5 Reasons to Visit Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights

Come face to face with classic terror, cult favorites, and original creations at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando! For 10 immersive and terrifying mazes, multiple scare zones, live shows, and more, you won’t want to miss the nation’s premier Halloween event this year!

So Much To Haunt Your Nightmares

Halloween Horror Nights offers so much to do that it's difficult to fit into a single night - 10 haunted mazes, multiple scare zones, live shows, and even themed food and drinks are all available only during the event. Plus, Halloween Horror Nights rarely repeats the same properties each year, and the mazes for each year’s event are re-done for each new event, so most everything you'll see will be unique to this year. This makes the event incredibly repeatable, as there’s always new scares, new concepts, and new characters and icons to see each year.

Multiple Generations of Favorites

Halloween Horror Nights features multiple horror properties every year, which can range from well-known horror classics to smaller cult favorites, but there's a little something for everyone. This year, Halloween Horror Nights is covering multiple generations, from the classic Universal monster movies of the 30s, 40s, and 50s, to 1984 favorite 'Ghostbusters', to recent Netflix hit 'Stranger Things'.

Unique Original Concepts

While it's always exciting to see what films or shows will be featured at each year’s Halloween Horror Nights, the event's unique original concepts are also fantastic to see. The team behind Halloween Horror Nights let their imaginations run wild for their original concept houses, which can range from haunted ghost towns to demonic scarecrows to horrifying fractured fairy tales. We’ve consistently been amazed by the effort put into these houses, such as boarding a life-size half-sunken steamboat in a haunted bayou – it’s an awesome experience for horror fans to see these original concepts executed with such detail.

Add to the Horror

If you're looking for even more ways to enjoy Halloween Horror Nights beyond the event itself, there are also several fun add-ons to choose from. Get up close with some of the event's scareactors during the Scareactor Dining Experience, including an all-you-care-to-eat buffet. If you want to learn more about the design of the haunted mazes, you can take the Unmasking the Horror Tour, a daytime lights-on tour of select mazes. Or, if you want the ultimate stress-free way to experience Halloween Horror Nights, you can splurge on the RIP Tour, which includes front-of-the-line access for all the event's haunted mazes, even beyond what Express Pass offers.

More Nights than Ever

This year also marks the longest Halloween Horror Nights season ever, with the event starting on September 6 and running until November 2.
