DORAL, FL – Restrictions over COVID-19 pandemic have many people concerned about their plans for Halloween. The good news is that two attractions promise to keep the holiday alive.
The Not So Spooky Adventure & Harvest Market in Miami and Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando will do the trick.
The first one will take place at Tamiami Park, 11201 SW 24th St. Miami, FL 33165, by entering on Coral Way and 114th, on Saturdays and Sundays from September 26 until October 31.
It will be opened from noon until 7 p.m. and $29 dollars tickets must be purchased in www.notsospooky.com. Pre-sale tickets are available now.
Created by event agency Swarm, this is a drive-thru attraction where kids will be able to do trick or treat from the car.
This Halloween activity includes a drive-thru pumpkin patch where people can pick the best future jack 0′ lantern, a radio-guided adventure that takes visitors on an interactive Halloween journey and a harvest market where parents can shop.
According to the Miami Herald, although this is a mostly drive-thru experience, it is possible to eventually get out of the car with socially distanced seating plus family photo opps throughout the market.
In Orlando, on the other hand, the festivities around Halloween will start as soon as this week with Universal Studios and it’s Halloween Horror Nights.
Two of its previously canceled Halloween Horror Nights haunted houses will make a come back, CBS Miami reported.
On Friday afternoon, Universal’s premier-level passholders who register for the event will be able to preview the houses called Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein.
Regular theme park visitors will have access to the houses on Saturday and Sunday for no additional charge with new restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. No additional dates for viewing the houses have been announced.
Once they arrive in the park, they have to use Universal’s Virtual Line system to get a notification on when to enter the attraction.
Face coverings are required at Universal, although no costume masks will be allowed for the event.
But the fun doesn’t end there. The park also announced it will offer trick-or-treating at Islands of Adventure for children ages 12 and younger this weekend allowing “family-friendly” Halloween costumes.
