The Road To Halloween Horror Nights 31
With the Halloween season drawing nearer, it’s time to gear up for the thirty-first year of Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights! Halloween Horror Nights is an annual special event that occurs throughout September, October, and November at Universal Studios theme parks in Florida, California, Singapore, and Japan. The parks remain operational during the day and transition to Halloween Horror Nights at night.
This event will once again be host to ten haunted houses, five scare zones, and two live shows (as well as the unique specialty food and beverage options that are sure to scare your senses). As of July 25th, only three of the ten houses have been announced with the rest of the event’s scare zones and goodies being kept under wraps. With HHN’s September opening date closing in quickly, let’s take a look at the houses that have been announced so far.
Universal Monsters: Legends Collide
Universal Studios is lovingly known by many as the birthplace of horror films; with the company’s classic monsters right at the helm of their repertoire, it’s no surprise that Universal loves giving these icons the “HHN treatment”. This year we’re getting our dose of fear and infamy through Legends Collide.
If you thought one Universal Monster was scary, how about three? Better summon your scream squad, ‘cause you’re about to get caught in the middle of an epic battle between The Wolf Man, Dracula and The Mummy, together for the first time ever. Their mission: To find the amulet that will break their curse. And they’ll destroy anyone who gets in their way.Halloween Horror Nights

Another horror icon returning to Halloween Horror Nights this year is none other than the Boogey-man himself: Michael Myers. Though the Halloween franchise has shown its face around the event previously, this year they’re taking things back to the beginning and cultivating an all-new experience based on the first and original film from 1978.
Gather your friends and visit Haddonfield, Illinois, where Michael Myers is about to don his mask and embark on his first brutal spree. Silent. Merciless. Relentless. He’s the embodiment of pure evil. You don’t want to go alone as you go back to where it all began. This year, step into the original 1978 horror classic, Halloween.Halloween Horror Nights

The Horrors Of Blumhouse
Over the past few years, Blumhouse has become synonymous with Horror Nights haunted houses. The company has had multiple properties sprinkled into the event over the last few years, with “Blumhouse of Horrors” mazes showcasing mashups from movies such as The Purge, Insidious, Sinister, and Happy Death Day. This year the walkthrough will plunge you into the worlds of The Black Phone and Freaky.
Step inside a new double-feature of Blumhouse horror. Your scream squad will find yourselves trapped between a frantic teen and the ruthless serial killer she’s swapped bodies with in Freaky. Then, you’ll try to make a desperate escape from the dark basement of The Grabber before you become his latest victim in the terrifying The Black Phone.Halloween Horror Nights
