Add-Ons to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights


To keep the excitement building for its Halloween Horror Nights, Universal Studios has announced four special tours. But be prepared to pay a premium — in addition to the regular admission charge. So warns Dewayne Bevil of Orlando Sentinel’s Theme Park Rangers.

The extra costs range from $55 for a daytime walkthrough to $1,500-$1,800 for private group RIP Tours.

Bevil shares the details:

+ The Unmasking the Horror Tour is a guided, lights-on walkthrough (in the daytime, no less) of three HHN haunted houses. Photos are allowed. There are no more than 15 guests per guide. Cost: $55 per person.

+ The Arcane Insights Tour is a guided tour on that covers all haunted houses and one behind-the-scenes makeup and costuming area during an event night. The group is accompanied by members of Universal’s Art & Design Team, who will add (arcane) insights as you go along. (They’ll also be available for a Q&A with participants.) Other benefits: reserved seating for “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure,” valet parking, access to the RIP Lounge and more. Note: Tour lasts 6 hours. Price: $225 per person.

+ Private RIP Tours are for parties of up to 10 people, and they provide front-of-line access to all haunted houses and select attractions in the park. Other perks: valet parking, RIP Lounge access, “Bill and Ted” reserved seating, coffee and bottled water at end of tour. Price: Between $1,500 and $1,800 per group, depending on the night.

+ Non-Private RIP Tours have many of the same benefits as private, but your party will be mixed with other non-private groupings, capping out at 12 people. Non-privates are limited to two regular attractions thrown in, and the tour ends once you’ve been to those attractions, “Bill and Ted” and every house. (Duration: Between two and four hours.) Price: Between $150 and $175 per person, depending on night.

The annual event runs from Sept. 21 to Oct. 31. Be sure to do your homework since the tours are not held every night. For more information go to Universal’s Halloween Horror Night’s website or call 407-363-8295.
