Universal Orlando has gone all out for this year’s Mardi Gras Event, even opening the first “Tribute Store.”
This “Tribute Store” features an “immersive environment” and special commemorative event merchandise, plus it looks incredible!
Take a look!
Attractions Magazine has posted a walk-through video:
Of course there are beads and masks! It’s Mardi Gras!

You got your @horrornightsorl in my Mardi Gras. You got your Mardi Gras in my Halloween Horror Nights. To great tastes that go great together. As a bit of a surprise, the Universal Mardi Gras 25th anniversary Tribute Store, located in the same spot as the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store (former Revenge of the Mummy extended queue), opened up today and it’s something else. It’s definitely got that old Orleans feel, while being both subdued and incredibly creepy. It doesn’t reflect the party atmosphere of Mardi Gras, but it works really well in creating a mood and it’s extremely impressive. It’s like the revelers took a wrong turn in their partying and went to a bad part of the bayou. It also made me think, would a maze like Dead Waters (HHN 27 2017) fit as a couple month added attraction for Mardi Gras. That’d be an interesting addition beyond the food, parade and weekend concerts. #universalorlando #universalorlandoresort #tributestore #universalmardigras #universalstudiosflorida #hhn
