During this 20th anniversary edition Universal takes terror to a whole new level. Visitors can venture into a nightmarish maze of all new haunted houses, electrifying scare zones, and outrageous live entertainment including the ever popular Bill & Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure.  Halloween Horror nights are frightful fun, but these events are only recommended for children 13 and up.
