Halloween Horror Night fans, get ready! Universal Orlando Resort dropped a major announcement regarding the event on Thursday.

The theme park company announced five additional haunted houses, five scare zones, and two live shows for the 2021 horror event.


Universal Orlando Resort announced the following haunted houses:

  • Welcome to SCarey: Horror in the Heartland: Halloween Horror Nights guests can step into the town of Carey, featured in previous years of the event, and relive its most horrifying haunts from over the last 30 years.
  • Case Files Unearthed: Legendary Truth: Join a legendary paranormal detective on a ghostly mission.
  • The Wicked Growth: Realm of the Pumpkin:  Become entangled in the sinister roots of Haloween.
  • Puppet Theatre: Captive Audience: Fall victim to a fiendish theatre troupe.
  • Revenge of the Tooth Fairy: Uncover the darker side of what seems to be an innocent ritual. Last year, Halloween Horror Nights was canceled due to COVID-19, but they opened this house for guests to enjoy during the day.

These five houses are joining a lineup of five already announced mazes:

  • Beetlejuice: Enter the terrifying world of the film as the infamous ‘Beetlejuice’ character sends you screaming.
  • Haunting on Hill House: Guests embark on the dark journey experienced by the Crain family in the Netflix show, ‘The Haunting of Hill House.’

  • Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives: This maze picks up where the 1935 classic film left off, with the Bride becoming a scientist and starting her mission to revive Frankenstein's Monster. Last year, Halloween Horror Nights was canceled due to COVID-19, but they opened this house for guests to enjoy during the day.
  • Halloween Horror Nights Icons: Captured: Guests will be within the grasp of iconic Halloween Horror Nights characters like ‘The Caretaker,’ ‘The Director,’ ‘The Usher,’ ‘The Storyteller,' 'Jack the Clown,' 'Chance,’ and more.

That is a total of ten houses announced for the 2021 event.


Throughout the Universal Studios park, there will reportedly be five all-new scare zones. 

They are said to be:

  • Crypt TV: Iconic horror stories from the show ‘Crypt TV.'
  • 30 Years, 30 Fears: A culmination of scare zones from past Halloween Horror Nights events.
