The Scares

Scare Zones are walkthrough areas, where guests explores hauntingly transformed stretches of the park, where scare actors roam with the intention to frighten all who wander through the dense fog. Several attractions frame the night with additional thrills for those who need additional exhilaration after the jump scares.

The Houses

The intensely themed, short-form haunted houses bring close-up scares with a thorough design philosophy that can be as inspiring as they are terrifying. The houses are often Halloween Horror Nights's main draw for many guests, and provide one of the most unique scare experiences in the world. This year is set to bring 10 houses to Universal Orlando Resort, with the announced houses including:


The renowned, diabolical doll gets his own house, with the beloved horror mascot prepared to hunt down guests through his first house since 2009.

The Last of Us
