What are Halloween Horror Nights?

Halloween Horror Nights are specially ticketed events that take place on September 26-27, October 2-5, 9-12, 16-19, 22-26, 29-31 and November 1, 2008 at the Universal Studios Florida.

This is a separate, hard-ticket event and is not included in your park admission ticket or pass. NO costumes, make-up or masks will be allowed in the park. Guests are required to pass through metal detectors to enter the park. Halloween Horror Nights and the descriptions on this page may be too intense for children and some adults. For this reason, Universal does not offer a child's ticket option. Adult discretion is strongly advised. 

This year, Halloween Horror Nights 18 transforms into the most extreme, fear-filled event in its history with "Reflections of Fear".  Come face to face with your deepest fears as Bloody Mary brings history’s most terrifying urban legends to life at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights. Trapped inside or on the streets, there’s nowhere you’re safe. It’s the most immersive horror experience ever, with more Scare Zones than ever before, more Scareactors, and the most Haunted Houses ever.


Every year, Universal Orlando’s Entertainment team creates the most unimaginably frightening haunted house experiences.  The following house descriptions are a peek into the world of Bloody Mary, where guests will learn that fear is more than a four-letter word; it’s a state of mind.

Scary Tales: Once Upon A Nightmare
Find yourself “Once Upon a Nightmare” as you wind your way across a landscape filled with cherished fairy tales as they have never been told before.  The Evil Queen’s scribes have written new chapters on terror where princesses don’t get saved, children don’t find their way out of the wood and there is no escape from the rabbit hole. 

The Hallow
Where do the traditions we observe each Halloween come from?  It is said that every Halloween within the blackest parts of the forest, Samhain, The Lord of the Underworld, lives again and the souls of the damned beckon you.  For if you journey deep enough, you will see that Samhain’s traditions are trapped within The Hallow.

Dead Exposure
Charlie McPherson, a noted tabloid photographer, has always wanted something more in life than photographing celebrities at their worst.  One night, Charlie gets his wish when the city he resides in becomes overrun with flesh-eating Zombies.  Trapped in his downtown loft with bloodthirsty Zombies just outside, Charlie captures the last horror-filled moments of his life on film and you are with him every step of the way.

Creatures straight from the cover of AtomiComics’ “Strange Tales” burst forth to rampage and massacre the backwoods locals.  Join Johnny, Cleet, Jim Deedle and the rest of the gang at the Butchered Buck as they fight off this terrifying invasion of creatures from who knows where. 

Streets of Blood – Body Collectors
An ancient group known simply as “The Body Collectors” has been devoted to the collection and sacrificing of bodies for millennia. They have escaped notoriety by using plagues, wars, serial killings and mass disappearances as the cover for their collecting. These Collectors are now in Victorian London, covering their heinous acts with Jack “The Ripper” as their scapegoat. However, there is no “Ripper”…There are only Collectors, collecting, collecting, collecting…

Reflections of Fear
Noted Psychiatrist Dr. Mary Agana believed that if a subject was constantly forced to experience what they feared the most, then over time they would become numb to the idea of actually fearing it. Unfortunately for us, Dr. Mary’s fear is that of death and the only way for her to cure herself is to watch the light leave your eyes as your soul leaves your body.

Interstellar Terror
Prided among the scientific community as the greatest achievement in the history of mankind, the NSO COLUMBUS 1492 is the first manned spacecraft to leave the relative safety of our solar system.  When the ship disappears for several years, and then reappears just outside the orbit of our moon, your rescue team is sent to investigate.  They find that an artifact the crew brought on board causes destruction and forces you to witness Interstellar Terror.

Post-apocalyptic Scotland breeds madness as the Reaper virus ravages the populace, leaving those left behind after the plague to survive by any means necessary.  Do you have what it takes to make it out alive?  – Based on the blockbuster Universal Pictures release.


This year, Halloween Horror Nights has been redefined and will be an experience unlike any other.  The detailed themeing and original characters created for Halloween Horror Nights 18 will deliver the most elaborate and immersive entertainment experience in the history of the event.   

Halloween Horror Nights 18 features shows that have been guest favorites over the years.  From the musical numbers of Rocky Horror Picture Show, to the unbelievable tricks of Brian Brushwood and of course, the infamous Bill & Ted adventures, this year’s shows will both thrill and appall guests.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure
Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted Theodore Logan return with an all-new, especially excellent Halloween adventure featuring a who’s who of notorious celebrity guest stars.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute
Mad scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Rocky Horror and other famous Rocky Horror Picture Show characters return, bringing the musical mayhem of the classic horror spoof to life on-screen and on-stage with live performers singing and dancing in outrageous costumes.  The tribute will be interactive with audience participation and on-stage guest involvement.    

Brian Brushwood
Based on his popularity as a part of last year’s Freak Show, Brian Brushwood returns, but this time, with his own show.  Full of the most intense, riveting and disturbing feats you’ve ever seen performed live, this year, Brian will take his performance to a whole new level, presenting some of his signature acts in his own show. 

Street Scare Zones and More

Haunted houses are only a fraction of what you will experience at Halloween Horror Nights 18.  Universal Studios have approached street scares and scarezones in an entirely different way and the descriptions below illustrate the scope of this year’s event.

Dark Reflections
Begin your descent into a world of opposites, distortions and terror beyond reasoning.  Decide your path, but try not to lose your way.  Because once you step into the mirror willingly, there will be no one to help you and no one will hear you beg for mercy.

Asylum in Wonderland
Stepping through the Looking Glass, you find yourself in the depths of Wonderland, journeying through the nightmare that Alice couldn’t escape.  The wonderful figures you once believed to inhabit this fantastical place have been peering into the Looking Glass themselves and have come face to face with Bloody Mary.

The Skoolhouse
Mr. Renshaw’s class has always been good.  Mr. Renshaw’s class has never broken the rules.  Mr. Renshaw’s class has always been perfect little angels.  All of that changes when the kids from the Skoolhouse “cut” class.  The children of the quaint town of Carey, Ohio are out to teach everyone that their version of Trick or Treat may be the difference between your life and death. 

The Path of the Wicked
What if the Wicked Witch had won?  Because every story has more than a few sides, view OZ as it has never been seen before.  In this reflection, The Wicked Witch of the West has done away with Dorothy and seized control of the merry old land of OZ for herself.

Fractured Tales
Enter your favorite fairy tales and find out what happens when Grimm goes wrong.  Witness these stories through the lens of their reality.  Look closely and you will find the terrible truths that lie just below the sweet appearance of these classic tales.  You will learn a thing or two about yourself, but by then it may be too late. 

Jack O’Lanterns
Over 400 Jack O’Lanterns light the way from one horror to the next. 

American Gothic
Some legends allow a simple man or woman to remain immortal.  Some deeds, so dark, take a simple person and transform them into lore.  America’s past has been filled with these dark deeds, sorted characters and unbelievable acts of horror.  Reflect upon your own mortality as you venture through history with the infamous Lizzie Borden as your guide.

Streets of Blood – Body Collectors
An ancient group known simply as “The Body Collectors” has been devoted to the collection and sacrificing of bodies for millennia.  They have escaped notoriety by using plagues, wars, serial killings and mass disappearances as the cover for their collecting.  These mysterious “Quiet Gentlemen” are now in Victorian London, covering their heinous acts with Jack “The Ripper” as their scapegoat. But, there is no “Ripper”…There are only Collectors, collecting, collecting, collecting…

These brothers always stick together.  In good times and bad, the Grimm Brothers, lead by the oldest, Aesop, have always seemed to find a way to smile.  Usually it involves disemboweling an unsuspecting victim with a chainsaw, but hey, we all have our quirks…

Bloodthirsty Zombies lurk through the streets, hungry for their next victims.

How much are tickets to Halloween Horror Nights?

What about Universal Express?

Halloween Horror Nights Express Pass allows you to bypass the regular lines at all haunted houses, plus participating rides and attractions. Each Express Pass allows one entry to each participating Express attraction, per guest. Halloween Horror Nights Express passes are limited. Advance purchase is recommended, because passes may sell out before individual nights of the event. Prices per guest will range between $36 and $66 plus tax. Wait times at many of the haunted houses can be long so it may be worth the investment. Halloween Horror Nights Express Pass is only good during the event date it is purchased for.

Note: The Royal Pacific Resort, Hard Rock Hotel and Portofino Bay Resort keys will only be accept during regular park hours and not during Halloween Horror Nights.

Can I upgrade my daytime ticket to include entry to Halloween Horror Night?
