Halloween Horror Nights

Halloween Horror Nights are spooky and frighteningly busy. If you plan to visit Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando this year, make sure you are prepared for what awaits beyond the entrance gates. These tips will help you make the most of your visit so you can spend less time in line and more time exploring the terrifying haunted houses at this year’s best Halloween event in Orlando.

Arrive Early

Like any event at the theme parks, the key to getting the most out of your visit is to arrive early. On most nights Halloween Horror Nights will begin at 6:30 p.m. but Universal Orlando may allow guests in up to a half-hour in advance. The closer you can be to the front of the line, the more time you’ll have to explore all of the attractions.

Visit on the Least Busy Days

Halloween Horror Night’s extreme popularity draws in tourists from around the world and Orlando locals. Because of this, Friday and Saturday are always the busiest nights. For your best shot at avoiding large crowds, we recommend visiting during the week. Not only will you avoid some of the chaos, but you’ll also enjoy a slightly discounted ticket price.

Choose Four or Five Must-Do Houses to Visit

Since it’s difficult to visit all the haunted houses in one night without the help of our next tip, choose your top must-see houses and visit those first. If you have any time remaining at the end of the night, then you can visit the others. If you aren’t sure which to visit first, visit the houses at the back of the park first as those will have shorter lines.

Purchase a Halloween Horror Nights Express Pass

If you must see all the houses, purchase a Halloween Horror Nights Express Pass. This special pass lets you skip all the regular lines at the haunted houses plus at participating rides and attractions. As with your admission ticket, this add-on purchase is less expensive on non-peak nights.

Stay Hydrated

With all the screaming and running around from house to house (and away from monsters), Halloween Horror Nights gets intense. Make sure you stay hydrated by either purchasing water at the park or bringing a reusable water bottle you can refill as needed.

Dress in Layers

Fall weather in Orlando is usually warm but you’ll want to be sure you check the forecast before going out. The weather can range from hot and humid, to slightly cool once the sun goes down. If you tend to get cold easily, bring a light jacket.

Pack Lightly

If you can get away without bringing a bag to the theme parks, do so; you’ll breeze though security lines and enjoy the freedom of exploring the attractions without worrying about keeping up with your bag. If you do need to bring a bag, we recommend choosing a small one and only packing the essentials, such as your phone, wallet, I.D., tickets, water, a rain poncho, and bug spray to protect against the scariest monsters of all: Florida’s mosquitoes.

No Kids

Finally, a word of caution: don’t bring the kids. Halloween Horror Nights is known worldwide for being a premier Halloween destination. As such, it is not a family-friendly event. Universal Orlando Resort itself states that the event may be too intense for children, especially those under age 13. If you’ll be traveling with kids, please plan accordingly.

Bonus: Stay near Halloween Horror Nights

After an evening spent running from monsters and goblins, the last thing you want is to battle traffic on your way back to your hotel. Staying at a hotel near Halloween Horror Nights, such as Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando, will minimize the time you’ll spend getting back to your comfy guestroom. Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando, located 3 miles away, offers amenities such as dining outlets and a mini-mart where you can pick up last minute essentials for your Universal Orlando adventure.

Jurassic World VelociCoaster at Universal Orlando Resort’s Islands of Adventure theme park unleashes Florida’s fastest, tallest, and most intense launch coaster ever created, catapulting riders 155 feet into the air at extreme speeds up to 70 mph while racing alongside a ferocious Velociraptor pack, inspired by the blockbuster “Jurassic World” films.

Theme parks provide an intangible thrill. For some of us, it’s a thrill and memory we’ll never forget. From childhood when we took our first steps to meet Mickey Mouse for the first time, to squeezing our parent’s hand all the way up to the top of the highest roller coaster drop; our experiences at theme parks are some of our strongest memories.

It’s no secret that Orlando is one of the world’s top theme park destinations, so go prepared to make the most of the experience. Bringing our own children for the first time to one of our beloved attractions or experiencing a theme park for the first time ourselves is quiet a whirlwind. We’ve listed a few travel tips to make your excursions to the theme parks the best possible.

Purchase tickets before you go. This should ensure you’re getting the best price possible.

Ask our Guest Relations about complimentary transportation options, shuttle schedules, and their favorite theme park features. (Hint: We offer complimentary, scheduled shuttles to Universal Orlando® Resort, SeaWorld®, and Wet ‘N Wild®.)

Designate a meeting spot for all large groups and family members. Kids may want to get lost in theme parks, but parents don’t want to spend their time looking for their kids.

Head to the parks early. Arrive early and avoid the mid-day crowds. While everyone is basking in the heat of the day, take an extended lunch outside of the parks or head to your hotel for an afternoon nap.

Once you’re re-energized and ready to take on the rest of the theme park, go back in the evening for some of the most specular night time shows and firework displays.

The most important tip of all, have fun and make some of the best memories!
