Orlando, Fla. (September 22, 2020) – Universal Orlando Resort has launched a series of exciting experiences so that guests can celebrate the Halloween season at the award-winning theme park destination beginning September 26.

Plus, guests may don Halloween costumes while visiting the theme parks, take part in trick-or-treating, embark on a fun scavenger hunt and more.
BRAVE TWO HAUNTED HOUSES IN UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FLORIDA
Developed by the twisted minds of Universal Orlando, guests can scream their way through two all-new haunted houses where terrifying creatures await to haunt their every move. In “Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives,” one of Universal Pictures’ most notorious monsters will step out of the shadows as she stops at nothing to revive Frankenstein’s Monster at any cost. In “Revenge of the Tooth Fairy,” guests will be immersed in an original story that uncovers a dark ritual behind the innocent childhood tradition.
Access to the two haunted houses is included with theme park admission. There may be times when the Virtual Line experience is available for the haunted houses. Guests can use the Official Universal Orlando Resort App to select a Virtual Line time to visit. Haunted houses may be too intense for young children and are not recommended for guests under 13.

It's the middle of June, and we're starting to get updates from parks that are open throughout the country. And it's a nice change of pace.
Today we've got an update from Universal Orlando Resort from Andrew where the Jurassic Coaster is moving very quickly. Also, the Bourne Stuntacular has entered the Technical Rehearsal phase.

Bringing you a little construction update on the new Jurassic Park roller coaster coming to Universal Orlando.
Progress is speeding along with a large portion of the track now in place.
Twisty, Twisty, Twisty, Twist.
This thing is moving along SO quick.
Editors Note: Any chance this is open by December? =)
An overview of the construction area.
Over at the studios park, the Bourne Stuntacular has entered Technical Rehearsals.
It was just as exciting and explosive as you'd think.
Social Distancing in the queue
We hope you enjoyed this quick update from Universal Orlando!
We figured during this downtime for theme parks we'd share some pics of Islands of Adventure, one of our absolute favorite parks. The park turns 21 today and is officially old to get a drink at Mythos, or Miss Oats as our kids called it during our first visit to the park in 2006.
And that's where we'll start our look back at the park today. Enjoy!! - Gregg

For the second part, we move over to the Islands of Adventure of today, well, a few years ago, just before Dragon Challenge closed.
The park sure has changed over the years. Check out these amazing pics from Matt.
And lastly, we'll leave you with the future, some pics of the yet unannounced Jurassic Park/World coaster. These were taken just before the parks shut down in early March. Thanks to Nicholas for sharing this pics with us.
We hope you enjoyed this quick look back at IOA. We can't wait to get back to the adventuring soon.
