COVID-19 has scared away Halloween Horror Nights.
Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort announced Friday that the popular fall fright fest has been canceled this year amid the ongoing public health crisis. The California theme park has been closed to the public since March, while the Florida location reopened in June.
"Universal Studios Hollywood continues to face ongoing business restrictions and uncertainty around its opening timeframe," the statement said. "Universal Orlando Resort will be focusing exclusively on operating its theme parks for daytime guests, using the enhanced health and safety procedures already in place.
"We know this decision will disappoint our fans and guests. We are disappointed, too. But we look forward to creating an amazing event in 2021."
