Scare Zones Return To Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights  | Halloween Horror Nights
Universal Studios has successfully re-captured the scare zone. After a two year absence, scare zones make there way back to Halloween Horror Nights. For the past few years, the traditional scare zone has been missing from Universal Studios' annual haunt event. For Halloween Horror Nights 24, four new scares zones make their premier: The Purge:Anarchy, Bayou of Blood, MASKerade:Unstitched, and Face Off:Into the Flesh.

The Purge: Anarchy

For the next 12 hours all crime is legal, including murder. That's the basic premise for The Purge and it translates well into an extremely chaotic scare zone for this year's haunt event at Universal Studios. Darkness, fog, loud noises, and masked attackers dashing quickly through the crowd are in your face before you realize they were there. The Purge is the largest scare zone encompassing the entire of the New York street and there's definitely enough action to fill it. At special times throughout the night, captured people are auctioned off in front of the bus.

Bayou of Blood

Bayou of Blood is my favorite scare zone for this year. While it's not huge or exceptionally scary, the Voodoo Queen won me over. She asks guests about their darkest desires and offers to fulfill them, for a price. While I was there, guests were asking for everything from power, to love, to eliminating their student loans.

MASKerade: Unstitched

MASKerade: Unstitched is the first scare zone you encounter when entering Halloween Horror Nights. This scare zone features Victorian style dancers set to classical music all beneath a glowing chandelier. By the way, did I mention their decaying flesh? The ball has gone on for way too long and these dancers have started to fall apart and have taken to sewing it back into place.

Face Off: Into the Flesh

The Face Off: Into the Flesh scare zone brings creature creations from the SyFy show to life. While there are random roving creatures in this scare zone lunging at you as you walk by, the real spectacle is the show creations found on their own stages.

Fans of the show will love this scare zone as it gives the perfect opportunity to get up close to these amazing creations. If you're just out for a scare, head over to Bayou of Blood. Halloween Horror Nights starts tonight at Universal Studios in Orlando and runs select nights through October.
