'Walking Dead,' 'Silent Hill,' Alice Cooper highlight Universal Studios Hollywood's 2012 Halloween Horror Nights
Written by Robert Niles
We're just a couple of weeks away from the debut of 2012's Halloween Horror Nights. Last week, we reviewed what fans will find at Orlando's version, and today, I got the chance to talk with Creative Director John Murdy about what's in store at Universal Studios Hollywood.Tweet
This year's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood will feature seven mazes:
Visitors also will find four scare zones, including one based on Silent Hill, as well as "Bill & Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure."
Murdy talked with me about what he's looking forward to most at this year's event, why Hollywood's version is unique among Halloween events, and how Universal incorporates so many scareactors into the event:
Halloween Horror Nights opens Sept. 21 and runs for 19 nights, wrapping up on Halloween, Oct. 31. Tickets range from $46 for general admission on selected nights, to up to $199 for the "VIP Experience," including valet parking, Front of Line access, lounge access, food and beverage and a guided tour. Tickets are available on Universal's website.
