Universal Studios - Halloween Horror Night 23 Review


Hello Fellow Food Adventurers,

This past week I was lucky enough to enjoy the beautiful Universal Studios Orlando as well as the scary, world famous, Halloween Horror Nights (HHN). I was told this year's HHN was one of the best yet. With the street experience being based off of the famous show, The Walking Dead, and boy did those "walkers" scare me good a few times. 

Here are a few things I learned about Halloween Horror Nights:

Tickets:
Sunday and Thursday are the cheapest days to go, followed by Friday and the most expensive is Saturday. Adding Scare & Scream discounts your HHN ticket. By far the best value is Frequent Fear. This allows you to go to multiple Halloween Horror Nights for one low price. 

(Click here for more information on tickets and to purchase them)

Express Pass:
Only have one night to enjoy HHN? This will help you bypass all those awfully long lines.

Scare & Stay:

I recommend adding Scare & Stay to your Universal ticket. Not only will the HHN ticket be cheaper it will allow you to stay in the park while they "flip it." Alan and I didn't purchase park-hopper so we stayed at Universal Studios the whole time, but you have the option to add it to a park-hopper ticket and spend the 1.5 hours of transition time at Islands of Adventure. I found it beneficial to just stay at Universal because once they are ready they release you into the park and you basically get to walk through the first coupon haunted houses that are immediately opened. Even though they said it was going to be a five minute wait, it was more like zero. Some of the houses don't open up right away for those that Scare & Stay. I remember they released us before 6:30PM and only two houses were open. We ended up walking around after going through the first two houses within 15 minutes just to wait for Evil Dead to open up at 6:30PM. What was awesome about our time that we just walked around was it was early enough that there was still light and we really got to soak in how they turned the park into scenes from The Walking Dead. 

Meal Deal:
If you redeem a 1-park meal deal at Universal, you must redeem your meals before 4:30PM on nights of Halloween Horror Nights. Meal deal also does not carry over to Halloween Horror Nights, I learned this the hard way =( 

Coke Freestyle Souvenir Cup:
This cup is AWESOME, but again this doesn't carry over during Halloween Horror Nights. So no free unlimited refills from the awesome Coke Freestyle machines, only $0.99 ones. 

Pictures:
Take your pictures early!!!! I cannot stress this enough. Once it gets dark there is so much fog from the fog machines that it makes it nearly impossibly to get a good photo, even by the professionals on site. 

RIP Tours aka VIP Tours:
RIP Tours basically allows you through all the houses and you get to go through the Fast Pass line and tour guides. RIP Tour pricing and availability vary depending upon the date and event hours. 

  • Private RIP Tours - You and your party of up to 10 guests will take part in a guided walking tour of a single Halloween Horror Nights event night. As the party consists of just your guests, the choice is yours as to how to spend your evening. Your RIP Guide can tailor the tour to the interests of your party to include not only the haunted houses and shows, but all available regular park attractions as well. Private RIP Tours depart nightly at 7:00PM and last until park closing, with a 30 minute break mid-way through. Price start at $1,250
  • Non-Private RIP Tours - You and your party, along with other RIP Tour guests, will be combined together and take part in a structured, guided walking tour of one Halloween Horror Nights event night. During the Non-Private RIP Tour you will experience all of our haunted houses (one time each), 2 regular park attractions and have reserved seating for Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure. Non-Private RIP Tours depart nightly at 8:00PM and last up to 4 hours with combined groups consisting of no more than 12 guests* per RIP Guide. Price starts at $109.99

  1. Cabin in the Woods
  2. An American Werewolf in London
  3. Havoc
  4. Evil Dead

Dorney Park Meal Deal Dining Plan Combo and Photo Dump!

When I went to Dorney Park this summer with my family and fiancee we were trying to figure out the best way to save money so that we could fully enjoy the park without busting our pockets. My family rented an awesome cabana at Wild Water Kingdom, which is actually closed for the season on September 1.

Alan and I decided that we would cover the tickets and add on the meal deal which turned out to be $43.99 when you purchase your ticket online and $54.99 if you purchase at the gate. This is only an additional $10 on top of regular adult online admission price, and let me tell you, it is totally worth it.

For that $10 we were able to get one meal and one snack, which was accepted at a wide variety of food locations. Click here to learn more about Meal Deals



The portions are huge and I couldn't even finish all my food.  Of course for our snack we got Dippin' Dots since you can't get them anywhere else except for theme parks.



One cool thing about Dorney Park is that they have TVs that show the status of rides and if they are running or down.



Alan is a huge roller coaster junkie and was happy when he was able to walk on to majority of the coasters while we were there. He was very happy =)

Hello Fellow Food Adventurers,

I have amazing news, Keurig is opening the doors of it's first store at Burlington Mall in Burlington, MA sometime this coming November, just in time for the holiday season. Here are a few of the things I'm really excited about:

So now you don't have to commit to one flavor you can pick as many or as little of one flavor as you'd like. They will be offering three different sizes: 3-count, 6-count, and 12-count. 
  • Not sure what you want? No biggie, they'll have an interactive tool that can help give you recommendations from over 200 different varieties.  

Interested in checking it out?

Big E - Photo Dump!

Hello Fellow Food Adventurers,

So I had such a great time at the Big E with Alan and my newest friend Kristina. She is an awesome baker and periodically will be sharing some of her amazing cake designs!
So if you remember from my last post about The Big E I was really excited about 3 things. This year I was happy to cross off at least two things off of that list. Check out all the photos from The Big E, enjoy!
I had to take a picture in front of this giant Big E billboard, I swear it was necessary. 



 No 'merican event is complete without trying on cowboy hats with a beer/ale in your hand.

 Ahhh the Pork Palace, there was pork in all forms at the Big E. There was even chocolate covered bacon!
 My new friend Kristina couldn't help herself and got a GIANT turkey leg and yes she did finish it all by herself.
 The Craft Corner was AWESOME. So many talented people selling handcrafted goods.
 This guy was actually making brooms from scratch, it was crazy.
 Need little pots for your doll house? At this tent they were making them by hand.
 For all you classic car lovers out there.
 After 1.5 hours of walking around the Big E we finally found where they house the cream puffs!!!!!
 These things were the size of my face!
 The proper way to eat a cream puff is by doing the twist and slide, which evenly distributes the delicious cream between the puff pastry. 
 This ride looked way to scary for anyone to ride. 
 They had crazy rides here, even a water ride, Big E is insane.
 hehe bananas.
 There was this alpaca stand that sold the softest everything. Here's Kristina all decked out in alpaca gear.
 The pig race was one of the cutest things at the fair.
This is Swifty, he's a famous swimming pig.
