This year, Universal Studios cancelled its infamous “Halloween Horror Nights” in response to new health and safety measures. Shortly after, the Studios announced that they would instead be hosing “Haunted House Weekends” during October.

The houses will include the maze “Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives” and “Revenge of the Tooth Fairy.” As usual, there will also be scare zones, shows, and other Halloween-themed activities. The haunted houses are the main attraction of the event.

According to the Orlando Informer, these haunted houses “are best described as ‘movie-set quality’ recreations of fantastic and fearsome locations. Sometimes referred to as mazes, each house is indoors, often set up in the unused queue area of a daytime attraction or one of the Universal soundstages.

“These haunts rely on every effect you can imagine to scare the pants off you—including hideous creatures, blood-curdling sound effects, loud music, tight passages, strobe lights, air bursts, mirror effects, and, of course, very elaborate—and, in many cases, very gruesome—props and set decoration.”

Guests will be sent into the haunted houses in small groups in accordance with the latest Covid-19 rules.
