This is mainly about Halloween, Horror, Night and Halloween Horror Nights. And showtunes, whatever mad obsessions haunt my fevered brain... and oh yes, cats (and hot guys).

As you can see there is a bit of audience participation sometimes in this show!

The first of these is Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees, a fabulous Diva of a Singing Sorceress with her magical backup girls!

theclassickindofguy said: After seeing Universal Studios evolve since it's opening. What do you wish could be brought back, and what would you like to have for a new experience?

Well I miss the JAWS and Back to the Future Rides, but I don’t want what replaced them to go away! Perhaps they could bring back new and improved versions of those in new areas? Also it would be nice to see the Ghostbusters again.

Oh, and don’t forget, there is something new coming to replace Twister. Something rather very top secret.

I wonder what it might be????

Another attraction at Diagon Alley which has also been retro-fitted into Hogsmeade as well at The Wizard World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort are the Interactive Wands.

Guests who purchase such wands at Ollivanders can now play the part of actual Wizards and Witches rather than just visiting Muggles. A handy map shows the location of certain points where a flick of these wands with the appropriate incantation will produce magical effects.
