Fans of Halloween Horror Nights 21 at Universal Orlando suffered from post-event depression as the past few days marked the first weekend during which the scare-fest was not around since its September debut. But fear not Halloween fans, as we offer a way to relive all the sights and screams featured throughout the Horror Nights streets.

Last year, Universal Orlando live streamed a full hour of video inside the “20 Years of Fear” and “XX: Fear Revealed” scare zones, which we archived for your future enjoyment. But since Universal did not offer the same inside look this year, I decided to capture something similar myself.

40 Minutes of Fear

On one of the last event nights in October, I spent an extra long time lingering around the scare zones of Halloween Horror Nights 2011 with video camera in-hand, capturing all the entertainment that made the park’s streets come to life throughout the Halloween season. Though not a full hour, this year I did capture 40 complete minutes from multiple angles around the scare zones 7, Grown Evil, Canyon of Dark Souls, Nightmaze, Acid Assault, and Your Luck Has Run Out, as well as ambience around the park’s entrance and the Lady Luck photo op, added to Horror Nights in late October, also featuring her Death Dealers with chainsaws. So if you’re going through withdrawal from Halloween Horror Nights 21 being over and want to see some of your favorite sights again, please enjoy the video below.

360-degree Panoramas

But that’s not all. In an attempt to fully capture the sense of being inside the scare zones of Halloween Horror Nights 21, I also shot 360-degree panoramic images, which allow you to drag your mouse to look around inside the event.

And with that, Halloween Horror Nights 21 is complete for us. Between the 40-minute video and 360-degree panoramas above, as well as our exhaustive event review with many more videos, we hope to make it easy for Halloween fans to continue to look back and virtually experience the all-too-short event as we guess what mysteries are in store for us in 2012 with Halloween Horror Nights 22.
