Halloween Horror Nights 2018

The World’s Premier Halloween Event is back, and scarier than ever, select nights September 14 through November 3, 2018!

New nightmares rule the darkness at Universal Studios Florida. Haunted houses drawn from the greatest horrors chill the bravest souls. Streets transform into sinister scare zones. Mad laughter echoes from outrageous live shows. And across the park, some of Universal’s most exhilarating attractions tempt with thrilling escapes.

This year’s haunted houses include Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Poltergeist, Seeds of Extinction, Carnival Graveyard: Rust in Pieces, Slaughter Sinema, Trick ‘r Treat and Dead Exposure: Patient Zero. And just announced: everything is upside down, as Halloween Horror Nights travels deep inside the haunting world of STRANGER THINGS. The Demogorgon is hunting in your world now.

This year’s scare zones include Revenge of Chucky, Killer Klowns From Outer Space, The Harvest, Twisted Tradition, and Vamp 85: New Year’s Eve (it’s December 31, 1984).
