The most wonderful(?) time of the year has arrived in Orlando, and Universal Orlando Resort is gearing up for its 29th Halloween Horror Nights event. Beginning this evening, September 6th, at 6:30 p.m. guests will be able to enter Universal Studios Florida and into the heart of 10 uniquely themed haunted houses and 5 frightful scare-zones, while also being given the opportunity to catch ghastly live entertainment and merchandise exclusive to HHN itself. But before you head in, we recommend you catch Tim’s Guide for what you can expect this year at Halloween Horror Nights 29, as well as the locations for the houses, scare-zones, live entertainment, exclusive merchandise, food items, and more! Though we won’t cover everything in this article, here’s a quick guide to what you can expect to see throughout Tim’s Guide for Halloween Horror Nights 29.
House and Scare-Zone Locations
From such houses as Ghostbusters and Stranger Things, to the Zombieland Double Tap and Vanity Ball scare-zones, figuring out what is where can be a struggle for first time guests. Add in the scareactors, sights, sounds, as well as additional bodies, and navigating the event can become a struggle in the moment. We recommend brushing up on Tim’s guide to the house and scare-zone locations rather than attempting to tackle this multi-sensory event.
Which House First
When entering Halloween Horror Nights 29, most individuals will be tempted to walk straight ahead towards the Anarch-ade Scarezone as it will be one of the first things to catch your eye. However, Tim recommends making a right before this scarezone, and instead trekking through Vanity Ball on Hollywood Boulevard, as some houses located throughout Tim’s route host entrances next to other house exits. This allows guests to quickly hop from one haunted house to the next with minimal effort.
New Menu Items
I’ll be the first to admit that I love Pumpkin Spice, but we all know that the real reason we’re all excited for Fall is for Halloween Horror Nights’ Pizza Fries. Yes, Pizza Fries are a thing, and they are one of the most anticipated food items of the event. However, Universal Orlando Resort is experimenting with a new kind of fried menu item at the KidZone Pizza Company – S’mores Fries. Needless to say, we are all excited for this new item and will be sure to try it out and report back to everyone with a ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ verdict in a future video.
No Halloween Horror Nights event is complete without some ghoulish memorabilia. In addition to the ‘Tribute Store – Your Halloween Horror Nights Merchandise Headquarters’ located near the Zombieland Double Tap scarezone, exclusive Halloween Horror Nights event merchandise will be available for purchase throughout Universal Studios Florida. Though Tim does cover some of the merchandise available for purchase throughout his guide video, we recommend checking back with TheTimTracker YouTube Channel for future updates on all of the merchandise Halloween Horror Nights 29 will have to offer.
This is just a taste of what Tim’s Guide to Halloween Horror Nights 29 has to offer.
