I mean, I guess we say this coming, but it still stings. Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights is cancelled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But just like the park says in their Facebook post: “this pain will be temporary. hhn is forever and will come again.”
In the accompanying statement on their Facebook page, it says: “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.”
According to the website, if you have purchased tickets or vacation packages to Halloween Horror Nights 2020 you have the option to use your ticket or vacation package to visit next year’s Halloween Horror Nights event, or they can receive a refund.

This decision comes as some other central Florida parks have also cancelled their after-hours events for the fall.
