The Florida attraction began a phased reopening in May with new safety protocols in place after closing in March
Though its annual Halloween Horror Nights are sidelined due to the pandemic, Universal Orlando is still finding ways to spook park-goers this fall.
On Tuesday, the Florida resort announced plans for seasonal festivities in time for Halloween, including two new haunted houses. The unveiling of the new attractions comes two months after the company confirmed that 2020 Horror Nights would officially be canceled at both Universal Studios Hollywood in California, which remains mostly closed, and Universal Orlando.
The new Halloween attractions begin the weekend of Sept. 26, then run daily between Saturday, Oct. 3, through Sunday, Nov. 1.
Included with admission, the pair of brand-new haunted houses — not recommended for those under 13 since they may “be too intense for young children” — are Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy. The latter of the two is described as an “original story that uncovers a dark ritual behind the innocent childhood tradition.”
Guests can also don “family-friendly” Halloween costumes in the park, with those 12 and under able to trick-or-treat throughout the Islands of Adventure park.
Special limited-time food and drink options will also be on offer, including all-new food trucks stationed at the haunted houses that feature themed items like a “Franken Fried Chicken & Funnel Brains.”
