Frightful Fun at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights
Fall is prime spooky time—and Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights will give groups plenty to scream about. Learn more about what houses and haunts await groups during the witching hour this Halloween season.
Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights features a double dose of terror inspired by the company regarded as the driving force in horror with “The Horrors of Blumhouse” haunted houses which bring to life Blumhouse’s upcoming supernatural thriller The Black Phone and horror-comedy Freaky. The frightening event begins at Universal Orlando Resort on September 2 and at Universal Studios Hollywood on September 8.
“The Horrors of Blumhouse” will transport groups into an alternate dimension where the scares are real and the stakes are life or death. In The Black Phone, which hit theatres June 24, “The Grabber” is a demented magician best known for his sinister trick of making people disappear—permanently. Groups will find themselves trapped in his “fun” house where the sound of ghostly voices whisper hints on how to escape, but they must tread carefully to outwit and outrun “The Grabber’s” twisted magic.
Freaky will challenge groups to outrun serial killer “The Butcher” who has switched bodies with a high school girl after being cursed by The La Dola Dagger, an ancient Aztec blade. Groups will learn firsthand that looks can be deceiving as they encounter the sweet-looking teen who is actually “The Butcher”—and she is determined to hunt for their next victims.
The countdown to the opening of Halloween Horror Nights on Thursday, September 8, begins as all tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood’s terrifying event are now on sale.
