2019 Halloween Horror Nights is kicking off tonight at Universal Orlando Resort!

This year guests can experience 10 haunted houses, five scare zones, live entertainment–including the amazing new night-time lagoon show called Halloween Marathon of Mayhem!

My husband and son just love Halloween Horror Nights! It’s their absolute favorite! Being the big time fans that we are this year is going to be epic with Ghostbusters and Stranger Things!

Let’s look at Stranger Things this year!

We have the Hawkins Middle School area when Eleven came back through the wall!

I love this so much! They really did a great job with it!

But that isn’t all! Just look at what all you can do at Halloween Horror Nights!

  • Encounter the terrifying Upside Down where they will walk through iconic scenes like the Starcourt Mall and Hopper’s cabin and face ferocious Demodogs, from seasons 2 and 3 of Netflix’s “Stranger Things
  • Be transported to the streets of New York as the rift between worlds opens – releasing ghoulish spirits, hideous specters and ectoplasm-dripping phantasms in every shape and size in “Ghostbusters
  • Come face-to-face with the legendary monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, Wolf Man and more in “Universal Monsters,” inspired by Universal Pictures’ classic horror flicks
  • Journey into the unnerving world of Jordan Peele’s and Universal Pictures’ “Us” where The Tethered emerge from their tunnels to seek revenge on their privileged doubles
  • Enter the sleepy small town of Crescent Cove that has been taken over by a pack of murderous clown-like creatures in MGM’s “Killer Klowns From Outer Space
  • Take a relentless tour of Rob Zombie’s “House of 1000 Corpses,”and venture through the chaotic home of the Firefly family, a sadistic clan of psychotic killers
  • Scream their way through four spine-chilling original haunted houses created by the twisted minds of Universal Orlando’s Entertainment team, including “Graveyard Games,” “Yeti: Terror of the Yukon,” “Depths of Fear” and “Nightingales: Blood Pit

Check out Yeti: Terror of the Yukon 

I think this will give Disney’s Expedition Everest a run for it’s money.

You can never go wrong with classics. How about Universal Monsters and Killer Clowns From Outer Space

Then there are the Five Scare-zones with scareactors!

 Zombieland: Double Tap,” based-on Sony Pictures’ 2009 cult classic hit and upcoming sequel out on October 18 in U.S. theaters, and “Rob Zombie Hellbilly Deluxe,” inspired by the popular music of horror icon Rob Zombie. Guests will also find themselves in three original nightmares – “Anarch-cade,” “Vikings Undead” and “Vanity Ball.”


Make sure you check out the two shows!

And when they need a break from the screams, guests can enjoy two thrilling shows. Academy of Villainsreturns for its fourth year in a row with an all-new show, “Academy of Villains: Altered States,” featuring a killer mix of dance and theatrics. And, for the first time ever, guests can watch as terrifying moments inspired by some of the Halloween classics taking over the event come to life right before their eyes in the Universal Studios Florida lagoon during “Halloween Marathon of Mayhem.


With all of these amazing offerings I highly recommend that you attend multiple nights or purchase the Express Pass. It’s worth the extra money just to make sure you get to do all you wanted to do. Make sure you keep that in mind!

I think the Stranger Things and Ghostbusters will be some of the busiest houses so make sure you get to those for sure! (I’m not biased or anything, honest.)

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort start tonight and will run on select nights through November 2, 2019.  If you would like to buy tickets you can do so HERE. You can purchase the Express Pass HERE.

What do you think? Which looks the best to you?
