Acid Assault was one of the six scarezones that were featured during Halloween Horror Nights 21. In this ransacked city, acid rain has destroyed buildings, melted and burned people until they rot. Now they are doing whatever they can to survive. Most of the scareactors were people that were burned by the acid and some had gas masks on. It was located in New York.

History and Location[edit | edit source]

In 2011, Universal decided to have a scarezone based on the concept of acid rain. The scarezone would feature a city suffering from acid rain, where the citizens are burning and the buildings are collapsing. This scarezone is notable for being the first to use a projection on one of the buildings in the scarezone. The projection made the building look as if it was collapsing.

The scarezone would be located in the large New York area of the park, which is a recreation of the city of New York.

Description[edit | edit source]

For decades now the city has been degrading from the effects of Acid Rain that still falls today, caused by factories which sprung up on the city’s edges during the 20th century. Those that have lived and survived the blistering decay are all alone in the city. Survivors have stripped the city of all life to sustain their own…dare to enter the ACID ASSAULT!

Degrading from the effects of acid rain, those that have survived the blistering decay are all alone in the city.

Experience[edit | edit source]

Projections on the buildings of New York periodically crumbled throughout the evening, to show the rot of acid decay.

Several vehicles outlined the perimeter of the scarezone, including a school bus and a police car.

One of the scareactors in this scarezone rolled through the streets on a wheelchair.
