Universal Monsters Coming To Halloween Horror Nights

It would not be much of a Halloween-themed maze at an amusement park without its signature scares and monsters. And what better place to experience that than at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights, with Universal’s own classic monsters?

The studio will also be working with its film production partner Blumhouse for two all new scared-filled mazes based on Unfriended and Truth or Dare. More on the story below.

Universal Studios Hollywood’s ‘Fast and Furious: Supercharged’ Takes You Into The Movie

Fast and Furious Supercharged

The best kind of theme park rides are the ones that truly take you into environments of the story. At Universal Studios Hollywood, Fast and Furious: Supercharged does just that! It’s crazy to think that the backlot tram can transform into a high-speed chase vehicle, but they totally did it. You start off on the regular theme park tour which then finds itself under threat when Dom Torretto and Owen Shaw go head-to-head in a chase you come along for through the streets and highways of Los Angeles.

The immersive 360 experience pushes the envelope for theme park rides. It uses similar hydraulic tech like on Disney World’s Star Tours, but on a longer scale that isn’t as encapsulated. The combination of it with 3D on both sides plays tricks on your mind and you really feel like you’re zooming through traffic with Dom, Letty, and the gang.

Curse Of Chucky Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights 2013

Two new original scare zones are coming to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood: Curse of Chucky, based on the upcoming sixth installment in the Child’s Play series, and The Purge: Survive the Night, based on the 2013 Universal film, The Purge.

In the Curse of Chucky scare zone, based on the direct-to-DVD and Blu-ray feature coming out on October 8, 2013, the tiny red-headed doll possessed with the spirit of a notorious serial killer will come to life to shock and horrify guests.

For The Purge: Survive the Night, theme park guests will enter the world of The Purge, where for one night all crime is legal – including murder – and no one is safe. Attendees will then run for their lives while experiencing some of the most memorable and terrorizing sequences from the film.

Universal’s The Purge, starring Ethan Hawke (Sinister, Insidious, Training Day) and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), also makes its DVD and Blu-ray debut on October 8, 2013.

Black Sabbath Halloween Horror Nights 2013

Black Sabbath is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood!

This fall, the theme park’s famed Halloween Horror Nights will feature an all-original horror-themed 3D maze called Black Sabbath: 13 3D, a new attraction based on the legendary band’s lyrics that will also include scenes inspired by their latest album, 13.

While going through the attraction, guests will reportedly face Lucifer and his bride, blood-soaked dead bodies, and bubbling pools of “radioactive water,” all while songs inspired by classic Black Sabbath tunes “Luke’s Wall,” “Iron Man,” “Paranoid,” “War Pigs,” “Electric Funeral,” and the haunting “Black Sabbath” boom at high volumes through the confines of the maze.

The maze’s design contains “horrifying graveyards, disturbing madhouses, and bone-chilling battlefields,” along with imagery of the godfathers of heavy metal themselves – Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler, the co-founders of Black Sabbath, currently on tour promoting 13, their first studio album together in 35 years.

Check out the announcement video here below, which includes a preview of the new attraction.

Universal Studios Hollywood: Transformers: The Ride 3D

Transformers: The Ride 3D
Universal Studios Hollywood
Ride previewed: April 28, 2012
Ride opens to public on May 25, 2012

Hasbro‘s Transformers films have excited the public for years now with fulfilled promises of high-speed action, fiery pyrotechnics, and intense Autobot vs. Decepticon battles on land and in the city skies above; everything you’ve come to expect from a Michael Bay production. The question is, could Michael Bay effectively translate that experience to a theme park ride? Recently I went on that ride, and I can honestly say, “Mission Accomplished.”

Michael Bay collaborated with the ride builders at Universal Creative to bring the experience from his films to life. I rode Transformers: The Ride 3D during what Universal Studios Hollywood called their Technical Preview (which just means that some aspects of the ride may not have been fully functional, but to be honest, everything seemed to work fine to me).

I’ve included an unabashedly enthusiastic post-ride video reaction and photos here below, along with a description of the ride and of the whole experience.

Universal Studios Hollywood has officially announced that Jimmy Fallon will be their brand new virtual host on the famed Studio Tour, which over 150 million people have taken part in.

Fallon will be introducing and setting up videos that will play on the new HD screens that are now part of the tram cars after some major high-tech upgrades were unleashed on the park, including the insane new 3D King Kong experience.

On his new gig, Fallon said, “We really had fun with filming my role. We brought some writers out from our show and added some jokes, more play with the Studio Tour guides, the tram drivers and we added a song or two. The tour itself is a classic, a really great experience. For anyone with any interest in show business, it’s all there: the glamor, the glitz, all the hard work that goes into making a movie or a TV show can be experienced on the Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tour. I’m very happy to be a part of it.”
