    Halloween Horror Nights 2021 Initial Reactions

    Halloween Horror Nights 2021 Initial Reactions

    Clint, Barry, and Emily sit down and discuss their initial reactions from the opening weekend of Halloween Horror Nights 2021 at Universal Orlando Resort.

    They discuss opening night, the food, the scarezones, the houses, and MORE!

    For its highly-anticipated 30th year, Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights is unleashing a legion of horror legends, pop culture greats, and haunting original stories – many from the event’s esteemed history – in 10 disturbingly realistic haunted houses, five nightmarish scare zones, and outrageous live entertainment, with diabolical surprises lurking around every corner...

    The horror continues as hordes of menacing “scareactors” fill the streets in five ominous scare zones to stalk guests’ every move as they enter the monstrous universe of iconic horror stories from “Crypt TV,” attempt to escape the frights of scare zones’ past in “30 Years, 30 Fears,” resist succumbing to an alien cyber regime overtaking a future dystopia in “Seek and Destroy,” flee the wrath of the Terra Queen and her rooted, evil plans in “Gorewood Forest” and witness a box office “slash” in “Lights, Camera, Hacktion: Eddie’s Revenge.”
    And when they need a break from the screams, guests can enjoy two all-new, shockingly-entertaining shows. Marathon of Mayhem: Carnage Factory, a brand-new nighttime lagoon show, transforms the expansive Universal Studios lagoon with renowned visions of fright highlighting some of the biggest names in horror and Halloween Horror Nights history featured in this year’s event. And a fiery new show, Halloween Nightmare Fuel, ignites guests’ waking nightmares with nocturnal creatures, aerialists of the night, and frightful fire performers as they come alive to the crackling beat of rock, metal, and electronica music.

Equal parts entertaining and informative

The theme park podcast world is full of some real doozys…
This is NOT one of them. Incredibly entertaining AND informative with great production. I look forward to every new episode!

UniqueNicknameNumber69 ,

Trustworthy and fun!

ThrillGeek is one of the only sources I trust. If universal or Disney posts something I still don’t trust it until ThrillGeek posts it. I love listening to them and watching their videos because their enthusiasm goes beyond loving to listen to themselves talk like so many other theme park podcasts.
