Halloween Horror Nights 2023 at Universal Studios Hollywood
Horror Night Nightmares released its most recent speculation map in late April, indicating some of the potential houses guests could see later this year. We have a full overview of the map available here.
Speculations does mean speculation, and it’s important to note that while these maps are made with effort and collaboration, Universal has no involvement with these rumors — it’s merely an educated guess amongst dedicated fans. Until announcements are made by Universal Studios Hollywood, everything here is subject to change, made apparent by how different this current map is from the first one we saw at the beginning of March.
Nothing is official or confirmed thus far, aside from Chucky. While he is a familiar face around HHN, Chucky hasn’t had his own house since 2009, giving “Child’s Play” fans over a decade to build up anticipation. He has made many other appearances in between, including throughout scare zones, Terror Trams, and photo ops.
The aforementioned Terror Tram is also an annually recurring overlay expected to return. Last year featured scenes inspired by Jordan Peele’s “Nope” and “Us.”
Are you interested in this opportunity? Do you know anyone interested? Tell us in the comments if you’ve ever dreamed of getting involved with HHN, or if you’ve had the chance to participate in the past.
