Scare zones and Shows announced for Halloween Horror Nights 27!

With less than a month until the gates to Halloween Horror Nights 27 open details on this year’s event are starting to roll in a frightening pace.

Today Universal Orlando Resort revealed the theme of this year’s scare zones and announced the second show for Halloween Horror Nights 27.

This year’s scare zones feature:

“Trick ‘r Treat” – Inspired by Michael Dougherty’s film.

“Guests will be thrust into the traditions of Halloween with an authentic showcase to celebrate the haunted holiday. Sam will be lurking in the shadows to strictly enforce the rules of Halloween – and those who disobey will pay the price…”

“The Purge” – Based on “The Purge” movie franchise.

“This gory “scare zone” will feature the return of fan-favorite characters from the film saga and the notorious victim auction whose bidders want nothing more than to exercise their right to Purge.”

“INVASION!” – Aliens highlight this intriguing scare zone.

“Guests will become the grotesque human experiments of fearless alien scientists who continue to plan the preeminent destruction of planet Earth.”

“Altars of Horror” – A compliment to many of the marquee maze in this year’s event.

“Guests will come face-to-face with some of the most horrifying characters found in this year’s assemblage of haunted mazes – based on iconic horror films and terrifying hit TV shows.”

The confirmation of the return of the “Roaming Hordes” has also been included in this morning’s announcement. This year, the hordes have a unified theme:

“Unhappy with how popular culture has made clowns scary, this grotesque gang of gigglers has risen from the grave, determined to show the world that if you want scary clowns, they’re going to make sure you get your worst nightmare.”

In addition to these scare zones and the roaming hordes, Universal Orlando also announced the return of “Academy of Villains” with their all new show “Academy of Villains: Afterlife”, which promises to incorporated elements from additional scare zone “Festival of the Deadliest”.

Halloween Horror Nights 27 will also feature the 26th and final edition of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure.”

With the reveal of the scare zones, could the finale reveal of HHN27 be following closely behind?

If and when it does, we’ll have an instant reaction to the entirely line of HHN27 on The Catacombs of Halloween Horror Nights podcast right on NEOZAZ.com!

Bill and Ted to say “Farewell” to Halloween Horror Nights

After 26 years of entertaining crowds with relentless jabs at and parodies of the year’s pop culture highlights, the popular stage show “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure” will wrap up their epic run at Halloween Horror Nights 27.

“Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure” has been a staple of the annual Halloween Horror Nights event for Universal Orlando since 1992 debuting at “Halloween Horror Nights II”.

The show featured the time traveling, air guitar playing duo Bill and Ted from the “Bill and Ted” movie franchise. Through the use of (often in the form of having been stolen) their time traveling phone booth, each year Bill and Ted would come at odds with a super villain surrounded by evil doers from that year’s Movies, TV, and Music trends.

An equally popular and parodied set of heroes would inevitably appear from the pop culture realm to assist Bill and Ted to over throw the villains and achieve the ultimate victory – a high energy song and dance finale.

I’ve been enjoying “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure” since 1999’s “Halloween Horror Nights IX” and it was my first Halloween Horror Nights attraction ever.  It’s had its ups and downs, some years stronger than others, and the pop culture is flying farther and farther over my head – but, it’s been a part of my “Halloween Horror Nights” experience since my very first visit and it’s going to be a little difficult to imagine the event without Bill and Ted.

But that being said, I am a believer in the idea that “change is good” and I’ve no doubt the creative team behind Halloween Horror Nights did not make this decision lightly and have something in the works that’s going to blow me away!

So rather than lament on this being Bill and Ted’s last year at “Halloween Horror Nights”, I’m going join in celebrating what Bill and Ted brought to the event.  I’m excited to go to that one last party, have fun with the crowds, laugh at the parodies, and with enjoy Bill and Ted’s adventure one more time!

Party on, dudes!

HHN Show Director Charles Gray described a main story element of this Maze in a blog post released on Universal Orlando’s blog earlier today:

We cast the Overlook Hotel as the aggressor and view it as if you have the “shining.” Our goal is to have you constantly doing a double take and give you that, “Did I just see that?” feeling.
