    I need some advice this year. We want to go to a haunted house (a good one). We have it narrowed down to Netherworld in Atlanta (3 hour trip for us, 4 hour for friends) or Universal Studios in Orlando (4 hours for us, 3 for them). Anyone been to either or preferably both?


    What do you think CU? I want scary, not cheesy. I'm even including a poll.

    Cool topic, dude! (Um, of course I would think so! :D)

    Sadly, for as long as I have lived in Orlando, I have never been to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights. But I know people who have gone and said it was very cool and very scary. On a side note--another local place I never visited, before it closed down--Orlando also had a downtown haunted house attraction, Terror on Church Street, that was also very scary...AND reportedly the site of actual hauntings, too.

    I went on to the Netherworld site and it looks pretty cool, as well. I love local, well-done haunted house attractions. The cheesier, the better. Reminds me of Halloween when I was just a little ol' Darkscribe.

    My brother goes to Halloween Horror Nights every year and has always loved it. The commercials are always creepy. I've never been.

    We do local after-dark graveyard walks with a guide, also a drinking tour of local haunted hotels.

    *sobs*

    It's not the same, is it?

    Go to Netherworld then. I've never heard anything about it. It would be fun to hear your review.

    As someone going to school in Orlando, I went to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights 4 times last year (That was the only way for me to hit all of the houses and shows there), and had a blast. I even posted a review of my experience there on the older version of the CU site. I am most definitely going this year, probably using the same strategy of going 4 nights (I have a frequent fear pass) to hit everything at my own pace.
    This year's event looks even better than last year's. I have been closely following the website and the web forum for it, it has a better, scarier Icon character than last year, and the Houses and Scarezones look great (I'm especially looking forward to going through the Scarezone called 'Path of the Wicked,' which is basically a dark, twisted version of the Wizard of Oz). I can't wait until opening night next Friday.
    So, in summation, you should go to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights.
