Every year starting in September, Universal Orlando Resort begins their long-anticipated Halloween Horror Nights. While most theme parks in the Orlando area bring the not-so-scary aspects, Universal uses the scariest and most horrifying parts to continuously bring the true meaning of “fear” to life. The park is completely decked out in Halloween gear, from pumpkins in the trees and fog that consumes guests as they enter the different parts of the park.
The unearthly atmosphere invites teenagers and adults to be shaken to the core by experiencing their favorite horror movies and shows. TV and movie-based houses–including “American Horror Story,” Saw, “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” The Horrors Of Blumhouse and The Shining–take the stage alongside original houses like Hive, The Fallen, Scarecrow The Reapening and Dead Waters.
Crowds are usually large. The houses are accompanied by a variety of scare zones that are scattered around the park. These include The Purge, Invasion, Altars of Horror, Festival of the Deadliest and Trick’r Treat. Universal, with their almost-movie-ready production sets and talented actors, truly brings the true meaning of fear out of park guests and adds a classic Halloween attraction to the Orlando area.
The price to enter this chilling event varies depending on the date within of the two months it runs, as well as depending on the day. Usually, the price is between $53 and $89. This fee includes park admission, access to nine haunted houses, five scare zones, two shows and also Universal’s usual thrilling rides.
