Of Halloween Horror Nights

Well, we did it. Mr. Strublay, The Brother-In-Law, and I all went to Universals Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. First things first: To all the actors who got frustrated that I didn't get scared, I'm sorry. All of the haunted Houses were very well done, the makeup alone is worth going for, and the terror tram is extremely cool. Most of it was really good, but it did have its weaknesses. The scare zones were very limited (one, the Silent Hill one in the lower lot, wasn't even active), they relied heavily on gore, and I believe Universal has missed some really great opportunities to do some really amazing stuff like Treehouse Of Horrors takes over the Simpsons Ride.

All in all I highly recommend going.

At the bottom I have posted a Video of the Terror Tram night hike.

Whoville was Hijacked for the Terror Tram, as such there were CDC vehicles and zombies standing about.

Even though the 747 crash is a creepy scene to begin with, adding zombies is scary.

 If I have anything to give you advice on it is this: Go to The Terror Tram FIRST. Then go down to the Lower Lot and move your way to the front.

  When we got there it was a 4o minute wait, and I don't think it was even that long. The wait was 100+ for the rest of the night

Twist: You get kicked off the tram and walk.
Husband wasn't expecting it, I was (from seeing the sets earlier) Both of us were thrilled.

Bates Motel, the one shot I could get, it was cool to be that close to this legendary set.
