Halloween is coming to Universal

During September 19-20, 2020 Universal Studios Florida completed what they called a; “Halloween Seasonal Experience Testing” event. The park had two daytime haunted houses available to guests, that were going to be a part of the Halloween Horror Nights 30 line up. On July 24, 2020 Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood made the official decision to cancel Halloween Horror Nights in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic.

Bride of Frankenstein Lives and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy operated during the day with social distance lines and plexiglas between guests and scare actors. The event also included food trucks with frightful meals and a Scarecrow Stalk scavenger hunt at Universal Studios and trick-or-treating for kids at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Today, September 22, 2020 another announcement was made, “It’s not the Halloween season without Universal Orlando”. An update to the Universal Orlando website now shows that the houses will remain open, using the virtual line system, for visitors through Sept. 26-27 and Oct. 3-Nov. 1, 2020.

Universal is also now allowing costumes! In fact they are strongly encouraging it. You can find all the information on the haunted houses, new scarecrow stalk scavenger hunt, trick or treating, and the rules on costumes, plus more, here.
