Admit it, you know who you are.

You look forward to getting scared silly at Universal Studio Orlando’s HHN every year, probably starting as you walk out of the park after your last house the year prior.

You are among like-minded fans here. Pull up a chair, take a deep breath and relax if only for a bit.

HNN’s scares are designed to make us feel good. The exact opposite of what we are globally currently tackling, that which is sorely sapping our collective energy and souls. This, too, will pass.

Planning for Orlando’s annual HHN can be therapeutic in the sense that it makes you feel good. It’s okay to continue having d̶a̶y̶d̶r̶e̶a̶m̶s̶nightmares about the big HHN 30th anniversary. There are proven psychological benefits of experiencing safe and anticipated fears.

Margee Kerr, a sociologist at the University of Pittsburgh studies fear. Talk about a dream job! She has discovered that once you are out of a scary situation, especially one that was never really a threat to begin with; feel-good endorphins course through your body. She describes it as: “...a reprioritizing of energy, of focus into the body. You’re grounded, not caught up in thinking...”

So, whether you plan on enjoying HHN or just riding a rollercoaster this fall, strap yourself in and enjoy the ride here. Don’t think about anything else...not your job, bills, food or whatever you are binge watching. While you are here, escape

If you are asking yourself, “What is HHN”? Soldier on...

HHN bears NO resemblance as to theme or tone versus WDW’s MNSSHP, aside from: being held during the haunting season, located in Orlando, an after-hours-extra fee event & is a ton of fun.

Trick or Treat time at Universal = a scare zones & haunted houses/mazes, not a candy grab. Although, if you are lucky Sam
561575
just might appear & offer to share his lollipop with you.

If you don’t know Jack
561576

& are asking yourself “what is HHN?”, then you just may want to keep it than way.

Otherwise, brace yourself, you are in for the fright of your life.

HHN IS INTENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES, WITH A RECCOMENDED MINIMUM AGE OF 13!

Universal self-states the event may be too intense for young children. This is not hyperbole or self promotion by any means. It is the truth.

Additionally, no costumes or mask are permitted in the event.

Halloween Horror Nights™ is held select nights each fall.

As the sun sets on days filled with thrills in all of Universal's theme parks, the night awakens with a frightening chill at Universal Studios Florida™.

It's the World’s Premier Halloween Event—bringing together the stories and visions of the most notorious creators of horror and taking them to the next level.

From cinematic greats and crazed current cult favorites to the park's original abominations—every year, the legend grows and the experience reaches beyond your wildest nightmares.

HAUNTED HOUSES
Enter terrifying haunted houses inspired by the biggest names in horror, plus Universal's own twisted creations. You're never quite sure if your spine is tingling with dread or sheer excitement.

SCARE ZONES
Surrounded in shadow by screams and mad laughter, face monstrous creatures on streets transformed into nightmarish scare zones.

ATTRACTIONS
Escape to some of Universal Studios' most exhilarating attractions where heart pounding takes on a different meaning—until the horror calls you back.

SHOWS
Lose yourself in outrageous live entertainment filled with diabolically entertaining surprises

HOUSES/MAZES - PART 1

Beetlejuice (announced 3/5)

Hillhouse (announced 7/8). Courtesy of Uofan.com

The Haunting of Hill House is “the chilling horror story follows members of the Crain family who are haunted by long-dormant fears stemming from their time living in the menacing Hill House as children and then forced to face the ghosts of its grisly past.”

Iconic scenes from the Netflix series will be featured throughout the maze, including the omni-powerful Red Room – the heart of Hill House – and the infamous Hall of Statues, where deceptive powers overtake everyone who enters. Apparitions will appear around every corner, from William Hill – The Tall Man, whose towering stature overwhelms everyone he encounters; to The Ghost in the Basement, who feverishly crawls throughout the bowels of the House in search of his next victim; to The Bent-Neck Lady, whose disturbing scream and ghastly appearance invoke a constant state of unnerving dread.
