RUMOR: Universal Orlando to Roll Out a ‘Mini’ Version Halloween Horror Nights This Year?


While Universal Orlando’s announcement of the cancellation of Halloween Horror Nights this year came as a blow to many theme park fans, there might be a chance we’ll see a little bit of it soon.

By little, we mean “mini”

The Official HHN Twitter account reactivated a few weeks ago, leading many fans to speculate that something was about to happen.

According to the HHN Unofficial blog, Universal may now be considering a bite sized version of the beloved Halloween event.

Universal Team Members have just been told that weekends are now blocked-out for comp passes. Is Universal expecting a big upturn in attendance in the coming weeks…?

What with the news we heard last week of Universal Orlando extending the operating houses of the Studios park and various Scareactors supposedly being called back, it would look like a very mini version of HHN is going to be undertaken, possibly as early as this weekend!

While nothing official has been announced, entrance rigs have been spotted in the park, and there’s a recent approval for two houses by the City or Orlando.

So what would a ‘mini’ Halloween Horror Nights look like, and what would the two mystery houses be? While nothing has been confirmed, it’s an interesting move by Universal if it turns out to be true.

Stay tuned to P&P for more news on Halloween Horror Nights 2020 (?) as it is made available!
