About This Episode

Halloween Horror Nights has always played an important part in Universal Studios’ history.

Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) has transformed the horror industry by creating their own dreadful storylines and characters, as well as placing you right in the middle of your favorite scary movies. On select nights in the fall in Universal Studios Florida, you can step into terrifying haunted houses, come face-to-face with ghastly creatures in scare zones, and marvel at mind-bending live shows. Written words don’t do the event justice, but it’s so realistic and intense, there’s a reason why Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando has earned the title of the “World’s Premier Halloween Event”.

If you’re visiting the theme parks soon for the first time and just hearing of Halloween Horror Nights, this video will give you a glimpse of what to expect during your upcoming fall vacation. The same goes for you if you’re a local and looking for something bigger and better to do for this Halloween season. And for all you fellow die-hard HHN fans, share your own tips for the event in the comments below to help these soon-to-be first timers.

During Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando, there is nowhere safe to escape to in the theme park. The streets transform into demented scare zones that are swarming with creatures and monsters that are birthed from the darkness like hellish demons, morbid deformities, and the undead. You are quite literally walking through real life nightmares, including scare zones themed to popular horror movies and TV shows. Oh, and watch out for the roaming chainsaw hordes!

Every year there are new live shows that bring horror to life in a whole new way. In the past, there have been pulse-pounding dance troupes, mind-bending acts, pop-culture infused comedy skits, and a jaw-dropping lagoon show. These performances are perfect for those who may not be too keen with the intense scares of haunted houses, but still want some thrills.
