HHN 23 The Walking Dead Zombies 400x200

Visit Orlando continues our 13 Weeks of Frightful Fun in Orlando with this week's ghostly good tips to help plan your Halloween fun in Orlando.

Yikes, Friday the 13th is upon us again. This ominous day has long been perceived to bring bad luck, particularly this year - 2013.  Have no fear (at least, not too much), and take note of these superstition survival suggestions:

  • Think positively all day - Choose good thoughts, be in a good mood and think about good outcomes. That's actually a good tip for every day.
  • Organize fun activities - Surround yourself with friends and family and do something fun together. Just use the day as an excuse to celebrate.
  • Forget those silly superstitions and take charge - So grab that broom, let that penny lie, walk under that ladder, step on that sidewalk crack, bring on that black cat and SMILE!

But there's no need to agonize over the unknown, especially because Visit Orlando has the full scoop about one of the most ghoulish, grisly gatherings of all: Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights 23.

Although eerie entertainment is woven throughout the entire park experience, Universal's haunted houses are the headlining attraction every year.  Gruesome creatures, dreadful sets and props, strobe lights, blood-curdling sound effects, tight pathways and blind corners make this the most popular Halloween event in the country.   

Here's this year's complete lineup of Universal Orlando's haunted houses.

The Cabin in the Woods - Universal's Entertainment team is partnering with LIONSGATE and film director and co-writer Drew Goddard to deliver a movie-quality haunted house experience that's authentic to the film and places guests in the middle of an ancient fight for survival.

Evil Dead - Halloween Horror Nights will conjure unrelenting evil in a elaborately themed haunted maze based on this year's box office hit, "Evil Dead." Universal is joining forces with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to deliver an authentic experience that will immerse horror fans in the blockbuster remake of the cult classic.

The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven - The eerily authentic and disturbingly real maze experiences will place guests at the heart of the show's once impenetrable prison, the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by hordes of flesh-eating walkers.

Urban Legends: La Llorona - Guests will come face to face with the 500-year old legend that has haunted millions of people in Latin America for generations, as the popular Mexican legend La Llorona comes to life.

Afterlife: Death's Vengeance - Witness the brutal vengeance of his victims as they turn his afterlife into an inescapable hell... 2000 volts of electricity are going to send serial killer, Bobby "The Blade" Galleta into a horrific realm of suffering in this new, original 3D haunted house.

Havoc 2: Derailed - WARNING: In this all-new original house the train convoy has derailed and the bloodthirsty maniacs are loose. Escaping them this time will be a hard feat...the "Dogs of War" return to HHN23 in this sequel house.

An American Werewolf in London - Based on the John Landis horror classic, An American Werewolf in London, you'll come face-to-face with the bloody chaos of werewolf attacks featuring all the iconic scenes from the film like the Slaughtered Lamb and the bloody chaos of Piccadilly Circus, you will learn to beware the moon.

Resident Evil: Escape from Raccoon City - Based on the popular video game series, guests will become desperate survivors inside Raccoon City and encounter vicious characters from the games such as Lickers, bloodthirsty zombies, packs of Cerberuses and even Nemesis himself.
