Universal Studios offers Halloween Horror Night Tours as Extras

If touring the various houses and mazes at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights isn’t enough, UO is now offering special tours that either let you jump the lines and/or take you behind the scenes.


There are four tours, and they are an additional cost beyond your regular HHNXXII admission.

Private RIP Tours:

  • You and up to 9 guests will participate in a guided walking tour that will include front-of-line access to all of the haunted houses and select attractions in the park. It also includes valet parking, RIP lounge access, reserved seating for “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure,” plus coffee and bottled water at the end of the tour.

Price: Between $1,500 and $1,800 per group, depending on the night.

Non-Private RIP Tours:

  • If you don’t have a huge group, you can still get in on a tour. You and your party will be mixed with other non-private groupings, capping out at 12 people per tour. Non-privates only get two regular attractions thrown in, and the tour ends when your tour group has been to “Bill and Ted,” every house, and the two chosen regular attractions. This tour will last between 2-4 hours.

Price: Between $150 and $175 per person, depending on the night.
