Haunted Houses

Each year, Universal offers an entirely new haunted house experience for each of it’s haunted houses.

The haunted houses at the 2018 event include:

  • Stranger Things
  • Halloween 4
  • Poltergeist
  • Trick’r Treat
  • The Horrors of Blum House
  • Carnival Graveyard Rust in Pieces
  • Dead Exposure Patient Zero
  • Scary Tales Deadly Ever After
  • Seeds of Extinction
  • Slaughter Sinema

Scare Zones

In between the haunted houses, Universal has areas of the park that called scare zones where actors in costumes will chase you around with scary masks and pretend chainsaws. The scare zones can almost be as intense as the houses themselves and continues to keep you on your toes while you are at the event.

In addition to the scare zones, Halloween Horror Nights hosts Academy of Villains: Cyberpunk, a stage show offering mix of dance, acrobatics and theatrics.

Florida Resident discounts for Halloween Horror Nights are also available here.
