Without any official announcement at all, Universal Orlando gave fans in the park a Halloween surprise today with the opening of a new Beetlejuice haunted house.
UPDATE – 10/31/20: Universal has stated that the house is scheduled to open from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31 and Sunday, Nov. 1. Operating hours are subject to change, and it may be limited.
Soon after the Beetlejuice house was available in the virtual queue portion of the Universal Orlando app, a sign went up near the area where the house entrance is in Universal Studios Florida at the E.T. ride, that said it was at capacity.
There’s no word yet if the house will be open tomorrow or later, or if it’s a one day thing. More capacity may open up later today in the app or they may just open it for all guests to wait in line for, but nothing is certain.
Rumors say the house opening at such a late date has something to do with Universal’s licensing agreement to use Beetlejuice, but we don’t know for sure.
This haunted maze joins two other Universal that have opened for all park guests since they have had to cancel Halloween Horror Nights this year. The other two mazes are The Bride of Frankenstein Lives and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy, which you can see below.
