Magic and Fright: Penn & Teller come to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

Halloween Horror Nights 22 is definitely featuring a pop culture theme this year, with houses connected to Silent Hill, creep rock god Alice Cooper's anthem "Welcome To My Nightmare," and Universal's amazing runaway hit The Walking Dead (coming back to AMC October 14, 2012). But they just announced the one that totally sold it for me -- Penn and Teller: New(kd) in Vegas. 

This is a dream (nightmare?) come true for fans of the world-renowned magicians, who have long been begging them to do some kind of Halloween event. The HHN22 attraction will be a 3D haunted house and maze that is a tour of a post-radiation accident Sin City. Kinda. Check out the tag copy:

World-renowned magicians Penn & Teller have accidentally nuked Las Vegas, but don’t worry, it’s nothing a fresh coat of paint and a truckload of BS can’t fix! Come on down to New Vegas, where all that glitters isn’t gold, and in fact probably has fatal levels of radioactivity. 

I can just hear Penn Jillette saying that. Can't you? I was on the HHN fence for a while this year, I admit it, but now I am totally sold. 

And speaking of sold, I'd advise you to get your Halloween Horror Nights 22 tickets now, before the event sells out. Again. Just like it does every year. 

If you can, be sure to spring for those Express Passes; on weekends and even weeknights as Halloween approaches, they can be the difference between seeing all the attractions or spending hours on line to only see one or two. They are cheaper earlier in the season and believe me, having them will make your night.
