Restricted Photography

Unmasking the Horror Tours caused a lot of rucus last year when it was revealed that Guests were at first allowed to take photos at anything they wanted, then nothing, later on the restriction being only in ‘select’ houses.  This caused a lot of debate in the HHN fan community and a little confusion from guests who wanted that illusive snap of them with Krampus!

This year however, Universal are advising guests on the popular behind-the-scenes tours that photography is going to be “restricted”.  We have heard that the tours will now only allow guests to use their cameras in houses that are deemed as ‘original’ and not containing any intellectual properties – just how this affects one house that’s supposed is a cancelled IP house – we’re not sure!

Despite this setback for us HHN purists, the following information has been released for these tours:

GET A DAYTIME GLIMPSE BEHIND THE SCENES Daytime guests can shine a light on the darkness of Halloween Horror Nights™ with a Behind the Screams: Unmasking the Horror Tour™. On select days, get a chilling look into how Universal Orlando’s Art & Design team transforms the biggest names in horror into haunted houses on a lights-on VIP tour for up to 15 guests. Choose from the 2-2½ hour Morning Tour, or a 4-5 hour combination morning and afternoon tour. Enjoy exclusive VIP entrance to Universal Studios Florida™ with a guided walking tour of up to three houses per tour (six for the combination tour), a commemorative Halloween Horror Nights lanyard and the chance to photograph select houses. Reservations are required.

Due to the intensely graphic nature and lights-on viewing within the haunted houses, Unmasking the Horror Tours are not recommended for children under the age of 13.
