Vamp '85: New Year' Eve was one of the five scarezones that was featured during Halloween Horror Nights 28. It was located in New York.

History and Location[edit | edit source]

On June 7th, 2018, Universal announced that a scarezone that served as a sequel to the 2016 scarezone, Vamp '55, would be coming to their Halloween Horror Nights event that year. The scarezone would feature vampires on the night of December 31st, 1984 celebrating the new year.

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]

As the ball drops in New York City, this New Year’s bash is about to bite. Literally.

It’s December 31, 1984. As the ball drops in New York City, this New Year’s Eve bash is about to bite. Literally. A blood-sucking DJ counts down the biggest hits of the 80s as fanged punks, big-haired blood-suckers and lace-gloved vampires hunt down partygoers. The howl of synthesizers masks your growing screams. When this year ends, so will you.

Experience[edit | edit source]

The scarezone featured actors playing terrified humans (including a news anchor and her cameraman), blood-drenched vampires dressed to the nines in 80s gear, and vampire versions of popular 80s stars such as Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, Prince, and Adam Ant.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Blake Braswell has said about this zone that it takes place on December 31, 1984, minutes from the ball drop ushering us into 1985 when a slew of vampires invade the party.
  • The zone features Punk Vampires, Hair Metal Vampires, Material Girl Vampires, and Vampires dressing up as their favorite musicians like Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, and others as vampires as well.
  • Every 20 or 25 minutes, the New Year's Ever ball would drop and metal/punk vampires and etc. would arrive and chase around guests.
  • Blake Braswell, when researching and working on the zone, had looked at the top 40 songs during 1984 and to him it was amazing, there were so many iconic songs that he felt would be great to use that when picking out songs for the zone there were 7 hours of music that was going to be used.
  • After seeing the success of Vamp '55 in 2016 definitely left the idea brewing in the minds of the creative team in putting the vampires into the 80s.
  • In 2020, a story based around Vamp '55 and this scarezone was released by Blake Braswell. The story would be called "Getting Ready for the Party".
