Some big announcements from Universal Studios today for Halloween Horror Nights 28!
Horror inspired by the 80’s will invade HHN28 this year! Long rumored an speculated on via our forums, this year will feature an 80’s theme! Along with the already announced Houses, Stranger Things, Trick ‘R Treat, and Dead Exposure: Patient Zero we learned that this year will feature more houses than ever before! That means we’ll get 10 houses this year at HHN28!
We also learned 3 of the 5 Scarezones that we’ll get to witness! Do you think the images for The Harvest and Twisted Traditions are reversed based off the descriptions? Let us know in our forums!
An old barn is the setting of every kind of horror. Its walls are decorated with ominous objects and images from each house, hinting at the horrors to come. This barn is not as abandoned as it initially seems, and by the time you realize what lies within, it will be too late. Foul creatures lurk within, ready for a harvest of flesh and screams. Will you survive the reaping?
Before the countdown to midnight has started, it’s clear this party has already been crashed, and the streets are running red with blood. You’ll enter what looks to be your typical New Year’s Eve bash until it’s too late. As the ball drops, fanged punks and big-haired vamps will start their feeding frenzy.
Travel through the forest of Central Park where an ancient evil has been awakened. Halloween has been transformed into an abomination with rotting pumpkins fused with decaying human flesh. Try and escape the grasps of these fetid beings, with nothing but the light from rotting jack o’ lanterns to guide you.
Also returning this year to Halloween Horror Nights will be the powerhouse dance crew, Academy of Villains! This year’s performance will be taken to the next level with an all-new show jam packed with mind-bending entertainment. Stay tuned for more details. We can’t wait for this!
You can experience all of the scares and more for 34 select nights starting Sept. 14 – Nov. 3. All tickets and vacation packages are on-sale now, and there are plenty of options to fit your horror-filled needs.
