Even through Halloween is still more than seven months away, the creative team at Universal Studios Florida never stops thinking about death, destruction, and general mayhem! On Monday, March 24, Universal Orlando announced that Halloween Horror Nights will return even earlier for its twenty-fourth year, with more terrifying experiences than ever before, all based on some of the biggest names in horror and pop culture.

According to today's release, the event will take place on September 19, 20, 25, 26, 27 and 28; October 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 30 and 31; and November 1.

Now encompassing a total of 28 horrifying nights, parkgoers will have the chance to try and survive eight blood curdling haunted houses, navigate multiple spine-chilling street experiences with terrifying “scareactors,” enjoy two outrageous live shows and experience many of Universal Studios Florida’s most exciting rides and attractions. Ticket packages and more information about the event will be released soon.

As a golden ticket ward winner for best Halloween event for the past six years, the people at Universal Orlando have their work cut out for them if they hope to make it seven for seven. With increasing competition from Busch Gardens Tampa, as well as other highly produced haunts throughout the world, the bar keeps getting higher and higher each season. It will be interesting to see what terrifying thrills await the bravest amongst us this year.
