Emerging from the tunnel, we basically entered the movie. The set pieces are amazing recreations of some of the movie’s most memorable scenes. We saw ghoulish creatures waiting for eternity in the waiting room scene. The dinner party scene was also there, complete with monster shrimp cocktail. Yes, “The Banana Boat Song” was blasting! It looked like the dining room set was built for additional performers to dance along, but those performers were absent.
Once inside, like Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and Bride of Frankenstein Lives, the Beetlejuice house uses plexiglass to keep performers separated from guests.
Lydia is seen in a foggy corner, saying “I too am strange and unusual.”
Beetlejuice makes multiple appearances in various forms throughout the attraction. We see him as a slithering snake. The rolling arms Beetlejuice from the wedding scene is also here, but seemingly deactivated—again, opening a house during a pandemic means that a lot of effects suffer.
Similar to last year’s Ghostbusters house, the Beetlejuice house showcases amazing set design over screams. We felt as if we were walking through the movie’s story arc, from the first encounter with Beetlejuice, to the wedding scene, to the waiting room, and every spooky part in between.
Fans of the film and character should get to Universal Studios Florida before Beetlejuice returns to the underworld. The house will be open today and tomorrow until 6:00 PM.
