Last year about this time, I was getting ready for a trip to Orlando, Fla., to see what all they hype is about with Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights.
You can read my story here. Halloween Horror Nights is Universal Studios theme park's annual scare fest. Now in its 23nd year, it is consistently ranked among the best Halloween celebrations in the country. And for good reason: It's not only scary, but highly entertaining, with haunted houses, some open rides (only the scariest) and great shows.
I only wish I could go again this year, because the attractions looks even better than last year's (if that's possible).
First, the Walking Dead area returns, with zombies on the street. You can tour the town of Woodbury or get caught in a prison cell.
As usual, many of the houses are taking their cues from TV and movies. There's a "Resident Evil," "Cabin in the Woods," "An American Werewolf in London," and more.
One of my favorites last year returns, as is tradition. "Bill and Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure" is a pop culture spoof with a little Halloween thrown in. It's hilarious and almost worth the price of admission alone. Also this year, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute" should make for a fun evening.
General admission tickets for a single night are $91.99, and there are hotel packages available. For more on tickets, go here.
