Special Unlock Tips for Halloween Horror Nights
If you want to see all the haunted houses, but don’t want to wait over two hours on a crowded night to see each one? Unlock Orlando’s advice is to get to the park and be ready to enter as soon as they open. If you hustle, you should be able to see every house within 2 hours, especially if it’s not a Friday or Saturday night. If money is no object and you want to go on a bunch of rides and haunted houses, the express passes are totally worth it, especially if you don’t want to wait in a 2-hour line for a haunted house. Have a seat in the scare zones for twenty minutes and watch those walking by get their pants scared off by demons and freaks hiding behind them in the fog. It’s extremely entertaining as a bystander to watch, almost as entertaining as the haunted houses.
