Universal Orlando has announced the final details for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights 32. They have listed all the houses, zones, and shows that people can see at the event, which will take place on certain nights from September 1, 2023, to November 4, 2023.
This year, Halloween Horror Nights is celebrating its 32nd anniversary with a record-breaking 48 nights of terrifying experiences that can only be had at Halloween Horror Nights. These experiences include a circus that has gone crazy, the long-awaited return of Halloween Horror Nights legend Dr. Oddfellow, and a dark, resurrected story that delves into the haunting history of Universal attractions from the past. In the middle of the screams, guests can see a live show that is both scary and funny, shop at the brand-new Tribute Store, and take a break from the horror with scary-good food and drinks, among other things.
In addition to the previously announced houses of Stranger Things and The Last of Us, this year’s event will feature:
The Exorcist: Believer
“The Exorcist: Believer” haunted house is based on Universal Pictures’ new scary horror movie from Blumhouse and Morgan Creek Entertainment, which comes out in theaters on Friday, October 13. It will take visitors to a busy street market in Haiti, where the innocent purchase of a strange folk doll with three eyes leads to the opening of a demonic portal, the awakening of evil spirits, and the disappearance of two 12-year-old girls in the U.S. After three days, the girls are found, but they have no idea what happened to them. When the girls start acting strangely, it becomes clear that only an exorcism can save them. Everyone who comes into contact with them, even guests who don’t know what’s going on, is suddenly in danger of losing their souls.
Yeti: Campground Kills
In a 1950s campground, a group of tall, scary yetis are running wild and killing anyone who gets in their way, including campers, park rangers, and anyone else. In “YETI: Campground Kills,” campers have to run through cabins, a bait shack, and even the outhouse to get to the ranger tower before it’s too late.
Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count
Universal has finally given more information about the murderous doll’s haunted house, which was announced at the end of last year’s event.
“Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count” makes this killer doll the star of his own haunted house for the first time. It is based on hit USA and SYFY shows and cult classic movies. Chucky is a true sadist and murderer, and he has endured the suffering of his peers’ lack of respect. So begins his plan to kill everyone who comes into his haunted house and turn it into a living slaughterhouse.
Dueling Dragons: Choose Thy Fate
Merlyn, a very powerful wizard, has been turned into the Enchanted Oak, leaving a power void. When two powerful warlocks break into his castle to steal his book of spells, they are transformed into fire and ice dragons. Now, guests are in the middle of their fight and must pick a side and a winner. But be careful! In “Dueling Dragons: Choose Thy Fate,” you never know who will win.
Universal Monsters: Unmasked
The dank Catacombs of Paris hide a much darker secret sixty feet below the busy streets. The all-new haunted house “Universal Monsters: Unmasked” takes guests down into the famous burial grounds, where every corner and crevice is filled with millions of bones and even more scary secrets. Deep in the Catacombs, Universal’s most famous monsters, like The Phantom of the Opera, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Dr. Jekyll and his crazy alter ego Mr. Hyde, and Dr. Jack Griffin, also known as The Invisible Man, wait for the Catacombs to open to the public so they can get revenge on guests. These desperate and dangerous monsters are angry at people who try to find their way through their underground labyrinth.
Dr. Oddfellow: Twisted Origins
During the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, visitors won’t be able to resist going into Dr. Oddfellow’s dangerous menagerie of twisted oddities. There, they’ll see horribly deformed animals and weird monsters. In “Dr. Oddfellow: Twisted Origins,” it costs a lot of souls to join this creepy caravan because it gives the immortal Dr. Oddfellow power.
The Darkest Deal
In the Mississippi Delta, a blues musician named Pinestraw Spruce meets a bad guy named The Collector at a crossroads and makes a deal with him: his soul for musical fame. Guests will see him play in front of a crowd for the first time before The Collector drags him to Hades with the other musicians who learned the hard way what fame costs in “The Darkest Deal.”
Bloodmoon: Dark Offerings
Villagers in Colonial America started to worship the moon all the time. When the blood moon rises at their fall festival, they see it as a sign that they need to find and kill anyone in their village who doesn’t follow their religion. In “Bloodmoon: Dark Offerings,” guests will have to try not to become part of the sacrifice as they collect body parts to make a grisly offering.
This year’s event will feature five scare zones as well as some additional experiences.
Shipyard 32: Horrors Unhinged
Enter a shipping yard in 1940s San Francisco that is full of strange boxes and cages with Dr. Oddfellow’s symbol on them. Be careful, his strange things from nightmares have now gotten away and are spreading fear and chaos.
Jungle of Doom- Expedition: Horror
In the 1920s, Dr. Oddfellow went into the deepest parts of the jungle to do horrible experiments on nature. Now, his monsters are running around and looking for food.
Dr. Oddfellow has gone into a dark dimension to use the power of the Zodiac and live forever. He changes the signs into evil beings that tell people they are going to die. As his star goes up, yours goes down.
Vamp 69: Summer of Blood
At a 60’s music festival in a small town in New York, people will jam with other concertgoers to popular bands until Dr. Oddfellow lets loose a bunch of vicious vampires who are hungry for blood.
Dr. Oddfellow’s Collection of Horror
Dr. Oddfellow will try to get people to come to Halloween Horror Nights by telling them they will live forever. As he shows them all the terrible things that are going to happen, they will soon realize that they might not even make it through the night.
Nightmare Fuel: Revenge Dream
The show that made people dream of the worst things is back on. Nightmares get out of hand as pyrotechnicians and aerialists light up the crowd to the beat of metal and electronic music.
