Universal Orlando has announced further details of admission prices for the 2010 Halloween Horror Nights events, with advance tickets now on sale.

There are a bewildering array of ticket options on offer for the twentieth Halloween Horror Nights, which will take place on September 24-25 and 30, October 1-3, 7-10, 14-17, 20-24 and 27-31. A summary of the different deals available is given below - please note that Universal has not yet released prices for every available ticket type, but will do so soon at www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.

The Horror Nights see Universal dressing up areas of the park as haunted houses and "scare zones". Fans of the House of Horrors attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood will know what to expect, with real actors mingled in with the guests to create genuinely unpredictable scares.

Basic ticket options

  • General admission - allows entry to Halloween Horror Nights for one admission on a pre-selected date, from 6.30pm onwards. Does not include entrance to the Universal Orlando parks during the day. Price: $74.99
  • Stay and Scream - an upgrade to a daytime ticket for Universal Studios Florida or Islands of Adventure that adds admission to a Halloween Horror Nights event. Price (upgrade only): $39.99 (Sundays-Thursdays), $49.99 (Fridays), $64.99 (Saturdays)

Frequent Fear Passes

For those looking to attend multiple Halloween Horror Nights events, Frequent Fear Passes offer a good deal. There are two options available, the cheapest of which is priced the same as a single-night ticket:

  • Frequent Fear Pass - enables entry to every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday event plus the first weekend - September 24, 25, 30, October 3, 7, 10, 14, 17, 20, 21, 24, 27, 28 and 31. Price: $74.99

Halloween Horror Nights Express

Universal's Halloween Horror Nights Express passes allow guests to skip the regular lines at all haunted houses and other major attractions.

The price of the pass depends on the day it is purchased for, and a limited number are available for each event:

Frequent Fear Pass with Express Access

Universal plans to offer combined Frequent Fear Pass/Express Plus tickets, which will enable guests to bypass the regular lines at haunted houses and major attractions on every night of their Frequent Fear Pass. The company is yet to release pricing details for the combined tickets:
