We are just a few weeks away from the start of the spooky season at the Universal Orlando Resort. There are so many exciting things to look forward to this year. Here, we share your complete guide to Halloween Horror Nights 2022.

Haunted Houses

There are 10 haunted houses at this year’s event. Each haunted house offers a terrifying theme with scareactors and plenty of screams waiting!

The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare

His music is a hit but can you survive his mind? Get ready to be stalked through the nightmarish experience inspired by his music. You may encounter a mannequin masquerade, bandaged maniacs doing plastic surgery, and a rave where a slasher is ready to carve a smile on your face!


There is nothing like the terror that you will experience as you face the legend of Halloween himself, Michael Myers. If you’re ready, you can see the horror from the very beginning but beware. His beginning may be your end!

The Horrors of Blumhouse

It’s a double feature of Blumhouse horror as you first face a ruthless serial killer in Freaky. Then, try to escape an evil kidnapper in the terrifying The Black Phone.

Universal Monsters: Legends Collide

At this haunted house, witness the epic battle between THREE different Universal Monsters! The Wolf Man, Dracula, and The Mummy are together for the first time ever, searching for the amulet that will break their curse

Spirits of the Coven

Beautiful flapper witches will put a spell on you as they lure you into their 1920s speakeasy. That’s where the magic ends and the horror begins as they reveal their true form and attempt to turn you into their witch’s brew!

Bugs: Eaten Alive

Tour a 1950’s home of the future but beware of the bugs! They are waiting to surround you with their slime and multiple legs! You are sure to be filled with terror as you drop like a fly!

Fiesta de Chupacabras

There’s a colorful fiesta in this Latin American village, celebrating the legend of the Chupacabras. However, you need to listen to the legend and beware! The streets are lined with the blood of tourists who did not heed the warnings!

Hellblock Horror

At this prison, the inmates are not only criminals but monstrous creatures! If they break free, everyone is sentenced to death.

Dead Man’s Pier: Winter’s Wake

Undead fishermen emerge from the waters in this New England fishing village. Beware, they are out for revenge and ready to drag you down to the depths of the sea!

Descendants of Destruction

Don’t go alone on this adventure through the abandoned subway system of New York City! Hungry mutants are lurking and ready to feast on you, the last of humanity!

Scare Zones

Throughout the park, the scareactors take to the streets in five unique scare zones that are sure to have you screaming with fright!

Horrors of Halloween

The spirit of Halloween, the Pumpkin Lord, has taken over this year! He is summoning all kinds of evil creatures. Get ready to scream because fear has been planted!

Scarecrow: Cursed Soil

There is an abandoned farm where scarecrows have risen from the Earth. They are hunting you down, looking for revenge, and they are ready to harvest your screams!

Sweet Revenge

Mayhem breaks out when children turn into crazed killers! They have eaten the sweets from Major Sweets’ candy company but it’s far from a sweet experience!

Graveyard: Deadly Unrest

It’s All Hallow’s Eve and a wicked storm is brewing over the cemetery. Spirits that have long been dead are awakening and no one in their path will escape!

It’s the first All Hallow’s Eve and an evil sorceress is up to no good! She is calling on horrors to come from dark dimensions and they are all craving your blood!
