    Good thing is that it starts on like 9/21 this year, so there will time for a good cross-section of reviews before it's even October.

    From what I understand they had some significant management changeover that happened mid-stream last year. The new team put more emphasis on developing the 2012 Haunt than in trying to salvage last years. The monster "talent" is supposed to be a really awful clique-type situation where the veterans do whatever they want - take inappropriate breaks, break character, pose for pictures, and really try to intimidate the newer hires. A lot of the vets took the "screw you" approach to new management trying to reign them in, and wouldn't show up before ultimately getting the boot. From what I understand they are going for a more professional approach this year, hopefully it works out.

    I have been to Universal Studios a few times during various trips. How does it work around the Halloween time when they have these horror nights? If I was going during the day, would I have one ticket for the regular Universal studios stuff and then another ticket for the horror stuff and is that only in the evening thus the horror nights?

    I ask as I might finally get there for that when I hopefully can make it there to see the Kings and the Coyotes on Oct. 27. No Lockout please!

It's supposed to be up to a 30 minute walk through duration. Fully interactive, foul language, groping, that sort of stuff
    That sounds ****ING AWESOME.

    I think you can buy a full day thing, but if so, it won't be cheap. It's two seperate admissions. Thanks Mondo for the update on Knotts behind the scenes. Kingsqueen has been telling me a bunch of this she got via twitter and I can honestly say that the scareactors have really got out of hand at Knotts. Too complacent, and convinced that they are stars. New Blood New Blood!!!! That's where the energy is. And it's why Universal has been...head & shoulders better over the past few years.

    Alice Cooper Returns to Halloween Horror Nights! | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    From the Press Release
    Multi-platinum recording artist Alice Cooper, a mastermind of the rock horror genre, will conjure up his peculiar vision of disturbing horror imagery in two new haunted attractions debuting this fall at Halloween Horror Nights at both Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

    For the first time ever at Universal Orlando Resort’s award-winning event, Alice Cooper’s own version of a demented and dark subconscious will come to life in the haunted maze, “Alice Cooper – Welcome to My Nightmare.” Inspired by iconic elements from his first solo album, the attraction will put guests inside the haunted dreams of the album’s recurring character, “Steven,” as he endures the scream-inducing madness spawned from the mind of the legendary rocker.

    Making an encore performance at Universal Studios Hollywood’s acclaimed event, Alice Cooper’s new haunted attraction, “Alice Cooper Goes to Hell 3D,” will be inspired by the musician’s classic concept album centered on unending darkness, eternal torment and unimaginable horrors. The terrifying maze will beckon guests to experience hell’s interminable inferno as imagined through the eyes of hard rock visionary Alice Cooper. To experience this daunting new maze, guests will don 3D glasses for an optimum up close and personal three-dimensional encounter with Alice Cooper’s underworld.

    Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper pioneered the concept of the theatrical rock concert. His recording career spans six decades, includes more than two dozen albums, millions of record sales, countless world tours and appearances in scores of movies and videos, including “Nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy’s Dead,” Universal Pictures’ “Prince of Darkness” and a memorable appearance in the recent “Dark Shadows.” Last fall, Alice Cooper released his acclaimed “Welcome 2 My Nightmare,” his long-awaited sequel to his 1975 classic “Welcome to My Nightmare,” which debuted at No. 22 on the Billboard 200.

    Sharing his enthusiasm, Alice Cooper said, “I grew up watching classic Universal horror movies so it’s a thrill for me to work with Universal’s designers to create the quintessential Alice Cooper maze for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort. To have Alice Cooper haunted attractions at both parks this year is truly an honor...or is it a horror? Last year, Universal Studios Hollywood scared the wits out of me with their maniacal and demented creation and they’ve promised to up the ante with ‘Alice Cooper Goes To Hell 3D.’ I can’t wait to see the final terrifying masterpiece. It will be hell. I’m even more excited to see Universal Orlando Resort’s maze, ‘Alice Cooper - Welcome To My Nightmare. Let’s see if they can scare me!”

    “There are few as coolly demented as Alice Cooper,” said Jim Timon, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Universal Orlando Resort. “He’s a cult classic icon and his partnership on the ‘Alice Cooper – Welcome to My Nightmare’ maze will bring something completely new and unexpected to our Halloween Horror Nights fans.”

    John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood, said, “We wanted to break new ground with the insanely immersive ‘Alice Cooper Goes to Hell 3D’ maze and elevate its journey into the abyss to a shocking new level. The cutting-edge 3D technology we invented for this haunted attraction will add a palatable sense of realism to an already twisted environment that only music genius Alice Cooper could envision. Through innovative sets and LED technology, we’ve totally pushed the envelope to turn Alice’s maze into a mind-blowing 3D experience for his fans and Halloween Horror Nights guests.”
    Love the Coop but I thought his maze last year was pretty but not real effective. Sounds like they are gonna jump it up a bit.

    This 3D **** needs to end already. Having said that, I liked the Cooper maze last year. I just hope they're done with House of 1000 Corpses. One year of that was enough, let alone two in a row.
