This new experience will thrust guests into a “Hell of Fame” where they’ll come face-to-face with The Caretaker, The Director, The Usher, The Storyteller, Jack the Clown, Chance and more as Halloween Horror Nights celebrates 30 years of fear.

In case you need a refresher, or this will be your first time encountering these patron saints of horror, here’s a bit of backstory for the icons:

  • The Caretaker – A once well-respected surgeon who has become eerily infatuated with the removal of internal organs — especially while his patients are conscious.
  • The Director – An aspiring filmmaker obsessed with capturing the suffering and torture of his victims on film — placing them in their very own living horror movie.
  • The Usher, who seeks to invoke violent vengeance on those who don’t follow the rules of his theater.
  • The Storyteller, who stops at nothing to entrap guests into her latest tales of terror, where no one lives happily ever after.
  • Jack the Clown — the original Halloween Horror Nights icon and the most feared of them all — and his assistant Chance, a deadly pair who thrive on tormenting victims in ways that embody their sick sense of humor.

Upon entering this haunted house, guests will quickly realize that they’re being hunted as they try to escape the grasp of each character within their own domain. From The Storyteller’s infamous bed of razor-sharp nails to the cadaver-filled mortuary run by The Caretaker, horrors will await guests at every turn — giving them no choice but to face these legends of Halloween Horror Nights history.

Universal Orlando’s annual haunt event returns on Friday, Sept. 3 and runs on select nights through Sunday, Oct. 31. This year will see 10 haunted houses, five scare zones, and live entertainment sure to bring thrills and chills.

All tickets and vacation packages for this year’s event are now on sale, including a variety of Fear Passes for guests looking to visit on multiple nights starting at $129.99.
