Rob Zombie’s Cult Classic Movie from Lionsgate “House of 1000 Corpses” is the Inspiration for Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort’s All-New Twisted “Halloween Horror Nights” Maze

Universal City, CA, Orlando, Fla., August 14, 2019 – Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort take guests on a relentless tour through multi-platinum recording artist and filmmaker Rob Zombie’s twisted “House of 1000 Corpses,” inspired by Lionsgate’s 2003 cult classic horror film, as part of this year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” event, beginning in September.

Rob Zombie’s Cult Classic Movie from Lionsgate “House of 1000 Corpses” is the Inspiration for Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort’s All-New Twisted “Halloween Horror Nights” Maze

The terrifying “House of 1000 Corpses” mazes bring to life the movie’s offbeat roadside tourist attraction, Captain Spaulding’s Museum of Monsters and Madmen, and introduces guests to some of the country’s most infamous serial killers, including Dr. Satan, a demented surgeon who has gone mad. 

Without a moment to catch their breath, guests will venture to the chaotic home of the Firefly family, a sadistic clan of psychotic killers, where the psychosis deepens and the depraved thrive. It is a chilling journey into the netherworld of terror that weaves its way through a cavernous network of dark tunnels within the bowels of the house.  Populated by the degenerate victims of Dr. Satan’s debauched operations, legions of tortured creatures shuffle about as Dr. Satan continues his twisted medical practice, eagerly awaiting a new installment of victims. 

Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 25 years, guests from around the world have visited “Halloween Horror Nights” to become victims inside their own horror film.  Multiple movie-quality mazes based on iconic horror movies, television shows and original stories come to life season after season. The terror bleeds to the streets of the parks with highly-themed scare zones, littered with menacing scare-actors lunging from every darkened corner to torment, terrify and scare “Halloween Horror Nights” guests.

“Halloween Horror Nights” begins Friday, September 6 in Orlando and on Friday, September 13 in Hollywood. Additional details about the events will be revealed soon. Tickets for “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort are on sale now. Visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com for more information and to purchase tickets.

City of Santa Clarita Focuses on School Safety for the New School Year, providing multiple resources for the Community.

The City of Santa Clarita Provides Resource Deputies, Drug Prevention Programs and Much More to Keep Your Students Safe.

Santa Clarita, Calif. – This week marks back to school time for all of the elementary districts and the William S. Hart Union High School District here in the Santa Clarita Valley. The City of Santa Clarita would like to welcome students back to class and remind everyone of important safety messages and programs.

“It is important to the City Council, and the City as a whole, that these vital programs and enhancements are included in our budget,” said City Manager Ken Striplin. “Our DFY in SCV program has reached more than 55,000 students since it began back in 2012. It has grown and evolved to meet the specific needs of our community. We take the safety and well-being of our residents seriously and want to do all we can to make it a safe and successful school year for all.”

“This is an exciting time for both parents and students,” said Mayor Marsha McLean. “We want to remind drivers to expect more students in the crosswalks, especially around local schools. Please drive cautiously in these areas and leave early to give yourself extra time to get where you are going.”

The City has also developed a data-driven program to enhance safety for pedestrians and drivers in school areas. The City continuously analyzes traffic data and uses the information gathered to enhance its Crossing Guard program, which provides crossing guards at 39 crosswalk sites in all four school districts within the City of Santa Clarita.

The City is also conducting studies and reviewing designs for its Safe Routes to School program, which will identify walking routes for students and families around schools that minimizes the need to cross busy intersections. A new Pedestrian Scramble traffic signal phase at Seco Canyon Road and Decoro Drive, near Santa Clarita Elementary School and Arroyo Seco Junior High, will modify the existing traffic sequence to allow for all pedestrians to cross at once while traffic is stopped. This modification will be in effect during busy morning drop-off and after-school pick-up hours to enhance pedestrian safety and reduce vehicle back-up.

Another way the City is creating a safe environment on campus is by partnering with the William S. Hart Union High School District to provide school resource deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“Not only does our amazing team of school resource deputies help keep school campuses safe, they also help educate students on everything from personal safety and internet safety – to bike and pedestrian safety,” said Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Captain Robert Lewis.

The City’s Drug Free Youth in the Santa Clarita Valley team, or DFY in SCV, has already kicked off the school year, welcoming new students at registration events. At the elementary school level, City staff introduce the message of saying “no” to drugs and alcohol through age-appropriate workbooks, as well as various assemblies that teach about the dangers of drugs and strategies for making positive choices. As kids get older, they have the opportunity to join drug-free clubs and develop a positive peer network in junior high and high school, while also giving back to the community through community service projects.

“It is important to the City Council, and the City as a whole, that these vital programs and enhancements are included in our budget,” said City Manager Ken Striplin. “Our DFY in SCV program has reached more than 55,000 students since it began back in 2012. It has grown and evolved to meet the specific needs of our community. We take the safety and well-being of our residents seriously and want to do all we can to make it a safe and successful school year for all.”

Other City initiatives, such as the award-winning Heads Up! program, continue to reinforce positive behaviors in youth when it comes to traffic safety, pedestrian awareness and making positive choices as a new driver.

Street Smarts: City Using New Traffic Pattern Near Santa Clarita Elementary School to increase Safety.

Pedestrian Scramble Cycle will Increase Safety and Circulation

Santa Clarita, Calif. – To improve pedestrian safety and reduce traffic congestion, the City of Santa Clarita will use a pedestrian scramble traffic cycle at Seco Canyon Road and Decoro Drive during the school year, beginning Tuesday, August 13, 2019. Drivers and pedestrians using the intersection, which is adjacent to Santa Clarita Elementary School and Arroyo Seco Junior High School, will notice the new cycle during the schools’ morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal times.

To improve pedestrian safety and reduce traffic congestion, the City of Santa Clarita will use a pedestrian scramble traffic cycle at Seco Canyon Road and Decoro Drive during the school year, beginning Tuesday, August 13, 2019.

Due to the high volume of pedestrians crossing at the intersection and vehicular traffic during these times, the traffic signal will be modified to include a pedestrian scramble phase sequence. This phase enables all pedestrians to cross the intersection simultaneously while all vehicular traffic is stopped.

This timing eliminates vehicular-pedestrian conflicts, making it safer for students and families to cross the street. Additionally, traffic circulation will be greatly improved because vehicles will no longer need to wait for high volumes of pedestrians to cross the street during a green light before they can make a turn.

The new pedestrian scramble phase will operate on school days only. On non-school days and during times other than those identified, the signal at this intersection will follow a standard signal operation sequence.

For more information about the implementation of the pedestrian scramble phase, please contact the City of Santa Clarita’s Traffic Signal System Administrator, Cesar Romo, at cromo@santa-clarita.com.
