Universal Orlando Announces Dates For Halloween Horror Nights 2023
It may only be March, but for horror lovers, it’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween. Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort has won Best Halloween Event for 13 years. And the dates for the event this year have been announced.
The event will be held on select nights Sept. 1 through Oct. 31 and will feature 10 all-new terrifying haunted houses, 5 sinister scare zones, outrageous live entertainment, themed food & drinks and some of the park’s most exhilarating attractions.
Last year was the first year I attended Halloween Horror Nights and I had the best time. Every haunted house was like walking through a movie set. There was so much to look at and the amount of detail was incredible. And while I didn’t find them too super scary, I definitely jumped a lot. And the one thing I think is an absolute must-see when you visit Halloween Horror Nights is the Halloween Nightmare Fuel Wildfire show. It’s full of pyro, aerialists, magic and dancers with killer music and LOTS of fire. Seriously, one of the coolest performances I’ve ever seen.
Tickets are on sale now and more details will be announced in the coming months.

Halloween Horror Nights is going on now through October 31st at Universal Orlando and Marija went last weekend to get in on the spooky action. We’ll have tickets next week, so be listening The WiLD Bunch for your chance to win!
I have to say, Universal does it right! There’s 10 haunted houses, and all of them were like walking through a movie set. There was so much to look at and there were plenty of times I jumped when the scary guys would jump out, but the visuals were amazing! One of my favorites was Sprits of the Coven, which was a 1920’s speakeasy taken over by cackling witches. I also really liked Descendants of Destruction, a post-apocalyptic subway tunnel house.
One thing I think is an absolute must-see when you visit Halloween Horror Nights is the Halloween Nightmare Fuel Wildfire show. It’s full of pyro, aerialists, magic and dancers with killer music and LOTS of fire. My only complaint is that it wasn’t an hour longer, I would love to see a long version of the show, one of the coolest performances I’ve ever seen.
There’s scare zones set up throughout the park as well with different themes around The Pumpkin Lord, Scarecrow, a graveyard and crazy candy killers. You never know what might be lurking as you walk through.
Overall, it was a killer experience! I can’t wait to go again, and if you love all things Halloween, make sure you check it out! For more info, click here
