Happy early Autumn!

I am so glad to finally say that. This day has been on my mind since it ended last year. Fall has always been my favorite time of the year and although the seasons in Florida don’t change as drastically as other parts of America, I am grateful for what we do receive.

Things such as cooler temperatures, fewer people at the ThemeParks, and an escape to the true Florida outdoor life!

We come out of our summer hibernation in Florida and bask in the fall décor both autumn and spooky in nature as it kicks off the holiday season.

Our guest today is the owner of RideSoother.com. She has a strong love and passion for immersive theme parks rides; particularly at Disney and Universal.

Halloween Horror Nights 2

Halloween Horror Nights 1992

In 1992, the event was renamed Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights (advertised as the 2nd Annual Halloween Horror Night) instead of the previous Fright Nights. The 1992 year would add a new maze, The People Under the Stairs, in one of Universal’s soundstages.

Many of the attractions this year became “Horror-fied” and added a scary element to them.

Because of the success of the first year, Halloween Horror Nights would have a larger budget ($1 million) and would aim at becoming the number one Halloween event in America. Joseph Curley, Universal Studios Florida PR Manager at the time, stated that the 1992 year would be like Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Halloween Horror Nights I AKA Fright Nights

Hey Hipsters! It’s time to relive the ghastly history of Universal’s most anticipated yearly event, Halloween Horror Nights.

Halloween Horrors Nights, created by Julie Zimmerman and John Paul Geurts, began as Fright Nights over in Hollywood, California and was brought to Florida in 1991 for three nights. The original concept of this event was to have a huge Halloween party throughout the Universal Studios Florida theme park. Little did the creators know that this spine-tingling affair would turn into a global phenomenon for over a quarter of a century.

13 Things We Love About Fall at the Florida Theme Parks

Pumpkin spice, horrors at Universal, wild nights at Busch Gardens, and trick or treating with Mickey are some things we love about fall in central Florida.

A couple of days ago I was riding in the car and for once I was able to have my windows down. There was a briskness in the Florida air that’s always welcomed and desired in this state. This time of year happens to be one of our (ThemeParkHipsters) favorites with the opportunity to enjoy the parks in the fall with fewer amounts of people. We come out of our summer hibernation in Florida and bask in the fall décor both autumn and spooky in nature as it kicks off the holiday season.

Halloween Horror Nights VI

 

Halloween Horror Nights VI Journey Into Fear marketing featured a demented creature lurking in the dark, chanting the tagline in advertisements. The event featured three mazes, one scarezone, three shows, and an all new parade. The event was held for fifteen nights from October 11th to November 2, 1996.

Halloween Horror Nights 1996 was the first year to see the Festival of the Dead Parade, a Mardi Gras-style parade. The Crypt Keeper was not the icon that year; however, he was still featured in the event with his own house and as the leader of the parade.
