Entrance to Halloween Horror Night at Universal Studios Florida
Everything To Know About Horror Nights At Universal Studios Florida
The main draw of Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) is the ten unique, themed haunted houses, where scare actors wait to frighten guests from the shadows.
Haunted Houses
Designers build houses with a level of quality equal to movie sets located in various soundstages, warehouses, and tent facilities throughout the park and backstage areas.
Outdoor scare zones complement the haunted houses by spilling the horror into the walkways, promenades, and plazas, each with a theme of its own.
Scare Zones
Unlike the attractions with wait lines, scare zones are large, open areas of the park that set the atmosphere and make for some killer HHN photo-ops for passing visitors.
Aside from the huge troupe of performers in houses and scare zones, an intense, hyper-sensory production plays to its adult audience in an amphitheater.
Another show uses the park's impressive lagoon infrastructure in a display of mesmerizing fountains and projections, the water utterly transfixing as it dances.
Specialty food kiosks throughout the park serve creative cuisine inspired by the themes of the event's haunted houses that are only available during HHN.
Spooky Treats
If visiting during the day, stop by the Tribute Store, which is open during regular park hours. The shop has a limited selection of Halloween merchandise and bakery items.
HHN tickets are entirely separate from daytime admission to any Universal Orlando park. However, Premier Annual Pass holders can get one free pass.
Tickets And Skipping Lines
Skip the crowds with an Express Pass, an add-on to your ticket that sends you to the front of the line in minutes. If you are only experiencing HHN once, it's worth the splurge.
Alternatively, V.I.P. tours (aptly named R.I.P. tours here) offer a guided evening of skipping lines with zero hassle. Prices fluctuate drastically based on your event date.
