Halloween Horror Nights stands alone as the biggest Halloween event for the older kids. Universal doesn’t recommend the event for kids under the age of 13 but 16 and older may be a more appropriate age. The event can be pretty intense as the entire Universal Orlando theme park is turned over to chainsaw wielding freaks, ghouls, and goblins. If you do go to the event, be sure to arrive just as the park is opening and hit as many haunted houses right away as you can. You can normally get through 2 to 3 before the hour long waits start to occur.
Bill and Ted’s Halloween Adventure
Teenagers will mostly enjoy the cult Bill and Ted’s Adventure show that changes every year and mocks all of the pop culture icons of the current year in a grand production. This show also always includes several zingers for Disney World to let you know where you are and where you are not. Halloween Horror Nights begins during the last few days in the month of September and continues until Halloween Night.

For something a little different, take a ride on a haunted zip-line at the Screamline Haunted Zipline Adventure. This haunted zip-line experience will allow those brave enough and fool hearty enough to step off into the darkness 55 feet off the ground flying through the trees at speeds up to 25 miles per hour through 7 screaming zip-lines and 2 haunted bridges.
Take an 80 minute drive over to Tampa and visit Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens. Howl-O-Scream is equivalent to Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando in the type of haunted houses and scream zones that they have.
Disney World and SeaWorld
Disney has their Halloween events that we have listed for kids but they do not have anything equivalent to Halloween Horror Nights. SeaWorld’s Halloween Event is geared more towards little kids but teenagers will have a fun time trick-or-treating around the park.
