PHOTO REPORT: Universal Orlando Resort 10/6/22 (Creature from the Black Lagoon Mold-A-Rama Figure, No ‘Ghoulish’ Showings, Scare Zone Fun at HHN, and More)

Welcome to another spooky night here at the Universal Orlando Resort. It’s time to head back into the fog for another night of Halloween Horror Nights, but first, let’s make a quick visit to the Dead Coconut Club.

If you’re a fan of Mold-A-Rama wax figures, there’s a brand new machine inside the Dead Coconut Club in CityWalk. The Creature from the Black Lagoon can be yours for just $8. Just look at that real, life-like non-motion!

Sadly, the lagoon is not included.

The machine also hints that there will be another monster added. Who could it be? We’ve got some guesses, but we can’t wait to find out. If you’re a fan of these little plastic souvenir figures, be sure to check out the new molds in the Tribute Store, too.

Inside the Universal Studios Store in CityWalk, we spotted these cute new ornaments with the snowman from Hogsmeade. There are 4 different ones, each wearing different Hogwarts house colors.

Time to get spooky! Hopefully it won’t be too busy tonight.

There’s a homicidal Chucky toy at the Universal Studios Store for $25.

Here’s a look at this week’s HHN magnet.

A few last minute merchandise arrivals. This is a really nice set of buttons.

Even though the scare zones are more fun after dark, we love getting some good pictures at sunset.

The Team Members have really done a fantastic job of getting the park put back together after Hurricane Ian. The food booths are all open and the facades have been completely put back together.

The food this year has been great, but we have a few favorites. Lil’ Boo’s Spicy Pumpkin Bun is probably my top pick this year. Not only is it easy to walk and eat, it’s delicious!

The Sweet Revenge scare zone is one of our favorites. The story of the Tribute Store and the scare zone is awesome and we can’t get enough.

Don’t eat the candy, stay away from the children, and you should be safe.

It’s a beautiful night to be in the park. It’s finally starting to feel like autumn. There’s a nice breeze and the air feels cool and refreshing.

Are we on “Ghoulish Watch” now? Due to damage from Hurricane Ian, the lagoon show Ghoulish is not playing at this time. No word on if it will return, but stay tuned for updates. If you didn’t get a chance to catch the show, you can check it out in our post here.

When the sun starts to set and the chainsaws come out, you know it’s going to be a good time. We love the sounds of screams and chainsaws echoing through the night.

Just a little appreciation for the beauty of Mel’s Die-In.

Word must have gotten out that the Pizza Fries are better at Louie’s. It was packed in there tonight. We had planned on getting some Reuben Fries, but not with these kind of lines.

The line for this booth in the back is always crazy. If you see the pumpkin booth with a short line, do yourself a favor and get a maggot covered cheese dog.

There’s patio furniture and 3 bars set up behind Lombard’s, just across from King’s Cross Station. It’s quiet and you can get a drink without the wait. This is the secret spot this year.

Wait times were up and down all night, but it seemed like the average wait time was around an hour during the peak of the night.

A lonely red light bulb with no cover.

After failing to get Reuben Fries, my next stop was to Gramercy Park. Luckily, the lines were short, so it was fast to grab a Haunted Horseshoe. This burger is one of our favorite meals at HHN this year.

The Dark Room has gone dark forever. The lights are on inside the building and we can see through the curtains that everything has been removed. We also noticed there’s a hole in the wall connecting it to Williams of Hollywood. This same setup exists at Universal Studios Japan, so maybe the shops will be connected in the same way.

This is our favorite scare zone! Graveyard: Deadly Unrest is amazing. The scareactors are so good and there is a nice variety of different scares.
