FIVE CHILLING SCARE ZONES
Mobs of “scareactors” lurk in the fog to prey upon guests within five scare zones throughout the theme park.

Halloween Horror Nights Orlando 2022

Horrors of Halloween (Production Central) – The Pumpkin Lord is back and more frightening than ever. His summoned ghosts, demons, witches, and more beckon guests to go against their better judgment and enter Halloween Horror Nights. Step into the haunts and delights that the 31st year has to offer. The giant, scaffolded “Halloween Horror Nights” sign from 2021 has returned to welcome guests.

Halloween Horror Nights Orlando 2022

Conjure the Dark (San Francisco) – What would Halloween Horror Nights be without witches? A stage, likely set up for sacrifices, serves as the focus of the scare zone.

In the most clear pairing of the season, this scare zone fits in fully with the Spirits of the Coven house.

When guests need a breather from the terror, they can enjoy two new scary-good shows.

Halloween Horror Nights Orlando 2022

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

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.

“Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives” picks up where the 1935 classic film “The Bride of Frankenstein” left off, thrusting guests into chaos as the Bride becomes an unstoppable scientist and begins her mission to revive Frankenstein’s Monster.

Her unwavering quest to find eternal life will come at a cost, and guests will soon find themselves entwined in a frenzied battle in their daring attempt to escape.

  • 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 Storyteller, who stops at nothing to entrap guests into her latest tales of terror, where no one lives happily ever after

Guests will be transported back to the shady township of Carey and enter familiar settings that will leave fans shrieking from nostalgia and horror.

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…

Revenge of the Tooth Fairy

Halloween Horror Nights 2021

Long ago, parents struck a bargain with vicious, goblin-esque tooth fairies to protect their children from these evil creatures who crave pearly whites – all children must give up their baby teeth or pay a gruesome price.

Guests will step into a heinous realm of blood, teeth, and gore where these fairies extract their toothed bounty by force and the only way out is to hold in their screams and keep their mouths shut.

FIVE SCARE ZONES

Crypt TV

Halloween Horror Nights 2021 Crypt TV

Universal Orlando Tests New Halloween Experiences

The Universal Orlando Resort has announced that this weekend, September 19 and 20, guests will be invited to test several seasonal experiences that are included with your daytime admission to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Halloween Horror Nights fans are out of mourning as there are two heart-pounding haunted houses at Universal Studios Florida—Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives—that will be open for guests to experience.

Scream All Day at These Haunted Houses

These haunted houses will scare the daylights out of you all weekend long, with frights brought to life through twisted artistry.

Universal Orlando Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives

Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives

“We belong dead.” The last words of Frankenstein’s monster on that fateful night when his Bride rejected him. But his end was her beginning. Now the Bride is stepping out of the shadows to bring him back. And there’s nothing she won’t do as she sharpens her brilliance by experimenting on unsuspecting victims. The mate will have her monster. And the monster his mate.

Universal Orlando Revenge of the Tooth Fairy

Revenge of the Tooth Fairy

The innocent traditions of the tooth fairy hide a darker ritual. All children must give up their baby teeth to the goblinesque tooth fairies or pay a gruesome price. Step into an old manor that has been overrun by yellow-clawed fiends who extract teeth by force. It’s an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

The Virtual Line™ experience is available for the haunted houses. When you’re on property, use The Official Universal Orlando Resort app to select a return time for your group.

WARNING: HAUNTED HOUSES MAY BE TOO INTENSE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AND ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13. NO COSTUME MASKS ALLOWED.

Halloween Fun Expands to a Second Universal Orlando Park

But first, you’ve got to find them, so keep a lookout for pumpkin stickers marking each location,
