Universal Orlando Resort Shares New Drinks and Bites for 2018 Halloween Horror Nights

Universal Orlando Resort has revealed all of the food and drink items coming to Halloween Horror Nights this year and there are tons of Stranger Things-inspired treats.

Pictured above is the new Halloween Horror Nights Tombstone doughnut that can be found at Voodoo Doughnut in Universal CityWalk. It’s a yeast-raised doughnut with raspberry Bavarian cream, cookie crumble dirt, and green grass sprinkles. Annual Passholders can purchase the doughnut first with a valid ID from September 10-13 and AP discounts will apply.

If screaming makes you crave something sweet, you don’t want to miss these five new waffle dishes – descriptions taken straight from Universal:

These Stranger Things-inspired Christmas Tree Light Cupcakes are adorable.


Ending the lineup of treats is a dish featuring 11 Mini Donuts in your choice of powdered sugar or cinnamon that are topped with drizzles of red frosting. We’re betting you can guess why there are eleven of these little bites.


If you’re hungry for something savory, stop by Benny’s Burgers, named after the diner in season one of Stranger Things, in the New York area of the park where you’ll find the return of the Fiery Onion Ring Burger at Mel’s Drive-In, the Chili Garlic Chicken Sandwich at Richter’s in San Francisco, and the Pizza Fries at KidZone Pizza Company.


Three new Halloween Horror Nights signature drinks are on their way and they are served in a uniquely designed, blinking souvenir cup with a twisty straw. Choose from the following (pictured from left to right in the image below):

  • Totally L.I.T. (Long Island Iced Tea) – Vodka, tequila, gin, rum with triple sec, lime, sour and Coca-Cola
  • Wicked Rad Punch – Blueberry vodka, raspberry vodka, triple sec, lemonade and grenadine
  • Gnarly Twist – A perfect sweet and sour combo of both the Wicked Rad Punch and Totally L.I.T.


Last up are two new non-alcoholic frozen beverages that you can find in the New York area at the Gramercy Popcorn stand and the food and drink stand near the front entrance of Universal Studios. The great news is that both of these will be available during the day.

The Syrup & Waffles, inspired by Stranger Things, is a delicious blend of flavors that has tiny waffles on top.


The Candy Corn frozen beverage has a bottom layer of toasted marshmallow, the middle with your traditional candy corn flavor, then topped with whipped cream with sprinkles.


There are also going to be new Coke Freestyle flavors available, as well as a variety of mugs including the all-new Frequent Fear mug.

Halloween Horror Nights runs for 36 select nights from September 14 to November 3, 2018.
