(9/29/11) Halloween Horror Nights 21 – Review by Keith Trotter
ACID ASSAULT- Universal invested heavily and is very proud of their Acid Assault scarezone. All-new digital projection systems give the illusion that the buildings on New York Street are crumbling in an acid assault exposing the framework of the building which consequently crumbles to the ground leaving only a cloud of dust. They are cool effects and are similar to the projection system used at the Magic Kingdom for the nightly castle show. The possibilities are going to be endless in the years to come as the animation can be changed for anything they can dream up. I would expect to see these projection systems used at other events throughout the year as well. Get ready to see this scarezone use this technology for years to come.
YOUR LUCK HAS RUN OUT- This scare zone is located in the alley of the buildings in-between New York and San Francisco. Lady Luck and about ten of her clones have taken over this area, thrown roulette wheels all over the place, ripped the casino apart waiting for you to come along. As in the teaser campaign, you see different faces of lady luck, is she pretty? Or, is she a hideous wreck hidden in the shadows? You never know till you get up close.
