The theme of Halloween Horror Nights 2014 seems to be “Corporate Promotional Synergy,” and HHN’s latest announcement is falling right in line with that theme. It’s probably no big surprise to HHN fans that the Universal-produced and -distributed film The Purge: Anarchy will be bringing the chaos to the streets as a scare zone at both Hollywood and Orlando theme parks this year.
Last year, The Purge scare zone served as the entrance to HHN Hollywood. Guests had to brave the chainsaws and taunts of the Purgers as they made their way to the mazes. Although it’s not confirmed that it will be in the same location this year, it only makes sense. We actually found it to be one of the most successful and well-themed scare zones that we’ve experienced at HHN. The story lends itself perfectly to the streets, where chaos, terror, murder, and anarchy rule the night. Scare zones can sometimes feel forced, as they’re outdoors and have to fit into a pre-existing theme park landscape and architecture. Since The Purge is about chaos in the streets, it’s well fitted to the city scape in the park’s entrance.
Here are some of the looks we can expect to see on the scareactors this year:
