Most ex­cel­lent! Or­lando’s thrills for Hal­loween

Irish Daily Mail - - Travel - BY JIM MURTY

IT’S hard to know where you are at this time of the year, with the chang­ing sea­sons and the count­down to all our big fes­tiv­i­ties... Hal­loween, Black Fri­day, Christ­mas. I’m in the Mal­dives.

Back home, Daddy’s Lit­tle Girl is get­ting ready for spookin’. Be­ing a Pot­ter­head, it’s al­ways been an am­bi­tion of hers to go to Or­lando, while she spends many a night with her friends creep­ing her­self out to hor­ror films.

No­body does Hal­loween bet­ter than the Amer­i­cans and Uni­ver­sal Or­lando Re­sort has gar­nered plau­dits for its shows. This year, it is show­cas­ing its Fes­ti­val of the Dead­li­est, with nine haunted houses and five scare zones.

Get ready to be scared wit­less as Or­lando chan­nels Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story, Stan­ley Kubrick’s The Shin­ing, Saw: The Games of Jig­saw, Ash vs Evil Dead and The Hor­rors Of Blum­house.

Uni­ver­sal Or­lando’s Hal­loween Hor­ror Nights will also fea­ture two live shows.

This year, Academy of Vil­lains re­turns for a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year with an all-new show, Academy Of Vil­lains: Af­ter­life.

Plus, af­ter 26 years of Ex­cel­lent Hal­loween Ad­ven­tures, Bill and Ted are bring­ing their Farewell Tour to Hal­loween Hor­ror Nights to re­view this year’s most out­ra­geous mo­ments.

The scares will last through to Novem­ber 4 and thrill-seek­ers can ex­pe­ri­ence the usual theme-park highlights by day and ter­ri­fy­ing hor­ror-film chills by night at Hal­loween Hor­ror Nights.

For more in­for­ma­tion, visit the web­site Hal­loweenHor­rorNights. com/Or­lando.

Week­end Travel has been over for the hor­rorthon and will tell you all about it in the com­ing weeks.

But no, you won’t be hear­ing from your di­arist, who went as white as a ghost on the Hulk ride a cou­ple of years ago.

No, we have an Or­lando and thrill-seek­ing spe­cial­ist for you... the ghouls and the ghosts are afraid of him!
