Do you love being scared? Or if you want to challenge your inner scaredy cat, then you are in luck. That’s right, with October on the horizon, Halloween Horror Nights is back for its thirtieth year of fear! If you are planning to make the drive up to Orlando, here are some things you can expect.
There will be nine haunted houses including: Netflix's’ The Haunting of Hill House, Beetle Juice, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Universals’ Monsters the Bride of Frankenstein Lives, Welcome to Scary: Horror in the Heartlands, Case Files Unearthed Legendary Truth, The Wicked Growth: Realm of the Pumpkin, Puppet Theatre Captive Audience, Revenge of the Tooth Fairy, and the most exciting HHN Icons Captures, which will showcase some of Halloween Horror Nights most scary and famous characters.
Aside from the haunted houses there will be a total of five scare zones, these will include: Crypt Tv, 30 Years 30 Fears, Seek and Destroy, Gorewood Forest, and Lights Camera Hacktion. And it would not be Universal without live entertainment, so Halloween Horror Nights will be putting on not one, but two live shows: Marathon of Mayhem and Halloween Nightmare Fuel.
While last years’ HHN was cancelled due to covid they are allowing guests who purchased tickets last year to use them for this years’ event. In the houses the actors are mostly seen behind plexiglasses or masked to protect guests. After night one a survey was done, and guests said the attraction and fear was not ruined by either of those things.
This event started September third and continues until October thirty-first. A single night pass will cost seventy dollars if you purchase online. Jack the Clown wants everyone to know, this year will be unlike any other.
