Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort

I am not one for scary movies or anything remotely scary for that matter. This is why EVERYONE was surprised to see photos popping up of me at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights last year.

Truth is, our friends had extra passes and I was feeling a little adventurous so… We ventured out on the second weekend of the festivities. Let me say, that this event is done to the max as far as costuming and staging of the haunted houses (9 houses to visit in total). I was frightened out of my mind, but enjoyed the challenge of making it through the houses without using the escape routes.

This is definitely not an event for kids so get a sitter (or hotel Kids Club if you are visiting Orlando) and make it an adults only night out.

We are planning to go again this year second week in October, but I just had to share some of the highlights from last year’s event.

We had two shows that were favorites: Bill and Teds Excellent Halloween, a hilarious play on pop culture and Jack’s The Carnage Returns, which is horrifyingly intriguing. Get your ear muffs ready if you are offended by foul language.

We did the Scareactor Dining Experience, which allowed you to stick around in the park and be the first to hop in line at the houses (where lines can get long!) We also were able to get great pics with some of the scareactors.
