All of the haunted houses featured at this year's event were sequels or were tied to previous HHN events via a storyline. Two HHN icons were featured in direct "sequel" icon houses. These houses included The Caretaker's "Screamhouse" and The Director's "All Nite Die-In." Jack and the Storyteller were tied into other houses from the past in unique ways. Jack was "committed" into the Shady Brook Asylum (Psychoscareapy), and the Storyteller became the new owner of a roadside attraction titled the "Dungeon of Terror."

Even though this year's event was moved back to Universal Studios, Marvel Super Hero Island was opened on Friday and Saturday nights to help with crowd dispersal. The Incredible Hulk Coaster, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, and Doctor Doom's FearFall operated on these nights.
