Universal Studios Hollywood has announced the dates for the 2010 Halloween Horror Nights events, which will run from September 24 - October 31.
The events will take place at weekends, including September 24-25, October 1-2, 8-9, 15-17, 21-24 and 28-31. The LA Times reports that Universal will expand the event this year, with five horror mazes (compared to four in 2009) and six scare zones being included. Also returning will be the traditional "Teror Tram" makeover for the park's famous Studio Tour.
Universal Studios Hollywood is yet to release any information on what the themes will be for the various horror attractions. The studio is a world-renowned source of classic horror movies, and Halloween Horror Nights usually features characters from a range of older and more recent hits. Fans of the park's House of Horrors attraction will know what to expect, with real actors mingled in with the guests to create genuinely unpredictable scares.
Tickets for the event will be available in advance via the Halloween Horror Nights website, although Universal is yet to confirm pricing details. The Horror Nights take place in the evening and are separately ticketed from daytime admission, with a limited number of rides operating alongside the Halloween attractions.
Auditions for those hoping to play the part of zombies, vampires, murderers and other monsters during Halloween Horror Nights will take place in July. Follow @HorrorNights on Twitter for details.
