FIRST LOOK Inside 2023 Halloween Tribute Store at Universal Studios Florida

Universal Orlando Resort shared a first look inside this year’s Halloween Tribute Store at Universal Studios Florida. We already detailed the Easter eggs in the comic book shop façade. Inside, guests will “experience the ‘Tribute to Terror’ by stepping into the pages of this original, terrifying, horror comic book.”

Guests will see the black-and-white office of Detective Boris Shuster, who is also referenced in the windows outside. Detective Shuster was featured in Case Files Unearthed: Legendary Truth, a house at Halloween Horror Nights 30.

Detective Schuster founded Legendary Truth, an association that investigates the evil behind Halloween Horror Nights. McPherson’s disappearance led to Schuster’s investigations of Dr. Agana. At the same time, Tim Foyle began investigating Schuster’s records in 1991.

Schuster was amassing information (and writing novels) related to the Legions of Horror and their totems. Using the books and notes, Foyle would end up collecting the totems and opening a portal that unleashed unspeakable monsters. He may or may not have died, as we last saw him with light bursting out of his eyes and mouth in Case Files Unearthed: Legendary Truth.

This portal was opened on October 31, 1991, implying that the horrors he unleashed are the reason behind Halloween Horror Nights, which also began that year.

The Tribute Store will open for Halloween Horror Nights 32, which begins on September 1, but be available for guests during the day, too. Annual Passholders will preview the store on August 30.
