Universal Orlando Resort Gearing Up for HHN 32

Universal has not made any official announcement in a few weeks after announcing another haunted house coming to HHN 32 this year, which will be The Last of Us, the video game, not the television series. An unofficial HHN 32 speculation map also got released last week, fueling rumors about what may be in store for this upcoming hauntingly fun event.

It’s been a slow year regarding any news from Universal on its most significant and scariest event of the year, Halloween Horror Nights. So far, only a couple of houses have been confirmed for this year as we have officially finished the 4th of July holiday, meaning Halloween is the on the way. We have a Chucky House coming this year, along with the announcement of The Last of Us getting a haunted house. The Last of Us haunted house will be themed after the video game of the same name and not the Max television show, confirmed Universal.

Besides these two houses, many rumors have been released slowly and periodically since the year began. Cindy Caine is expected to be the rumored icon for this year’s HHN. She was seen first at HHN in 2003 and has since then made several appearances over the years. Her first appearance was the “Screamhouse: Revisited” haunted house 2003. She then returned for the sequel house “Screamhouse: The Resurrection” in 2006. She then appeared in the following places:

  • Shadows from the Past (2009)
  • Fear Revealed (2010)
  • The Orphanage: Ashes to Ashes (2010)
  • Jack Presents: 25 Years of Monsters & Mayhem (2015)
  • ICONS: HHN (2015)
  • Welcome to SCarey: Horror in the Heartland (2021)

Other rumors about houses coming this year include Stranger Things 4Five Nights at Freddys, and a Lady Gaga-themed house. But again, these are all purely speculative, and Universal has not made any other official announcements on these houses yet. Universal did announce that its tagline for this year will be “See You In The Fog” and even released some early merchandise a few months back. HHN fans can now get ahead for the upcoming spooky season by purchasing items like candles, t-shirts, pants, hats, magnets, and mugs – all dawning the new tagline. New photos of some exciting things have surfaced around Universal Studios Park, pointing to scare zones and more being set up as we are 51 days away from opening night.
