REVIEW: Dead Coconut Club at Universal CityWalk Orlando for Halloween Horror Nights 31

For Halloween Horror Nights 31, the Red Coconut Club at CityWalk has undergone a terrifying transformation into the Dead Coconut Club featuring the Universal Monsters.

Exterior

Guests entering are greeted by a faux Frankenstein’s Monster. The story is you’re visiting a club to hear the Bride perform.

Interior

The whole place has a very ’60s sci-fi aesthetic to it.

Projections on the ceilings help add to the ambience.

*NEW* The Bleeding Eye – $14.50

A diabolical violet mélange of El Jimador Blanco Tequila, Crème de Cassis, agave, lime juice and ginger beer. Served with a lychee-blueberry edible eyeball

We weren’t particularly impressed by this one. It’s incredibly, ridiculously sweet, which also enhanced by the ginger beer. It’s the only tequila drink, a rarity for tiki drinks.

The edible eyeball was a nice touch, but this wasn’t our favorite.

*NEW* The Haunted Isle – $14.50

A tempestuous tropical tipple combining Pusser’s Navy and Plantation Pineapple Stiggins Rums with tropical juices, allspice bitters and mysterious Falernum

This drink wasn’t particularly amazing either. While the presentation is nice for sure, the outspoken rum taste drowns out all of the fruit flavors. On top of that, the mint does nothing for the drink, and it isn’t even fresh.

We’d give this a pass as well.

*NEW* The Java Island Beast – $14.50

A dark and mysterious blend of Pusser’s Navy and Cruzan Dark rums with Kahlua, tropical juices and allspice bitters

While this may not be as much of a taste assault, the allspice bitters help disguise the strong rum flavor here a bit better.

Still, we were unimpressed.

*NEW* Un-Tipsy Tiki – $7.50

A refreshing tropical spritz combining tropical juices, tonic water and rich Orgeat

Amazingly, this was our favorite. It’s a tart beverage, tasting like pineapple juice, cream of coconut and seltzer.

We found this to be extremely refreshing, and it’s a very pineapple-forward drink. This is our recommended choice when you visit.
