The horror continues as hordes of menacing “scareactors” fill the streets in five ominous scare zones to stalk guests’ every move as they enter the monstrous universe of iconic horror stories from “Crypt TV,” attempt to escape the frights of scare zones’ past in “30 Years, 30 Fears,” resist succumbing to an alien cyber regime overtaking a future dystopia in “Seek and Destroy,” flee the wrath of the Terra Queen and her rooted, evil plans in “Gorewood Forest” and witness a box office “slash” in “Lights, Camera, Hacktion: Eddie’s Revenge.”

And when they need a break from the screams, guests can enjoy two all-new, shockingly-entertaining shows. Marathon of Mayhem: Carnage Factory, a brand-new nighttime lagoon show, transforms the expansive Universal Studios lagoon with renowned visions of fright highlighting some of the biggest names in horror and Halloween Horror Nights history featured in this year’s event. And a fiery new show, Halloween Nightmare Fuel,ignites guests’ waking nightmares with nocturnal creatures, aerialists of the night and frightful fire performers as they come alive to the crackling beat of rock, metal, and electronica music.
