Universal Orlando has announced that there will be a record 10 haunted houses for this year’s edition of Halloween Horror Nights.
They haven’t all been revealed yet, but there will be a maze based on the first season of Netflix’s Stranger Things and the 1986 film Trick ‘r Treat.
There will also be five "scare zones" set up around Universal Studios, including an ’80s-themed scare called Vamp 85: New Year’s Eve featuring "metal head vampires." One called the Twisted Tradition area will have rotted pumpkins and human sacrifices, and there will be "decrepit creatures" in the Harvest.
The popular Academy of Villains dance troupe will return for its third consecutive Halloween Horror Nights The ghouls’ show of intense choreography was the breakout star of the last two Horror Nights, taking some attention away from the mazes themselves.
This is the 28th edition of Halloween Horror Nights, and it will be at Universal Studios theme park on 34 select nights between Sept. 14 and Nov. 3. Tickets start at $62.99 at halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando.
