Universal Adds Two More Dates to Halloween Horror Nights

posted by Alan McBride - 

Universal Orlando Resort has added two event dates to Halloween Horror Nights 2018, with park officials saying it's due to popular demand.

Universal Orlando added  Wednesday, September 19 and Wednesday, September 26 to the roster.

According to park officials, this makes this year's event the longest in history with a total of 36 nights.

Universal also revealed details about the final haunted house that will be featured at Halloween Horror Nights 2018.

The name of the final haunted house is "ScaryTales: Deadly Ever After."

Universal Orlando officials say they're bringing back a fan favorite with "ScaryTales."

According to a description of the haunted house issued by the park, guests will encounter The Wicked Witch of the West, who has seized control of the fairytale realm and is tormenting treasured storybook characters in some very spooky alternate story lines. 

As guests venture through this nightmarish bedtime story, they’ll see familiar characters ... now turned evil ... including a Hansel and Gretel on the hunt for human flesh and a splattered Humpty Dumpty.

This is all added to the mix of an event that, for this season, is focusing strongly on the almost nostalgic scares of the 1980s.

And it may be a winning combination for the park.

Universal Orlando executives are saying that this year's Halloween Horror Nights is proving to be so popular that even the addition of the two extra nights is no guarantee of an opportunity to join the scare-fest.

They advise picking up tickets in advance for those who want to pay a call on the ghosts, ghouls, and other assorted denizens who'll be familiar haunts for Universal.
