket event. It takes over the entire Universal Studios Orlando theme park with haunted-house mazes, shows and scare zones. It operates 25 select nights from Sept. 21 to Oct. 31, 2012.

Tickets are on sale online at www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com/orlando.

Alice Cooper 3D Maze to Debut at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights XXII

We already announced that Halloween Horror Nights XXII will be taking on Silent Hill and The Walking Dead.

Now it’s been revealed that Alice Cooper’s 3D Maze will debut this year at Universal Studios Orlando for the annual event.

Cooper’s attraction, “Alice Cooper Goes to Hell 3D,” is inspired by unending darkness, eternal torment and unimaginable horrors. To experience this daunting new maze, guests will don 3D glasses for an optimum up close and personal three-dimensional encounter with Alice Cooper’s underworld.

This isn’t the first time Cooper has worked with Universal theme parks. Last year, he designed another popular maze for the Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights event.

Halloween Horror Nights is an after-hours, separate-ticket event. It takes over the entire Universal Studios Orlando theme park with haunted-house mazes, shows and scare zones. It operates 25 select nights from Sept. 21 to Oct. 31, 2012.

Tickets are on sale online at www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com/orlando.

The Walking Dead to Invade Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights XXII

We already announced that Halloween Horror Nights XXII will be taking on the Silent Hill franchise. Now comes word that “The Walking Dead” will also be invading Universal Studios Orlando for the annual event.

The hit AMC television series is loosely based on the comics of the same name, and involves a plot where the entire world seems to be taken over by “walkers” – another name for zombies. The series tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It’s seen from the perspective of a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.

The premise behind this HHNXXII haunted maze is described on the event’s website as:

There is strength in numbers and you must band together to make it through many of the iconic settings made famous by the critically-acclaimed AMC hit, “The Walking Dead.” As the city is crawling with hordes of walkers, the issue of your becoming one of them is not a question of if, but when.

The haunted maze will feature elaborately designed, movie-quality sets that include some of the most iconic locations and scenes from the show. Meanwhile, hordes of undead walkers will bring to life the vicious, hungry, zombies from the show.

I am a big fan of the series and can’t wait to see how Universal brings it to life at the theme park.

Halloween Horror Nights is an after-hours, separate-ticket event. It takes over the entire Universal Studios Orlando theme park with haunted-house mazes, shows and scare zones. It operates 25 select nights from Sept. 21 to Oct. 31, 2012.

Tickets are on sale online at www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com/orlando.

The incorporation of “The Walking Dead” coincides with the upcoming season three, which is due to start airing on AMC on October 14, 2012.

Silent Hill to be Part of Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights XXII

Yesterday, Universal released the first details for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.

Silent Hill, a popular video-game franchise and film, will be incorporated into the  annual theme park event at both the Orlando and Hollywood locations.

While it wasn’t divulged whether it would be a haunted house theme or perhaps something else, the parks will use the Silent Hill characters and environments, such as Pyramid Head, Fog World, Otherworld and the nurses.

This will be the twenty-second year of Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando, and it is an after-hours, separate-ticket event. It takes over the entire Universal Studios theme park with haunted-house mazes, shows and scare zones.

It will run 25 select nights from Sept. 21 to Oct. 31, 2012.

Tickets are on sale online at HalloweenHorrorNights.com/orlando.

The incoporation of Silent Hill coincides with upcoming film sequel, “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D,” which is due in theaters October 26, 2012.
