We’re not saying that Orlando does Halloween better than anyone else… actually, no that’s exactly we’re saying.
Orlando is full of the country’s best theme parks, and theme parks transform every October into something terrifying – in the best possible way. Of course, if you want the premier in Halloween experiences, then there’s one park you absolutely MUST visit.


Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights has won Amusement Today’s Golden Ticket for Best Halloween Event 11 years running. If you love Halloween and you haven’t experienced this premier haunted house extravaganza you owe it to yourself to come to Florida this October to experience all the spills, chills and thrills your heart can take!

As if that’s not enough, one of the new haunted houses this year is based on Ghostbusters! Take a trip through the streets of New York as a rift opens and chaos takes over the streets! See the temple of Gozer, and even take down that icon of terror, The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man! And whatever you do, don’t cross the streets!

This year, Halloween Horror Nights is all about the 80s. Come explore Hawkins Indiana and The Upside Down in a themed haunted house based on the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things, a haunted house inspired by Jordan Peele’s thought-provoking thriller Us, and of course all the classic Universal Pictures movie monsters like Frankenstein, Dracula, The Creature From The Black Lagoon and many, many more.

Just so you’re aware, Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights doesn’t pull any punches; that means it’s not the best experience for young children. However, if you’ve got a horror movie watching crew who sits through the scariest films without flinching, then maybe it’s time to book a group vacation to do it all in real life!

Bringing the crew? Book a comfortable apartment-style room at The Vista Cay Resort by Orlando Resorts Rental to have one of the best trips you’ll ever have with friends.
