Universal confirms early start for Halloween Horror Nights

December 19, 2018, 3:08 PM · So much for waiting until after the new year.

Following what looks like an accidental leak of the dates on its website earlier this week, Universal Orlando has gone ahead and confirmed its earliest-ever start for the upcoming Halloween Horror Nights event at the resort.

Halloween Horror Nights 29 will start September 6, 2019 and run through November 2 next year. The after-hours, hard-ticket event will open on an as-yet unannounced number of select nights during the run.

The start on the Friday after Labor Day is the earliest opening ever for Universal's top hard-ticket event, which will run next year for nearly two months. Universal will announce specific operating dates, ticket prices, and the year's line-up of houses throughout 2019, so stay tuned for more updates.

But if you are a fan who has to be there for opening night, now you know when to book. See you there!

Looks like they`re going the Disney route, i.e. milking their Halloween event for every possible dime.
