Things Get Spooky at Universal Studios

Universal Studios Orlando presents Halloween Horror Nights 2022! They have ten terrifying haunted houses: The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare, Halloween, The Horrors of Blumhouse, Universal Monsters: Legends Collide, Spirits of the Coven, Bugs: Eaten Alive, Fiesta de Chupacabras, Hellblock Horror, Dead Man’s Pier: Winter’s Wake, and Descendants of Destruction. All of these houses have different jump scares and unique decor.

The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare is the newest edition for 2022. This house is based off The Weeknd’s (real name Abel) latest album, After Hours; it is also a new house for the park. Guests enter this house and he stalks you, as you hear his album After Hours. People are dressed up as Abel’s After Hours persona, a red-jacketed, busted-nose character. Abel talks about how his music videos could definitely make a difference in one’s life. He says, “I feel like my music videos have served as a launching pad for a collaboration like this, and I cannot wait for people to experience this madness!” You should really visit this house once you get the chance.

Another haunted house is based on Halloween, a 1978 American independent slasher film. Universal has the classic Halloween house, starring Michael Myers. Step into these horrifying moments and come face-to-face with the masked killer.

Blumhouse Productions also has a new house in Universal. Blumhouse Productions is an American film and television production company founded in 2000. It is mainly known for producing horror films, such as Insidious, The Purge, Split, Happy Death Day, Halloween, Us, and Black Phone. Your will find yourself trapped between a frantic teen and the ruthless serial killer she’s swapped bodies with in Freaky. Then, you’ll try to make a desperate escape from the dark basement of The Grabber before you become his latest victim.
Everyone should go to some type of Halloween house in October. It’s the best way to get the most out of your Halloween, so if you can make it to Orlando next October 31st, be sure to visit Halloween Horror Nights.
