Universal Orlando announced the dates of Halloween Horror Nights eight months in advance and promised new content for the 27th year of the panic festival.

The fall freak show will stretch to a record-breaking 34 nights from September 15 through November 4.

The theme park has created new haunted houses based on iconic horror films, terrifying TV shows and haunting stories. And following tradition, special zones will be scattered throughout the park filled with  “scareactors,” who stalk guests that pay big money to be frightened.

The early announcement is part of a ploy to book hotel rooms and packages. Universal is offering vacation packages that combines Halloween Horror Nights with the Universal’s three theme parks: Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay, which opens May 25. The three-day packages start at $225 for adults.
