Hi guys, so the following is my tips and tricks  for having the most enjoyable time at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando. First I will give you guys a small overview of what the event is and the target groups!

What is Halloween Horror Nights?

It is an annual event that occurs at Universal Studios FloridaUniversal Studios Hollywood Universal Studios Singapore and Universal Studios Japan. Universal Studios remains operational during the day and transitions to Halloween Horror Nights at night. The event features haunted houses, “scare zones” and live entertainments; many of which utilize Universal’s characters and other licenses.

Is the event for kids?

No way, this event is in no way intended for kids. Teens may be able to handle this event but anybody who is scared easily or may not like being completely immersed in a real life horror movie..this might not be the event for you!!

Universal does a fantastic job of transforming the park into your worst nightmare that has come to life! Even before you walk into the park, you can hear the ominous soundtrack playing, almost guaranteeing that something bad is about to happen. Once you walk in through the gates and down the main street, a group of evil creatures are there to greet you personally. Do you dare head toward the smoke looming in the distance, especially with creatures waiting for you along the way?

Here are tips for Halloween Horror Nights:

1. Buy tickets in advance (Halloween Horror Nights requires a separate ticket from regular theme park admission). You will save money, and you won’t have to wait in line to buy tickets. We’re offering the Halloween Horror Nights plus 2 Day Park-to-Park ticket at a savings of $68 off of gate prices.

If you’ve spent the day at Islands of Adventure, you can take a short cut over to Universal Studios starting at 5:45 p.m. from Seuss Landing. If not, try to get to the park before 6:30. Universal Resort guests have a dedicated line from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the right side of the entrance.

2. Leave your costumes and masks at home. Universal won’t let you in with them.

3. Take only the necessities with you to make getting through security a snap: your phone, a credit card, tickets, ID and camera. You will be asked to remove everything — and we mean everything — from your pockets! Expect security to go through your bags thoroughly.

4. Eat dinner before you go. Lines for food (and alcohol) aren’t terribly long, but the lines to the houses and attractions are! Fuel up before you leave, and you can spend more time getting the daylights scared out of you.

5. If you want to avoid the street creatures, although we can’t imagine why you’d want to, they largely stick to the streets and leave guests on the sidewalks alone.

6. If you want to ride Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit or Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, do them first. Because they are close to the entrance and are the most popular attractions, they will see considerable traffic. If you don’t mind potentially riding separately from your party, the singles line on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit will go much quicker than the regular queue.

The following video may give you some idea what to expect when the gates first open at the event in early evening around 6pm or so! Enjoy and make sure to check back for more HHN tips and tricks and HHN 24 news!
