Florida’s history is coming back to haunt as Dark Horizon: Point of No Return makes its debut in Orlando with three gruesome haunted houses, two death-defying live entertainment stages, multiple immersive bars, private party Bootlegger Bungalows and more.
The haunted attraction is divided into different zones, each highlighting pieces of Florida’s dark history, myths and lore.
UCF students can take advantage of two college nights — on Thursday and Oct. 31 — by purchasing tickets online and using promo code UCF40 at checkout for 40% off general admission tickets. The offer ends on Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. Free shuttles will pick-up at 6pm and 8pm from Nike (spot #6) to bring to Dark Horizon entrance. Then, same shuttles will be collecting students from Dark Horizon to return to the same location at 10pm and 12am (midnight).
“We really like to dive into local legends and history,” said Dark Horizon Co-Producer Charity Hill.
With the feel of a pirate port from the late 1700s, The Port features the Bootlegger Bungalows, Walk the Plank Pub & Pier, Siren Stage, Dark Horizon Gift Shop, Shark Bites and the entrance to the Marketplace and Panic! 4-D Maze Experience.
The Port is also home to the haunted house, Ghostship, a disease-infested, loot-filled vessel adrift on the high seas. This phantom tall ship is filled with deranged and decaying seamen bound to wreak havoc in Dark Horizon’s Port.
The Glades Zone
Escape the clutches of one of Florida’s first serial killers, Edgar “Bloody” Watson in the haunted house: Murder Island.
Known as a hotbed for murderers, ancient creatures and bizarre tales, thrill-seekers will come face-to-face with the brutality that shadowed the 10,000 islands in the late 1800s turning it into a shallow grave for at least 57 of Bloody Watson’s sugar cane workers.
The Glades Zone is also home to the VIP Storm Cellar, Outpost Pub and Gator Grub.
Experience Sacred Circle Stage and Shelter Patio in The Village.
This area is under the enchantment of Mambo Cècile and the haunted house: Vodou. The high priestess has awakened the ancient Loa Agwe, spirit of the water, so proceed with extreme caution through the foggy bog to the underworld Volikan.
Dark Horizon will be open through Nov. 2, and general admission ticket prices start at $20 online with Happy Haunting Hour, Fast Fright, Evil Express, Ultimate Scream tickets and Storm Cellar R.I.P. Lounge keys available.
