Universal's Halloween Horror Nights 16 draws upon frights of the past
Written by Robert Niles
Just got off the phone for a conference call with Universal Orlando's director of entertainment, TJ Mannarino, who shared some dish about Universal's upcoming Halloween Horror Nights 16.Tweet
Expect to find many familiar sights at this year's event. Halloween Horror Nights returns to its roots this year, literally and figuratively, as the event switches from Islands of Adventure back to its original Universal Studios Florida home. Plus, designers have drawn upon past events for inspiration for this year's mazes and shows.
"Being kinda able to back into the past was actually a lot of fun for the designers because it was, like, 'Okay, how can we take the things that people are familiar with and make them bigger and grander and different?'" Mannarino said.
Mannarino also said that Universal has and will continue to monitor guest surveys and websits feedback (including TPI) for ideas on what to do, or not to do, for future Halloween Horror Nights.
"This event has really grown on its fan and guest support," Mannarino said.
So... let's hear it. You can leave comments about HHN on our Halloween Horror Nights wiki page, or below.
