Halloween Update 2014: Halloween Horror Nights Tix Now On Sale

No Sharknado maze, you're missing out Universal.

Starting this September Universal has 22 select nights for you to get frightened at. Halloween Horror Nights returns from Friday, September 19 through Sunday, November 2, 2014. Tickets are already on sale here.

There's a slate of new mazes, many from Universal properties. Many that seem like they'll be very weird to go through.

Universal managed to do some impressive mazes last Halloween. They're bring back the Walking Dead as one of them. This time it's based on the fourth season.

"The bone-chilling maze will place guests at the heart of a harrowing journey to seek sanctuary at Terminus, an elusive destination that promises community for all.  Mirroring the terror that befell the residents of the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by savage walkers, the experience will send guests fleeing from the fallen prison into unknown territory as they stage a desperate battle for survival against flesh-eating walkers and ruthless humans."

The Walking Dead won't leave you at the park you can try out Terror Tram:

"Terror Tram: Invaded by the Walking Dead” will take guests down the daunting path to Terminus, interspersed with landmarks and walkers from Season 4, including the “burned moonshine cabin,” “charred walkers” and “mud walkers.”

From Dusk Till Dawn is a new maze based on Robert Rodriguez’s show of the same name that features “Culebras,” serpent-like vampires who have tormented the Earth for centuries.

Clowns 3D Music by SLASH will feature a original soundtrack from Slash himself.

Based on Universal properties comes: AVP: Alien vs. Predator maze; based on the iconic alien enemies. That should be a weird one to see. An American Werewolf in London, based on the iconic movie.

Then two TTDILA isn't giving its approval on until we see them for ourselves. Dracula Untold:  Reign of Blood, based on yet another take on Dracula, you'd think Universal would get a hint after the TV show was staked. Next we have " Face Off:  In the Flesh, from the SyFy show where make-up artists can make it big.

Scare Zones return to scare women into grabbing their men and screaming, "Why did you bring me?" Mask-a-Raid, chosen by fans this year, features hordes of French aristocrats hungry for blood, they're cannibals. Dark Christmas features a Pagan-themed dark version of the holiday. Skullz scare zone is based on the Wendigo mythology also hungry for human flesh,

A new feature you can add to your order for extra, Front of Line ticket option, which enables guests to enjoy priority access at each “Halloween Horror Nights” maze, Terror Tram and theme park attraction.  Advance purchase is recommended by Universal as event nights will sell out. The Purge Anarchy rounds out the areas as a future America allows one night of all legal crime.

As a complement to the nighttime event, Universal’s most popular rides and attractions will also be open to guests, including” Transformers:  The Ride-3D,” “Jurassic Park—In the Dark,” “The Simpsons Ride” and “Revenge of the Mummy—The Ride.”
