Universal Parks & Resorts are full of surprises, as the same day they announced their new family theme park in Texas they also revealed plans for a year-round "horror experience" as part of Area15's 20 acre upcoming expansion.  You know, it is almost as if Universal's owner Comcast, figured out that if you do it right, parks and attractions can be like printing money!

Anywho, the permanent entertainment experience will be one of the larger tenants of the Area15 expansion, taking up 110,000 square feet - which is a really big building if you google it.  The company says that it will be filled with "a variety of unique, immersive, fantastic horror-centric experiences that surround high energy food and beverage spaces by day turned haunting bars and eateries by night."  They promise that the location will also feature "a continuously updated experience, must see seasonal events, and one-of-a-kind merchandise."  Horror Nights fans rejoice, now you can get your scare on year-round in sin city courtesy of Universal's "vast library of classic horror films and today’s most terrifying tales."
