The second theatre has been used as a location for an HHN house for years now. They remove the seats and build a temporary floor before building the house. The cancellation came way too late to not perform this work. It takes several weeks to tear out everything and return the theatre to normal. Unless the park decided to not use this location it’s almost not possible the theatre is in one piece and usable right now.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Perhaps I just looked at the wrong time at USJ and the line was short because it was on an alternate hour for Sesame Street 4D instead.

Went on a quick Universal lap today. Park was busier than expected but nothing like the reports from the weekend. 20-45min waits for most rides. Biggest I saw was 60min for the Potter Train.

I missed this news until I got an email about making a reservation today for it, unfortunately I'm not a local so I couldn't attend even if I wanted to but I'm curious to watch some videos and read reports about how they are. Anyone plan on going?...

You can still get your fright fix with daytime admission as we test a new experience this weekend, Sept. 19-20. And it’s included with your daytime admission to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. There are two heart-pounding haunted houses in Universal Studios—Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives—so you can get your scream on. You can take your kids trick-or-treating in Islands of Adventure. Plus, you can all dress in costumes throughout the resort to get in the sinister spirit of the season.

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.

The Virtual Line™ experience is available for the haunted houses. When you're on property, use The Official Universal Orlando Resort app to select a return time for your group.

It sold out reservation wise pretty fast today so I think it's safe to assume we'll see it a lot in the next month and a half, not even just on weekends! I'll wait till the hype and crowds have died down before checking the houses out.
