History and Location[edit | edit source]
On August 30th, 2013, Universal announced that an original 3-D haunted house based on the afterlife experiences of a serial killer named Bobby "The Blade" Galletta would be featured at their Halloween Horror Nights event that year. The house would bring guests through the afterlife, where his previous victims would seek revenge on him.
In 2006, Universal built two hurricane-proof tents behind the World Expo area of the park specifically for holding Halloween Horror Nights haunted houses. This house would be located in the northernmost one (called Sprung Tent 2).
Description[edit | edit source]
Serial killer, Bobby “The Blade” Galletta, is about to meet Ole’ Sparky. 2000 volts are going to send him into a horrific realm of pain and suffering. His victims are bound to turn Bobby’s afterlife into an unimaginable and infernal torment.

Queue and Facade[edit | edit source]
The queue entrance was located to the right of the Men in Black restrooms. It went down a road that led to the front of Sprung Tent 2 where it would then continuously loop around the side of the Men in Black building. The queue video was projected on the side of the Men in Black building which detailed the backstory of the house.
As guests approached the sprung tent, they would be able to see the facade for the house. The facade included police cars and a group of newspapers detailing the capture of Bobby, which guests would walk through to enter the house.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This house contains Old Smokey (which is renamed Ole' Sparky for this house), which is an electric chair that was featured in many haunted houses at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando. It appeared in the opening scene of the house, which was the execution of Bobby Galletta.
- This house would be the first house to use 3D technology without comedy.
- The Revolving Tunnel (a spinning and disorientating tunnel that guests would walk through) appeared in this house. The effect would later be used in a couple more haunted houses, with the next one being Asylum in Wonderland 3D during Halloween Horror Nights 25.
- The writing on The Carey Truth news paper reads "Bobby "The Blade" Galletta is going to be executed today at eleven thirty p.m. by electrocution. Bobby is responsible for the murder of twenty two residents of Carey, Ohio. The first murders occurred in June of ninteen thirty three and continued October thirteenth that same summer. Bobby left most of the victims bodies displayed in areas where they would be found early morning travelers. No clues were left to indicate where the crimes were committed. Bobby did move from place to place through out the Carey County, never leaving. BLADE THE KILLER see pg.2."
