Over the weekend I got to experience Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. This year one of the mazes was themed on Silent Hill so I thought I'd share my experiences with you guys. While I unfortunately wasn't able to take any pictures at the event I found the above video on Youtube that takes you through the whole maze.

The video doesn't quite do the maze justice but if you're unable to see this in person, it'll give you a pretty good idea of what it was like. For one thing, the video uses night vision so you don't get a sense of just how dark and creepy the maze really is. In the little hallways between rooms it's especially dark and there are thin strings hanging down from the ceiling that feel like spiderwebs as you're walking through them. It seems like everything in these mazes is meant to mess with your head. I don't know if it's intentional, but the mazes even smell weird (they don't smell bad, just... kind of weird). This was my third year at Halloween Horror nights, and it's quickly become my favorite thing to do during Halloween time.

Enjoy the video and happy Halloween. :)

One of these years I need to come down and hang with you for the Halloween Horror Nights! I loved this kind of Halloween themed event and this one particularly looks like some of the best around!

I have experienced some good haunted houses in Portland but nothing video game themed!

I would maze the shit out of this thing. Jon, have you done Frighttown?

I haven't done Fighttown yet. Only hit up Scream at the Beach a few years and the Haunted House at Disney Land and Enchanted Forest :D

Frighttown is great. I recommend it. I've also done The 13th Door here, which was B+

Sounds great, recently I haven't been too impressed with Scream at the Beach so checking out a new one sounds radsome.
