The much-missed Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) is back after a pandemic-induced two-year hiatus and it's all ready to celebrate its 10th edition with three haunted houses, two scare zones, a live show and special events like zombie laser tag and a behind-the-scenes Monsters & Manifestations experience.
