Halloween Horror Nights 2022


This Halloween at Universal is the return of Halloween Horror Nights. Where fear and sorrow lies at every corner of your eye.

“Last year Halloween Horror Night was really great to go to with friends. It was such a great experience I really hope that this will be as good as last year,” says freshman Chloe Bechtold.

There will be 10 new haunted houses for 2022, so make sure to be ready for some good scares. The first one is the Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare. For the first time ever, multi award-winning artist The Weeknd joins forces with Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights to inspire an all-new, terrifying haunted house based on his record-breaking “After Hours” album. With the eerie sounds of the hit album reverberating throughout the experience, guests will step into a surreal living nightmare  – filled with grotesque characters and themes inspired by the artist’s music and short films.


This year there will also be a house dedicated to John Carpenter’s terrifying classic 1978 slasher film  – Halloween – where guests come face-to-face with the merciless Michael Myers. As guests make their way through his dilapidated home and chilling moments from the film, they’ll narrowly dodge attacks from the knife-wielding Myers as he stalks their every move.

“I love the movie Halloween, so this is really exciting! I can’t wait to finally meet one of my favorite horror characters and experience the horror,” says sophomore Kayden McCartney.


The Horrors of Blumhouse Two horror masterpieces comes to life in The Horrors of Blumhouse. Guests will find themselves trapped between a frantic teen and the ruthless serial killer she’s swapped bodies with. Then, they’ll try to make a desperate escape from the dark basement of The Grabber’s “fun” house before they become his latest victim in the terrifying The Black Phone.

“The black phone was a really good movie so I hope they didn’t mess up this attraction. I think that The Black Phone really brings a new kind of horror in the film industry so experiencing it at Halloween Horror Night is really something to look forward to,” says sophomore Cayman McClellan.

Prepare for the Spirits of the Coven! Guests will be invited to a lively 1920s speakeasy, but something sinister is brewing beneath in Spirits of the Coven. A coven of seemingly beautiful flapper witches will lure those who enter into a hidden brewing area. Once they’ve ensnared their victims, they’ll reveal their haggish true form and turn guests into a witch’s brew. They’ll be cackling; everyone else will be screaming.

I hope you’re not bug squeamish since the next attraction is Bugs: Eaten Alive, while touring a 1950s home of the future, guests will be swarmed by hordes of revolting insects after a pest control system failure unleashes them. Many-legged horrors, growing, mutating and laying eggs in human hosts will worm their way into the deepest of fears. Those who dare enter will be dropping like flies in “Bugs: Eaten Alive.”

Now let’s get a bit more cultural with Fiesta de Chupacabras. The mountains of Latin America are filled with many wonderful traditions. In one tiny village, they pay tribute to the legendary creature Chupacabras with an annual fiesta. In “Fiesta de Chupacabras,” there’s more to the legend than meets the eye. And in this colorful village, the streets are lined with the crimson blood of visitors.

Are you scared of penitentiaries? If so, you fell unlucky, get ready for Hellblock Horror. They too do time for their crimes. In “Hellblock Horror,” guests will have to survive visiting hours in a secret penitentiary that houses treacherous monsters and fiends of all kinds that are hell bent on taking over and destroying the world. The interdimensional power core containing the inmates has failed and the monsters are breaking out of their cells, allowing them easy access to guests, and the exit.

If you weren’t scared of the sea enough already, get ready for Dead Man’s Pier: Winter’s Wake. A quiet and quaint New England fishing village like this is usually ripe with ghost stories. Do you have what it takes to survive one? Fishermen swallowed by the waves have washed ashore and are eager to seek their revenge. Hide from their hooks and navigate their nets. They’ll stop at nothing to secure their live human bait.

The New York subway has not been taken over by hordes of hungry mutants, welcome to Descendants of Destruction. Deep inside the dark and deserted tunnels of New York’s subway system reside hordes of hungry mutants. Against your better judgment, you descend into their feeding ground. Don’t count on the trains for a quick escape. They haven’t been in operation for quite some time.

Scare Zones

Pumpkins are becoming alive in the Horrors of Halloween. The Pumpkin Lord, the spirit of Halloween, has returned to take over this year’s event, summoning hordes of fiendish creatures including demons, ghosts and witches. Terror has taken root.

Scarecrows aren’t only scaring crows now, but terrorizing humans. Scarecrow: Cursed Soil; At an abandoned farm, scarecrow sentinels have risen from the crust of the earth to hunt souls and seek revenge. They’ll harvest the screams of those who dare enter this dilapidated barn.

Oh no! Sweets have had a turn for the worst; Sweet Revenge. The sweets from Major Sweets’ candy company have turned these 1950s kids into crazed killers.

This scare zone will be located in the New York area of the park near the Revenge of the Mummy attraction.
