Universal’s new Halloween event for kids REVEALED

While extending Halloween Horror Nights‘s run by one night – as recently happened, with the addition of Sunday, November 4 – is one way to expand the Halloween celebrations at Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal has just come up with a completely different method for also furthering the festivities: throwing in a daytime component for children for […]

The Horrors of Blumhouse: Chapter Two announced for Halloween Horror Nights 2018

The sixth maze for Halloween Horror Nights 2018 is simultaneously familiar and brand-new, taking a concept originally trotted out at last year’s event and updating its contents to make for a (hopefully) fresh experience for this year.

Disney’s first-ever Halloween Marvel experience announced

It wouldn’t be Halloween at Disneyland Resort without some sort of seasonal overlay; The Haunted Mansion has been undergoing its annual transformation into a semi-sequel to Tim Burton’s Nightmare before Christmas since 2001 (and, well before that, Christmas makeovers were popular at Disneyland Park, starting with Country Bear Christmas Special in 1984). To continue the […]

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Pandora: The World of Avatar. Star Wars Land.
