After closing out its 2013 run in Southern California with a record-breaking night for a stand-alone haunted house event in the United States, Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare–the ultimate Halloween horror event–returns for its second year and will make its debut at WestWorld Of Scottsdale in the Phoenix, Arizona metro region for select nights from September 19-November 1.
After rave reviews from fans on both coasts, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood are bringing back AMC’s “The Walking Dead” to Halloween Horror Nights for an unprecedented third consecutive year. Horror-hungry fans will experience all-new terrifying mazes inspired by Season 4 of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning television series.
This year’s bone-chilling mazes 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 once again stage a desperate battle for survival against flesh-eating walkers and ruthless humans.
ScareCON is Europe’s ONLY trade show for the scare attractions industry and returns in 2014 for its seventh fear-filled year. The event will be held inside one of the UK’s most popular Halloween Scream Park – Tulleys Shocktoberfest on Thursday June 19th.
Haunted attractions are not just a hot ticket in the United States; we are seeing them pop up around the world, from Asia to the U.K. As Theme Park Adventure’s fan base continues to grow globally, more and more TPAers are letting us know about projects and local haunts they are involved in, whether at Halloween or any other time during the year; it’s exciting to share these haunted attractions with our readers, bringing the community closer together regardless of physical distance between our countries. One such attraction was recently hosted in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. It was called Caine. Who am I? and brought a strong backstory as well as a thrilling immersive environment, gripping all that dared to venture in!
Returning to Los Angeles on June 6th, 2014, for a second kicking and screaming year, the Great Horror Campout is expanding its uniquely entertaining and immersive horror camp to cities across the nation.
From Ten Thirty One Productions, the creators of the incredibly popular Los Angeles Haunted Hayride, the Great Horror Campout is a “choose your own adventure” overnight experience unlike any other in the horror themed events genre. With Mark Cuban recently investing $2 million in the company, the biggest deal in Shark Tank history, this year’s Great Horror Campout will be even more frightening with live scareactors, fog and scent effects, water spray and splash, narrow tunnels, crouch spaces which require you to bend down while walking, sudden loud noises, and much more.
One of the must-dos of London tourism is visiting the London Dungeon, a ninety-minute attraction, which opened in 1974 as a horror museum. Now, it is a much more interactive experience, complete with actors, rides, mazes, lighting effects, a beautiful soundscape, scents, and incredibly detailed sets, costumes and props. It is still an educational experience, but with added scares, humor, and theatrics.
There are equivalent Dungeons elsewhere in Europe, each focusing on the history of its own city, albeit not necessarily in chronological order nor completely accurately. A Dungeon will open later this year in San Francisco.
