The songs that move you. The faith that fills you. It all comes together in one weekend – Rock the Universe, September 1Oth and 11th, where the biggest names in Christian rock take the stage at Universal Studios.

Join thousands of other believers for a weekend of soul-stirring music right next to the action-packed thrills of the number one movie and TV based theme park in the world.

Over a dozen of contemporary Christian music’s top acts come together for a   festival of rock, music and ministry.

Guests with Rock the Universe tickets can enter Universal Studios® after 4pm. The park closes for non-Rock the Universe guests at 6pm. A Rock the Universe ticket will allow you to remain in the park until 1am to experience all the music and thrills. 




Select Nights – Sept 24. – Oct. 31 2010
Tickets $74.99 Buy tickets HERE 
Step inside living cinematic terror at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights as the most demented films of all time come to life. Torn from their upcoming films, The Wolfman and Saw join with Chucky to descend upon you, with a host of terrifying horrors close behind.

On select nights in September and October,  the theme park is transformed into the nation’s premier Halloween event. Venture into a nightmarish maze of horrid Haunted Houses, lurid Live Shows, and shocking Scare Zones while an army of mutants, monsters and maniacs roam the darkened studio streets.

Now in its 20th year, Halloween Horror Nights annually draws hundreds of thousands of horror fans from around the globe to this one-of-a-kind event. It’s the greatest exhibition of pure terror ever unleashed anywhere, and you can experience it all, LIVE, only at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.

After the daytime guests depart, the park is turned into an elaborately themed bacchanalia of the bizarre, featuring famous Hollywood monsters alongside original horrors from the fiendish minds of Universal’s fearmasters.

This is a separately ticketed event. This means, of course, that you must purchase a separate admission ticket to Halloween Horror Nights on top of any other ticket you possess to gain admission during “regular operating hours”.

There is increased security during this event. Please be aware of the following measures: Current information states that there are, “No Masks or Costumes allowed.” This is not Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. The purpose of this regulation is to ensure that there is no confusion between who is a costumed ScareActor and who is a park guest.
