ORLANDO, Fla. – After being canceled last year because of the pandemic, Halloween Horror Nights has returned to Universal Studios Florida. Here are five things to know.

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. 

4. Dates

Halloween Horror Nights will run select nights through Oct. 31. 

5. Tickets

Tickets for opening night of the event have sold out, but Universal says there are still tickets available for other nights.
