Top 5 Ways To Survive Hollywood Horror Nights

If you’ve been to Halloween Horror Nights before, you know how popular it is. If you’ve never been, the people come out in hoards.

The-Walking-Dead_11

So, to help you make the most of your limited time on earth here, here are a few tips to help you scream your way through the night.

1. Visit the first or the last Bill & Ted Show of the night.
These shows are the easiest to access—and are just as funny as every other show.

2. Come early and stay late.
Wait times are always busiest during the middle of the event. My suggestion is:
Hit the shows first, then the original content houses, then the name-brand houses towards the end of the night.

Giggles-Gore-Inc._31

3. Specifically, visit Giggles & Gore and Roanoke early.
The big name houses are usually slammed right at event open, while the original content houses have shorter lines. Giggles & Gore and Roanoke are two seriously disturbing houses.

4. Take advantage of waiting areas with your park-to-park ticket.
If you’re here during the day or have an Annual Pass, and you’re staying for Halloween Horror Nights, you’ll definitely want to use the waiting areas. This lets you stay in the park after the front gates are closed between daytime activities and the evening’s fun.

One of the best waiting areas to use is the one between Disaster and Fear Factor Live stage. There’s plenty of space, it isn’t as crowded as other waiting areas, and you get access to the back of park houses first.

Bayou-of-Blood-Street-Experience1

5. Hop on you favorite ride!
Wait times on most rides and attractions are generally much lower than during regular park hours. I know, I know: you’re here for the scares! But if you’re looking to get in a quick thrill between houses, it’s the perfect time to hop on Revenge of the Mummy, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, or defend the earth against giant, rampaging robots. You know, the usual.

Universal Orlando To Add 5th Resort Sapphire Falls in 2016

Universal and Loews Hotels & Resorts have announced plans for a 5th hotel to be added to Universal Orlando, Sapphire Falls Resort to open in 2016.

resources_digitalassets_Sapphire-Falls-Rendering_1

Located in between the Royal Pacific Resort and the newly-opened Cabana Bay Beach Resort, the new resort will be a colorful Caribbean hideaway built around a lush, tropical lagoon and towering waterfall.

Sapphire Falls will add 1,000 rooms, including 77 suites, which will bring the number of on-site hotel rooms at Universal Orlando to 5,200. Earlier this Summer, Universal announced plans to expand on the adjacent Royal Pacific Resort, which will see the addition of larger meeting and event space.

The expected price point for the hotel should fall between Cabana Bay Beach Resort and Royal Pacific, but that is solely based on speculation and not confirmed by Universal Orlando at this time.

resources_digitalassets_Sapphire-Falls-Rendering_2

Inspired by the picturesque rivers and waterfalls of the Caribbean, Loews Sapphire Falls will immerse guests in a highly themed resort environment using traditional island styling with modern touches. A resort-style pool with a water slide, children’s play area, sand beach and fire pit will help form a central courtyard and will be surrounded by the hotel’s guest rooms. There will be water taxi and shuttle access to all of the entertainment and dining options throughout Universal Orlando Resort, however it will not include the Express Pass benefit, similar to the Cabana Bay Beach Resort.

“Loews Sapphire Falls Resort will be every bit as distinctive as the other four on-site hotels and will offer a new option to families looking for a truly special Orlando vacation,” says Jonathan Tisch, Chairman of Loews Hotels & Resorts.  “We are excited to continue our growth plans at Loews Hotels by building another hotel with our long-standing partners at Universal Orlando.”

“We look forward to bringing them yet another incredibly themed experience with the opening of Loews Sapphire Falls Resort,” said Tom Williams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Universal Parks & Resorts.  “Our guests repeatedly tell us that our Universal Orlando on-site hotels provide them a completely immersive vacation experience from the moment they enter our hotels and are transported to another place.”

The new hotel will be full service. Amenities will include Early Park Admission to Universal’s theme parks, a full-service restaurant with scenic views and outdoor dining, a themed lobby lounge, poolside bar and grill, quick-service marketplace, valet service and a fitness center. Booking information and pricing will be announced at a later date, however reservations are slated to begin around the Spring 2015.

aRG1_3921

From the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman comes a story of a young orphan boy named Eggs raised by a new breed of family called The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures!

aRG1_3571

The Boxtrolls make daily appearances at the Character Party Zone located just outside The Horror Make-Up Show in Universal Studios. Check your park map for that day’s schedule, but they’re usually out there at 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 4:30pm, 5:30pm and 6:30pm through September 26.

New Street Experiences At Halloween Horror Nights

Halloween Horror Nights’ Show Director Lora Wallace revealed some of the ghastly details about the chilling new street experiences at Universal Orlando Resort‘s premier Halloween experience. 

biohazard_hhn2012

Original Street Experience – MASKerade; Unstitched

The whole concept is that these people are trapped in an old time period—their skin is falling off, they have stitched their skin back to their faces, but much of it is still peeling off. What I love about the concept is that it is like you’re entering this really surreal dance, but it is very terrifying at the same time.

There is wax holding their skin on, some are sewing their skin back on but they are doing it very poorly, and there are some whose skin is still detached.

It is grand in scale—there are elements above your head while this off-putting yet harsh waltz music plays. Everyone is moving in a really surreal and creepy dance. There is beauty along with the disgust.

resources-digitalassets-Halloween-Horror-Nights-1-1-1170x731

Original Street Experience – Bayou of Blood

Our high priestess is crazy-evil and in a trance, doing numerous spells and sacrifices to get the ultimate power in her. Because she has made these sacrifices, many other voodoo practitioners in the area have come and they are squatting outside of her shack. They feel if they make sacrifices to her, they will get some of that power when she makes the ultimate sacrifice.

You’re going to see her sacrifice someone right in front of you…you will see every gory detail of this ultimate sacrifice. But that’s not the end—once you get past the sacrifice and the high priestess’ shack, you enter into the area inhabited by the voodoo squatters…and they are all looking for something or someone to sacrifice.

os-halloween-horror-nights-22-universal-orland-028

Halloween Horror Nights annually draws hundreds of thousands of horror fans from around the globe. Tony Timpone, Editor of Fangoria Magazine, said, “After visiting scream parks all across the U.S. for the last 20 years, I can easily say that Universal’s is the best in the business… Halloween Horror Nights is the ultimate Halloween experience.”

On select nights September 19 – November 1, your worst nightmares will take shape as Universal Studios Florida theme park is transformed into the award-winning Halloween Horror Nights. See if you can survive all-new haunted houses, spine-chilling street experiences, outrageous live shows, and more. There’s no better way to “end” your day at Universal Orlando than with the winner of Amusement Today’s “Best Halloween Event” Golden Ticket award.
