Halloween Horror Nights is currently happening at Universal Orlando Resort, and the event recently lost a couple of dates due to Hurricane Ian. With heavy winds and torrential rain, Universal and other area theme parks made the decision to close during the storm.
That may be the reason Universal made the decision to add two additional event dates to their spooky calendar, a decision that is bound to be popular with the Halloween loving crowd. Halloween Horror Nights is currently open each week Wednesdays through Sundays, with the final night being October 31.
The additional dates are Tuesday, October 11 and Monday, October 24, and tickets for those dates will be available for purchase on Tuesday, October 4. Guests wishing to take advantage of the new dates can buy their tickets on the website.
In addition to allowing guests to buy one night tickets, the new dates will also be valid for all Frequent Fear Passholders. This applies to Frequent Fear, Frequent Fear Plus and Ultimate Frequent Fear passes.
Halloween Horror Nights Passholders have added dates available as well.
Universal isn’t finished yet though: Premium Passholders are also getting a few extra dates to take advantage of for their Halloween Horror Nights free admission benefit – Wednesday, October 5, Tuesday, October 11 and Monday, October 24 have been added.
HHN attendees can make their way through 10 haunted houses and five scare zones, as well as attend two live shows. Hungry? Thirsty? Take advantage of Universal’s event-themed snacks, meals and beverages. And when you’re done with that, you can buy limited-time-only merchandise at the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store.
Not all of the park rides are open for Halloween Horror Nights, but some are, and you can also experience those. My personal favorite is The Mummy.
And speaking of personal favorites, having had the chance to attend HHN already, I can tell you that the haunted houses are loads of fun this year. The three I enjoyed the most were Dead Man’s Pier: Winter’s Wake, Bugs: Eaten Alive and Halloween. Honestly, there wasn’t a weak house in the whole bunch for me.
So, what are you waiting for? Jump on those newly added nights and experience Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights!
