The annual scream-inducing event, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort, is offering a discounted rate for current UCF students, as it celebrates its 27th year.

Students can purchase a $60 ticket, valid only on November 3rd. A maximum of six tickets can be purchased by a student with a valid UCF ID.


Tickets are available for purchase at the SGA Ticket Center, located on the first floor of the UCF Student Union.


The promotion saves students $23, when compared to the equivalent FLEX ticket, available on HHN’s website, which costs $83 after tax.


Yianni Babiolakis, a sophomore studying electrical engineering, was encouraged to go after learning about the promotion.

“I probably wasn’t going to go to Halloween Horror Nights but now I will”, Babiolakis said

Guests can look forward to an eventful night. This year, HHN is featuring nine haunted houses, five of which are based on classic films and franchises, like The Shining and SAW, where guests can relive iconic scenes and come face-to-face with unforgettable characters.

The other four chilling houses are based on original concepts, like Scarecrow: The Reaping, in which guests creep through abandoned farmhouses and winding corn fields, all while evading scarecrows at every turn.

Earlier in October, reporters from Knightnews were given an in-depth look at the production of HHN by Charles Gray, an HHN Director, and had the opportunity to ask questions.

Halloween Horror Nights 27 will run through November 4th. This special offer will give students a more affordable opportunity to experience the “nation’s premier Halloween event”, as described by HHN.
