When it comes to theme parks that go all out for the Halloween season, it’s kinda hard to top Universal Studios. Their highly anticipated Halloween Horror Nights is a yearly event that sees the Orlando, Hollywood, Sentosa (Singapore), and Konohana-ku (Japan) reskin themselves once the sun goes down into centers of terror. Having been in attendance the past two years, I can promise you that horror fans will be delighted by the haunted houses and mazes as well as the “scare zones”, sections of the park that are themed after popular horror movies/tropes.
Tickets for this year’s HHN have officially gone on sale and I strongly urge anyone who can make it happen to get on this. It’s an event that will stick with you for the rest of your life, promise!
The press release explains:
“On the heels of last year’s immensely popular event, the ‘80s will return with a vengeance to Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. All-new horrifying experiences inspired by some of the biggest frights of the era will invade the world’s premier Halloween event – offering no escape from the decade that just won’t die. Guests will face 10 elaborately themed haunted houses based on everything from Netflix’s Stranger Things, Universal Pictures’ legendary Universal Monsters, plus other cinematic greats and crazed cult favorites, to original abominations created by the twisted minds of Universal’s Entertainment team. They’ll navigate five sinister scare zones throughout the park, each filled with menacing scareactors. And when they need a break from the scares, guests can enjoy Universal Studios’ most exhilarating rides and attractions.“
