Come face to face with your deepest fears as Bloody Mary brings history's most terrifying urban legends to life at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights.

It's the most immersive horror experience ever, with more Scare Zones than ever before, more Scareactors, and the most Haunted Houses ever.

On select nights in September, October, and November, Universal Studios Florida® theme park is transformed into a nightmarish labyrinth of haunted houses, outrageous live shows, and electrifying scare zones while an army of mutants, monsters and maniacs roam the darkened studio streets.

With an all-new and expanded Terror Tram, new mazes, new shows and new scare zones for 2008, Halloween Horror Nights will once again be the most terrifying Halloween Event in Southern California and is already generating extensive news coverage.
 

Plus it's the only place you can catch a rare and exclusive first look at Universal Pictures' highly anticipated re-imagining of the genre classic, "The Wolfman," when you dare to ride "The Terror Tram: The Nightmare Tour".  
 
5.
Tampa Busch Gardens - Tampa, FL 
The event takes place overnight, during select nights in October (typically on the weekends). The event places focus on Haunted Houses, Scare Zones, and Shows. Haunted Houses are enclosed areas with specific storylines and highly themed decor; typically, they lead guests through a somewhat claustrophobic maze with various features designed to startle, confuse, or disquiet those who enter. Scare zones are similar to Haunted Houses, however, they are outdoor areas set in the main paths. The shows are similar in structure to the standard stage shows shown at Busch Gardens, however, they have a halloween setting, and feature dark humor and grotesque scenery.
