REVIEW: El Terror de las Momias Scare Zone at Halloween Horror Nights 2023 in Universal Studios Hollywood

One of three scare zones at Halloween Horror Nights 2023 in Universal Studios Hollywood is El Terror de las Momias (The Terror of the Mummies).

The zone was inspired by 1950s Mexican horror films about Aztec mummies (Momias Aztecas). The HHN crew created fictional movies to base the zone around, and guests can spot posters for those fake films around the zone.

Review

Of the three scare zones, this one had more detailed scenery. It’s a little bit out of the way, so you don’t have to pass through it to get to a house or really anywhere in the park. But this means it’s less crowded and more surprising.

We saw some great scares from Scareactors who blend in with guests a bit until they make sudden movements.

The long path allows the Scareactors to roam more. There are animatronic skeletons at each end of the zone. We were scared by Scareactors a few times because we were distracted listening to a talking skeleton.

The lighting is beautiful. In all, there were plenty of scares, but it also felt more peaceful because it wasn’t a high-traffic area.

It’s very different from the Toyz and Ghostz scare zones, but we loved it.
