More so than the city's other haunted attractions—even those at big tourist parks—the one at Universal Studios feels a bit over-branded. Many of its mazes are based on franchises, such as AMC's The Walking Dead, The Purge and Alien vs. Predator. They do make for some pretty fun walk-throughs, but there's something about that level of corporate partnership that just ceases to be scary. New this year: a creepy clown maze with music by Slash.
