Get ready, horror fans, Halloween is just around the corner, and so is Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights! Two of the houses have now been announced, and 1428 Elm is here to give you the info about what we know right now.
Universal Orlando Resort debuts Halloween Horror Nights on September 2, and guests can visit through October 31. There will be ten houses, five scare zones, two live shows and select attractions will remain open each night.
In Hollywood, the
fun begins September 8, with eight houses, an unspecified number of scare zones, the Terror Tram, one live show and multiple attractions.
So, what about those houses we mentioned? The first to be announced was Universal Monsters: Legends Collide, in which The Wolf Man, The Mummy and Dracula join forces in an attempt to find the amulet that will break their respective curses. Beware if you get in their way while they are on their quest, you may not make it out alive.
Halloween Horror Nights invites you to revisit “the night he came home.”
We all know what a great job HHN does paying homage to Samhain-themed films – I was thrilled with their rendition of Trick ‘r Treat, which is one of my favorites. They have already proven their expertise when it comes to a Halloween film so revered that it shares its title with the name of the holiday, and the repeat performance this year is bound to be hair-raising.
The second house announcement promises to take us back to the original 1978 version of Halloween, showing us some of the iconic scenes that fans know so well. That’s right, guests will step right into scenes revisiting the story of Michael Myers’ original murderous rampage.
victims guests can also take an RIP tour, which offers priority entry to houses and participating attractions, or a Behind The Screams: Unmasking the Horror tour, during which you can take a lights-on daytime tour of either 3 or 6 houses. If you don’t want to get that up close and personal, but also don’t want to spend a lot of time waiting in line to visit the houses, take advantage of the Express Pass, which allows you to skip the lines once for each house, and also for participating attractions.
Themed food will also be available, and the Halloween Horror Nights-themed merchandise is always plentiful and amazing (tip: for the best Orlando merchandise experience, visit the Tributes store). For more information on tickets and pricing, visit the website for either Orlando or Hollywood.
Keep your eyes on 1428 Elm, because we will update you as we learn more about the Halloween Horror Nights events.
