Halloween Horror Nights 1994

 

Halloween Horror Nights 1994 was the first Horror Nights that added Scarezones to the event. Horrorwood was the first scarezone that featured the Chainsaw Drill Team, the Lizzie Borden Band and more. This new concept provided a safer way of organizing the crowds on theme park streets. Halloween Horror Nights IV was also the last time Robosaurus would appear at the event. The monstrous robot would not make an appearance for another twelve years.

Halloween Horror Nights 1993

 

Halloween Horror Nights III was marketed as the 3rd  Annual Universal Studios Florida Halloween Horror Nights and was held for five nights. Creators for HHN 1993 brought in consultants, the Elm Street Hauntreprenuers of Irving, Texas, who recommended Universal concentrate more on startling people than grossing them out. Halloween Horror Nights III was also the first year of three different mazes, two with brand new concepts.

Don’t Be Fooled by ARTEGON Marketplace: It’s the ANTI-Mall

I’ve found a not so hidden gem right in the heart of Orlando. It’s called the Artegon Marketplace located on the north east end of International Drive.

I say hidden gem because knowing the previous history of the mall that used to be there, Artegon offers so many surprises around each and every corner in contrast to its predecessor. Its anti-mall theme along with its laid back, Hipster vibe can be felt throughout the place.

Mako Ride Highlight and Review

Mako’s…fast, no really fast, no SUPER FAST!

Smooth with more airtime than you can handle in one coaster. If it’s anything like the now famous (or infamous) shark, the Mako, then we need to stay out of the water.
