We got invited to Universal Studios Hollywood to check out their Opening night of Halloween Horror Night. Oh man, we had blast exploring all their new mazes.
We decided to arrive early to do their early 5 pm entrance before checking in as Media at 7 pm.
By doing the 5 pm early entrance, we were able to COMPLETE all 5 lower lot mazes by 6:50pm in just 1 hour 45 minutes.
That’s why we HIGHLY recommend coming early and doing the 5 pm early entrance.
We waited only 10 minutes for SAW at 5:45 pm. Posted wait time was 20 minute.
We were in line for Ash vs Evil maze at 6:15pm. It looks packed, but the line moved pretty quick. Waited maybe 15 min.
The Shinning is our 2nd favorite maze at Horror Night. It was practically a walk-on during early entrance.
We made our way to the exit to get ready to check in as Media.
We picked up our press credentials by 7:40 pm.
As I was taken the picture Tobin Bell (Jigsaw from SAW) walked by.
