September 22, 2012 – I’ll cut to the chase: people love Halloween Horror Nights – and for a good reason.
We were lucky enough to be invited to the opening night of this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood, and let me tell you that I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. But initial impressions aside, I have to head back up to Universal in a few hours for another night, so I’ll let the pictures mostly speak for themselves – and just so you know, we’ll be focusing on the Eyegore Awards, the park entrance and the Terror Tram. More updates to come.
…and so it begins.
They’re not kidding. Purchase your tickets online, and you can save upwards of 20 dollars. No joke.
Let’s move on to the old Wild West arena – now home to the Walking Dead: Dead Inside.
Nothing really much to see here.
Moving on to Bill and Ted…
They’ve installed temporary screens in the queue showing clips from past Bill and Ted shows. Interesting addition.
Continuing on, it looks like London Street has been transformed into “Toyz.”
It’s a horse.
So if that’s what portions of Halloween Horror Nights look like during the day, let’s see what they look like at night. But let’s briefly go over the Eyegore Awards first.
Look closely. You might recognize some individuals.
Again, be sure to order your tickets online. Last time I checked, ticket prices started at around 44 dollars on Universal’s official website.
But now let’s move over to the park entrance, and see what that looks like.
I’m expecting fire like last year…
OMG! Fireballs! I love fireballs!
Up next: Terror Tram – Invaded by The Walking Dead. This will be fun.
Not looking forward to what lies ahead.
Not really. But go on Studio Tour sign.
Here we go.
BOGE BOGE BOGE!
Hey now. That’s not very nice.
A campsite. They must be nice people.
Nevermind. Spoke too soon.
They’re just hanging out.
The Bates Motel. I could use a shower.
…and now, we head back.
That’s it for the Eyegore Awards and Terror Tram. Stay tuned for more photos from all the mazes at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.
