The 2012 theme park Halloween season kicks off tonight
Published: September 21, 2012 at 9:28 AM
Several major Halloween events kick off tonight, including Universal's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood, and Halloween Haunt at Knott's "Scary" Farm.
Universal Orlando sent me this lovely memento to promote this year's Halloween Horror Nights. You had to pull off the hairy scalp, open the skull, and dig your fingers into the squishy brain to retrieve a USB drive with the video press release. My 12-year-old son loved it.
We've got pages for you to upload photos and submit reviews for all of the Halloween events at top theme parks:
- Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida
- Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood
- Halloween Haunt at Knott's Berry Farm
- Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa opens in previews tonight, with an official opening on Sept. 27.
For more child-friendly Halloween events, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has started already at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland kicks off next weekend.
Remember that Halloween events typically get better as the month goes on, as scareactors get more experience with their roles, crowds get bigger and the holiday approaches. But if you'll be attending any of these events this weekend, I'm sure your fellow Theme Park Insider readers would love to hear your early take on how the parks did this year.
