Halloween Horror Nights 2016

Universal Studios does an incredible job every year turning their park into Halloween for September and October for Halloween Horror Nights at both their Hollywood and Orlando parks (they also hold HHN at their Singapore and Japan parks). Every year, they wait until July to announce the main attractions for the coming Haunting Season. That day has finally come!

The main attractions for Halloween Horror Nights 2016, also known as Halloween Horror Nights 26, are:

Halloween: Hell Comes to Haddonfield

“Michael Myers is still alive and still out for blood in this all-new house.”

The Exorcist

“Go inside the mind of a tormented girl, possessed by evil. It will leave you haunted.”

 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

“Experience every scene, every kill, every bone-chilling rev of the chainsaw from the original masterpiece.”

 You Won’t Stand A Chance

“Dare to enter Chance’s mind as she transforms the reality around her by creating a surreal theatre of madness.”

See a trend? Other than the final attraction listed above, HHN 26 is all about classic horror movies from the 1970s! HHN at Universal Studios Hollywood will even be featuring a Freddy vs. Jason attraction. Halloween Horror Nights will be at Universal Studios for select nights from September 16 through October 31. You can visit the HHN website for more information about the event.


Universal Studios just announced two new HHN 26 houses, from two IPs you’ll surely scream over. Read on below.


The Holiday 2015 horror film Krampus, from the mind of Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty, is getting its own house at Halloween Horror Nights this year!

“As a blizzard rages, St. Nicolas’s evil counterpart and his band of Dark Minions claim the souls of the faithless.”

American Horror Story

The famous TV show AHS, which will be coming back for Season 6 this September, will certainly be the biggest attraction of the event this year.

“Relive sinister threats from Murder House, Freak Show and Hotel in this extensive, terrifying house.”
