The anticipation for Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights builds as we head into the fall haunt season. As restrictions have continued to lift popular events have FINALLY started to release information and tickets for their annual Halloween events. Horror Nights is a BIG one and has kicked things off with quite the slate of announcements. While Horror Nights Orlando recently announced the return of its Beetlejuice maze, which popped up for Halloween weekend last year, and its icon Jack the Clown, the first major announcement for both coasts opens the doors to a Netflix titan.
Fans of The Haunting of Hill House and Horror Nights can expect to encounter morbidly memorable and terrifying scenes from the Netflix series. Throughout the maze, you’ll explore the house’s iconic settings like the omni-powerful Red Room and the infamous Hall of Statues. You’ll also encounter apparitions from The Tall Man to The Ghost in the Basement and of course: The Bent-Neck Lady.
“I have loved Halloween Horror Nights for so long,” said Mike Flanagan, Creator, Director and Executive Producer of The Haunting of Hill House. “Some of my favorite memories of Halloween were made at Universal Studios, screaming and laughing with my friends. It is such an honor to be included among such fantastic Haunts, and I’m so glad that fans will be able to walk the halls of Hill House this Halloween. This is – without a doubt – one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to us at Intrepid. We are so excited to visit the Red Room again – we hope to see you all there!”
“It’s a nightmare come true to bring Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House to life for our guests this year at Halloween Horror Nights,” said Charles Gray, Senior Show Director for Entertainment Creative Development at Universal Orlando Resort. “The show brought true horror to the masses, similar to what we’ve provided our guests at this event for nearly 30 years – Hill House is a perfect fit for Halloween Horror Nights as it enters a new decade of fear.”

More details are set to follow for events on both coasts as fans eagerly await news in regards to the Horror Nights season fear pass offerings and whether they’ll be available this year. It is also yet to be confirmed if spacing and plexiglass barriers as featured in the pop-up mazes at Orlando’s special daytime Halloween events last year will be utilized as a safety precaution for performers and guests.
Halloween Horror Nights begins on Friday, September 3 in Orlando and Thursday, September 9 in Hollywood. Both events run select nights through Sunday, October 31. Select tickets and vacation packages are now on sale for “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Orlando Resort; tickets for the event at Universal Studios Hollywood will be available soon. Due to popular demand, event nights are expected to sell out.
