Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights Gets – US

See what I did with that headline? I’m a genius.  It’s August so that means we’re due a bunch of announcements regarding Universal Studio’s annual Halloween Horror Nights festivities and houses. It’s one of the park’s biggest events of the year and they usually go all out. Their first announcement, at least that I’ve seen, is US is getting it’s own House. I lie, I believe I saw an announcement a few months back that Stranger Things and Ghostbusters is also getting houses this year. I’m not a huge fan of haunted houses because I’m a little scardy cat, but Universal Studios pulls out all the stops for this annual October event. Official press release is below.

Universal’s Epic Adventure Theme Park Coming to Orlando in 2022!

Today, Universal Studios announced a brand new theme park is coming to Orlando in 2022. The announcement was about as bland as an announcement like this could be and there were no details. For the life of me can’t think of any Universal Studios Properties that could even make up a park like this. With that said, Universal Orlando is one of my favorite theme parks in the world and I will always prefer it over Disney World. I’m hopeful this park will be big, expansive and exciting.  The official press release is below.

On Thursday, Topgolf, the premier entertainment destination, and independent studio, invaded Comic Con to be part of an activation unlike no other. Celebrities, creators and below-the-line craftsmen were invited to hit eco-friendly balls from the ship’s deck off the historical USS Midway—a naval aircraft located in downtown San Diego.

Notable stars included: Professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler; AMC’s The Walk Dead Julie Ann Emery; Stranger Things 3 Andrey Ivchenko; Freaks and Geeks’ Samm Levine; American Pie’s Thomas Ian Nicholas; KROQ’s The Kevin & Bean Show; HBO’s Ballers Carl McDowell, Syfy’s Van Helsing and TNT’s Snowpiercer Aleks Paunovic; Syfy’s The Magicians’ Brittany Curran; ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat Dash Williams, Dallas Cowboys Byron Jones; The Bachelorette’s Chris Randone and Krystal Neilsen; Olympic athlete Lolo Jones; UFC’s Paige VanZant and Austin Vanderford; and Denver Nuggets’ Mason Plumlee, among others.

Toptracer, the company’s state-of-the-art technology, helped track the flight path of every golf shot for VIP guests, displaying it right on the bay’s HD screen and content was sent to their respective email addresses for social media. Beyond just a friendly competition, bragging rights were in full swing.

In our modern age where one can barely make it an hour without his or her cell phone, it is amazing to think it has been 50 years since the first man stepped foot on the moon on July 20, 1969.  Prior to that, it was the stuff dreams were made of.  Last night, a VIP red carpet opening was carried out for the APOLLO 11: The Immersive Live Show at the all new custom built Lunar Dome at the Rose Bowl Stadium, the world’s largest touring venue.   The live play written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Scott Faris tells the story of the 400,000 individuals it took to accomplish this mission is told through the eyes of Ben, a retired NASA Aerospace Engineer, as he recounts those days to his granddaughter Sydney.  This celebration of one of mankind’s greatest achievements takes audiences of all ages on the ride of a lifetime and inspires future generations to imagine what comes next.

I managed to book a hotel in Gaslamp so I’m going to be in the thick of things.
