Hurricane Matthew may have caused ##Halloween Horror Nights at #Universal Studios Florida to skip a beat this year, but Universal Orlando Resort is making up for the storm-related closures by extending the event to November 4 and 5. It was originally scheduled to close on October 31, but guests can now buy tickets for the Friday and/or Saturday after the holiday to extend the terror into another month.

Ticket prices start at $59,99 for Friday, November 4, and $66.99 for Saturday, November 5, while guests with Frequent Fear passes can attend on Friday and those with Frequent Fear Plus get admittance on both nights. You can add Express access for an addition charge that all but ensures you'll get to see all that the event has to offer, even if it's packed.

You can purchase your tickets in advance on the official website. The extension means that Universal Studios Florida will close to day guests at 5 p.m. on those two nights, but if you have tickets for the park as well as Halloween Horror Nights, you can stay in the park after closing time. You'll wait in a holding area and get a jump on the haunted houses once the event starts because you'll be inside ahead of the crowd waiting at the front gates.

Halloween Horror Nights has nine haunted houses this year, as well as two shows, plenty of scare zones and an extra-cost virtual reality experience. It draws massive crowds of haunt fans to Universal Studios Florida every year to experience haunted mazes with exquisite set design combined with non-stop scares. Many of the houses are based on intellectual properties like "The Walking Dead" and "The Exorcist," giving fans the feeling that they're stepped right into a TV show or movie.

In addition to the extra nights, Halloween Horror Nights runs nightly October 26 through 31 at Universal Studios Florida as part of its regular schedule. That means you can visit any night this week, starting on Wednesday, and even spend the holiday in the perfect place to be treated with tricks and scares. Then it's time to start thinking about Christmas, as the annual Universal Orlando Resort festivities will kick off on December 3, less than a month after Chance and her band of lunatics abandon the park.
