Summer’s end… Halloween next… Florida theme parks get ready
Every year before Halloween it becomes a blood bath between the Florida theme parks… Not literally or else there’d be no more Chinese tourists. I mean the competition for the best Halloween event is strong between the Seaworld, Universal, and Disney parks. Recently, each side publicized its Halloween event’s website…
Because of the playfulness of Seaworld’s Halloween Spooktacular and Disney’s “Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party,” there’s no hush-hush here as the kiddies are bound to load up on Mickey pumpkin parades or eat Shamu-shaped candies at these events (heh heh, now it’s time for humans to take a bite out of an orca and not vice versa!). Eh… I’m a big girl and don’t pay much attention to these two.
Meanwhile, the battle between the Spartans and the Persians had nothing on the competition I see between Busch Garden’s Howl-O-Scream and Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights. Groups of college students can spend entire evenings debating which is the better event. Both have actors leaping from hiding spots and scaring the pee out of unsuspecting passers-by, both have Halloween-themed shows, both have insane roller coasters to ride, and both have BEER waterfalling from the ceilings. These parks are still pretty secretive on the theming details of its events, but I’m sure both the websites AND the events are sure to be more bloody/gory as Halloween time approaches.
