Daytime Haunted Houses And More Halloween Festivities Are Coming To Universal Orlando
We’ve got some good news for all you Halloween fans! As we reported last week here at UniversalParksBlog, Universal Orlando began testing Halloween experiences last week. Among the offerings were two daytime haunted houses, trick-or-treating, themed eats and treats and more. Today, we’re delighted to let readers know that as a result of the testing they will be offering special daytime halloween activities on September 26th and 27th and then again DAILY beginning October 3 and running through November 1, 2020.
Among the highlights of this year’s festivities will be two daytime haunted houses Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and The Bride of Frankenstein! In addition, we’ve outlined below some of the other spooky seasonal activities to be on the lookout for so pack those costumes, bring your appetites and your courage and let’s celebrate Halloween!
Included with your daytime admission to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure are two heart-pounding haunted houses in Universal Studios—Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy—so you can get your scream on. However, before we take a closer look at each, mom’s and dad’s should know that the haunted houses can be an INTENSE experience and aren’t recommended for those under the age of 13.
Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives
“We belong dead.” These were 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 craft by experimenting on unsuspecting victims. This mate will have her monster. And the monster his mate.
Revenge of the Tooth Fairy
Yikes! The innocent traditions of the tooth fairy hide a darker ritual in this year’s themed haunted house. . All children must give up their baby teeth to the goblinesque tooth fairies or 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.
Guests should note that for both of the offerings above, The Virtual Line Experience will be used. When on property simply use the official Universal Orlando Resort app to pick a return time for your group!
Costumes Optional—But Totally Encouraged
During the Halloween festivities visitors are encouraged to dress the part! You can get in the sinister spirit by donning your favorite costumes whether it be something from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Marvel or more! However, there are some rules to follow: Costume Guidelines can be found here.
Trick-or-Treating at Universal’s Islands of Adventure
It wouldn’t be Halloween without some candy! Visitors can grab your FREE trick-or-treat bag for your tiny tots and go door-to-door at participating retail stores to stock up on some Halloween goodies. Be on the lookout for pumpkin stickers that mark each location where candy is being handed out. Also it’s worth noting that the trick-or-treating experience at Universal is limited to guests 12 years of age and younger. Kids MUST be with an adult to participate.
