What's the latest on Universal's Halloween Horror Nights?

August 8, 2018, 1:03 PM · Universal Orlando today announced its next original concept house for this year's Halloween Horror Nights — Seeds of Extinction.

This post-apocalyptic scene isn't a wasteland, but the opposite. It's a lush jungle where meat-eating plants have wiped out the human race... save for all you poor souls walking through the house. But don't worry. The plants will make a meal of you soon enough.

On the west coast, tickets now are on sale to the public for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. Universal Express, RIP Tour, and Frequent Fear passes are available on Universal's website.

In addition, Universal Studios Hollywood 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: Chapter 2, and Universal's Classic Monsters. Those join the previously announced mazes themed to Netflix's Stranger Things, plus Trick 'r Treat, The First Purge, and the year-round The Walking Dead Attraction.

Hollywood's scare zones will be Trick 'r Treat (pulling double duty!), Monster Masquerade, Hell's Harvest, Toxxic Tunnel, and Holidayz in Hell. The Jabbawockeez show will be returning for another production, too.

In Orlando, Universal has announced that it will feature 10 houses at this year's Halloween Horror Nights. With previous announcements and the leak of two houses, the line-up at Universal Studios Florida is:

That leaves two more houses, which could be another Blumhouse theme and the Classic Monsters, as in Hollywood, but I suppose there's always the chance that Orlando could do something else in lieu of the Classic Monsters house.

The announced scare zones in Orlando are:

In addition, Academy of Villains will return for another show this year. Halloween Horror Nights starts September 14 in both Orlando and Hollywood, running select nights through November 3 at both resorts.

If humans that only eat vegetables are vegetarians, are plants that only eat people....humanitarians?

Jabberwockeez, dear lord no...on the bright side it's more time to spend doing mazes. Not expecting much of Purge or Blumhouse at Hollywood, but the other 5 have potential. Glad Unlimited Front of Line is a standalone product at Hollywood, they must have read my survey lol. If only Orlando would do Unlimited Front of Line, probably not practical, but I'd pay big dollars for it.
