Twitter page Horror Night Nightmares recently shared the latest version of their famous speculation maps for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida — this is speculation map 3.5. Please note: these are only best guesses at this point, subject to change — as HHN approaches and more official announcements are made, details will become more concrete.
Halloween Horror Nights 32 Speculation Map 3.5
Here are the houses currently featured on the map:
- “Chucky” — Confirmed
- “The Exorcist”
- “Stranger Things 4” — Confirmed
- Blood Moon: Dark Offerings (original)
- Campground Kills (original)
- Dueling Dragons (original)
- Universal Studios Monsters: Paris
- “The Last of Us” — Confirmed
- Darkest Deal (original)
- Dr. Oddfellow’s Carnival of Thrills
What was previously only marked on the map with an image of trees and claw marks is now called “Campground Kills,” while another house with a pentagram hovering over a village now bears the name “Blood Moon and Dark Offerings.” The image of a devil guitar is being referred to as “Darkest Deal.”
Aside from those developments, the rumored Dragons house has been updated to “Dueling Dragons,” as speculation continues to grow that this space will be based on the old roller coaster once occupying the area now home to Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
This is the current list of scare zones:
- Vamp ’69
- Siren Shipyard
- Death Eaters
- M3GAN Horde
- Dark Zodiac
- Carnival of ODDities
Massive set pieces with “Music Fest ’69” have gone up in the New York area of Universal Studios Florida, indicating “Vamp ’69” is essentially confirmed, though there may be slight variations in its official name. This is somewhat of a recurring theme we’ve seen for HHN before, with “Vamp ’55” being featured during Halloween Horror Nights 26 and “Vamp ’85” at Halloween Horror Nights 28. ’55 was in the Hollywood area of the park, though ’85 was also in New York.
The Central Park area is also beginning to welcome its scare zone, currently labeled as “Jungle” on the speculation map. The stone-looking structures could definitely be temple ruins in a jungle environment, though there are no official details yet.
Death Eaters will appear in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley for the first time. Sets are already being prepared for their arrival.
Nightmare Fuel is still on the map as an anticipated show, but a show featuring vampires has been removed.
“Stranger Things” was featured in houses and mazes at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood in 2018 and 2019. This new “Stranger Things” house, inspired by season four, will feature recurring favorites as well as new characters — including Eddie Munson and villain Vecna.
As one of them is explaining a conspiracy theory, a strange symbol appears on screen and the room goes dark. Infected stalk through the shadows toward the girl before she suddenly returns to reality.
A frequent flier at HHN, Chucky hasn’t had his own house in Florida 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.
“The Exorcist” haunted mazes appeared at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2016 and 2021. A haunted house was part of Halloween Horror Nights 26 at Universal Studios Florida. The rumored house has lost its “Believer” tag, yet still persists on speculation maps.
Universal Studios Monsters: Paris
There have been many houses featuring the Universal Studios Monsters throughout the past three decades, and given their place in the hallows-eve halls of horror, their inclusion is not a surprise. This also follows the trend of the past few years. We had Universal Monsters in 2019, Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein in 2020 & 2021, and Universal Monsters: Legends Collide in 2022. A Parisian Monsters house could feature the Phantom of the Opera.
Dr. Oddfellow’s Carnival of Thrills
In the last speculation map, the symbol for a possible house featuring Dr. Oddfellow appeared, including an “O” and “C,” for Oddfellow’s Carnival. This latest map is the first to display a full title: Dr. Oddfellow’s Carnival of Thrills, which could mean a return for fan-favorite Jack.
Jack has become one of the most well-known icons of HHN, first introduced in 2000 as the icon of Halloween Horror Nights X. His full name is Jack Schmidt, and he once worked for Oddfellow at his carnival. The pair are mutual nemeses.
This year’s event runs on select nights from September 1 – November 4 and will feature 10 houses, 5 scare zones, and live entertainment. Admission is separate from regular theme park admission. You do not need theme park admission to attend Halloween Horror Nights, but if you have a day ticket, it allows you to stay in the park to wait rather than exit and re-enter when the event opens.
Multi-day passes, single-night tickets, and R.I.P. and behind the “screams” tours are available for booking.
