Halloween Horror Nights return to Universal Orlando Resort

Halloween Horror Nights is now open at Universal Orlando Resort, featuring extra haunted houses and more scary attractions.

For a total of 36 nights through Nov. 3, guests can expect to experience cinematic greats, slasher films, cult classics and original nightmares inspired by the past in 10 disturbingly-real haunted houses, five scare zones and one powerhouse live show.

Things to do

This year, guests to Universal Orlando Resort's Halloween Horror Nights will:

  • Find themselves in the Upside Down where they will come face-to-face with the predatory Demogorgon from Netflix’s original series “Stranger Things
  • Be transported to the suburban town of Haddonfield, Illinois where the infamous slasher Michael Myers is hungry for revenge in “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
  • Fend off malevolent spirits in the Freeling house as they cross into the “light” in Metro Goldwyn Mayer’s (MGM) iconic supernatural horror film “Poltergeist
  • Live by the rules or suffer the consequences as Sam – the spirit of the Halloween – readies to punish those who break the dark holiday’s traditions in Legendary Pictures’ cult classic “Trick ‘r Treat,” directed by Michael Dougherty
  • Live the horrors of two terrifying films by Jason Blum – Happy Death Day and The First Purge  in “The Horrors of Blumhouse
  • Scream their way through five spine-chilling original haunted houses created by the twisted minds of Universal Orlando’s Entertainment team, including “Dead Exposure: Patient Zero,” “Slaughter Sinema,” “Carnival Graveyard: Rust in Pieces,” “Seeds of Extinction” and “ScaryTales: Deadly Ever After

Scare zones

"Scareators" in five highly-themed scare zones will invade the streets of Universal Studios Florida, two of which are based on classic ‘80s horror icons – MGM’s “Killer Klowns from Outer Space  and “Revenge of Chucky” – as well as three original concepts – “Vamp 85: New Year’s Eve,” “The Harvest” and “Twisted Tradition.”

Plus, Academy of Villains returns for its third consecutive year with an all-new show combining dance, acrobatics and theatrics in “Academy of Villains: Cyberpunk” – featuring a new storyline that tests humanity against technology.
