Halloween Horror Nights Orlando Review
Halloween Horror Nights Orlando Review – It’s our Family Photo Review for Halloween Horror Nights. These are the views of our team for the 2017 event.
On September 15, 2017, the My Central Florida Family team attended Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando.
Now, before we begin, this event is recommended for children over 13. We used the opportunity for a Parent’s Night Out this year, but last year, we did allow our then 14 year old to attend. Obviously, you will use your personal judgments to determine if this is a great opportunity for a Parent’s Night Out, a night out with your older kiddos, or if this is not an event for you. This year, I took my 7 year old to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween, which may be more your speed with smaller kiddos. You can read that review here.
With that said, I first attended Halloween Horror Nights when I was in high school (in the 90’s). I attended again once in my 20’s and not again until last year and again this year. After attending last year, we truly enjoyed ourselves and had a seasonal experience that got us in the mood for Halloween.
This year, we fast passed the lines with the Express Pass and we were able to do all 9 houses in one night. Our personal favorites were Dead Waters and American Horror Story. As with last year, I started off being very easily scared and simply walked with my eyes closed as I walked close to my husband. But, as the evening went on, by the 9th house, I was able to open my eyes and enjoy the houses. The attention, decor, and scare opportunities are well done within each house.
I truly enjoyed the scare zone between ET and Mel’s Diner. It was truly a beautiful masterpiece (as seen to the left). The scare zones are always a little intimidating as you continuously look for the scares in your path.

I asked about the best days and times to come out to the event and they told me that they have more dates than ever before, and on the side, Wednesdays and Sundays are great days to attend. They said not to pass up a chance to hit the restroom and wear comfy shoes.
Halloween Horror Nights runs from September 15 – November 4, 2017. This is a one-of-a-kind event that can be even more fun in a big group. If you need to get into the Halloween spirit, if you love Halloween, if you love horror movies, or if you’re simply looking for a unique time with friends or (age appropriate) family, check out this year’s event. We truly enjoyed ourselves. I don’t watch horror films and I don’t love being scared, but it was a fun time with friends and family. We’re fortunate to have this opportunity in our own backyard!
