This is the Official thread to discuss the 2012 Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Orlando offerings, haunted houses, scare zones, themes etc.
Here are the OFFICIAL HOUSES so far (I will update this thread as more are announced)
The Walking Dead
"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."
I"n the eerie and desolate town of Silent Hill, ash falls from the sky and the physical laws of nature no longer apply. If you dare to venture into this alternate dimension, there is only one law of nature with which you must concern yourself: survival."
"Journey into legendary rocker Alice Cooper’s twisted mind and witness the natural melding of horror and Cooper’s four decades-long career. Here you will follow Steven, the iconic character from many of Cooper’s works, as you come face to face with a myriad of tormentors who threaten an already-decaying sense of sanity."
"World-renowned magicians Penn & Teller have accidentally nuked Las Vegas, but don’t worry, it’s nothing a fresh coat of paint and a truckload of BS can’t fix! Come on down to New Vegas, where all that glitters isn’t gold, and in fact probably has fatal levels of radioactivity."
House of Horrors
This is no remake. No sequel. No re-imagining. These are Universal’s classic monsters of fear, who have terrified audiences from the Silver Screen. They have been waiting within silver celluloid to be resurrected. The flash of a lightning strike cuts the darkness that surrounds, and terror’s true faces take back what is theirs…
If enough people believe in something, perception can become reality. In Carey, Ohio, the perception was that countless horrific acts had occurred in the old HartfordMansion. The reality was that the curse which befell the house was far worse than any story ever told.
The Catedral de Caementum Animus is, by day, undergoing a building-wide architectural refurbishment. By night, the many stone gargoyles that keep watchful eye over the sanctuary come to life with the mission of protecting this sacred place against intrusion.
NEW – REINVENTED STREET EXPERIENCE
Legions of Horror
With a ripping, clawing and tearing through the concrete beneath Universal Studios come ancient cemetery
Structures, spilling blood-raged, vampiric hordes that span the eras of time, barbaric warriors with a need
to carve flesh from bone and an all-female, chainsaw-wielding prison gang. These and more nightmarish
hellions inhabit every dark corner, foggy recess and shadowed path within the park. Unlike in years past,
there are no boundaries. No safezones. No one escapes.
The force of horror starts with The Iniquitus. Rooted in evil, these are the patrons of death and are the
ones who rose from the cemetery. The Iniquitus are those who summoned the Dark Legions to come and
The dark legions of horror that await are: Vampires – the blood-thirsty from all eras of time, Beasts –
the legendary animal-like figures who prey on the unsuspecting, Warriors – a gang killed in a deadly war that has returned to seek revenge, Prisoners – these deceased chainsaw-wielding female inmates killed in a
women’s prison fire are back… and angry, and Traditionals – the ghosts and goblins of Halloween past
come together to feast.
