1. History in the Making
Halloween Horror Nights kicks off Friday and this year Universal is celebrating a milestone: 30 years of scares.
2. Haunted Houses
They have 10 terrifying houses, all of them new with plenty of original concepts and designs. A few of the houses on the lineup this year include, "The Haunting of Hill House" and "Beetlejuice."
3. COVID Precautions
While Universal is highly encouraging guests wear masks while inside the houses, they are not mandatory. As a safety precaution, Universal has added vinyl barriers throughout the houses to separate guests from the scareactors.
Halloween Horror Nights will run select nights through Oct. 31.
Tickets for opening night of the event have sold out, but Universal says there are still tickets available for other nights.
