As a two-year veteran of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood, I strolled through the park’s entrance gate recently without a hint of fear in my blood. All I can think was, “I’ve done this long enough to know what to expect. Nothing’s gonna stop me now!” And I couldn’t have been more wrong.
As I led my pack of friends with my chest out, I gave every one of those ugly, gory-looking monsters the toughest look I could muster. That look strongly affirmed that I could not be messed with that night. But a few strides later, a small, dinky figure with one of those ugly clown masks came up from nowhere when I turned my back, and he scared me half to death! I almost tackled my friends as I tried to run behind them for protection. The rest of the night continued in a somewhat similar way.
Portrayed in my beautiful, yet not very prideful, narrative above, Halloween Horror Nights is clearly not for the weak. That means all you brave Immaculate Heart Pandas are totally capable of conquering these Universal beasts. But, if you think that you are too mighty for this not-so-scary Horror Night, I suggest you reread my story more closely.
The Horror Night Park is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and consists of various mazes, rides, scare zones, and even a show. I can assure you it is a great experience. And, if you are thinking about going, I am 100 percent certain that you will be scared!
