For the first time ever, Universal Studios Hollywood is breaking the mold of annual scares with Halloween Horror Nights by introducing a kid-friendly Halloween celebration on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 from 10 am – 4 pm where children 12 years and under can wear costumes, trick-or-treat inside the park, and meet some of their favorite characters!
The character aspect is above and beyond the coolest selling point of this event with the opportunity to meet Hello Kitty as The Bride of Frankenstein, Minion Monsters, Spongebob SquarePants and Patrick Star, Scooby Doo and the gang, Curious George, Woody Woodpecker, Dracula, Frankenstein and The Mummy.
Trick-or-treat and character meet and greets will be happening at select theme park locations between 10 am and 4 pm, but that’s just one part of the event. From 11 am – 2 pm there will be a Halloween Party in the Plaza with a live DJ, music, games and costume showcase, with the costume showcase taking place between 1 pm – 2 pm. Halloween treat decorating will be available to purchase at an additional cost. All children 12 years old and under will receive a free carnival game voucher redeemable at Super Silly Fun Land or Krustyland’s Carnival Games.
Hopefully this event is a success in Hollywood and it’s brought over to Universal Studios Florida in the future!
