BREAKING: Vinyl Dividers Will Separate Guests and Scare Actors at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights 30

Due to the continually rising rates of COVID-19 in Florida and the greater Orlando area, Universal has made the decision to take protective measures for Halloween Horror Nights 30 in 2021.


Like last year, vinyl dividers will be placed in what Universal called “key locations” of their haunted houses to allow for safer guest interactions with Scare Actors.

Scare Actors and team members will also be required to wear masks as well, although many of the Scare Actors will already be masked up due to their costuming.


Although guests are “encouraged” to wear masks while going through the many haunts at this year’s event, Universal is not requiring guests to wear masks indoors, which is in line with current COVID policies for Universal Orlando Resort.

Universal has also not let it be known whether guest parties will be staggered inside the houses, even though they are enclosed with tight spaces.

Halloween Horror Nights will be happening select nights from Friday, September 3 through October 31.
