Halloween Horror Nights hype season has begun and now we have to anxiously wait around till the complete line-up is announced. If you are a regular to the event, then you may have noticed a few similarities the last few years when it comes to the dates that houses have been announced. If not, do not worry I’m going to compare and contrast the house announcement dates from the last three years and see if we can come up with a descent list of expected announcement dates.

Let’s Look for a pattern
Looking at the previous announcements dates, it becomes apparent that Universal likes to make announcements during the time frame of May 16th – May 21st. Furthermore, this is the next available block of dates we are able to chose from. Another pattern is that Universal has announced multiple houses on June 7th.
What has been announced for HHN 30
|Puppet Theater: Captive Audience||Friday, October 23, 2020|
|Beetlejuice||Friday, March 5, 2021|
So, all the announcements this year have been on Fridays. Let’s assume Universal keeps this pattern of announcing on Fridays and we use the previously noticed patterns to predict the announcement schedule.
