This year, time twists and turns on itself–ripping cinematic greats, cult classics and even original nightmares from decades past into a new era of fear with more terrifying haunted houses than ever, sinister scare zones and outrageous entertainment.

Halloween Horror Nights I AKA Fright Nights

Hey Hipsters! It’s time to relive the ghastly history of Universal’s most anticipated yearly event, Halloween Horror Nights.

Halloween Horrors Nights, created by Julie Zimmerman and John Paul Geurts, began as Fright Nights over in Hollywood, California and was brought to Florida in 1991 for three nights. The original concept of this event was to have a huge Halloween party throughout the Universal Studios Florida theme park. Little did the creators know that this spine-tingling affair would turn into a global phenomenon for over a quarter of a century.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a dream come true for the legions of Harry Potter fans the franchise has built over the last two decades. As one of the more popular attractions at Universal Studios, Diagon Alley features a huge selection of magical activities that range from riding the Hogwarts Express to being a part of the wand selection process first hand.

Harry Potter World in Orlando (and yes I did use that term…this is a Muggles’ guide ), is divided into two sections:

  • Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley – Located in Universal Studios Florida
