Halloween Horror Nights is an incredibly popular event that runs from early September through October. It's perfect for thrill-seekers who love a good scare. The Pros include new scare houses and scare zones each year, making it a fresh and exciting experience. However, it's important to mention the Cons as well - the event can be quite costly, and the crowds can be overwhelming. Plus, if you're not a fan of spooky stuff, it might not be your cup of tea.
Next, we have Mardi Gras, which takes place from mid-February to early April. This lively event brings the spirit of New Orleans to Universal Studios. The Pros include delicious food, thrilling concerts, and a vibrant parade that captures the essence of Mardi Gras. On the flip side, there aren't any new rides or attractions specifically for Mardi Gras, and some experiences may require an additional cost.
For the Winter Holidays, from mid-November to early January, Universal Orlando goes all out with festive celebrations. Pros include incredible entertainment such as Grinchmas and Macy's Parade, which are included with park admission. Both parks participate, making it a fantastic option for family-friendly fun. However, it's worth noting that the holiday season can be quite busy and slightly more expensive due to the popularity of the events.
Lastly, there's Rock the Universe, a special winter event focused on Christian music. Taking place from January 26th to 28th, 2024, after 4 pm, this separate ticket event is exclusive to Universal Studios. It's a remarkable opportunity for Christian music enthusiasts to enjoy their favorite bands and experience the park in a unique way. Regular guests can enjoy the park until 6 pm, after which it closes for the event.
