Universal Orlando Halloween Horror Nights Returns for 2022

Are you ready to test your might at Halloween Horror Nights?

Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) is returning to Universal Studios Florida for its 31st year. The separately ticketed event will run on select nights from September 2-October 31, 2022. So get ready to enter the fog.

Haunted Houses

You’ll want to run but you must walk through the main attractions of Halloween Horror Nights: its frightening haunted houses. This year’s 10 houses, featuring both horror icons and brand-new characters, test your willpower and heart.

At the time of writing, Universal announced two house theme for 2022, Universal Monsters: Legends Collide. Get ready for a terrifying battle between the Wolf Man, the Mummy, and Dracula. Returning this year is Michael Myers in the Halloween house doing what he does best. Lurking silently in the dark and then walking so terrifying slow right behind you.

Scare Zones and Shows

You think you’re safe because you’re not in a house? Wrong.

Between haunted houses, Halloween Horror Nights packs the park with five scare zones. In the past, we’ve seen scare zones featuring Rob Zombie and Zombieland, and original themes like Gorewood Forest. There’s nowhere to hide in these open scare zones where sometimes it’s hard to tell scare member from guest. Stay alert!

Halloween Horror Nights Scare

At least there’s some safety in the live shows.

Finally, you get to enjoy the show from a safe distance. Previous live shows have included the Marathon of Mayhem water show and Halloween Nightmare Fuel.

Food So Good, It’s Scary

Make sure you head to the park on an empty stomach because HHN’s food is to die for!

Universal typically serves menu items that go with the year’s haunted houses. For example, the 2021 event paired the Texas Chainsaw Massacre house with Texas barbecue. We expect that fan favorites such as pizza fries and twisted taters will also make a comeback.

Be sure to stock up on spooky sweets, like gummy beating hearts, at Universal’s Tribute Store.

Rides and Attractions

If you’re hoping to go on some rides during your night in the park, you’re in luck.

Select Universal attractions will remain open during the event. These include favorites such as Rip Ride Rockit, Revenge of the Mummy, and MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack. These rides will bring extra thrills to Halloween Horror Nights.
