“Halloween Horror Nights XXII Survival Guide”

“Halloween Horror Nights XXII Survival Guide”

I am such a scaredy-cat that I wonder why I place myself in paid situations to be frightened. I started going to Universal Orlando Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) back in 2005 and I became addicted to the fun, excitement, and detail that Universal puts into this event. I am going to share with you my HHN survival guide for 2012:

Get there early

  • I cannot express this enough. Unless you’re spending your cell phone money on an Express Pass, I would suggest that you get to Universal Studios at least an hour early before the start of the event. If you’re lucky enough, you may be able to get into the park prior to the specified time and you can knock out two to three houses within thirty to sixty minutes. If you can splurge on an Express Pass, then get it! It will make your night much more enjoyable and it will also make your night feel less rushed.

The more the merrier

  • Going to HHN as a group increases the excitement of the night, but going with your significant other is just as fun.

Kids allowed???

  • Per Universal, this event may be too intense for young children. Adult discretion is strongly advised. There are no child ticket prices available for this event.

Style, Comfort, or Both???

  • Personally, I choose comfort over style, but I ‘m trying to get better at combining the two. What I do strongly recommend is wearing comfortable sneakers for all of the standing, walking, and running you will be doing….trust me, you will thank me later.

Have a game plan

  • Route your path around the park in advance by retrieving the park map. Save the opportunity for riding the permanent attractions for another visit, or towards the end of the night once you have done the seasonal attractions.

Attend on off peak nights

  • Visit Universal HHN Sunday through Thursday to take advantage of the cheaper days (esp. for Florida residents or annual passholders) and the smaller crowd.

For more information on the houses, shows, pricing, policies, and times please visit the offical Halloween Horror Nights 22 website.



I’m a writer who loves ALL things amusement park related. I was born and raised in Florida, which attributes to my Theme Park passion. Every since I was a child I had a natural affinity to the parks here that has now spilled over into adulthood. Instead of rushing over to the thrill rides, like I used to, you may find me in the Italy Pavilion at EPCOT enjoying a nice glass of wine and a delightful book!
