HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS XX: A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS (Florida Resident Version)
For 19 Years, Something Has Been In Control –
And This Year, We Learn What It Is
All New Experiences Mark the 20th Year of the Nation's
Best, Most Intense, Halloween Event
ORLANDO, Fla. (August 26, 2010) – There is more
to paralyzing fear than a scream in the darkness or a cool breath on
the back of the neck. Or the grip of the undead.
Fear that truly consumes us comes from deep inside our souls, stirred
by something we don't always understand and rarely have the chance to
confront. Until now.
Halloween Horror Nights XX is about Fear himself. He is the Master
of everything Halloween Horror Nights has ever been and will become.
His weapons: Chaos, Death, Sacrifice, Mythos, Vengeance. His pawns: a
clown, a storyteller, an undertaker, a director, an usher…and you.
For 24 nights beginning September 24 and running through October 31,
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort will reveal Fear as
he has never been seen or experienced before. Fear and what he has
created have horrified people for 19 years. And this year, he will be
more real than ever.
"Everything we have done for the past 19 years, everything we have
learned, leads to this moment," said Jim Timon, senior vice president of
entertainment for Universal Orlando Resort. "This year's Halloween
Horror Nights is not about the past. It is about the future."
Halloween Horror Nights XX is not an anniversary event. There may be
glimpses of the familiar, but those glimpses may not look the same as
guests remember. And the familiar will quickly give way to the new.
This year, Halloween Horror Nights will feature eight all-new haunted houses, new scarezones and
live shows. And everything Fear touches will never be the same.
For a detailed listing of each haunted house, scarezone and show featured at this year's event, see below.
Halloween Horror Nights runs September 24-25, September
30-October 1-3, 7-10, 14-17, 20-24 and 27-31. Tickets are now on sale
for $74.99 plus tax. Florida residents can save up to $35 with advance
online purchase. For tickets and event information, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com. Due to the event's popularity, tickets for weekend nights are expected to sell out and should be purchased well in advance.
