Howl-O-Scream 2020 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay officially got their Halloween season started with the return of Howl-O-Scream this weekend, and we were excited that it still brought the spirit of the season with plenty of scares.

The first thing we noticed when we arrived at the park was the numerous health and safety updates. Much like the other theme parks of Central Florida, all guests entering the park are required to pass a temperature check and wear face coverings, and social distancing markers were placed throughout the park to encourage safety while waiting for rides and shows.

This year Howl-O-Scream features 10 new terrifying scare zones as well as the return of the “Fiends” show staged in an outdoor stage.

While all of the scare zones were outside, two of them, The Junkyard and The Shortcut were staged like the traditional houses where guests queued up and walked through individually. All the scare actors were situated away from the guests or were wearing facial coverings themed to their costumes.

The first scare zone/haunted house we ventured through was The Junkyard. Although it was outside, the theme and design were excellent, providing the best scares of the night. Parties were staggered well allowing time to interact with the scare actors and get the most jumps possible.

Next to the Junkyard is the entrance to the Fiends show. This is a Howl-O-Scream must see this year as they have taken it to a large outdoor stage. It is bigger and better than ever featuring great music, dancing, and all of the characters you have come to love. Guests can see it twice each nigh at 8:30 pm and 10:00 pm.

Passed The Junkyard was the creepiest scare zone of all, Little Nightmares. Staged on the dark trail alongside Sesame Place, Little Nightmares doesn’t have any jump scares or knockers, but does a solid job unsettling your soul as you walk through.

The second scare zone/haunted house is The Shortcut. Although somewhat shorter than The Junkyard, this house had more a detailed set and much scarier visuals.

Just passed The Shortcut, you unwittingly venture into danger when you stumble among carnivorous campers in Lycan Landing. Here, the only happy campers are the werewolves feasting on the poor souls who enter their campground.

After surviving the Lycan Landing you have to pass through the evil clowns and carnies in the Maniac Midway.

Next comes the terrifying toys come to life in Deadly Toys.

After you have made it this far you find yourself in a town overrun by criminals in The Escape

The final zone you come across is not a scare zone at all, but a celebration of the Día de Muertos. This colorfully decorated area features music, dancing, and characters celebrating the Day of the Dead. It is a wonderful way to end your trip around Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream.

Tickets On Sale For Give Kids The World Village’s Night of a Million Lights Holiday Spectacular

For the first time ever, Give Kids The World Village in Kissimmee will open its gates to the public – offering a glimpse into the magical, whimsical non-profit resort that fulfills the wishes of critically ill children from around the world. 

Give Kids the World Night of a Million Lights Holiday Spectacular

From Friday, November 13, through Sunday, January 3, 2021, visitors can experience the childlike wonder of the Village during Night of a Million Lights, a walk-through, fully immersive holiday light spectacular.

More than three million lights will adorn the 84-acre resort, including a 150-foot lighted tunnel along the Avenue of Angels leading to elaborately decorated wish family residential villas; more than 50 larger-than-life holiday-themed wireframes, some spanning more than 40 feet; an enormous dancing gingerbread arch; and out-of-this-world space-themed decorations showcasing the Village’s newest centerpiece, Henri’s Starlite Scoops. 

Give Kids the World Night of a Million Lights Holiday Spectacular

A stellar group of corporate treasured Partners will showcase their design talents by adopting and decorating a residential villa for display throughout the 52 nights of the event.

Tickets are on sale starting October 1 at www.gktw.org/lights, enabling guests to walk among the brilliant lights and participate in a variety of fun and festive activities in a safe, socially distant manner.  Ticket prices start at $15 for children ages 3-17 and $25 for adults, and include on-site parking, complimentary ice cream and hot cocoa, and unlimited access to the Village’s wheelchair-accessible attractions – including The Enchanted Carousel; Marc’s Dino Putt; Kelly’s Sunny Swing; Lori’s Magical Flight; an interactive model railroad; and the Village’s iconic Castle of Miracles, where thousands of stars fill the ceiling in honor of wish children who have visited the Village.  The event will run from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily, with staggered entry times at 5:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. (confirmed at the time of purchase) to ensure social distancing.  Mask wearing will also be required for all guests.

Give Kids the World Night of a Million Lights Holiday Spectacular

Proceeds from the event will support Give Kids The World’s mission to provide wish vacations for critically ill children and their families.  When wish-granting organizations receive a request from a critically ill child who wants to visit Central Florida, Give Kids The World fulfills the wish – providing each child and his/her family with a magical week-long stay at absolutely no cost.  Each family receives transportation, accommodations in one of the Village’s 166 storybook residential villas, all meals and snacks, nightly entertainment, tickets to Orlando’s world-class theme parks and attractions, and priceless interactive experiences at the Village.  Since 1986, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 176,000 families from 50 states and more than 76 countries. 

Give Kids The World Village closed to wish families in mid-March due to the global pandemic, delaying more than 4,000 wishes.  Night of a Million Lights is designed to raise funds to ensure that the wishes of critically ill children can return bigger and better than ever before once the Village reopens.

Jurassic World VelociCoaster Coming to Universal

Jurassic World VelociCoaster Universal Orlando Resort Unviersal's Islands of Adventure 2021

Roller coaster enthusiasts will soon have new thrills to experience at the Universal Orlando Resort. 

Inside of Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park work is well underway on the Jurassic World VelociCoaster, which will be Florida’s fastest and tallest launch coaster when it debuts in 2021.

The Universal Creative team in partnership with acclaimed filmmakers from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment has created a new species of roller coaster that will be highly themed and will take guests through a series of intense maneuvers that will send them catapulting at high speeds while they are suspended high above the ground with the swiftest of prehistoric predators.

Also when the Jurassic World VelociCoaster opens, it will be the world’s first coaster based on the blockbuster franchise and will feature an original story that expands upon the thrills, dinosaurs, and environments fans have seen on the big screen.

Before the thrills begin, riders will find themselves alongside the original cast of the films, Chris Pratt as Owen Grady, Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing, and BD Wong as Dr. Henry Wu.

The story takes place inside of Jurassic World as they are unveiling the next evolution of their “carnivore expansion” called the VelociCoaster where guests will embark on a high-speed chase and feel the rush of the hunt while racing alongside a nimble Velociraptor pack.

The Jurassic World VelociCoaster will raise the bar in extreme roller coaster design as it will span more than 4,700 feet of track and reach heights of up to 155 feet that will include signature maneuvers that will have guests twisting and soaring above land, barrel rolling just inches above the water, speeding through near-misses, launches within the paddock, and more…with just a lap restraint holding them in place.

Here are the Jurassic World VelociCoaster thrills by the numbers:

  • Accelerate through two pulse-pounding launches, the fastest reaching 70 mph in 2.4 seconds
  • Encounter a one-of-a-kind, 360-degree barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon
  • Experience a zero-gravity inverted stall that will send riders upside down across 100 feet of track in a jaw-dropping maneuver that is the first of its kind
  • Go airborne during the towering “Top Hat,” which propels riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80 degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop yet
  • Brace for a total of 12 heart-pounding seconds of airtime – the thrilling sensation of weightlessness riders feel when they’re lifted from their seats – throughout the entire adventure

The Jurassic World VelociCoaster will be the next addition of thrills inside the Jurassic Park land at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Inside of this immersive land, visitors can already come face-to-face with life-size dinosaurs on the Jurassic Park River Adventure, test their bravery as they get up-close to Velociraptor Blue during the Raptor Encounter, find out more about the newest additions to the paddock – baby raptors, and satisfy their cravings with all-new delectable food items inspired by Isla Nublar.

Tips & Tricks: Universal Orlando Halloween Testing

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

I was really excited to head to the Universal Orlando Resort for the Premiere Passholder preview of the Halloween fun testing in the park this weekend, and it’s time for some real talk about the experiences you find in both parks!!!

First, let’s talk lay of the land at Universal Studios Florida. 

This weekend Universal Orland is testing daytime admission to two Universal Orlando Haunted Houses that are included with your regular admission to the park.

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

The queue for Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives can be found near Universal Music Plaza. 

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

The Revenge of the Tooth Fairy queue is located just to the left of the Tribute Store. 

Queues = Time for REAL TALK

I always like to look at the “worst” park of the experience before looking at the good, and with that being said the queues are BRUTAL!!!!

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

First thing that you will notice in the picture and feel is that there is no shade in a majority of the queue.

And while wait times could be posted, because of the heat it felt longer than you’d expect.

BUT instead of being a ‘Debbie Downer’…let’s talk about how to combat these two issues!!!

Make sure to pack an umbrella in your park bag to use for shade & inclement weather. 

Grab a bottle of water before you enter the queue, make sure your phone is charged, & be patient. 

How to be prepared for your Universal Orlando Resort visit this weekend

Step 1: Make sure you’ve downloaded and set up your official @universalorl app by linking your tickets & setting up mobile ordering (you’ll thank me for that last part later)

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

Step 2: From the house listing on the app, both houses open at 9:00 am – so no sleeping in!!! You’ll want to arrive at the park early to make sure you get in the virtual queue as soon as possible!

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

PLEASE NOTE: I would absolutely advise getting to Universal Studios Florida before it opens!!!!!!!

Step 3: You heard me…Virtual Line! These houses will be utilizing the Virtual Line Experience only! No standby! 

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

Universal Orlando Resort Virtual Line Tips

  • When setting up your app, allow push notifications (you can always change this later)
  • As soon as you tap into the park look for the Virtual Line in your @universalorl app!
Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020
  • Put in how many people are in your party. If this doesn’t match the number in your party, you’re out of luck.
  • Only one person needs a Virtual Line time, don’t be that group!!!

Review Time

Here’s my spoiler-free review of Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

The house is a solid continuation of the Universal Monster series and had consistently awesome theming. 

All safety measures taken didn’t detract from the scares.

Make sure you listen to the story as you’re going through the house!

Here’s my spoiler-free review of Revenge of the Tooth Fairy:

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

Stepping into this twisted folklore tale with a Steampunk vibe is perfect for those who are new to haunted houses. 

Don’t get me wrong, there were some solid scares!

Other Halloween Fun at the Universal Orlando Parks

While you’re at Universal Studios Florida, don’t forget to do the Scarecrow Stalk (video coming soon) until November 1st!!!

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

The Skeleton Bar (Cafe La Bamba) has some great theming and tasty treats for the entire family. 

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020

Near the Tribute Store, you’ll also find a food truck serving up HHN specialties. 

Universal Orlando Resort Halloween 2020 Food Truck Menus

And for a ghoulishly good time at Universal Islands of Adventure make sure kids under 12 pick up a bag and go Trick-or-Treating at select stores. 

Participating Trick-or-Treat locations have these stickers on their entrances.

Overall we had an awesome time exploring the  Halloween fun at Universal Orlando and the Team Members did an awesome job bringing the spirit of the spooky season into the parks!!!

Happy Hauntings!!!!

Universal Orlando Tests New Halloween Experiences

The Universal Orlando Resort has announced that this weekend, September 19 and 20, guests will be invited to test several seasonal experiences that are included with your daytime admission to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Halloween Horror Nights fans are out of mourning as there are two heart-pounding haunted houses at Universal Studios Florida—Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives—that will be open for guests to experience.

Scream All Day at These Haunted Houses

These haunted houses will scare the daylights out of you all weekend long, with frights brought to life through twisted artistry.

Universal Orlando Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives

Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives

“We belong dead.” The last words of Frankenstein’s monster on that fateful night when his Bride rejected him. But his end was her beginning. Now the Bride is stepping out of the shadows to bring him back. And there’s nothing she won’t do as she sharpens her brilliance by experimenting on unsuspecting victims. The mate will have her monster. And the monster his mate.

Universal Orlando Revenge of the Tooth Fairy

Revenge of the Tooth Fairy

The innocent traditions of the tooth fairy hide a darker ritual. All children must give up their baby teeth to the goblinesque tooth fairies or pay a gruesome price. Step into an old manor that has been overrun by yellow-clawed fiends who extract teeth by force. It’s an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

The Virtual Line™ experience is available for the haunted houses. When you’re on property, use The Official Universal Orlando Resort app to select a return time for your group.

WARNING: HAUNTED HOUSES MAY BE TOO INTENSE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AND ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13. NO COSTUME MASKS ALLOWED.

Halloween Fun Expands to a Second Universal Orlando Park

Looking for a more family-friendly option? At Islands of Adventure, children under 12 can grab a free trick-or-treat bag and go door-to-door collecting tasty treats from participating retail stores this weekend. But first, you’ve got to find them, so keep a lookout for pumpkin stickers marking each location,

Show Off Your Ghoulish Garb

Get in the sinister spirit of the season by dressing up when you visit Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure this weekend. Go creepy, classic, or as your favorite character.
