Revenge of Chucky Scare Zone- Universal Orlando Halloween Horror Nights 2018

Get Ready to Face Chucky, Killer Klowns in the Streets of Halloween Horror Nights 2018

With the announcement of Chucky and Killer Klowns Universal Orlando has done with the final list of its five scare zones for the 2018 Halloween event. So get ready to face the world’s deadliest doll in the Revenge of the Chucky scare zone or the killer klowns with ray guns from the outer space zone. The Harvest, Twisted Traditions and Vamp 85: New Year’s Eve are the remaining three scare zones that will haunt the streets in Halloween Horror Nights as well.

Both Chucky and Killer Klowns are beloved IPs from the 80’s. While Chucky returns to Halloween as a conductor of toy fair-turned-bloodbath, the cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space comes to transform you into a tasty blood-soaked cotton candy. Be prepared to face murderous monkeys, deadly board game, including the world’s deadliest doll in the Revenge of Chucky scare zone. Set at a toy fair that had turned lethal with childhood toys twisted into new nightmares.

Killer Klowns fron Outer Space Scare Zone – Halloween Horror NIghts 2018


Unlike Chucky, the 1980’s cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space is not a series of films. It’s one film that has inhibited a more nostalgic place in the hearts of horror fans. Killer Klowns has been considered as the king of B-flicks of its decade. It features the invasion of aliens in the form of killer klowns with UFOs and popcorn-shooting guns. The same invaders are now in the streets of Halloween Horror Nights as well. Be careful while roaming the park streets. They are stalking you. I’m sure you don’t want to be their next human crops, preserved in the form of a grotesque cotton candy.

The Harvest scare zone replicates a sinister barn, featuring foul and creepy creatures in search of the bloodiest harvest ever. At the Vamp 85: New Year’s Eve scare zone it seems just like a New Year’s Eve party until it’s too late. As the ball drops, your smiles will turn into unstoppable screams. You can’t escape the terrible tortures from a whole slew of creepy elements that descends upon you. The Twisted Tradition scare zone on the other hand puts you in the middle of another most terrifying horror experience with nothing but only the light from rotting Jack-o-lanterns.

When it comes to the haunted houses, there is more of it than before. The 2018 event will have a total of 10 haunted houses to take the spine-chilling experience to the next level. Halloween Horror Nights 2018 is the 28 th annual Halloween event at Universal Orlando. The hard ticketed event, not included with regular universal studios tickets. Visit the universal Orlando Halloween site for event tickets. The event is held on select nights from September 14 through November 3, 2018. This is one of the most intense horror event and as such not recommended for children under 13 years of age. Also costumes and masks are prohibited.

Summer fun with the family at Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Studios Tickets

 

If you can remember all of those summer vacations with mom and dad when you were a kid and having the time of your life, you had a pretty cool childhood. The vacations of the past can be re-lived  and the memories can be passed down now to your kids at Universal Orlando Resort. Venturing off of the Disney plantation in Orlando, one can have a pretty kick butt, action packed vacation minus princesses and talking mice.

Universal has marketed itself as a vacation from the ordinary and for good reason! They have crafted a vacation destination for teens as well as adults but the little ones in the group have not been forgotten. This vacation destination has something for everyone and then some. Now with three parks to escape to, Universal has made their little slice of heaven a weeks plus long getaway!

The one great thing that I personally love about Universal Orlando is that they listen to what their guests want and their ability to offer ticket specials as they see fit. Currently they are 3 extra days free on select tickets and sold through licensed partners like The Official Ticket Center, a local ticket agency that has been in business for over 20 years. Universal Studios tickets and other seasonal specials like this are what can let a family of four take a much needed vacation at a pretty nice discount.

If there was a cherry on top of everything under their umbrella it would have to be their all new Volcano Bay water park. This in my opinion is the Disney water park killer. I have been to them all and Volcano Bay is by far my favourite. If you can’t afford that trip to Bali or Tahiti, this is the next best thing especially if you have a few of their signature drinks to get your mind into the game!
