Tickets on sale for Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights

Published: September 1, 2011 at 11:40 AM

Tickets are on sale for the west coast version of Halloween Horror Nights, at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Alice Cooper's Executioner at Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights

This year's event features six mazes:

  • Eli Roth's Hostel: Hunting Season: with props cast from Roth's personal collection of original "Hostel" movie props
  • La Llorona: Villa De Almas Perdidas: Diego Luna helps reimagine the legend that has terrified Mexicans and Latin American children for generations.
  • The Thing: Assimilation: with a 3D sneak of the film
  • Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses: In 3D Zombievision
  • Alice Cooper: Welcome To My Nightmare
  • The Wolfman: The Curse of Talbot Hall

Hollywood's also got something that the older, larger Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando doesn't: Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life, a HHN overlay of the park's famed studio tram tour, based on the latest installment of Wes Craven's Scream film series and featuring "Ghostface Killer."

Tickets are on sale from $37-$62 at Universal's website, including a Front of Line ticket option (priced between $69-$99, and includes event admission), to beat the event's often-long lines for the mazes and tram tour. Prices vary by evening selected.

If this event is anything like Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights, then I have just one piece of advice. Buy the Front of Line Pass. Now. Those will sell out , and they can't sell one to everyone. It's worth every extra penny. In fact, I'd go as far to say that if you don't buy the Front of Line Pass, don't go. You'll be in for a short night/nights of frustration and overcrowding where you'll be lucky if you're not completely exhausted trying to get in two or maybe three houses/mazes, and that's if you immediately get in line and don't fool around taking in the atmosphere or--you know, having fun.

However, if you just like walking around absorbing the atmosphere and don't care about the haunted mazes, then don't buy the Front of Line Pass. Just relax and enjoy the sights and sounds and maybe wait in line for 2 or 3 hours to go through one of the mazes. There's a lot to see even if you don't go into the haunted houses.

Without the Saw maze from last year, I don't think I want to go to Universal's Halloween themed park this year.

Anybody know if Eli Roth is actually conceptualizing his attraction, or is the name just used to draw people in?

"...featuring Ghostface Killer."

And will the other members of the Wu-Tang Clan be present?
