Six original houses round out Universal Orlando’s 2022 Halloween Horror Nights lineup

Art for six original Halloween Horror Nights 2022 houses

After sitting on the majority of their house announcements until less than a month before Halloween Horror Nights 2022 kicks off in Orlando, Universal has filled out this year’s lineup with six original houses, marking the second year in a row where IP houses have been outnumbered original houses.

The six original houses are Bugs: Eaten Alive, Dead Man’s Pier: Winter Wake, Descendants of Destruction, Fiesta de Chupacabras, Hellblock Horror, and Spirits of the Coven. In addition to these houses, the five scare zones were also announced. They are Conjure the Dark, Graveyard: Deadly Unrest, Horrors of Halloween, Scarecrow: Cursed Soil, and Sweet Revenge. And the two shows this year include the stage show Halloween Nightmare Fuel: Wildfire and the lagoon show Ghoulish! A Halloween Tale.

See the descriptions of the houses, scare zones, and shows below as written by Universal, minus their excessive use of the term “scream squad.” Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights runs select nights from September 2 to October 31. Tickets are on sale now.


Bugs: Eaten Alive – While touring a 1950s home of the future, you’ll be surrounded by the slime of bugs everywhere as hordes of many-legged terrors descend upon you and your scream squad. You’ll be dropping like flies.

Dead Man’s Pier: Winter Wake – In a New England fishing village, undead fishermen emerge from the waves to seek their revenge. You may have escaped their hooks in the scare zone. Now they’ll reel you in and drag you under.

Descendants of Destruction – Careful not to leave any of your friends behind as you descend the subway tunnels of a deserted New York. Lurking in the dark are hungry mutants looking to feast on the last remnants of humanity.

Fiesta de Chupacabras – Visit a Latin American village where the legend of the creature Chupacabras is celebrated with a colorful fiesta. And the streets are lined with the crimson blood of tourists like you and your amigos.

Hellblock Horror – Enter a prison whose savage inmates are monstrous creatures. If they break free from their cells, it’s a death sentence for everyone.

Spirits of the Coven – A coven of beautiful flapper witches will lure you into their 1920s speakeasy, reveal their haggish true form and turn you into a witch’s brew. They’ll be cackling; you’ll be screaming.

Scare Zones

Conjure the Dark – On the first All Hallow’s Eve, an evil sorceress called forth monstrosities from dark dimensions. Now your blood will fuel them.

Graveyard: Deadly Unrest – On All Hallow’s Eve, a dark storm descends upon a cemetery and awakens long-dead spirits. No one living can escape them.

Horrors of Halloween – The Pumpkin Lord, the spirit of Halloween, has taken over this year’s event, summoning hordes of fiendish creatures. Terror has taken root.

Scarecrow: Cursed Soil – At an abandoned farm, scarecrows have risen from the crust of the earth to hunt you and seek revenge. They’ll harvest your screams.

Sweet Revenge – The sweets from Major Sweets’ candy company have turned children into crazed killers. This Halloween’s all trick, no treat and total mayhem.


Ghoulish! A Halloween Tale – On a Halloween night, a ghost story becomes reality as you go beyond the grave in a spectacularly spooky show on Universal Studios’ lagoon.

Halloween Nightmare Fuel Wildfire – The show that sparked a firestorm last year is ablaze with a new nightmare. The pyro and aerial performers are back to reignite your fears.
