Gone were the days of a couple Haunted Houses, with 2018’s Halloween Horror Nights™ event, the Art & Design Team chose to expand the event more than ever before. Now with ten Haunted Houses, and five Scare Zones, and some killer intellectual properties, the event continued its goal to be the most popular Halloween destination in the world. This year also brought a new interactive game using The Official Universal Orlando Resort app called TERROR TRIVIA™ where guests could answer Haunted House trivia while waiting in the actual house queue lines.

Stranger Things definitely sold the event for me, not to mention gave me the biggest scare of the night. (And whoever gave it a bad rating up there is out of their mind.) The overall HHN was definitely one of the more unique events between the selection of houses and scarezones. My only critique is that we could have done WITHOUT the Little Miss Muffet section in the Scary Tales house. I HATE SPIDERS.
Time for another very long HHN review: Haunted Houses: 10. Stranger Things: I really didn't like this house, so much so that I would probably call it my least favorite house I've ever been in. There was just something about it I REALLY didn't like. I never really cared for the show, and I just thought this house was boring. 9. Horrors of Blumhouse 2: I thought this house was pretty bad as well. The Purge section was all right, but Happy Death Day was bleh. There were a few fun scenes in this house, but overall it just felt very lackluster. 8. Dead Exposure: Patient Zero: I had very high expectations of this house due to the original being praised as one of the scariest haunted houses ever. However, I was not as scared in this one as I had hoped. It was very fun groping around trying to find my way out though. 7. Trick 'r Treat: The scarezone from HHN27 was one of my favorite scarezones of all time, so I was very excited for this house. The house met many of my expectations, and even showed out the full capabilities of the Parade Warehouse when it comes to set design. There was nothing wrong with the house, I just thought the others were better. 6. Poltergeist: I thought this house was a tad overrated. It did have some great scenes in such, but the beginning of the house was pretty repetitive and boring. The house really captured the movie well though. It took you through all of the most memorable scenes from the movie in a really creative way. 5.Seeds of Extinction: This house was probably the scariest this year. The combination of darkness and camouflage worked really well to create an effectively creepy environment. The costumes were great though a little repetative. To be finished
This was my first year so I went into this event having no knowledge of anything HHN, and came out a superfan of the event. This event deserves credit for getting me hooked on Haunt events.
