It is worth noting you don't need a day ticket to experience this event, and many of the park attractions are open.
The Frequent Fear pass is therefore very good value.
Another option available is the RIP tour. The queues can be quite lengthy for the houses, even with the front of line passes. If it suits your budget, and you want to see everything, the RIP tour ticket is worth considering.
You get immediate access with a tour guide into all the houses, access to the VIP bar and depending on the current schedule you may get some behind the scenes access - we saw the MIB area in 2014.
Front of Line pass is included too, so if you book an early tour you get that value added as well.
Scareactor Dining Experience
The event takes place each night at the "Monsters Cafe" and includes a dinner buffet for guests, as well as photo opportunities with the 'Scareactors' and one free download of a photo during the experience!
Seating times are available at 5pm and 7pm.
Tickets cost $49.99 and can be purchased at Universal Studios or by calling 407-224-7840.
