It turns out the rumors that we reported were in fact true. The Beetlejuice house opened today and will be running again tomorrow at Universal Studios Orlando.
Hi! It is scheduled to open from 10a – 6p on Saturday, October 31 and Sunday, November 1. Please note that hours are subject to change, and availability may be limited as we continue to manage attendance in our parks. Guests should check our Mobile App for the latest information.

According to Universal Orlando the house will be open 10AM-6PM today and tomorrow. I keep hoping they go longer like they did for Stranger Things, but they might not if they are going to use it for 2021.
The word is they had to open it for at least a couple of days to keep the IP for next year, but Universal will not confirm that is the case.
Now matter what happened people are not happy, especially Annual Passholders who got emails saying that due to the large crowds that were expected they might not want to come this weekend.

Thanks for the heads up about the Beetlejuice house this weekend 😒 especially with that nice email saying AP shouldn’t come during the weekend. Real Classy. Have a Happy Halloween because I’m gonna be at work all weekend. 😒

I will never forgive you @UniversalORL for opening the beetlejuice house out of nowhere on the busiest weekend. I wanted to go through this house so bad and I can’t.

Honestly I’m pretty upset with @UniversalORL we had a trip planned for #HHN30 and then bc of Covid19 they decided to CANCEL everything. Now they have THREE houses open! Why say you’re canceling and then decide not to? #uoap

Way to screw over everyone else, like your loyal passholders. Then again we’ve been getting screwed for months.

A super crappy thing for @UniversalORL to tell passholders to come on weekdays because “crowds on weekends” then open the house I’ve been waiting for.

Brb, taking my annual pass with me to sob in the shower. How are you going to ask passholders to stay away to allow others to enjoy the parks and then when we listen…. The only house I wanted and I can’t even be there for it, Thanks @HorrorNightsORL @UniversalORL

I swear if @UniversalORL doesn’t say the beetlejuice house is just a preview for next year I will lose it. Because I CANT GO. because I HAVE TO WORK. Because I DIDNT KNOW IN ADVANCE. I’m honestly so upset. Beetlejuice is my life.

Hopefully it will be opened next year. My daughter is a huge ‘Beetlejuice’ fan. She loves the movie, the animated series, the musical. Her birthday was Beetlejuice themed. She was really looking forward to the Beetlejuice house, so much so that we made a trip down, during a pandemic, just so she could go to the Tribute Store and see that Beetlejuice room. She would absolutely flip over a HHN house.
