Universal Orlando Halloween Horror Nights 2016

I’m a little late to the table with this haunted attraction review, but I have a really good excuse. This was a last minute, spur-of-the-moment trip to Orlando. The tween had a ½ day of school on Friday, and then no school on Monday or Tuesday (thank you Election Day, end of the semester, and […]

Halloween Horror Nights 2016: ‘Krampus’ comes to Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando

Deep in the dead of winter, the stage is set for a centuries old tale of terror. The “half-goat, half-demon” horned creature known as Krampus has emerged to terrorize those lacking the spirit of the holidays. In scenes from the 2015 horror flick, guests will navigate the dysfunctional Engel family’s home where they’ll encounter the […]

Loews Sapphire Falls Resort to open at Universal Orlando in 2016

The Caribbean is coming to Orlando. Universal Orlando, to be exact. I love a good theme, and if I can’t be in the actual Caribbean, staying somewhere that looks like the Caribbean is the next best thing. Being so close to the magic of Universal’s theme parks (which includes Harry Potter, Diagon Alley and Hogwarts) […]

‘The Walking Dead’ to come to life at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights

You can’t keep a good man down. Or even, so it seems, a dead one. Season three is the scene and Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando are the stages for the Emmy-Award winning AMC series “The Walking Dead” as it makes its second year run at Halloween Horror Nights (HHN). Universal Orlando is dedicating its […]

Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 23: ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ comes to life

As much as I love the sunshine of summertime, I would have to say that Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays. Haunted houses,devious decorations, perfectly themed settings and being scared senseless are all at the top of my list for an entertaining evening. When else is it perfectly acceptable to scream your head […]

Springfield is coming to Universal Studios Orlando. D’oh!

If you haven’t heard by now, there is big news coming out of Universal Studios Orlando. And its initials are not H.P. this time. Springfield, home to America’s favorite wisecracking, slacking and beer drinking animated family, is coming to life at Universal Orlando. Guests to Universal Studios will soon be able to walk the streets […]

Summer 2013: Theme Park Christian Music Festivals

Theme parks provide thrilling rides and fun times for the whole family.  They also offer some fun extras such as concerts and shows.  Most parks put on a music festival or two throughout the season.  I’ll be updating this page as I hear of new festivals and events, so check back often. Rock the Universe […]

Spread the Good: Voluntourism with Universal Orlando and Give Kids the World

One of the many benefits of my job as a writer is that I get to share news, events and attractions with others.  A lot of the activities and events are things that I actually do myself, but an equal amount involves just getting the word out about good things that are going on, whether […]

An Ode to National Pi(e) Day

In honor of National Pi Day (3.14 on 3/14, get it?), I thought I would celebrate with my favorite type of Pi.  Being the literate, and non-mathematical, type of person that I am, my favorite type of Pi does not involve math.  No, my favorite type of Pi is spelled “Pie” and it involves eggs, […]

Happy Wholidays from Universal’s Islands of Adventure

Seuss Landing is easily the most festively decorated spot in all of the Universe (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida, that is).  Sure, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is always snow-covered and stocked with snowmen and steam engines, but all of the greenery and red-trimmed wreaths just add a special sparkle […]
