Halloween Horror Nights Named Nation’s “Best Halloween Event” 

Posted on


Guests have spoken…and Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 26 is now the highest-rated in Halloween Horror Nights history. This year’s event packs a powerful line up of nine disturbingly-real haunted houses based on some of the most popular names in entertainment and horrifying original stories, five terrifying scare zones filled with live scareactors and two live shows – and fans have ranked this year’s event the best yet.

 


Plus, this year’s event also features the highest-rated haunted house in Halloween Horror Nights history – “American Horror Story.” In this thrilling maze, guests become the next doomed residents of Murder House from Installment 1, tortured performers in the disturbing and twisted Freak Show from Installment 4, and victims of the otherworldly, death-dealing Hotel from Installment 5 of the FX hit television series.

“You don’t want to miss a single thing they have here. Every single part is scary to me.”

 

“The American Horror Story house was hands down the best.”

DISNEY COMPATIBLE Walker Mobility works specifically with the theme parks, so help is never far away. Our scooters are also monorail, boat and bus friendly. Other companies rent scooters, but can’t provide you help while you’re inside the park. Also, their scooter models are not optimized to navigate the park, the boats, the monorail or the buses—a must-have to enjoy the parks.
