Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios


~ Pics from last year ~

It’s that time of the year again where everything that is evil is fun again. That also means that Universal Studios Hollywood is ready to scare the crap outta you with their horror nights. There’s nothing like some pig faced, seven foot goliath scaring the crap out of you with a chain saw buzzing over his head. Yes, Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year. I know this has nothing to do with the Eastside, but stay with me on this one.


Last year the scaremazes based on the Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm St and Texas Chain Saw Massacre movies gave everyone a good scare. We can all use a good scare or a good laugh from watching people get scare. For this year, the movies Saw, Halloween, My Bloody Valentine, Shaun of the Dead and Child’s Play. They’re also including some lives shows based on the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure. Not only that but you’ll be able to go on all the regular rides at night with special twist to them and walk around the Halloween’ed out back lot while riding the terror tram. This will all be ongoing every weekend starting this Friday until Halloween. Event dates are: October 2-3, 9-11, 15-18, 23-25, 28-31. It starts off at 7:00 p.m.; closing hours vary by night throughout the event. You can also get discounted tickets by going to goldstar. Man I love that site :-) If anything else, it’s a great date night because chances are your date will get freaked out and run into your arms. Strangers will also be running into your arms too. trust me on this.

  1. Ive been to Universal for Horror Nights – a couple times in the last 8 years.
    I gotta say it does not compare to the grand daddy that is Knott’s Scary Farm aka Knott’s Merry Farm aka Snoopy’s crib aka Knott’s Berry Farm.
    I think because Universal is so big and spread out its not easy rather quite hard to carry the whole theme completely.
    Knott’s is smaller and compact so they can make a better presentation and therefore a better experience.

    But they got to join the band wagon- if you can’t beat them-join them, as Disneyland has been doing these last couple years.

  2. This is the first halloween (me and mt wife’s favorite holiday) where we have a house to decorate. I will use thes flics as notes when we are building our ultimate horror house. i am gathering the old clothes to make bodies from as we speak!
