EVENT TICKETS

First, you’re going to need to get into the event. There are different ticket options available for purchase. If your heart can only take one night of screams, go for the single-night ticket. By purchasing your ticket online, you can save up to $52 on select nights.

However, for the truly brave, we also have the multi-night ticket. These petrifying passes cost less than a single night, purchased at the gate, when you buy online! Choose from these four options:

  • Rush of Fear Pass: Get the first 10 event nights for less than the price of a single night at the gate when you buy online.
  • Frequent Fear Pass: Get up to 21 nights for less than the price of a single night at the gate when you buy online—including EVERY Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday event night, PLUS the first weekend and last Friday.
  • Frequent Fear Plus Pass: Get up to 28 nights, including all Sunday through Friday event nights, plus the first and last Saturday nights.
  • Ultimate Frequent Fear Pass: Valid EVERY night for maximum fear. (Are you sure you can handle this!?)

You can also upgrade your experience by purchasing a Halloween Horror Nights Express Pass. This will allow you to skip the regular lines once per haunted house, plus participating rides and attractions. With 10 haunted houses (more than ever before), five terrifying scare zones, and one powerhouse show, this is the best way to make sure you’re getting your desired fill of fright.

Behind-The-Screams: Unmasking the Horror Tour

Want to find out how Universal Orlando’s Art & Design Team transforms the biggest names in horror into haunted houses? Go on the Behind-The-Screams: Unmasking the Horror Tour.

Before the sun sets and our scareactors come out to play, enjoy a guided day-time walking tour of either three or six haunted houses with the lights on. You’ll also receive a commemorative R.I.P. Tour lanyard and get the chance to photograph select rooms in select haunted houses. This is an opportunity you won’t find anywhere else! Theme park admission is not required or included.

FEARSOME FEASTS

The monsters aren’t going to be the only thing growling throughout the night. Make sure to think about your stomach and book a spot for our Scareactor Dining Experience at Universal Studios’ Classic Monsters Cafe.

You get to chow down on an all-you-care-to-eat themed dinner buffet and get pics (if you’re brave enough) with scareactors. Take home the nightmare of your frightful feast with a digital download of one photo taken during your dining experience. If your friends and family aren’t brave enough to dine with the scary monsters like you are, grab dinner in Universal CityWalk before the event starts.

Also, be sure to keep an eye out in the park during the event for new food and beverage options exclusive to Halloween Horror Nights. From tantalizing to terrifying, you won’t believe these treats aren’t a trick.
