Once again it’s time for Universal Studios Halloween Horror nights 2010! This marks the 20th year of this Halloween event, and they are celebrating by making all new haunted houses! Everything will be fresh and gory to the max.
Universal Studios has people that work all year long on the Halloween Horror nights sets and costumes, and this year should really be a big hit. I’ve put together everything you need to know about this years event, so read on!
Universal Studios Halloween Horror nights 2010 is an after hours special ticket event. That means you need to buy a separate ticket to get in, you can’t use your normal theme park ticket.
This year the central theme seems to be fear, but personified. They talk of fear as if it’s a real being, as in this quote= “Fear and what he has created have horrified people for 19 years. And this year, he will be more real than ever.” Weeeee!
There are three major parts to Halloween Horror nights; the haunted houses, the scare zones and the live shows. Most rides will also be running. Here’s a creepy break down of what to expect.

Psychoscarepy: Echoes of Shadybrook
Shadybrook’s doors have been closed for the past 15 years. But that does not stop all the criminally insane souls from walking around at night, looking for revenge,,,
That’s the break down for this years Universal Studios Halloween Horror nights 2010, pretty cool huh! I assume they will also have lots of horror movies playing on the outside walls of buildings to entertain you while you wait in line like last year.
I do NOT recommend kids under the age of 13 for this. They have no age limit, so if you want to bring your 5 year old you can. But I really don’t think they will have a good time. The haunted houses are really scary and the movies they play while you wait in line are very gory, R rated movies.
Halloween Horror Nights will run on these days:
Sept. 24,25,30 Oct. 1-3, 7-10, 14-17, 20-24, 27-31
