Here is another very positive sign that things are slowly returning to normal in the amusement industry - Universal Orlando has already announced their first haunted house for the upcoming Halloween Horror Nights 30.  The Beetlejuice house, which opened briefly last fall during the park's limited Halloween celebrations, will return this fall.


The event's 30th anniversary will kick off on September 3rd and run on selected nights through October 31st, 2021.  The full schedule can be seen on the park's website, and it offers more than 40 nights of fear during this year's run.

The Beetlejuice house revisits the original movie and brings it to life, and the above photos shared by the park give a feel for a zany atmosphere inside the attraction.  Promising that bringing the film to life will be "more twisted and terrifying than ever," the haunt features checkerboard hallways, a Lost Souls room, the famous model graveyard, and the "infamous dinner party scene" and "Beetlejuice's chaotic wedding."

In past years, where a pandemic wasn't taking place, the park did start to announce house themes and licensed properties this early.  That seems to show a high level of confidence on the part of Universal that Halloween activities will be more normal this year.  We're all for it!
