Halloween Horror Nights Orlando 28 Touring Plan

Touring plans make it easy for you to get the most out of your trip by outlining the order you should visit houses and shows, allowing you to enjoy the top experiences at the event.

This touring plan was created for those visiting Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights event for a single day; however, those attending the event for a longer period may still take advantage of this plan. This touring plan assumes that you are attending the event from starting time and staying until the event ends. Although this plan is specifically designed for those without a Halloween Horror Nights Express pass, which allows you to skip the regular lines at all houses, it may be still be used by such visitors.

Prior to visiting Universal Orlando, we recommend that you download the official Universal Orlando Resort app on the App Store or the Google Play Store. The app provides wait times, showtimes, a resort-wide map, and more.

You should fully review the information in this touring plan prior to using it to ensure the houses you wish to experience are prioritized.

ENTERING THE EVENT

We recommend getting to the park turnstiles by at least 4:45 PM to be one of the first into the park. You’ll be permitted to enter the park about 30 minutes before the event officially starts. When you have entered the park, you can grab a guide map to help locate the event’s houses and show and to view showtimes as well as other details. If you download the official Universal Orlando Resort app, this information and more can be accessed on it.

TIP: If you’re visiting Universal Studios Florida during the daytime, stay in the park and wait at the Finnegan’s Bar & Grill “Stay and Scream” location. This will allow you to enter the houses before guests at the turnstiles. When your group is released into the park, enter the Stranger Things house first, and then continue to follow this touring plan. You can also choose to wait at a different location and experience the houses in that area before continuing to follow this touring plan. Don’t rush your way to every house or show. As previously noted, take your time to enjoy the various scare zones located throughout the park. We advise that you eat a meal prior to attending the event so that you don’t take too much time out of your night. If you must, grab a snack at the various concession stands in the park.

NOTE: It is not guaranteed that you’ll experience all of the experiences listed by following this touring plan. We recommend skipping any house or show that you may not be interested in.

ON-SITE HOTEL GUESTS: If you’re not visiting Universal Studios Florida during the daytime, we recommend using the designated entrance for on-site hotel guests. You won’t be let into the park earlier than guests at the regular entrance, but you’ll avoid the large crowds.

HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS EXPRESS VISITORS: Although you have the ability to skip the regular lines at the houses, greatly reducing your wait times, we still highly recommend following this touring plan. This touring plan is designed to reduce your time in line, even if you’re using an Express pass. The Express line may be half the wait time of the regular line, so following this line will still help minimize the time you spend in lines. It should be noted that you are only permitted to use the Express pass once per house. Due to this, we suggest using the regular line if the posted wait time is below 30 minutes and you interested in revisiting the house. You can then use the Express line afterward when the regular line has a longer wait time.

GUESTS VISITING MULTIPLE NIGHTS: If you’re attending the event for more than one (1) night, we recommend sticking to this touring plan for the first night to ensure that you visit the top experiences. The next time you attend the event, you can choose to revisit the houses you enjoyed most, experience the attractions that you previously skipped, or visit the available attractions.
