It’s official! Universal Orlando Resort has confirmed that Halloween Horror Nights fans will have the chance to get their scare on, as two haunted houses will open to guests as a seasonal experience test on the 19th and 20th September.
Included with daytime admission to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, guests will have the chance to experience two haunted houses: Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein.
Descriptions for both houses can be found below:
Revenge of the Tooth Fairy
“The innocent traditions of the tooth fairy hide a darker ritual. All children must give up their baby teeth to the goblinesque tooth fairies or a pay a gruesome price. Step into an old manor that has been overrun by yellow-clawed fiends who extract teeth by force. It’s an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives
“We belong dead. The last words of Frankenstein’s monster on that fateful night when his Bride rejected him. But his end was her beginning. Now the Bride is stepping out of the shadows to bring him back. And there’s nothing she won’t do as she sharpens her brilliance by experimenting on unsuspecting victims. The mate will have her monster. And the monster his mate.”
Virtual line will be available for both houses mentioned above, meaning that guests can use Universal Orlando’s official app to select a return time to experience the haunted houses during the park’s normal park hours.
The haunted houses may be too intense for young children and aren’t recommended for those under the age of 13-years-old, so make you keep that in mind should you plan to experience them with your family.
The health and safety measures currently in place at Universal Orlando will also be applied to the above-mentioned houses including:
- Face masks aka coverings
- Social distancing protocols in the queue and haunted houses themselves
- Plexiglass will also be installed in various areas to keep separation from scare actors.
- The use of hand sanitiser will be required before entering each haunted house, and will be available upon exit.
- Managing guest flow in the haunted houses, and capacity will be limited
First to experience this seasonal test offering will be Team Members, there will be a special preview this Friday morning. Limited reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are required – there will be no standby queue. Team Members are limited to one time slot each.
Additionally, guests are encouraged to visit both Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure in their best Halloween costumes this weekend only. There will also be trick-or-treating at participating retail stores in Islands of Adventure for guests 12-years-old an younger – pumpkin stickers will mark each trick-or-treat location.
At this time, this seasonal experience is only being tested this weekend. Should it be successful, it is possible that we could see it return at a later date. Because Halloween Horror Nights was cancelled this year, it would appear this will be as close as HHN fans will get to the haunted experience they love and know.
