On the Go in MCO: Spooky, Kooky, and Eerie Local Halloween Fun 

The Haunted Road
On the Go In MCO Halloween Fun October 2021 Haunted Road

If you’re ready for scares from the comfort of your car, The Haunted Road, a drive-thru Halloween attraction at Corn Maze Orlando, has returned for its second year on select nights through November. 

The immersive outdoor theater show brings a mix of familiar characters, twisted creatures, and unexpected scares to horror fans visiting the social distance-friendly event.

After launching in 2020, the cast and crew quickly realized everything was not as it seemed. Rumor spread that tortured souls who died on the land materialize when the sun sets, resulting in paranormal phenomena and eerie occurrences.

Through trial and error, we learned how to disrupt these spirits and conjure up on-demand ghost sightings for travelers to witness. But proceed at your own risk… it is unclear if the spirits remain to ward off future victims or lure unsuspecting travelers to join them as part of The Haunted Road.

On the Go In MCO Halloween Fun October 2021 The Barnyard

Also New this year is The Barnyard, an add-on experience, that has a Haunt Market, the Ol’ Watering Hole with beverages, BBQ, and of course scares with roaming performers and the Abandoned Butcher Barn haunted experience.  

Gatorland’s Gators, Ghosts, and Goblins

Then, grab your Lederhosen for Frank & Steins Ooky Kooky Octoberfest featuring live music from “Polkageist,” Gatorland’s own undead polka band as well as German beer and food for purchase.

Halloween Horror Nights News: Complete Line-Up Revealed

HHN 30 Full Lineup

The Universal Orlando Resort has finally unveiled the complete lineup of unfathomable terrors for Halloween Horror Nights 2021, including an array of twisted original haunted houses, five scare zones, and two live shows.

Guests will brave this collection of haunts and more when the world’s premier Halloween event returns to Universal Studios Florida to celebrate 30 years of fear on select nights September 3 through October 31.

Halloween Horror Nights Complete Line-Up of Terrors

10 HAUNTED HOUSES

Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House

Halloween Horror Nights 2021 The Haunting of Hill House

Netflix’s critically-acclaimed series “The Haunting of Hill House” will bring its ominous presence to the Universal Orlando Resort in an all-new maze, awakening the imposing and mysterious Hill House as it beckons guests to embark on the dark journey experienced by the Crain family.

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.

Testing even the bravest guests, they’ll attempt to escape the entanglement of the estate’s eternal stranglehold or succumb to the powerful forces of Hill House – leaving them to wander the endless halls forever…alone.

Beetlejuice

Halloween Horror Nights - Beetlejuice Artwork

Beetlejuice was the first “ghost host” of Halloween Horror Nights – originally called ‘Fright Nights’ – during the event’s debut in 1991. As Halloween Horror Nights 2021 celebrates a milestone year, this former host will become the supernatural star of a bone-chilling haunted house based on Warner Bros. Pictures and Tim Burton’s Academy Award-winning horror-fantasy film. Guests will be at the whim of the self-described “Bio-Exorcist” as they shadow Beetlejuice’s every move through artfully recreated scenes from the popular film. From the infamous haunted attic within the Maitland home to the model graveyard and Dante’s Inferno Room, guests will have the extraordinary chance to enter the movie surrounded by its most iconic characters. With brash defiance, Beetlejuice is ready to turn on the juice and see what shakes loose – and his plans don’t include returning to the land of the unliving.

  • The Caretaker, a once well-respected surgeon who has become eerily infatuated with the removal of internal organs – especially while his patients are conscious

  • The Usher, who seeks to invoke violent vengeance on those who don’t follow the rules of his theater
  • The Storyteller, who stops at nothing to entrap guests into her latest tales of terror, where no one lives happily ever after

They’ll find the Pasek’s Puppet Troupe trapped within its ruins in the midst of rehearsing for their next grisly performance.

With a fanatical need to entertain any captive audience, the troupe has turned to transforming trespassers into living puppets – dismantling and sewing them back together as life-sized marionettes for additions to their horrific encore.

Will guests escape in one piece or will it be their final curtain call? No matter what, the show must go on…

The Haunted Road Returns to Petrify Passengers

Haunted Road 2021

Orlando’s first drive-thru Halloween experience, The Haunted Road, is ecstatic to bring back some socially distant scares to Central Florida this fall. Admission to the road will be open select evenings from September 30 through November 7, 2021 and tickets will – fittingly – go on sale on August 13, the only Friday the 13th of 2021.

The Haunted Road will return to Lake Pickett Road in the same location as Corn Maze Orlando and Painted Oaks Academy.

While the 2020 experience featured an original, twisted storyline centered around Rapunzel and other familiar fairytale characters, this year’s experience is far from fictional. By day, the land is seemingly ordinary, but after sunset, eerie occurrences, paranormal phenomena, and ghost sightings are the norm. 

Noticing that last year’s cast and crew were constantly discussing bizarre happenings, the team did a deep dive into the area’s history and discovered that the site is truly haunted. People in the area often recount similar, inexplicable experiences such as issues with their radios and the appearance of a glowing green orb on damp and stormy nights. Through trial and error, The Haunted Road’s team have learned how to disrupt these spirits and conjure up on-demand ghost sightings for visitors to witness. In addition to encouraging frequent ghost sightings along the roadside attraction, enhancements have been made for entertainment purposes.

“After a few seriously spooky things happened along The Haunted Road, we decided to harness the natural scary occurrences and allow visitors to navigate into ghost sighting areas to witness it for themselves.” said Jessica Mariko, executive producer for The Haunted Road.

Mariko is leading a team of award-winning creative minds who have worked on globally-renowned attractions to identify and define the ghost-sighting areas on The Haunted Road.

The Haunted Road Logo

Visitors are invited on a 40-minute drive down The Haunted Road to seek out some of these mysterious occurrences from the “safety” of their car. Admission to the main experience starts at $15.99 per person and takes place primarily from within the vehicle with an optional outdoor add-on excursion in The Barnyard, located at the end of the road. The $79 upgrade to The Barnyard allows all of the vehicle’s passengers to explore a Haunt Market, purchase smoked BBQ and beverages, and attempt to awaken the spirit of The Butcher in a walk-in haunted experience located in an abandoned barn.

The Haunted Road has timed-entry ticketing and tickets must be purchased online in advance. The majority of the 2020 time slots sold out so fear enthusiasts are encouraged to sign up online for access to the pre-sale, an opportunity to reserve tickets at their preferred times before sales open to the general public Friday at noon. Get more information and sign up at www.thehauntedroad.com.

Halloween Horror Nights 30: New Maze Announcement

Halloween Horror Nights 2021 The Haunting of Hill House

For the first time ever, Netflix’s critically-acclaimed series “The Haunting of Hill House” will bring its ominous presence to the Universal Orlando Resort in an all-new maze for Halloween Horror Nights 2021, which officially begins on September 3, 2021 at Universal Studios Florida!

Upon its release, Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House” became a worldwide phenomenon of unsettling proportions that elevated the horror television genre. Created, directed, and executive-produced by horror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Gerald’s Game) and executive produced by Trevor Macy via their Intrepid Pictures, 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.

“I have loved Halloween Horror Nights for so long,” said Flanagan, Creator, Director and Executive Producer of “The Haunting of Hill House.” “Some of my favorite memories of Halloween were made at Universal Studios, screaming and laughing with my friends. It is such an honor to be included among such fantastic Haunts, and I’m so glad that fans will be able to walk the halls of Hill House this Halloween. This is – without a doubt – one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to us at Intrepid. We are so excited to visit the Red Room again – we hope to see you all there!”

Reincarnated as a Halloween Horror Nights Maze, the imposing and mysterious Hill House eerily comes to life beckoning guests to embark on the dark journey.

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. 

“It’s a nightmare come true to bring Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House”to life for our guests this year at ‘Halloween Horror Nights,’” said Charles Gray, Senior Show Director for Entertainment Creative Development at Universal Orlando Resort. “The show brought true horror to the masses, similar to what we’ve provided our guests at this event for nearly 30 years – Hill Houseis a perfect fit for “Halloween Horror Nights” as it enters a new decade of fear.”

The Haunting of Hill House maze will test even the bravest guests as they attempt to escape the entanglement of the estate’s eternal stranglehold or succumb to the powerful forces of Hill House – leaving them to wander the endless halls forever…alone.

SCAREZONES AND ROAMING HAUNTS: WITCHCRAFT BAYOU

The cult is growing, and the lure is powerful. It’s hazardous to pass through this backwater bayou, but there’s no way around. Voodoo and witchcraft aren’t real, right? Tell that to the zealous worshippers trying to shackle you with their spells. They won’t rest until your soul belongs to her too. Stay alert, or the dark magic will drag you down.
