Trick ‘r Treat Returns to Halloween Horror Nights as a Terrifying New House

Trick ‘r Treat Returns to Halloween Horror Nights™ as a Terrifying New House

Break the rules and you'll pay the price.

By: Patrick Braillard

Take out your pen and paper and take notes, the rules of Halloween are returning this fall to Universal Studios Florida. Sam is back and making sure we all celebrate the holiday right in a new Trick ‘r Treat house at Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights.

Last year was the first time Sam and his fellow trick-or-treaters came to Halloween Horror Nights in a terrifying scare zone. You, our fans, loved it, we loved it, and we all wanted more. It was an easy decision to partner with Legendary Pictures and writer-director Michael Dougherty again and bring back Trick ‘r Treat in an all-new experience.

We're throwing you head first into the world of this cult Halloween film, and putting you in the middle of all the grisly scenes and demented characters. These guardians of Halloween will teach you the traditions of the holiday as you find out first hand the consequences of breaking those rules. With monsters around every turn, you need to pay attention…or suffer the ultimate fate.

And then there's Sam who keeps a watchful eye over it all. He's the keeper of the rules and the spirit of Halloween. He may look cute on the outside but you don't want to get on his bad side… or the receiving end of his lollipop.

Trick ‘r Treat Returns to Halloween Horror Nights as a Terrifying New house

Experience the Chaos of Dead Exposure: Patient Zero at Halloween Horror Nights™

Return to the darkness.

By: Patrick Braillard

I'm excited to reveal the second haunted house coming to Halloween Horror Nights 2018. This fall, fear will infect you in a brand new house that lives within a world of a fan-favorite from our past: Dead Exposure: Patient Zero.

The original Dead Exposure house shook guests to their core. Easily one of the most terrifying houses we've ever had—you entered complete darkness with only bright flashes revealing the zombie horde surrounding you.

We're bringing back that same terror. But this time, we're dropping you in the middle of Paris in 1982. The city of lights has gone dark as chaos spreads, unchecked. Hordes of vicious, flesh-eating undead are swarming the streets.

The military is forcing those not affected into quarantine and a vaccination is being given. It's the only chance to ward off the sickness but there are major side effects… blindness.

You'll be lost in the darkness as the undead hunt you. An attack can come from anywhere. You don't have to remember the original house, to understand this single truth: They will find you.

This is our first original house announced for this year's event. We've got even more haunted houses and scare zones to announce for Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights. This year's event will take place on select nights Sept. 14 through Nov. 3.

From Hawkins to Universal Studios – Stranger Things is Coming to Halloween Horror Nights™

Prepare to enter the Upside Down.

By: Patrick Braillard

Get your waffles ready. Netflix's supernatural adventure thriller is turning Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights upside down. You'll be able to experience the suspense and supernatural frights from Season 1 of "Stranger Things" in a new harrowing maze.

We're very excited to be working closely with Netflix – to give our guests an immersive experience into the "Stranger Things" world by recreating some of the show's most iconic scenes, 80's settings, and most loved characters (#RIPBarb).

You'll faithfully follow the storyline, starting off on Mirkwood and then quickly moving to inside Hawkins National Laboratory where things have gone terribly, terribly wrong.

From there you will experience all the most memorable moments and environments from the show while being hunted at every turn by the Demogorgon.

And of course, you'll step into the mysterious darkness of the Upside Down more than once – whether you like it or not.

Stranger Things at Halloween Horror Nights 2018

The best part? "Stranger Things" is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Singapore. Our sister parks will both have mazes too!

Buckle up, kids. This is just the first of nine haunted mazes announced for Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights, beginning Sept. 14 through Nov. 3. And there's even more in store for you with gruesome scarezones crawling with demented creatures and live shows you won't want to miss.
