Work is ongoing across Universal Studios Florida for Halloween Horror Nights, including a space behind Fast and Furious — Supercharged. This year’s harrowing haunts are materializing swiftly, with a September 1 opening for HHN 23.
Halloween Horror Nights House Behind Fast & Furious Building
Not much in the realm of the terrifying or creepy is visible just yet, but a white tent can be seen directly behind this service gate at the Fast & Furious attraction. Last year, this same area was utilized for an iteration of The Horrors of Blumhouse house anthology, which was divided into sections for “Freaky” and “The Black Phone.”
Behind this particular gate, pipes and other construction materials can be seen around the tent area, possibly to support the structure or layout of the various scenes. Markings are also drawn on the pavement.
HHN 2023 at Universal Studios Florida
In February, Horror Night Nightmares released their first speculation map for HHN 32, with Chucky and Dracula making appearances, along with various originals and a marquee house based on the video game and major HBO Max series “The Last of Us.”
Chucky is currently the only house that has been confirmed. A frequent flier at HHN, Chucky hasn’t had his own house since 2009 (though he did have a scare zone at HHN 28). He’s made many appearances in between, including a photo op for the past two years.
Each speculation map released is based on current rumors and available information — all of these predictions are subject to change. Based on this current version, the tent behind Fast & Furious may be a Blumhouse excursion yet again, this time representing the films “M3GAN” and “Insidious.”
“Insidious” is an older production from 2011 about dark spirits possessing a family and placing their son in a demented coma. It’s a creation of James Wan, famous in the horror world for his leadership of the “Saw” and “Conjuring” franchises, as well as directing the “Aquaman” films based on the DC comics.
“M3GAN” is a brand-new film from the beginning of this year, produced by Wan and Jason Blum — CEO of Blumhouse Productions. Released to acclaim for its self-aware sense of humor to match its chills, the story revolves around an artificially intelligent doll that innocently befriends a grieving girl, before the extent of its autonomy and willingness to “protect” its user at any cost becomes realized.
Both films offer a potentially exciting opportunity for immersive, guest-focused dread.
Universal made their own official announcement for the event in March, releasing a teaser trailer on Twitter:
The specific dates for HHN 32 are now available, running select nights in September and October. These are the available days:
- September: 1-3, 6-10, 13-17, 20-24, & 27-30
- October: 1, 4-8, 11-15, 18-22, 25-29, & 31
Tickets are on sale now in the Universal Orlando Resort website. Regular admission rates vary by night, and range between $79.99 at the lowest, or $119.99 at the highest. Express Passes are available starting at $109.99 per person, with variable date-based pricing as well. The RIP Tour will also return, with prices starting at $299.99. Additionally, Unmasking the Horror Tours start at $119.99 for the 3-house tour and $169.99 for the 6-house tour.
All nights are relatively set in stone, but it is worth mentioning two nights were cancelled and then replaced last year due to the catastrophic impact of Hurricane Ian across Florida.
