To have the perfect spooky evening you might want to go into the park a little early to get a head start.

Usually Universal Studios Florida shuts its doors to regular park guests early but allows day guests who have HHN tickets to stay and wait for the event to begin.

These areas are known as Stay and Scream areas and allow guests to have a drink and get in line early for certain houses, dependent on where they wait in the park.

Stay and Scream is only open to guests who have valid admission the the park during the day and HHN that evening. If you don't have park tickets for during the day you will instead need to wait outside the park until it has been transformed. Which means everyone in the Stay and Scream areas will get a head start on you.
