It has been said by insiders that Universal has been desperately looking for ways to cash in on its classic monsters, but it has not been able to do so. If the iteration coming to Universal Studios Florida is like its Hollywood counterpart, they will be doing so. It has also been said that Universal has been looking for a way to cash in on the popular Halloween Horror Nights year round. Again, this does that. Halloween Horror Nights and Monsters are a big part of what Universal does and does well, not to mention the classic Universal monsters are woefully underrepresented in the park. Conveniently, The Monsters Cafe butts up to Soundstage 44, so we'll almost get a "Monsters pavilion" if this is indeed what's on the way.
A permanent haunted house attraction will be a nice addition to a bare area of the park. With the loss of Jaws and the potential future loss of the plot between MiB and Simpsons, Universal Studios Florida needed a new venue for Horror Nights. It is currently unclear why height-balloons were spotted above Soundstage 44. Perhaps the new building will be have multiple floors or something interesting on the roof.
For those that are familiar with the USH House of Horrors, you'll probably know it's considered a weaker attraction for the park. Personally, we feel like Universal Creative and A&D will rectify this situation and hit this one out of the park. The Hollywood version has a much smaller footprint than this assumed addition, and the extra space will allow for a much more in depth haunt experience.
