Annual Events: Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando is fast approaching a quarter of a century of scaring the ever-loving @#$!%& out of beyond-delighted horror fans and they've got no intention of slowing down. People plan entire Orlando vacations around this fright fest, which runs select nights from September through November every year. With some houses based on big-name tie ins from television, film and gaming (in recent years these include "The Walking Dead," "An American Werewolf in London" and "Resident Evil") and others spun from the creative minds in house, each season is a wholly original production, populated by hundreds of scare-actors in a park that transforms, quite magically, from a family-friendly haven in the daytime to the stuff that nightmares are made of when the sun goes down.

Annual Events: "Single-night tickets run $90+ but Universal offers a host of resident, Stay and Scream and other discounts that bring the price way down. Do your research."
