Recently, Universal unveiled a brand-new dining experience for those looking to get ahead of the game and try out all the food and beverages offered during Halloween Horror Nights. HHN 365 recently shared images from the official Universal website 14 days ago, unveiling an unparalleled dining encounter previously unseen within Universal Resort. Scott Gustin, a prominent figure within the industry and a respected journalist, also disseminated the revelation regarding this distinct dining offering about a week ago.

The price tag was a whopping $159.99, with Passholders getting a discount. Many fans were upset by this experience costing double the admission to HHN 32. But just yesterday, it was reported that Universal went ahead and changed the price and brought it down to $135.99 per person.
