    Is Halloween Horror Nights (Orlando) Worth Going To?

    I am planning to go to Universal Orlando/WDW and am thinking about going to Horror Nights. Should I go?

    if you like scary mazes and such, then absolutely. my husband and i went out there for the last weekend of HHN last year and aboslutely loved it. their mazes are so beautifully designed, a bit short on in your face scares, but so awesomely done that that's ok.

    try to go on a thursday if you can, the weekend nights are very crowded. we had the luxury of going 3 nights so that helped us a lot.

    It is REALLY scary. They are adding a TON more scare zones this year. Personally it is too scary for my taste! But I would reccomend going on a non-peak night, so that the park is more empyt, and it is a lot scarrier that way.

    Keep watching the Orlando Fun Tickets website we should be getting HHN tickets again this year!

    glad to hear they're adding more scare zones!! The Chainsaw Brigade from last year was amazing, but they were pretty much the only scare zone where actual scaring was going on..i say bring on more terror!

    The 2006 HHN I went to was absolutely amazing. I'd go there in a heartbeat, and this year is looking better than ever with rumors of there being like, six icons this year.

    I dragged my wife along in 2007 (on our Honeymoon, no less!) and she hated every minute of it.
    I was drawn in because of the use of horror movie icons (Jason, Freddy etc), but the sheer number of people meant that the queues were always 60mins plus, there was no way to get scared on the street because you were always fighting your way through the throng and even the queues for the regular attractions were longer than I've ever seen them.
    And this was on a Thursday night with express passes!

    I took ages just to walk from MIB to Jaws and there seem to be a major scuffle breaking out every half hour as everyone got drunker and drunker.

    I loved the theming and attention to detail in the houses (and Bill & Ted was hilarious), but I won't be back until Universal cap the crowds at a more manageable level.

    I have been two previous years, and each year the house designs have largely been awesome and great design, good actors...if you love horror, it is a must see, it's very well done overall. As has been mentioned, they sell beer and shooters and such every ten feet, so as the night wears on expect lots of drunk people heh....last year I went there was a guy vomitting in the street, something you see rarely at the Disney parks.

    One of my earliest Disneyland Memories is of a woman getting off the teacups and creating a protien spill all over the place!

    The one thing about HHN is that it is Advertised as an adult event. So that being said, i really don't mind the adult beverages everywhere!

    Where I have issues with adult beverages is when people drink around the world in Epcot during Food and Wine, and they pass out near Japan, or scream during the American Adventure.

    Happens all the time at Epcot. And that's during normal operating hours.
