The fans have spoken: Halloween Horror Nights 25 has been the highest-rated event ever.
Guests at the event have ranked this year as being the scariest and having the best houses in the event’s history. And to top it all off, “Jack Presents: 25 Years of Monster and Mayhem” has been rated this year’s best house. A fitting tribute to the monumental effort that has gone into making this year’s event truly epic.
Here more about what fans are saying in the video below. Then grab your tickets before it’s too late!

Halloween Horror Nights is scary enough, but the thought of turning dozens of college students loose with cameras during the event? Now that’s REALLY frightening. And fantastic.
It all started with coffee and a simple premise – celebrate HHN’s 25th anniversary with some first-person experiences. We (Universal Orlando and the Nicholson School of Communication) hatched the idea at a café just outside of the parks.
Universal’s idea was simple: “Your media students, with cameras, showing everyone on YouTube what it’s like to go through the haunted houses – that could be great!”
I have to admit, though – at first the thought of turning the students loose with cameras was scarier than those roaming chainsaw guys in the scare zones. And just as exciting. So, we got started- 25 students and their friends over three nights invading the park and, to their delight, getting the VIP treatment. The whole idea was for them to be mobile and to NOT distract from the experience, so they brought in their own cameras – phone, GoPros, DSLR’s, media players: you name it, they brought it. These kids were serious!
We saw students with GoPros strapped to their heads, iPhone stabilizers, even a few small handheld lights to get those REALLY scary reactions during in the scare zones between haunted houses. And the best part? EVERYONE was getting in on the scares! I can’t tell you how much video we COULDN’T use because Bride of Frankenstein got right up in the photographer’s face or a column of fire made them jump out of their shoes!
But then the REAL work began, and that’s also when the FUN began. Nicholson students had a week to turn their projects around, and they dove into it with even MORE energy than going to the park. And the best part for me as an educator? Students from different disciplines were all helping each other.
Keep in mind – we have Journalism students, PR students, and straight up big studio RTV students all taking part in this, so not everyone has the same skill set. But when it came time to put these together, they all helped each other. They shared ideas about shots, about editing, and their favorite moments (including the “How scary? It’s pee your pants scary!” line!) from each night. RTV students might have more editing know-how, but the PR students helped them find the great story line. And the Journalism students helped keep everyone’s ideas in order so they didn’t forget about telling their OWN stories.
So, what do we take away from this? Well, the Nicholson students certainly get a night they won’t soon forget, and Universal gets some real first person accounts of what it’s like to be young, having fun, and willing to be scared. And me? I was reminded of just how lucky I am to work with these ‘kids.’
We took a chance letting them run through the park, and they rewarded us big time. They knew how lucky they were to get this chance, and they put their heart and souls into it to create the best product they could.
So, thanks, Universal Orlando – you gave some students a shot, and they took it. I hope you enjoy watching their work. I know I do.

This weekend, me and the boys took a trip to Universal Orlando Resort. Love that place. They have the best rides, and we heard that Halloween Horror Nights is crazy, so we wanted to check that out too.
We had a blast. We cast a few spells in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley. And in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, it really felt like I was at Hogwarts.
I also took some pics with the Minions from Despicable Me, and the Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride was one of my favorites. I loved the 3D animation.
Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit was by far the best roller coaster in the park…I rode that about 5 times in a row. I always like to visit the Universal Orlando theme parks—especially with a few friends.
I can’t lie, the haunted houses at Halloween Horror Nights 25 are the real deal. I definitely jumped back a few more times than I care to admit. My friends needed some nudging to go through, but they toughed it out and had a blast. The Purge house was the first we hit – and my favorite. Freddy vs. Jason was intense, and Jack the clown was literally insane.
I’d recommend it to anyone looking for great time…I can’t wait to go back next year.
Check out photos from my visit and a video of me experiencing one of the houses at Halloween Horror Nights 25 with my fans.

Hello, my fellow Halloween Horror Nights fans! It brings me much terror and great pleasure to bring you a sneak peek of the Insidious house before the event opens this weekend.
Personally, these movies really got under my skin and scared the life out of me! If you’re the type of person that scary movies don’t make you flinch, then all power to you. But that is not me and this house took me right back into “The Further”.
If you’re brave enough, check this video out and see what’s in store for you. For even more terror, Insidious 3 is available on Digital HD September 22 and on Blu-ray October 6.
