EVENT GUIDE COVER:
House #1 Name: Horror In Wax
House Location: Soundstage 20B (SS20B)
House Description: The classic monsters themselves are all here... carved in wax, sculpted in resin and frozen in paraffin... perfectly preserved at the very moment tragedy struck. But this twisted enterprise was not abandoned - instead it became home to a deranged menagerie of the bizarre who lure guests inside for purposes that will become terrifyingly clear.
House #2 Name: Ghost Town
House Location: Soundstage 22 (SS22)
House Description: Strangled by gold fever, the violent town of Lightning Gulch disappeared in a fierce thunderstorm that swallowed up the settlement and all its ill-fated souls. Today there is no trace of the Gulch... except when vicious storms range, once again revealing all of the buildings and the tortured ghosts that lurk in its streets, saloons, and alleyways. Still desperate to protect long lost treasure, these wretched spirits remain blinded by the lust for gold and enraged by greed.
House #3 Name: Horror Nights Nightmares
House Location: Herc & Xena (B44)
House Description: Come face to face with your worst Horror Night Nightmares... The Director, The Caretaker, Eddie, and Jack are all waiting to take you on a little stroll down Memory Lane. Spend a little quality time "behind-the-scenes" with your favorite icon of Halloween Horror Nights past - they're waiting for you on the very sets that made them infamous... up close and this time, it's personal.
House #4 Name: Deadtropolis
House Location: Earthquake Queue (B67)
House Description: Something went wrong... terribly wrong. Genetic engineers bent on unlocking the secrets of longevity instead unlocked a Pandora's Box of horror. There is a fate worse than death and it is quarantined in a cityscape that has been named Deadtropolis... where the undead roam in search of the living and the living cower and hide in fear of their lives.
House #5 Name: Castle Vampyr
House Location: Soundstage 23 (SS23)
House Description: The castle itself is rumored to be the Blood Shrine of an ancient race that is long feared... but of which little is known. With ornamentations gathered from all over the world, Castle Vampyr is said to contain a talisman from each "house" of the breed. And this evil congregation beckons the faithful to gather every thirteen years to renew vows to a dark power that drives their insatiable thirst for immortality.
House #6 Name: Hellgate Prison
House Location: Soundstage 20A (SS20A)
House Description: Warden Robert L. Strickland's monument to himself where paying visitors suddenly find themselves lost and alone inside the penitentiary's cellblocks, corridors, and secret chambers... alone with a prison population of insane inmates, crazed convicts, and convicted criminals with nothing to lose before they walk the "last mile" to sit on top of Old Smokey, the world's most excruciatingly painful electric chair.
House #7 Name: Disorintorium
House Location: Carnage Warehouse (B285/B285A)
House Description: Here hours stretch and reality blends, up is last and everything bends. Front is left and back is night, day is dark and noon is right. The walls are doors and sound is sight where white is dark and black is bright. Straight around the next curved squares, on first last bottom top three stairs, bitter scents are terrible sweet, hearts are tails and heads are feet. Way up slow beneath the loft, far away close is hardly soft. And you always choose and you always win... and you never leave the way you came in.
Scarezone #1 Name: Point of Evil
Scarezone Location: Port of Entry
Scarezone Description: Over the past 13 years, millions and millions have fallen under its irresistible allure. You've journeyed from near and far, inexplicably drawn by a monstrous dark energy that has been building, swirling into a vicious circle that surrounds the epicenter of fear. And now that power erupts in blinding explosions of electricity that flash across the night sky, pulling all toward the ultimate pinnacle of fascination and horror. Feeding on the fear of Halloween Horror Nights guests past and present, Point of Evil "reaches" out with long fingers of Hellfire lightning to drain you of the very last drop of courage and strength. See for yourself where the breaking point lies.
Scarezone #2 Name: Field of Screams
Scarezone Location: Backstage Area Connecting USF & IOA Behind Seuss Landing
Scarezone Description: Stay off the path that is twisted and worn. Where stalks all grow tattered and torn. For all those who do, stay lost and forlorn. Singing forever the Rhyme of the Corn.
Scarezone #3 Name: The Fright Yard
Scarezone Location: Universal Studios Back Lot
Scarezone Description: An ominous industrial landscape of rusty trucks, stacked freight containers, and burning buses, The Fright Yard is infested with the worst society has to offer. You suddenly find yourself caught between "survivor clans" where The Demented lie in wait for The Twisted and both tribes are waiting for you. Armed with chainsaws and flame-throwers, they hide, lurk, and stalk guests in this heavy metal maze. Even with police choppers hovering above, this is a twisted and terrifying turf war that has no rules.
Scarezone #4 Name: Midway of the Bizarre
Scarezone Location: The Boneyard
Scarezone Description: Hurry, hurry, hurry! Step right up and step right in... and get lost in a place where childhood dreams grew up to be nightmares and the nightmares are real. Old carnivals never die... old circuses do not just go away... and old sideshows play on forever in the Midway of the Bizarre. This is the place where the oddities are normal... and YOU are on display for them. Step into the hypnotic light of the midway and your journey is complete - a one way trip to the Breaking Point of no return.
