Florida News: Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights starts September 21 for 25 nights

Whether you’re trying to escape gargoyles from Gothic and walkers from the Walking Dead, or survive the desolate town of Silent Hill and the monsters in House of Horrors, the horrific creatures at Halloween Horror Nights could very well give you nightmares. To top it off, there is a new and reinvented street experience to assist in scaring the wits out of you if  haunted mazes and “scareactors” aren’t enough. Here’s a sense of what is in store for you at the Haunted Houses:

Penn & Teller New(kd) Las Vegas

The story here is that bad boys Penn & Teller have covered Las Vegas in nuclear ooze. If you dare venture in the 3D New Vegas, you may want to escape the radioactive green goo before it’s too late!

Alice Cooper – Welcome To My Nightmare

If rocker Alice Cooper’s songs aren’t twisted enough, journey into the iconic character, Steven’s mind, where shock and horror span the four decades of Cooper’s music.

Dead End

Where do perception and reality collide? If you wander into Dead End, rumors about the old Hartford Mansion in Carey, Ohio become reality with creepy apparitions.

Live Shows

If you want to bring things down just a bit, you can watch the excellent dudes in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure or the 20 Penny Circus “Magic For People With Questionable Taste” show.
