Halloween has invaded Universal Studios Orlando.
The destination theme park has launched a series of seasonal Halloween events including two brand-new haunted houses. Starting September 26 and September 27 and then every day from October 3 to November 1, guests can celebrate the thrills and chills of Halloween with family-friendly Halloween costumes, trick-or-treating in Island Adventures, and so much more!
Headlining Universal Orlando’s Halloween events will be two frightfully-fun haunted houses: Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy. In Bride of Frankenstein, guests will have a one of a kind experience as one of the most notorious monsters in monster movie history steps out of hiding and will stop at nothing to bring back Frankenstein’s Monster. In Revenge of the Tooth Fairy, guests will find themselves lost in an original and terrifying story that reveals the dark truth behind the beloved childhood ritual.
The haunted houses are included with park admission, with the virtual line experience available at certain times. Due to the intensity of the haunted houses, this experience is not suitable for ages 13 and younger.
If you are interested in more kid-friendly events, have no fear! Kids 12 and under will be able to Trick-Or-Treat in Island Adventure where they will have an opportunity to collect their favorite candies at various retail stores. Each participating store will be marked with an orange pumpkin sign, making candy hunting fun and easy.
This year, guests can participate in a brand-new scavenger hunt. The Scarecrow Stalk will take guests on a search for various scarecrows scattered around the park. Once all the scarecrows are found, guests will be rewarded with a special Halloween treat.
Do not forget to check out all the other additional Halloween treats the park has to offer. Stop by the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store. Dedicated to the premier Halloween event, guests can purchase throwback merchandise and sink their teeth into a variety of 20 different kinds of sweet and savory items. Guests can also enjoy seasonally offered food and beverage options including a Frozen Candy Corn beverage at the new Skelton Bar at Café La Bamba and the ever-popular Pizza Fries located at Louie’s Italian Restaurant. There will also be new food trucks available outside of the haunted houses with Halloween themed items like Franken Fried Chicken and Funnel Brains. In Universal Citywalk, guests can take a trip to Voodoo Doughnuts to try their specialty treats like the Jack Clown and Pumpkin Spice doughnuts. Guests can also try different themed drinks set around figures of Halloween Horror Nights, which is found at Universal Orlando hotels. Drinks include The Director and The Chance.
Last but not least, guests can start or end their day at the Universal Cinemark at CityWalk where they can catch a classic horror film.
Universal Orlando is implementing new health and safety measures to ensure a safe and more enjoyable environment for guests and park employees. The park asks that everyone follows social distancing guidelines and wears a face covering while inside the park. Both haunted houses will allow limited capacity. Certain areas will have plexiglass to protect guests and scare actors, and hand sanitizer will be required before entering and exiting each haunted house.
