Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights Featuring “Trick ‘r Treat”

During the spookiest time of year there are a few guidelines all ghosts and goblins should follow. Always stay on sidewalks. Never go to a stranger’s house, and never go out alone.” –Trick ‘r Treat

The Halloween classic Trick ‘r Treat will be brought to life for guests of Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood by way of an all-new, chilling maze “that dares guests to live by the rules or suffer the consequences.” We might need to grab a butterbeer before diving into this one!

The Trick ‘r Treat maze will recreate some of the movie’s most iconic, shocking scenes set on Halloween night. Whether it’s traversing through Mr. Kreeg’s house or encountering Sam, the spirit of Halloween, guests will come across familiar faces and experience the secrets of Warren Valley.


Legendary Pictures’ iconic horror film “Trick ‘r Treat” will terrify Halloween rule-breakers in all-new mazes at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights.


This isn’t the first time Universal Studios guests have become horror film victims during the more than 25 years Halloween Horror Nights have been held in Hollywood and Orlando. With more details coming soon, guests can expect the traditional movie-quality mazes – including a maze featuring the Stranger Things series, themed scare zones in the streets, and dark corners concealing scareactors who will be ready to get guests to jump right out of their skin. (We think Peeves would approve of the scareactors in particular.)

Universal Studios has been ushering guests right into the middle of powerful stories for more than 25 years, one of its most famous experiences being Diagon Alley in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, particularly around Christmas! Orlando’s on-site hotels are said to be destinations in and of themselves, with a new hotel being introduced this August, Universal’s Aventura Hotel. On the opposite coast, Universal Hollywood will be opening its new attraction Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest on June 15, 2018.
