2015 marks the 25th anniversary of Halloween Horror Nights here at Universal Studios in Orlando. Every year since 1991, this event has grown not only at this park, but at other Universal Studios Theme Parks all around the world.
Together, my wife and I got to experience the whole event as a part of a VIP press event, which included touring 9 elaborately designed haunted mazes and multiple outdoor “scare zones”. They’ve basically turned the entire theme park and nine of the professional sound stages into one enormous haunted environment. It was, hands down, the most incredible and surreal outdoor atmosphere and immersive theater experience I’ve ever wandered through.

This episode is a special documentary-style audio experience. I had a lot of fun producing this one – it felt almost like painting with sound – and I think you’ll enjoy it.
