Universal Orlando has canceled Halloween Horror Nights for 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This year was going to be their 30th anniversary and it was expected to be the biggest and the best Halloween Horror Nights ever!
With that being said, Universal will be focusing on operating on the day guest as new health and safety measures have been implemented. Universal Studios Hollywood also have cancelled the event as well since they have not yet reopened their park yet.
Halloween Horror Nights is the latest large-scale theme park event to be affected by the ongoing pandemic. Last month, Walt Disney World cancelled Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party events.
I have been following Universal’s Halloween Horror Night since their sweet 16 and finally been able to start attending to HHN since HHN 26 and this is going to be one odd year without the Halloween Horror Night vibe. With other parks are thinking about having a modified version of their annual events, I hope Universal will follow suit. We will have to see what happen.
As you know that the theme parks shut down in mid-March in response to the pandemic. Universal just reopened with new measures, including mandatory face masks, temperature checks and social distancing protocols.
