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.

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.
