Every year Universal Studios terrifies thrill seekers with its Halloween Horror Nights. This year’s Halloween Horror Nights will feature mazes from both iconic movies and shows. Some of the mazes include The Shining, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Insidious, and so much more. 

Halloween Horror Nights is a great place to go with family or friends to get you into the Halloween spirit and get a good scare. Universal Studios also has select rides like Revenge of the Mummy, The Simpsons Ride, Transformers – The Ride- 3D, and Jurassic Park: In The Dark open during Horror Nights.

“It was absolutely fantastic. I had so much fun with friends and it was a cool experience overall. I met some cool people which was great. The only thing that I did not like was the long lines which kind of prevents people from going to pretty much all of the mazes”, says SGHS Student Emileano Castillo, who attended the event last year. Elizabeth Padilla also attended Horror Nights and she said “My initial thoughts were “Enter if you dare!” After experiencing it, I thought it was an awesome, immersive experience, if you’re a horror fan. If you’re into it then it should be fun because it’s as if you’re stepping into the movie. Something I didn’t like were the ticket prices and the amount of time you have to wait for some of the mazes. A highlight of mine was meeting some celebrities.”

This year it will begin September 15th and end November 4th. Purchase tickets now to avoid missing out on a great October event.
