Fans have the power to choose the theme of a new Scare Zone for this fall's Halloween Horror Nights.
Whether you’re at a theater or at home trying to find a good horror flick to watch on Netflix, you’re essentially choosing how you want to be scared. What if you had the chance to choose how you wanted to be scared at a theme park?
This year you finally can, because Universal Studios Hollywood is bringing fans together for an online competition that dares Halloween Horror Nights fans to ‘pick their poison’ and select the theme of Universal Studios Hollywood’s terrifying new Scare Zone.
From June 4 to 18, 2014, fans can seal their own fates and cast their votes via the Halloween Horror Night’s Official Facebook Page to select one of three possible Scare Zone themes: Corps, Mask-a-Raid or Ghoulz.
Corps – A horrifying scene from the aftermath of “The War to End All Wars” where World War I-era soldiers have returned from the dead to a battle-torn France and French Street. Now, “The Lost Generation” is rising from their muddy graves and coming home to haunt the streets of “old Paris.”
Mask-a-Raid – Masquerade Balls were a time for the members of the French aristocracy to misbehave behind the cover of elaborate, jeweled masks. But “mask-a-raiding” among the powdered and perfumed party-goers are members of a blood-thirsty, cannibal cult.
Ghoulz – In 19th-century France, where restrictive laws and social norms prevented medical colleges from acquiring the one asset they need most, universities employed “unsavory characters” to do their dirty work and steal corpses from cemeteries in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, the grave robbers on Universal Studios Hollywood’s French Street have developed a morbid fascination with the dead – and a taste for human flesh.
The winning Scare Zone concept will be announced on June 19 and materialize in disturbingly real detail at Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights” on French Street in Fall 2014.
Recruit your friends to vote with you, and win the Scare Zone you want! Make sure to also ‘share’ your vote and get everyone on your side using #UniversalHHN on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
