Tournament quarterfinals: USH's Halloween Horror Nights vs. Mickey's Halloween Party
Published: March 29, 2011 at 9:17 AM
We're heading back to Southern California for this contest, putting two very different Halloween events against each other.
The upper seed goes to Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights, the west coast version of Universal's popular Halloween franchise. While not as large as its Orlando sibling (which has advanced to the semifinals), the Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights offers its own, unique flavor, incorporating the park's famed Studio Tour.
Mickey's Halloween Party moved from California Adventure to Disneyland this year, and became a break-out hit. While Universal's offering the haunts and thrills, Disneyland's serving up a more family-friendly event, with free trick-or-treating throughout the park. Halloween-themed fireworks and a parade add to the show, which also features the fan-favorite Haunted Mansion Holiday.
