Halloween Horror Nights should currently be in full swing, but this year’s fan-favorite event isn’t happening due to COVID-19. However, there are still some exciting new ways to celebrate Halloween at Universal Orlando this year
Two of the ten haunted houses in this year’s Halloween Horror Nights lineup will be open at Universal Studios. Park guests can explore “Revenge of the Tooth Fairy” and “Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives” during the day.
Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives
The story behind the Universal Monsters haunted house picks up where the 1935 film ends. After rejecting him, the Bride of Frankenstein had a change of heart. She’s stepping out to bring Frankenstein’s Monster back, and she will stop at nothing to find her mate. People should enter this house at their own risk, she sharpens her wits by experimenting on unsuspecting guests…
Revenge of the Tooth Fairy
The legend of the tooth fairy turns dark in this original haunted house. Children must give up their baby teeth to a gruesome tooth fairy or pay a serious price. The haunted manor is overrun with clawed goblins who live by the motto “Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth”.
HHN Tribute Store
Although the annual event isn’t happening this year, the spirit lives on in the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store. Retro merchandise and other event items are available for purchase in the tribute store. The store features four incredible decorated rooms with themes like Frankenstein’s Lab and Jack the Clown’s Carnival.
Scarecrow Stalk is a new scavenger hunt that sends guests through Universal Studios to find unique scarecrows. If you collect stamps at all 13 retail locations, you’ll win a Halloween treat!
