Halloween is one of the most celebrated and popular holidays of the year. People everywhere search for some of the best scary attractions and events going on in their area. Luckily for people who live near the University of Central Florida, there is a long list of options to choose from, and who says you need to pick just a few? If you are a true Halloween enthusiast, you might try to do them all!

If you live in student apartments in Orlando, chances are that you'll even round up a whole group of friends and other students you met through roommate matching in your apartment near UCF to keep you company.

Halloween Horror Nights

This annual event is Universal Orlando's most frightening jump-scare experience in all of Florida. With new and thrilling haunted houses every year, you could come back and still have a different experience every time. Universal tends to draw inspiration for houses from its many classic horror films and monsters, including famous Hollywood horror films. If rides are working on the evening that you go, you can even ride universal rides with the monsters walking around the park. Of course, entry to the theme park to go on the rollercoasters is separate from admission to Halloween Horror attractions. They include bundles for both if that is what you want to do.

Howl O Scream Orlando

This event taking place at SeaWorld in Orlando is home to many creatures and I'm not talking about aquatic animals. With scare zones, Halloween-themed shows, and houses to go through, this attraction is more versatile for any age group, including college students! It's also less expensive than Halloween Horror Nights, making it a little easier to visit on a tight budget. If you live in one of the best apartments in Orlando, you are probably less than a 15-minute drive to this terrifying attraction.

A Petrified Forest Scare Trail

At this smaller attraction, multiple trails in the area are decorated and scary monsters are lurking in the shadows to jump out and terrify you. This kind of event is perfect for big groups of people to attend near UCF apartments. The great thing is there are not just thrills and scares available near the trail. They also have local vendors and food trucks waiting to serve up tasty snacks after all the scaring is done.

American Ghost Adventures

If you are a believer in ghosts or have never been on a ghost hunt before, this place will guarantee to provide an exciting new experience for you! This business is locally owned and has multiple options for touring, whether you want the shorter 2-hour option, or the 4-hour "Ultimate" tour, which includes a gift bag and pictures of the tour to take home after you leave.
