Universal Orlando has confirmed that their Halloween Activities at the Resort, including the operation of 2 haunted houses, will continue to operate on select dates, Sept 26 & 27, and daily from October 3 to November 1.
Universal recently conducted a “Testing” weekend for the activities, which we found to be a huge success (and it would seem they felt the same way, too). No official event name has been given, but Universal is encouraging fans to use #TeamHalloween on social media.
The Halloween fun will feature 2 haunted houses; Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy – and is included with daytime admission. Safety guidelines are in place for the haunted houses, with social distancing guidelines enforced in the queues and in the houses. Plexi-glass will also be installed in various areas to keep separation from the scare actors. The Virtual Queue system will also be in use.
In addition, guests can take part in the Scarecrow Stalk, which is a treasure hunt activity throughout Universal Studios Florida. Guests must located 13 different scarecrows and skeletons throughout the park and collect stamps to receive a free candy sampler bag.
Trick-or-Treating at Universal’s Islands of Adventure will also continue. Guests under 12 can grab a free trick-or-treat bag and go door-to-door, collecting tasty treats from participating retail stores this weekend. Keep a lookout for pumpkin stickers marking each location.
Specialty food and drink will also be available, including the new Skeleton Bar.
Guests are also encouraged to come dressed in costumes around the Resort. Make sure to check out the guidelines to see which costumes are allowed.
It should be noted that this event is no Halloween Horror Nights. That event, which would’ve celebrated its 30th anniversary, was canceled earlier this year due to the ongoing pandemic.
