Haunted Houses Edit
- American Horror Story: Volume 2 (Soundstage 21): Experience three horrifying stories in one disturbing house as a deranged cast of characters seek not only your life, but your soul.
- The Shining (Soundstage 22): The visually intense psychological thriller is now the most terrifying haunted experience imaginable.
- Ash Vs. Evil Dead (Parade Warehouse): You'll howl with terror and laughter as you witness Ash battle demons and deadites armed with his fueled chainsaw.
- SAW: The Games of Jigsaw (Shrek Theater): The traps are set. All that’s missing is you. The Jigsaw killer has returned to torment you with his twisted take on poetic justice.
- The Horrors of Blumhouse (MIB Tent): From the minds behind Insidious, Sinister & the Purge comes to the Horrors of Blumhouse.
- Dead Waters (Soundstage 24): Enter a pestilent swamp that oozes evil, the hellish realm of the Voodoo Queen. If you fail to escape, you’re in for a gut-wrenching sacrifice.
- The Fallen (Soundstage 24): You’re about to be caught in the crossfire of the eternal war of light versus dark. No one will be safe.
- Hive (Sprung Tent 2): The crumbling house on 19 Hemingway Lane harbors a nest of bloodthirsty vampires. If you awaken them, you will face a savage, bestial hunger.
- Scarecrow: The Reaping (Sprung Tent 1): At a long-sabandoned Depression-era farm, vengeance takes root, and the only harvest that will be reaped is you.
- Altars of Horror (Plaza of the Stars): Enter the nexus of evil, where all the most fearsome characters and nefarious creatures from each of the Halloween Horror Nights™ haunted houses lie in wait.
- Festival of the Deadliest (Hollywood): The dead are throwing a hell of a Hollywood party and you’re invited. Your spirit will fuel the frenzy of this ghoulish gathering.
- Invasion! (San Francisco): The year is 1955, and a UFO has crashed onto the wharf. Their goal: to conduct experiments upon you to prepare to invade Earth.
- The Purge (New York): The Purge has returned to Halloween Horror Nights™ and overrun New York. No one is safe. Be a part of a proud American tradition. United we purge.
- Trick 'r Treat (Central Park): Break the rules. Pay the price. That’s the murderous moral of the five twisted stories in Trick ‘r Treat, a darkly hilarious tribute to Halloween.
Roaming Horde Edit
- Clownsaws (Springfield U.S.A): Regardless of how many times they go to the “chainsaw clown” well, it works – and that’s mostly due to the right cast. It seems like the cast is enjoying the part, which translates into some great interactions and opportunities for some good scaring. It’s a bit of a downgrade from a numbers standpoint however. At last year’s event, we had 4 different groups. This year, it’s just the clowns.
- Bill & Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure (2017) (Fear Factor Stage): After 26 years of Excellent Halloween Adventures, Bill and Ted are bringing their Farewell Tour to Halloween Horror Nights.
- Academy of Villains: Afterlife (Mel's Drive-In Stage): Witness the intense and shocking dance performance of this world-class group of artists as you discover what happens after we leave this life.
