Universal Orlando and Halloween Horror Nights!

Piers says "Hurrrah!!!"

Image
Hooray! Hooray! It's our Universal Orlando day!





Image
Omg! Omg! The ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings are up! The ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings are up!





Image
"Grrrrr! I'm angry penguin guy! I'm gonna EAT THIS BABY!!!"





Image
"I'll take the fat penguin...he's kind of like Robb!"





Image
PLEASE DONT EAT ME MR.LION!!!





Image
We recognize this guy. Do you know who he is? If you do...




Image

Today, Elissa Alvey will be playing the role of grouper on "Good Mummy!"





Image
VIP Tours for TPR! We are doing the "Unmasking the Horror" tour today. If you are a fan of HHN or just like seeing "behind the scenes" at theme parks, we highly recommend this tour!





Image
Is it real? Or is it Memorex? The HHN 19 "model" on display for the tour was VERY impressive!

Image
Creepy!

Image
If it's Halloween...

Image
And my personal favorite! =)

Image
The tour gives you a behind the scenes look at the layout of all the houses and how these guys produced all this scary stuff!

Image
This should be a pretty cool scare zone tonight!

Image
"Hey Litterbug! In the clown's mouth!"

Image
"Now before we go in these houses, we have to perform an HHN ritual..."

Image
"Body Cavity Search!!! SPREAD 'EM!!!!" Just kidding guys... =)

Image
Why, yes, we will take the VIP entrance, thank you very much! =)

Image
This year's group of TPR Halloween fans! And everyone say thank you to Michael Roddy, Mark Patterson, and everyone at Universal who helped put our event together!

Image
First up on "Unmasking the Horror" tour was the Frankenstein house.





Image
VIP tour guide Mark Patterson gave us an amazing behind the scenes look at three Halloween Horror Nights mazes.

Image
Anyone need a casket yet?





Image
"Hey guys, what do you want us to do with this extra boohole?"

Image
Ooooh...Frankenstein likes Chinese Food!

Image
Piers, NO LOVE MAKING WITH ANY PROPS!!!!

Image
YES! SAW THAT LEG RIGHT OFF!!! CUT RIGHT THROUGH THE BONE!!!

Image
PIERS!!! RELEASE!!!!

Image
Now THIS is the kind of treatment you get on TPR Tours! Sign up now! =)

Image
"Shhhh...don't tell anyone, but this guy has no penis!"

Image
Anyone recognize these props? If you do...

Image
Poor, poor Victor...

Image
Universal Creative Director Michael Roddy tells us about Dracula.





Image
"This is not the Boris Karlof Dracula you may remember but more Vlad the Impaler."

Image
The sick and twisted Roddy likes to sit and watch the impaled bodies slump over and slowly die. He's into that sort of stuff!

Image
Lenticular portraits made just for this maze...very nice attention to detail!

Image
This is what happens when you miss the TPR bus on a tour!

Image
"Ok, guys, we know you like to eat, so we've set up the buffet!"

Image
The detail in all of Universal's mazes is just incredible. You would think you're in these actual locations!

Image
Thank you again to Michael! (He seems to be very worried about something up in the sky...hmm.....)

Image
Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit was AWESOME!!! I picked Moving Right Along by the Muppets and it was the silliest roller coaster ride ever!





Image
The entire ride was fantastic! The drop produced great airtime...

Image
...the "non-inverting loop" was actually more intense than most inverting loops!

Image
And there were surprises around every corner. This ride is a HUGE WIN for Universal Orlando!

Image
This takes me back to my days of working on Call of Duty!

Image
"My hero!"

Image
Universal Orlando is Big Mike approved!!!





Image
Harry Potter construction update!!! Ooohhh...Aaaahhhh...





Image
Piers is having a few pre-HHN beers at Moe's.





Image
Piers has found his new husband!





Image
One of the best mazes of the event!

Image
One of the best mazes of the event! (Oh, who are we kidding, they were ALL good!)

Image
That's right..TPR gets VIP...I mean RIP treatment!

Image
A bit of drinking before our RIP Tour to calm the nerves?





Image
R.I.P. Tour. The ONLY way to do Halloween Horror Nights! Seriously, it's a night of great fun. Front of the line to all the mazes and rides. We highly recommend booking this tour with Universal's VIP Tour Department!





Image
Even before it gets completely dark, Universal Orlando is transformed into something creepy and weird.

Image
Looks like this production isn't going so well...

Image
Hot chicks serving booze are everywhere!





Image
HHN Signature shot!!!

Image
Leave it to Cleaver has been a TPR favorite so far!





Image
"Whatever you do, don't go into the green colored fog..."

Image
"Look! It's a drink! And it glows! Ain't that cool?"





Image
Hey Doug! Thanks for helping keep us safe in Amity!





Image
The Spawning - very bizarre!





Image
Cirque Du Freak was one of the many scare zones this year...

Image
Yeah, there were some pretty freakish monsters hanging around in here...

Image
I can't decide if I'm turned on or freaked out...

Image
OMG! There was nothing more freakish than these two deformed creatures!

Image
Rat lady...she's HOT!





Image
"Hey Ladies, I'm Jon...and when I'm done with you two I've got a special place to take both of you..."

Image
"...that's right, I'm gonna chop you up and put you in these two coffins. Because I'm just that weird!"

Image
Yay! More VIP awesomeness at the Bill & Ted Show!





Image
Hey look! We got our own private Bill & Ted show!





Image
Well not really, Joey Fatone was there too.





Image
This will be the last photo you see of Bill & Ted, because if you take a picture, they put you in that "leg sawing off thing" you saw in the Frankenstein maze.

Image
We made a pitstop at Simpsons...





Image
More mazes...





Image
...more rides...





Image
...more chainsaws!

Image
Another AWESOME Halloween Horror Nights!!!<br><br>

Great update! How was the 1st element on HRRR? It seems as though it'd be simular to the Norweigan loops on Speed Monster & Fahrenheit...seems like a fun coaster. As always thanks for the great pics :)

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

I lost all respect for Elissa with her giddyness in meeting Joey Fatone. I think she is still blushing.

I loved Frankenstein! One of my top three houses of the night. Chuck (cfc) and I ended up going into it again at the end of the night.

Both the unmasking tour and the RIP tour were amazing. It was great to see all the work and detail that go into making these mazes that will be missed without doingthe tours. Knowing the stories made the houses scarier.

I'm still cowering from the chucky maze.
