Universal Studios has scary themed nights from September to November for Halloween but is it really that scary?

During Horror Nights, they have mazes and monsters that are supposed to scare you. Well after what I had observed when I went, was definitely true.

When you walk into the park they have all kinds of monsters, including creepy people with chainsaws, and yes, they can corner you with one of the buildings. But just in case you are worried, these are all just actors and they can’t touch you.

Monsters walk around the front of the park.

If the scary monsters that pop up while you’re walking in isn’t enough, it just keeps getting better with the mazes. These aren’t your ordinary maze where you’re trapped in a bunch of walls and you desperately try to get out, these are mazes where you walk into a terrifying time with a lot of jumpscares. The options of mazes to go through include, Stranger Things, Halloween 4, Poltergeist, The First Purge, Trick R Treat, The Walking Dead, and the Terror Tram (a tram ride which ends up being a maze).

One of the mazes that I  had gone on was The Walking Dead Maze. This was one of the scariest mazes for me. When you walk into the maze, even the waiting room is scary with blood and broken stuff everywhere. This maze has a lot less sudden jumpscares unlike Halloween 4. If you’re scared of zombies, I highly recommend you don’t go through this maze. But if you are looking for another opinion, Jaelynn Moo a 7th grader here says, “The Walking Dead could have done better it wasn’t really that scary.”

Another maze they have is the Terror Tram. If you haven’t been to Universal Studios before, they have a tram ride, but the one they have for the horror nights has a twist. When you go on the tram they play a creepy video then drop you off in a maze with jumpscares over you and people with chainsaws. In my opinion, this was one of the best attractions they had for horror nights so I highly recommend if you do go try to go on the Terror Tram.

In addition to the Terror Tram, there is the Stranger Things maze. The new and popular show now has a Universal Studios maze dedicated to it. This maze is based off the first season of Stranger Things. Almost all of its jump scares are the Demogorgon too. This is probably the least scary maze they have but it’s one of the mazes you have to see if you go. “It was definitely terrifying. I was with my friends we were going through the tram maze (Terror Tram) and all my friends were screaming and holding on to each other and I was like heck it I’m just going to do something stupid so I walked around like an idiot in the maze singing and dancing so I think the actors were more of me than I was of them.” 7th grader, Eeva Sogliuzzo said.

If you’re a fan of the film Trick R’ Treat you definitely have to go see the maze they have for it. This maze is very chaotic with all of the flashing lights and jumpscares. This wasn’t one of the scariest mazes they had there, but it definitely was fun.   

If you’re like me and is a big fan of the film, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers you will absolutely love this maze. It wasn’t as scary for me but my friends could say different, there were many jumpscares that could certainly be scary to most people.

Unfortunately, I was not able to go the Poltergeist or The First Purge mazes, but many people that have gone to horror nights told me that they were scary but still a great time and The First Purge maze is very popular a lot like the Stranger Things maze.

Well if you need a break from these terrifying mazes Transformers 3-D, Revenge of the Mummy and The Simpsons Ride are rides that are open during Universal Horror Nights.  

If you’re looking for an overall great and scary time with friends and family for Halloween, I absolutely recommend you should go to Universal Studios Hollywood Horror Nights!
