Universal Parks and Resorts has announced that 2020’s Halloween Horror Nights event has been canceled at both Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood, with hopes to bring back the event in 2021.

Here’s the official statement:

Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort have made the difficult decision to not hold Halloween Horror Nights events this year. Universal Studios Hollywood continues to face ongoing business restrictions and uncertainty around its opening timeframe.  Universal Orlando Resort will be focusing exclusively on operating its theme parks for daytime guests, using the enhanced health and safety procedures already in place. 

We know this decision will disappoint our fans and guests.  We are disappointed, too.  But we look forward to creating an amazing event in 2021.

No information about this year’s event was ever released, but maze construction was taking place. It is also not known if what was planned for this year will return for next year – especially when it comes to intellectual property (I.P.) mazes. This year, Halloween Horror Nights at Orlando was celebrating 30 years and recently released event merchandise.
