This year, the event will open on September 6 and will last up until November 4 to thrill guests with a record number of Halloween-inspired attractions and experiences throughout the park.
Universal Studios Japan’s fright-fest will be presented through a variety of sub-events and attractions under three themes, namely “Halloween Horror Nights: Screaming Halloween,” “Otona Halloween,” and “Kowa Kowa Halloween” that young and old alike will absolutely enjoy.
