Universal Studios Hollywood is temping guests with terrifying Halloween Horror Nights treats (and tricks), including food, drinks, and exclusive merchandise themed to the 2022 event, which runs on select nights from Sept. 8 through Oct. 31, 2022.
Some of the terrifying treats and “to-die-for” merchandise features “The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare,” “Killer Klowns from Outer Space,” “Universal Monsters: Legends Collide,” and other Halloween Horror Nights haunted houses. The Halloween Horror Nights event menu will include vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free items.
Guests who brave the all-new “The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare” haunted house will be rewarded with mixed drinks named for the award-winning artist’s tracks – plus light bites including fan-favorite pizza fries – at the all-new The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare Bar, a space reminiscent of a late-night club featured in The Weeknd’s music videos and short films.
Inspired by the nearby “Killer Klowns from Outer Space” haunted house, the Killer BBQ From Outer Space is a circus-themed eatery serving savory and sweet items, including BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwich, Loaded Mac & Cheese, shareable 22” All-Beef Hot Dog, Loaded Nachos, Funnel Fries, Acid Pie, and specialty cocktails.
Killer Klowns fans will also “scream in delight” for the tasty treats inspired by the horror-comedy at Jojo’s Ice Cream, including the Killer Kone, Ruijing Popkorn Shake, and Acid Pie Shake.
Plaza de Los Muertos is returning to Universal Plaza, and this year, guests can toast to the living – and the dead – with two bar options: The Dia de Los Muertos Bar serving craft cocktails such as Calavera Juice, Sugar Skull Punch, and a Smoked Margarita in a festive light-up skull mug (along with a Michelada option), and a new Margarita Bar serving a mixed Spicy Strawberry Vodka Margarita and Muerte Margarita along with frozen margaritas.
The Plaza’s Little Cocina will serve Beef Birria Tacos with Red Sauce, Cheese Tamale, Esquites, Churro Bites, Chamoy Pineapple Spears, and more. Plus, guests can purchase a light-up Sugar Skull popcorn bucket that includes free refills.
Voodoo Doughnut in Universal CityWalk is also joining the festivities with Ghost, Jack-o-Lantern, and Tombstone-decorated yeast doughnuts, and a Halloween Sprinkle cake doughnut.
Halloween Horror Nights guests won’t want to miss the “shopportunity” to purchase apparel, souvenirs, drinkware, and collectibles featuring their favorite haunted houses as well as items from the artist signature series showcasing the legendary Universal Monsters – and for the first time ever, merchandise featuring fan-favorite Lil’ Boo celebrating “Every Day is Halloween” will debut at Universal Studios Hollywood.
