Halloween Happenings on I-Drive

Thursday, September 28, 2017
The most Spooktacular season of the year is upon us and International Drive Orlando is embracing all things ghoulish, gruesome, and grotesque. Whether you fancy a family-friendly outing, a scary good time, or something a little different, there’s plenty to do to celebrate the start of the holiday season. Here’s a few exciting experiences to check off your Orlando bucket list this Halloween.
2017 marks the 27th season of Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights where the streets of Universal Studios come alive with hordes of horrifying mutants, monsters, and maniacs. Most anticipated this year are the haunted houses that will surely terrify you to the core.
The Shining
Explore the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado and become terrorized by the hotel’s dark secrets and homicidal tendencies. Universal calls this the most terrifying haunted experience imaginable – and we absolutely agree! Will you make it through without losing your mind?
Saw: The Games of Jigsaw
The Jigsaw Killer has returned to torment even the sweetest of us with his twisted take on poetic justice. Will you fall into his trap or make it out alive?
American Horror Story: Volume 2
Three horrifying stories converge to create one disturbing house. Meet a deranged cast of characters who not only seek to steal your life, but your soul.
Horrors of Blumhouse
When three deranged filmmakers come together, they create a story capable of haunting you to the core. Get a dose of Insidious, Sinister, and The Purge in Horrors of Blumhouse.
Ash Vs. Evil Dead
Will you laugh until you cry or cry until you sinisterly laugh? Ash vs. Evil Dead expertly blurs the line between horror and comedy. Take a journey through this horrifically hilarious house… if you dare!
Dead Waters
Aquaphobes need not enter. Dead Waters will submerge you into a pestilent swamp that oozes evil. Enter only if you feel you can escape.
The Fallen
Light meets dark in this eternal war and you’re caught in the crossfire. Will you be saved?
Scarecrow: The Reaping
As if abandoned farms weren’t scary enough, this house will bring your biggest fears to life! Be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice as you are reaped by the Scarecrow.
The Hive
The vampires are thirsty and you’re full of delicious blood. Get through the house without awakening the bloodsuckers who have a savage, bestial hunger that only you can satisfy.
Halloween Horror Nights runs from September 15 through November 4, 2017.
