First tickets go on sale for Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights

July 30, 2018, 1:25 PM · Update 2 (Aug. 7): Tickets are now on sale to the public. Here is the link. General admission, Universal Express, RIP Tour, and Frequent Fear passes are available. In addition, Universal has announced details for Terror Tram (hosted by Hollywood Harry again), and confirmed that four more mazes will be announced. A website glitch (now corrected) showed those as Poltergeist, Halloween 4, Blumhouse 2, and Universal Classic Monsters.

Update: After initially opening the ticket link to everyone, Universal now has restricted the pre-sale to annual pass members only.

Universal Studios Hollywood has put its first batch of tickets on sale for this year's Halloween Horror Nights, which kicks off September 14.

Tickets are available only for the first two weekends of the event, which runs select evenings through September and October. Tickets for other nights, and to the general public, will go on sale August 7.

But if you buy the early bird tickets before then, you get your choice of four bonus benefits, at no extra charge:

The bonus benefit pre-sale offer ends August 6.

Universal Studios Hollywood also confirmed that it will feature eight mazes at this year's event, of which it has announced Stranger Things, Trick 'r Treat, and The First Purge. HHN also will have an all-new live show and Terror Tram this year. (Jabbawockeez appeared the past few years.)

Tickets are available at Universal's pass member website and range from $67-75, depending upon the night selected. Universal is calling this a "pre-sale offer," with savings up to 30% off the regular prices that will become available next week.

Please post a link for how to set up an account to buy Horror Night Tickets. The one provided goes to a login page with no option to create an account. The normal ticket page doesn't include HHN tickets. Searching on Google just got me the 2017 page. Thanks

I updated with the note that Universal now has put the ticket link behind its AP wall.

It appears like the Halloween Horror nights tickets are roughly $100 so after the 30% discount they're roughly $70. Does a "Silver Pass" annual passholder get this same discount and are they able to buy four tickets off of one annual pass?

My thinking is that if I can save $120 on the Halloween Horror Nights tickets AND get one of the bonus benefits for each one I might as well pay the $179 for a Universal Silver Annual Pass. It's kinda like getting the annual pass for only $59. That only works though if I'm able to buy four Halloween Horror Nights tickets.

Also, if I buy my annual pass now but don't actually use it for the first time till late next month am I still able to use it to buy the Halloween Horror Nights tickets in advance? Like immediately.

Another question... I don't see Sunday September 23rd listed as being a date that Halloween Horror Nights is happening. Does anyone know if it will be happening this day?

Thanks in advance for any and all info!!
