 5 Fall Theme Park Events You Should be Excited For with Diamond Gray of Diamond Hearts Theme Parks and Ride Soother | Halloween Horror Nights, Howl-O-Scream, Epcot Food and Wine Festival, and more! 

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.
