Depths of Fear

What You Need to Know About Halloween Horror Nights 2019:
1) IT'S NOT FOR KIDS
Nothing about the Halloween Horror Nights are geared up for kids. We've seen kids at past events, so it's really down to parents to make the decision, but it's definitely an older teen and adult event. Not only is the scare factor pretty high, but alcohol is sold throughout the park too.
We strongly urge parents with children under the age of 13 to reconsider visiting this event with their children. They will be exposed to extremely adult material.
2) THINK HARD ABOUT EXPRESS PASSES
We can't express (no pun intended!) how popular these events are. The Express Passes are essential on peak nights. Yes, it makes it a high-priced night out, but your experience will be hugely diminished without an Express Pass on many nights.
We made the mistake of not getting an Express Pass a few years ago and the lines were 2 to 3 hours for the popular haunted houses. We missed out on a LOT that visit. Express Passes for peak nights will sell out.
Note: Express Passes that come complimentary with select Universal hotel stays are NOT valid for Halloween Horror Nights.
3) Consider an Upgrade
By far our best experience was the RIP Tour. We loved it! If your budget allows, splurge for this if you want to see EVERYTHING with minimal fuss and zero lines. But this upgrade doesn't come cheap, starting at $199.99 (inc tax) per person PLUS event ticket. It's all down to personal choice and budget.
Premier and Preferred Annual Passholders get 10% off and Power Annual Passholders get 5% off, on select event nights.
We hope you survive to tell the tale of your Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando. Don't scream too loud now!
