Halloween Horror Nights Set to Begin at Universal Studios

Fort Pierce Tribune (FL) - Friday, October 14, 1994


Due to an out-of-this-world demand by sell-out crowds in `92 and `93, Universal Studios internationally renowned "Halloween Horror Nights" has expanded to include eight nights (October 14-15, 21-22, 28-31) of madness, mayhem and seasonal fun at more than a dozen terrorific haunts. Inspired by monster classics such as "Frankenstein" and "Dracula", Horror Nights beckon both the squeamish and courageous to confront the motliest crew of gory, gruesome, grotesque and monstrous creatures of filmdom and beyond.

Back by popular demand is the all new "Dungeon of Terror," a dingy maze that summons visitors to a foreboding dungeon of doom.

At the "Boneyard," common sense is thrown to the wind when wide-eyed visitors enter a recently excavated insane asylum.

Located on the fringe of Universal's darkened New York streets in a deserted warehouse is the all new "Hell's Kitchen," where visitors encounter hundreds of dismembered bodies and "Roach Man" and other equally maniacal madmen block guests ill-fated attempts to escape the heinous house of destruction.

The "Price Is Fright," is a hilarious, interactive game show spoof starring Beetlejuice, the ghoul with the cool. Guests of the infamous Bates Motel find themselves entangled in the inescapable abyss of "Psycho Path," thrusts visitors into the unforgettable madness of "Psycho" where they'll be "showered" with attention from none other than Norman Bates. Guests check-in, but they don't check out!

"Robosaurus," 30 savage tons of metal and flames, is back terrorizing the once serene streets of the New York backlot. The fire and smoke-breathing beasts must be stopped as he powerfully crushes cars and vehicles in a vicious path of destruction.

Bill S. Preston and Ted Theodore Logan once again travel through time in the all new "Bill & Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure III," in their annual quest for the hippest Halloween trick-or-treat adventure yet.

Face the all-out attack of the shark in the dark, as "Jaws" explodes with the fury of a 32-foot-long, 3-ton Great White Shark! And if that's not enough, hundreds of monsters, mutants and maniacs stalk Universal's guests, slithering from every dark crevice of the eerily darkened backlot, joined by last year's terrifying "Chain Saw Drill Team," as well as the all new "Lizzie Borden's All-Girl Band" and the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."

Universal's backlot will be rockin' all three weekends with some of this year's hottest musical acts and camera crews will be rolling as FOX television stars and "ABC in Concert" roll during the Halloween madness at Universal.
