Admit it, you know who you are.

You look forward to getting scared silly at Universal Studio Orlando’s HHN every year, probably starting as you walk out of the park after your last house the year prior.

You are among like-minded fans here. Pull up a chair, take a deep breath and relax if only for a bit.

HNN’s scares are designed to make us feel good. The exact opposite of what we are globally currently tackling, that which is sorely sapping our collective energy and souls. This, too, will pass.

Planning for Orlando’s annual HHN can be therapeutic in the sense that it makes you feel good. It’s okay to continue having d̶a̶y̶d̶r̶e̶a̶m̶s̶ nightmares about the big HHN 30th anniversary. There are proven psychological benefits of experiencing safe and anticipated fears.

Margee Kerr, a sociologist at the University of Pittsburgh studies fear. Talk about a dream job! She has discovered that once you are out of a scary situation, especially one that was never really a threat to begin with; feel-good endorphins course through your body. She describes it as: “...a reprioritizing of energy, of focus into the body. You’re grounded, not caught up in thinking...”

So, whether you plan on enjoying HHN or just riding a rollercoaster this fall, strap yourself in and enjoy the ride here. Don’t think about anything else...not your job, bills, food or whatever you are binge watching. While you are here, escape.

HERE WE GO...

Calling all fiends, it’s official! Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights has been announced. Dates are September 10th thru November 1st

Phew, that’s a lot of scares! Not sure how the scareactors do it, night after night. They do feed off your fear, bring it but, keep your hands to yourself!

A hug group :grouphug: and shout-out to all who have given their hearts & souls as scareactors in past. Good luck to all who will be trying out this year. Welcome to the newcomers. You have very big shoes to fill, we are watching you, carefully. Hope to see the return of many of the old creepy faces from past years :) Special :thumbsup2 to the chain saw wolf brigade members!

Once again, this thread is designed to be your go-to place for information as to this year's HHN.

This is a work in progress and will be updated as information rolls out

Please feel free to chat and post any sites you feel will help others plan their trips & they will be linked here

Above all else, be excellent to each other






If you are asking yourself, “What is HHN”? Soldier on...

HHN bears NO resemblance as to theme or tone versus WDW’s MNSSHP, aside from: being held during the haunting season, located in Orlando, an after-hours-extra fee event & is a ton of fun. Trick or Treat time at Universal = a scare zones & a haunted houses, not a candy grab. Although, if you are lucky Sam

just might appear & offer to share his lollipop with you. If you don’t know Jack

then you just may want to keep it than way.

HHN IS INTENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES, WITH A RECCOMENDED MINIMUM AGE OF 13!

Universal self-states the event may be too intense for young children. This is not hyperbole or self promotion by any means. It is the truth.

Additionally, no costumes or mask are permitted in the event.

Halloween Horror Nights™ is held select nights each fall.
As the sun sets on days filled with thrills in all of Universal's theme parks, the night awakens with a frightening chill at Universal Studios Florida™. It's the World’s Premier Halloween Event—bringing together the stories and visions of the most notorious creators of horror and taking them to the next level. From cinematic greats and crazed current cult favorites to the park's original abominations—every year, the legend grows and the experience reaches beyond your wildest nightmares.

HAUNTED HOUSES
Enter terrifying haunted houses inspired by the biggest names in horror, plus Universal's own twisted creations. You're never quite sure if your spine is tingling with dread or sheer excitement.

SCARE ZONES
Surrounded in shadow by screams and mad laughter, face monstrous creatures on streets transformed into nightmarish scare zones.

ATTRACTIONS
Escape to some of Universal Studios' most exhilarating attractions where heart pounding takes on a different meaning—until the horror calls you back.

SHOWS
Lose yourself in outrageous live entertainment filled with diabolically entertaining surprises.
