Horror icons The Wolf Man, Dracula, and The Mummy will combine in the all-new Universal Monsters: Legends Collide haunted house—the first named house for the 2022 event, which starts in September.

And there will be a special collaboration with rock legend Slash to add to the occasion.

It promises to be a unique mash-up for the gruesome threesome, giving both Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood a gripping headline offering to tempt guests back to their eagerly-anticipated scream-fest.

The house aims to expand on the all-time legacy of Universal Pictures’ epic horror figures, inspired by the event’s previous Universal Monsters attractions to create a gigantic triple threat for one harrowing experience.

In it, guests will be transported back to a lurid 19th century setting as the three monstrous incarnations each seek The Amulet of Ra.

The Wolf Man believes this ancient relic contains the power to finally lift his dreaded curse, while Dracula and The Mummy have nefarious plans to use it to bring humankind to its knees.

With a full moon rising and a race against time, guests will find themselves entangled in a bloodthirsty battle between the terrifying titans—and only one will survive.  

Elevating the mayhem, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Slash returns to collaborate with Universal Studios Hollywood by providing an original composition for their haunted house.  

The Halloween Horror Nights program’s epic 43 nights kicks off on Friday, September 2, 2022, in Orlando with 10 terrifying haunted houses, and Thursday, September 8, 2022, in Hollywood with eight houses. Both events will run select nights through Monday, October 31, and additional details will be revealed soon.

Tickets start at $73.99 per person, plus tax, and can be purchased on UniversalOrlando.com. Pricing varies by date.

Express Passes allow guests to skip the regular lines one time at each house, and at participating rides and attractions. Prices vary by date, starting at $89.99, and separate event admission is required.

Three Add-ons are also available (separate event admission required for all add-ons), including:

R.I.P Tour – Take a guided V.I.P. walking tour that gives participants priority entry to haunted houses (once per house), plus select attractions, from $249.99/person, plus tax.

Private R.I.P. Tour – This guided V.I.P. walking tour adds priority unlimited entry. To book call 866-346-9350.

Behind The Screams: Unmasking the Horror Tour – A somewhat less intense daytime, lights-on V.I.P. takes participants through three or six haunted houses, from $79.99, plus tax.

Universal Hollywood will feature eight haunted houses, the signature Terror Tram, scare zones, and a live show spread over 33 nights.

Halloween Horror Nights is an intense experience and is not recommended for children under 13.
