It’s that time of year again in Los Angeles: time to pay to be scared out of your mind! LA is a great place to celebrate the spooky holiday with events both cultural and fantastical. One of the most memorable ways to commemorate Halloween is to visit Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights. The most brilliant and sickest minds in horror have devised five mazes based on pop culture favorites to provide a terrifying Halloween experience.
This year there are five new mazes filled with your deepest fears:
- The Walking Dead: Dead Inside
- Welcome to Silent Hill
- The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Saw is the Law
- Alice Cooper Goes to Hell 3D
- Universal Monsters Remix
The La Llorona: La Cazadora de los Ninos maze will be back this year by popular demand with a brand new ending. The Terror Tram will bring the Zombie Apocalypse of the South to the West Coast’s famous Universal backlot with hordes of “Walkers.” The dead have an insatiable hunger for human flesh and the survivors are hunting them down. It’s every man for himself in this backlot, which means you need to watch out on the Terror Tram!
If the mazes are not enough to scare you away, you can visit the four scare zones to get your teeth chattering. Encounter The Bogeyman and Nurses of Silent Hill towering over your body. You may think the Toy Shop will be a welcome break from terrors, but watch out for the Evil Toy Maker! Visit a quaint European fishing village, but don’t expect to rest, for it is haunted by a coven of blood-thirsty witches! Finally, Killer Klownz will take over the Big Apple. Don’t forget to check out the Transformers, Revenge of the Mummy, Jurassic Park or Simpsons Rides for more thrills.
Halloween Horror Nights are on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and select Thursdays starting September 21, including, of course, October 31. General Admission is $46 online and $66 at the gate. Discounted nights are available. You can also by a Front of the Line pass to cut to the front of each maze, ride and Terror Tram for $79. For more ticket information, click here.
