Halloween Horror Nights 2017
This past Saturday we went to Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights. This was the last night and it was packed! Just like last year we did the RIP tour and honestly that's the only way that we will go to this event. This year's houses and scare zones did not disappoint.
Being in the RIP group gives us the advantage of not having to wait to enter the park. We check in at a separate place and are allowed right in. We did not have to meet our group for an hour so we walked around to all of the scare zones. The scare zones this year were as follows:
Trick r Treat
Altars of Horror
The Festival of the Deadliest
In the Altar of Horror we found the twins from the Shining! One of my favorite horror movies and book.
The Purge scare zone was pretty scary and so real like. They had bull horns and were trying to initiate people. They also did scenes where they "killed" people.
Invasion! was really neat. They had aliens walking around. Some got really close to you and I had one that kept following me around.
Bryan almost became a victim at The Festival of the Deadliest. Fortunately he survived!
We had to meet our tour group at Cafe La Bamba at 7. They fed us then we met our tour guide and other people that are in our group. Our group got started at 1930. We are not allowed to take pictures inside the houses. This years houses were:
Scarecrow: The Reaping
Ash vs Evil Dead
American Horror Story: Volume 2
Saw: The Games of Jigsaw
Horrors of Blumhouse
There were more houses this year than last year. My favorites were The Shining and Horrors of Blumhouse. The scenes in The Shining were so real like. I loved the bar the most. The Horrors of Blumhouse I loved because it was scenes from Insidious. Bryan's favorites were The Hive and Saw: The Games of Jigsaw. Bryan is a huge fan of the Saw movies. I'll admit that I have not seen them.
We also had VIP seats to Bill and Teds Excellent Halloween Adventure. We are not fans of this show but it's included so we went. It wasn't as bad this year as it was last year. This is the last year that they are doing this show so it'll be interesting to see what replaces it next year.
After we toured all of the houses our tour guide took us on one ride. She chose Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket. I love his roller coaster. She got us straight on with no wait. After that we split up as a group and we wandered around until the park closed.
We went back through the scare zones and took pictures.
Invasion! at night.
Trick r Treat was by far my favorite! I loved all of the lighted pumpkins and characters.
Our RIP card and lanyard is an Express Pass so we did ride The Mummy as well. We were disappointed that they closed Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts early. They also closed Transformers early. One other thing that disappointed us was we were suppose to get one picture with a character. That never happened. We paid a lot for that tour (nearly $500) so it's disappointing when you don't get what you pay for.
We closed the park down at 0100 and stayed in Citywalk for a while and enjoyed a Starbucks. All in all we had a great time and I am looking forward to doing this again next year.
