Here is the description of Halloween Horror Nights 2009 from halloweenhorrornights.com:
Once again, your worst nightmares will soon be taking shape in the shadowy darkness of one of the country’s premier annual Halloween events—Universal Orlando® Resort’s Halloween Horror Nights®.
On select nights in September and October, Universal Studios Florida® theme park is transformed into a nightmarish labyrinth of haunted houses, outrageous live shows, and electrifying scare zones while an army of mutants, monsters and maniacs roam the darkened studio streets.
Now in its 19th year, Halloween Horror Nights annually drawing hundreds of thousands of horror fans from around the globe to this one-of-a-kind event. In fact, Tony Timpone, Editor of Fangoria Magazine, said, “After visiting scream parks all across the U.S. for the last 20 years, I can easily say that Universal’s is the best in the business… Halloween Horror Nights is the ultimate Halloween experience.”
This year promises to break new ground by being the most immersive horror experience ever. Every step, every turn takes you into a new realm of fear. In the houses or on the streets, there is nowhere safe and nowhere you can hide. It’s the greatest exhibition of pure terror ever unleashed anywhere, and you can experience it all, LIVE, only at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.
For traveling guests, the “Gory Getaway Vacation Package” (beginning at $223 per adult) includes two-night hotel accommodations at an Orlando area hotel, one 1-Day/2-Park admission and Halloween Horror Nights Combo ticket, one 5×7 souvenir photograph and free access to live entertainment at Universal CityWalk.
Advance tickets for Halloween Horror Nights are now on sale for $69.99 plus tax, though we don’t recommend ever paying full price for Halloween Horror Nights tickets, as there are always numerous discounts to be found, especially for Florida residents.
Also on sale is the Frequent Fear pass, which grants access to Halloween Horror Nights for 13 nights of the event. It is available for $69.99 and is valid on September 25, 26, October 1, 4, 8, 11, 15, 18, 21, 22, 25, 28 and 29.
Guests can purchase Halloween Horror Nights 19 tickets at HalloweenHorrorNights.com or by calling 1-888-467-7677 (HORROR-7). Because of the event’s popularity, tickets for weekend nights, especially those closer to October 31, often sell out quickly.
We’ll keep you updated on all the latest information surrounding this year’s premiere scare-filled event.
