The Halloween Horror Nights 32 entrance archway trusses have been installed near the front of Universal Studios Florida. The entrance is usually after the park’s front gates, in Production Central, but most of the land has been transformed into Minion Land.

The entrance trusses create a box over the street outside the Universal Studios Store. There is no theming on the trusses yet. They may be home to the neon Halloween Horror Nights sign, but the setup is also smaller than the usual trusses.

This scare zone will be Dr. Oddfellow’s Collection of Horror. The doctor will lure guests into Halloween Horror Nights “with a promise of immortality. As he lifts the veil on all the horrors to come, you’ll soon realize you may not even survive the night.”

More props have been added to the music fest stage in the Vamp ’69 scare zone. There is now a psychedelic pink and orange backdrop with a sigil in the center.

There are bongos on a platform at the back of the stage and a striped blanket covering what appears to be a drum set.

Here is the description of this scare zone:

At a 60s music fest in a small New York town, you’ll jam to popular bands with fellow concert-goers until Dr. Oddfellow unleashes vicious vampires on the audience. They’re out for your blood.

Jungle of Doom: Expedition Horror Scare Zone

Lastly, we spotted this black wooden box on wheels at the Jungle of Doom scare zone. This one is set in the 1920s when Dr. Oddfellow was “performing horrific experiments on nature. Now his monstrous creations are running amok and are coming after you.”

Dr. Oddfellow is the icon of this year’s event, although marketing will likely lean more toward IP-related houses like “The Last of Us” and “Stranger Things.” Dr. Oddfellow was first introduced at Halloween Horror Nights X in The Fearhouse. Jack the Clown, a frequently recurring Halloween Horror Nights icon, once worked for Dr. Oddfellow. One of this year’s houses is Dr. Oddfellow’s Twisted Origins and all of the scare zones relate to him.
