Published: August 30, 2011 at 9:05 PM

The time has come, after countless teaser pictures via Universal Orlando's new Twitter account and Facebook, Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights 21 is finally revealed. So here is what's coming this year to Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights 21.

The event will include eight all-new houses:

  • Nevermore: The Madness of Poe - The madness of Edgar Allen Poe’s greatest works has come to life. Step into the mind of the iconic writer, where every turn of the page takes you closer to the brink of insanity.
  • The Forsaken - The Forsaken Four ships began Columbus’ fateful voyage, only three became legend. Condemned to a watery grave, the mutinous and cursed crew of that 4th ship has returned with a vengeance. For within the walls of a spanish fort, a maelstrom has brought from the depths…..death itself.
  • H.R. Bloodengutz Presents: Holidays of Horror - Join creature feature host, H.R. Bloodengutz, in his final televised broadcast as he presents a holiday SCARE-athon guaranteed to cleave you screaming for more.
  • The Thing - Paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers in an isolated Antarctic outpost as they’re infected, one by one, by a horrifying creature from another planet. In a place where ther eis nothing, they found something.
  • Saws N' Steam: Into The Machine - Spinning blades and massive, crushing pistons await you around every corner as you are forced deeper into the bowels of a mechanical nightmare. Give yourself to "The Machine."
  • The In-Between - An ominous portal reveals another dimension where all is not what it seems: A realm where our world and another collide. Surrounded by fiendish creatures, your eyes will deceive you with every step through this phantasm of terror.
  • Winter's Night: The Haunting of Hawthorne Cemetery - As snow falls on this normally serene gothic cemetery, the deceased souls that occupy its confines have their sights set upon you. Insuring that the chill you feel up your spine is more than just the cold of night.
  • Nightingale's: Blood Prey - Within every war, the Nightingales have appeared. Able to transform themselves to fit any setting, these savage banshees feed on the weak and the helpless. Patrolling WW1 era trenches, you discover that you are more than just at war…you're being hunted.

And six all-new scarezones:

  • Acid Assault - For decades now the city has been degrading from the effects of acid rain that still falls today. Those that have lived and survived the blistering decay are all alone in the city. Survivors have stripped the city of all life to sustain their own…dare to enter the ACID ASSAULT!
  • Canyon of Dark Souls - Upon entering into the Canyon of Dark Souls, you will feel like a small spec of humanity as the overwhelming sense of death surrounds you. Creatures that dwell within the canyon are not welcoming so walk slowly as to not disturb them!
  • Grown Evil - Enter, if you dare, into our garden where Evil grows. Nature has taken this once well-manicured sanctuary back from the humans who once kept it. Now the creatures that inhabit the garden are making any human that enters their prey!
  • Nightmaze - Journey through the ever-changing maze of darkness! This all black maze will morph and change as you walk through it!!! You will not be scared the same way twice!
  • 7 - As daylight shines upon our Temptresses, their appearance, though evil, allows you the spectacle of beauty. As night falls, these 7 temptresses will show their true colors and take on their true Fatal Evil forms. Beware of your own temptations.
  • Your Luck Just Ran Out - Enter if you dare into the lair of the LUCKY! Your Choices will determine if you make it out alive! Witness lucks deadly wrath. WIll she choose you to be her next victim?!

And will include two shows:

  • Death Drums new - A seductive, hard-hitting and raw, extremem drumming experience. Don't just see 1 show as there are 3 different shows nightly.
  • Bill and Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure - Party on as those two most excellent dudes return to skewer the biggest names in entertainment and pop culture.

Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nigths 21 will run select nights from September 23-October 31. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit

You're missing a scare zone. I'm excited for the drum show and Bill and Ted and the houses and...Okay, I'm just really excited for everything!

I am so excited! This whole time I had my fingers crossed for no clown theme (I have a serious fear of them)....thank you Lady Luck for smiling my way! :) I really look forward to the drum show (being a drummer myself). Typically I don't go to shows unless my kids ask me to. But I will be there for that one! The houses sound great...can't wait for Poe. The thing I am the most excited about is this is my son's first HHN! He is really excited that he will be the first of his friends to go. In preparation, he has been watching horror movies. :)
