Halloween Horror Nights is Back at Universal


HHN will have an American Horror Story house this year

Halloween Horror Nights will be held at Universal Orlando on select nights from September 16th through October 31st. It will begin at 6:30 pm and end between 1:00 am and 2:00 am each night. Admission prices may vary, depending on the date. On Sundays through Thursdays, the cost will be $55.99 per ticket. On Fridays, each ticket will cost $66.99 and on Saturdays each ticket will cost $82.99.

This year, there will be nine haunted houses throughout the park. The houses include American Horror Story, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Walking Dead, The Exorcist, Hell Comes to Haddonfield, Krampus, Lunatics Playground 3D, Ghost Town, and Tomb of the Ancients.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Brianna Jackson, a Wiregrass Ranch High School (WRHS) Senior, shares her opinion on this year’s themes.

“I am most definitely looking forward to the American Horror Story haunted house,” says Jackson. “I love the T.V series and it would be exciting, yet frightening to actually experience it.”

Apart from the haunted houses, there will also be five different scare zones, located at random spots along the streets.

The Halloween Horror Nights website provides a description of the scare zones.

“Make your way through five nightmarish scare zones where gory and grotesque creatures lurk around every turn.”

There will be two stage performances each night of the event. The shows will include “Academy of Villains” and “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure.”

During the event there will be a few rides open as well. Transformers, Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket, Revenge of the Mummy, Men in Black Alien Attack, The Simpsons, and Harry Potter will all be open.

Brittny Force, a senior at WRHS, shares her thoughts.

“I am really excited for Halloween Horror Nights this year. I’m glad that my favorite ride (Harry Potter) will be open too,” Force says.

All Halloween lovers are encouraged to attend Halloween Horror Nights and are guaranteed to have a blast!
