Daytime Haunted Houses and Other Halloween Experiences Announced for Universal Orlando

Events Coverage / Theme Park News

After a successful test last weekend, Universal Orlando has officially announced more dates for their Halloween experiences. Two haunted houses, specialty food & beverage offerings, costumes allowed, trick or treating for kids, and more will be available on select days between now and November 1st.

These Halloween seasonal experiences and more will be included with your regular theme park admission and will begin the weekend of September 26th and 27th, and then run daily from October 3rd through November 1st. See below for more details on each of these offerings, including the two haunted houses.

Two Haunted Houses to Experience During the Day

Developed by the twisted minds of Universal Orlando, guests can scream their way through two all-new haunted houses where terrifying creatures await to haunt their every move. Both of the houses are located inside of Universal Studios Florida.

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.

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 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.

Access to the two haunted houses will be included with your theme park admission. There may be times when the Virtual Line experience is available for the haunted houses. Guests can use the Official Universal Orlando Resort App to select a Virtual Line time to visit. Haunted houses may be too intense for young children and are not recommended for guests under 13.

Universal Orlando continues to implement its enhanced health and safety procedures and guidelines focused on “screening, spacing and sanitization,” and those practices will be applied to all experiences taking place this fall. Specific health and safety protocols for the haunted houses include:

  • Face coverings worn by team members – including scareactors – and guests.
  • Everyone following social distancing guidelines in the queue and inside the haunted houses.
  • Plexi-glass will be installed in various areas to help keep separation between scareactors and guests.
  • The required use of hand sanitizer before entering each haunted house. It will also be available for guests to use immediately after they exit.
  • Managing the guest flow inside the haunted houses by pulsing travel parties and limiting capacity.

Costumes Allowed (And Encouraged!)

Guests can share their Halloween spirit and don family-friendly costumes while visiting Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Click here for complete costume guidelines.

Trick-or-Treating at Islands of Adventure

Children can get into the Halloween spirit with Trick-or-Treating all weekend at Islands of Adventure. This is available to all kids 12 and younger. Kids will be able to pick up a bag and go from store to store around the park to collect treats! Look for the retail locations marked by pumpkin signage.See more details at the official website.

Scarecrow Stalk in Universal Studios Florida

Visitors can participate in the Universal Orlando Scarecrow Stalk, a new scavenger hunt that sends guests to find unique scarecrows and collect stamps at 13 retail locations throughout the park. A Halloween treat awaits those who successfully complete the stalk.
