Universal Halloween Horror Nights 2020 Canceled

Universal Studios theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood both made the unfortunate but unsurprising announcement today that the annual Halloween Horror Nights has been canceled for 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

An official statement from the parks reads: “Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood have made the difficult decision to not hold Halloween Horror Nights events this year. Universal Orlando Resort will be focusing exclusively on operating its theme parks for daytime guests, using the enhanced health and safety procedures already in place. Universal Studios Hollywood continues to face ongoing business restrictions and uncertainty around its opening timeframe.

We know this decision will disappoint our fans and guests. We are disappointed, too. But we look forward to creating an amazing event in 2021.”
