Halloween Horror Nights now spooking it up in Orlando

If you're in Orlando, FL and looking for a good scare, you might want to head over to Universal Studios- Halloween Horror Nights 22 is now accepting victims guests!

This is far and away one of the coolest haunted attractions I've ever heard of. Universal has entire attractions based on The Walking Dead and Silent Hill- that's great enough, but then add Bill and Ted (yes, that Bill and Ted) and you've got a winner of epic proportions. Excellent!

AMC’s “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 television series, “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.

Silent HillIn 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.

Penn & Teller New(kd) Las VegasWorld-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.

Alice Cooper – Welcome To My NightmareJourney into the 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.

House of HorrorsThis 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…

Dead EndIf enough people believe in something, perception can become reality. In Carey, Ohio, the perception was that countless horrific acts had occurred in the old Hartford Mansion. The reality was that the curse which befell the house was far worse than any story ever told.
 GothicThe 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.
Legions of HorrorWith 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 feast here.

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.

LIVE SHOWS Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween AdventureParty on as those two most excellent dudes return to skewer the biggest names in entertainment and pop culture.

20 Penny CircusThe 20 Penny Circus brings its “Magic For People With Questionable Taste” to an unsuspecting Halloween Horror Nights audience.
Halloween Horror Nights 22 runs 'select nights' now through October 31st (natch). If you're going to be in the neighborhood and want to pick up some tickets for yourself, click here. You might want to hurry though, as Universal says they usually sell out fast- and with attractions like this, I believe them.
