The annual fright-fest, which is scheduled for select nights in the Universal Studios park from September  2 – October 31, 2022, now encompasses the gamut of the grisly and grotesque, from vengeance-seeking pumpkins and lurking fanged creatures to bloodthirsty mutants and seaside zombies.

Halloween Horror Nights big reveal includes the final six of the 10 haunted houses:

Spirits of the Coven

Enter an unsettling 1920s speakeasy, where visitors suddenly discover to their horror that THEY are set to be the secret ingredient in a terrifying witches brew.

Each of the scare zones will then feature in a collection of detailed environments in the Tribute Store, culminating in the elaborate Halloween festival setting of the Sweet Revenge zone, that infests the streets outside the store.

Halloween Horror Nights live entertainment

There will be two new shows to provide a live entertainment break from all the horrors:

“Halloween Nightmare Fuel Wildfire” will be the sequel to 2021’s hugely popular “Halloween Nightmare Fuel” show that featured international performance group The Fuel Girls, highlighting a new Dreamer in the depths of another nightmare, all set to pulse-pounding metal, rock, and electronic soundtracks.

The Universal Studios Lagoon will be the setting for “Ghoulish! A Halloween Tale,” an all-new presentation that follows the Grim Reaper’s patrols beyond the grave, with another specially-mixed musical score.

Florida’s premier Halloween event celebrates its 31st year, starting this September, and it will also feature a limited-time experience at Universal’s eight hotels, where guests will enjoy exclusive access to a dedicated entry gate for the event and HHN experiences at some of the hotels, notably the immersive photo opportunities of the Universal Monsters Gallery of Legends at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort.
