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.
