Dead Man’s Wharf Winter Wake HHN 31 Halloween Horror Nights 2022 Universal Orlando
  1. Spirits of the Coven: You walk into an unsettling 1920s speakeasy only to find out that YOU are the main ingredient in witch’s brew.
  2. Bugs: Eaten Alive: You’re about to face an infestation of the grossest kind!
  3. Fiesta de Chupacabras: The fear of the mythical, fanged creature is no longer a figment of your imagination. It is real, and it can find you if you’re not careful.
  4. Hellblock Horror: After touring the facility, it was clear that these monsters were in for a long stay. Don’t wait around to see their reactions when they’re released!

What are the 2022 HHN Scarezones?

  1. Horrors of Halloween: Come face-to-face with The Pumpkin Lord 
  2. Scarecrow: Cursed Soil – Demented scarecrows do everything they can to make sure they have enough souls to harvest 
  3. Sweet Revenge: This 1950s parade has went terribly wrong and now you’re an unexpected victim of the torturous trick-or-treaters 
  4. Graveyard: Deady Unrest – Don’t be afraid to walk through the unnerving cemetery in the heart of Halloween Horror Nights
  5. Conjure the Dark: Avoid the evil sorceress at ALL cost in this sinister HHN scare zone
