Heading to California this year? Then you’re in for a spectacular time.
The arrival of a new attraction and a Halloween Horror Nights 2020 announcement - here’s what’s happening at Universal Studios Hollywood soon.

If you’re visiting California, a visit to Universal Studios Hollywood is well worth adding to your itinerary. There’s some exciting new updates and events coming to the attraction too, including a brand new ride and the reveal of the first maze theme for the Halloween Horror Nights 2020 event. 


The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!

First up, opening March 27 is The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!, which will anchor a new Illumination Entertainment franchise “neighbourhood” to the west side of the park’s Upper Lot. The ride replaces “The Walking Dead” attraction, which will close on March 4. 

The area will now be referred to as Pets Place, changing from the London-themed Baker Street to an area inspired by New York City, to support the new attraction.  

The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash! will be the first attraction in Hollywood to use Universal’s Virtual Line when it opens. Universal Express will also be offered on the attraction. 

The ride features a walk through the New York apartments of the pets, including Buddy’s apartment, Snowball owner Molly’s living room, and Max and Duke’s apartment. Guests will then board a five-minute omnimover-style dark ride. 

The ride will feature 64 animatronic figures, as well as voice talent from the movie including Patton Oswalt as Max, Kevin Hart as Snowball, Eric Stonestreet as Duke, Jenny Slate as Gidget, Tiffany Haddish as Daisy, Lake Bell as Chloe, Dana Carvey as Pops, Chris Renaud as Norman, Hannibal Buress as Buddy, Bobby Moynihan as Mel, and Jessica DiCicco as Princess. 


The Walking Dead Halloween Horror Nights Maze

As for the “The Walking Dead” attraction, that won’t be the last we see of the TV show’s influence at the park. Universal Studios Hollywood also announced that the theme for their first Halloween Horror Nights 2020 maze will be The Walking Dead. 

A spokesperson said - “We look forward to the return of ‘The Walking Dead’ as a focal point in our slate of Halloween Horror Nights mazes this fall.”

Guests will no doubt be delighted that this popular attraction will still be incorporated into the Park’s most popular event, which fits perfectly into the terrifying experiences Halloween Horror Nights is known for.
