Seems like the best night to go is in a Sunday night since the lines and wait times to the haunted houses were relatively short. But I guess one downside to the park being less crowded is that the scare actors were easily detected so...More

Great day out especially if you have teenagers who are thrill seekers. They have upped their game and the park has been cleaned up since I last visited 5 years ago. I recommend to go early as, rightly so, they have a strict inclement weather...More

Great time to go as ride times were very low. Cheetah Hunt is always longer because how long the ride is (over 3 minutes) so be sure to get there earlier in the day when it’s only about 30 minutes. Great time for everyone without...More

If you love coasters (like us) then this is the park for you! Only approximately 1 hour from Orlando, straight road.

I am a dedicated Halloween Horror Nights fan; I've been going since 1995. For the first time, Universal team members had HHN block out dates, during the busiest times when I don't want to go anyway. This was the perfect time to pay a visit...More
