Thanks to Universal Orlando, we are able to bring you these photos and videos inside Revenge of the Tooth Fairy, one of two haunted houses being featured this year for what we like to call Halloween Horror Lites.
Since Halloween Horror Nights has been canceled this year because of the pandemic, Universal decided to let fans into two of the haunted houses they’ve been working on: Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives.
Usually, during media night for Halloween Horror Nights, we are invited to record video and take photos in the haunted houses, which usually isn’t allowed. Unfortunately, since there is no Halloween Horror Nights, there’s no media night. So we’re happy Universal invited us out to capture at least one of the two haunted houses for those of you who can’t make it in person, or have already gone through and just want to relive it. (Spoiler alert for those of you who are planning a visit.)
Universal describes the house as: “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.”
We describe it as a pop-up book story you’re entering about a little boy who refuses to give the tooth fairy his teeth. So the fairies extract revenge on him, his family, and their servants.
Here are a few photos inside the maze, followed by a full video walk-through. Photos by Patrick Buckley of PB & J Studios photography and videography in Orlando.
These haunted houses, along with Universal’s other Halloween events, are happening Sept. 26-27 and Oct. 3-Nov. 1. The houses may be only available via the virtual queue on their official app, so be sure to check it when you arrive.
If you’re brave enough, and you have a VR headset, watch our VR180 3D walk-through. It’s best viewed using the YouTubeVR app in a Playstation VR or Oculus headset, but a cardboard viewer will work too. (Here’s more details on how to watch VR content.)
