Yesterday, Universal Orlando Resort announced some initial details for Halloween Horror Nights 30th year! Among the key highlights of the press release:
- 10 brand-new haunted houses
- five scare zones
- 39 select nights, from September 10 – October 31, 2020
- new and reimagined haunts inspired by the past (perhaps anniversary houses from famous IPs and original properties?)
While it was rumored we’d see a hint of what’s to come at HHN29, that didn’t seem to pan out. What can we expect from HHN30? Time will tell!
Here’s the full press release:
UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT TO CELEBRATE 30 YEARS OF FEAR WITH HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS 2020
The World’s Premier Halloween Event Returns for
Select Nights September 10 – October 31, 2020
On the heels of this year’s wildly-popular event, Universal Orlando Resort has revealed the dates for Halloween Horror Nights 2020 – the 30th anniversary of the world’s premier Halloween event. All-new scares, plus reimagined haunts inspired by the past, will invade Universal Studios Florida for 39 select nights from Thursday, September 10 – Saturday, October 31, 2020.
Guests visiting Universal Orlando’s world-class vacation destination select nights in September and October will be able to experience all of the horrors that await – including 10 brand-new haunted houses, five bone-chilling scare zones, live entertainment and more.
What began as a three-day event in Orlando in 1991 has become the world’s premier Halloween event – Halloween Horror Nights. Each fall, as the sun sets on days filled with thrills and the night awakens with a frightening chill, the most terrifying names in horror and pop culture take over Universal Studios Florida – forcing guests to come face-to-face with what scares them most. Elaborately-themed haunted houses based on everything from cinematic greats and cult favorites to original abominations created by the twisted minds behind the event come to life – each filled with so much detail, they rival movie sets. Hordes of menacing scareactors prey upon guests in various scare zones throughout the streets of the park. And when guests need a break from the screams, they can enjoy live shows and Universal Studios’ most exhilarating rides and attractions.
Halloween Horror Nights has grown into a global phenomenon and can also be experienced at Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Studios Japan and Universal Studios Singapore each fall. Details and dates for those events will be revealed in the months ahead.
More information about Halloween Horror Nights 2020 at Universal Orlando – including experiences, tickets and offers – will be revealed next year. Stay tuned to orlando.halloweenhorrornights.com for updates.
