    Does anybody know if Grinchmas is returning again this year to Universal Studios Hollywood?

        I'm almost 100% sure. At Halloween Horror Nights they were giving a flyer out at the turnstiles advertising Grinchmas this year.

          After searching through the official site, I saw that there indeed is going to be Grinchmas this year. I've heard a rumor that they may be using the Wild West venue for part of the Grinchmas event this year. Can anyone confirm this?

            It would certainly be better than the area they used for the snow last year. That space worked REALLY well for the Halloween Maze. It would be really cool if they did some kind of WhoVille walk through in that area. Kind of like a HHN Maze, but not scary.

              But that would mean they tear down the Halloween maze! :'(

              I say they put it behind Shrek...

                We really enjoy USH at Christmas time!

                But they haven't been able to impress us as much as they did back when they had the year of a million lights! That was awesome!

                Oh yeah, and we do miss the largest candy-cane ever! (AKA escalators with red stripes).

                Maybe they'll bring them back this year...

                  It would be torn down anyway. It was a seasonal attraction.

                      Um, I'm fairly sure they have blue prints to build it again. There's no sense leaving it there if nothing's going to be done with it, as they wouldn't run the maze during normal (non Halloween event) hours anyways.

                      If they do it again, I'm pretty sure they can recreate or improve what they've already done- but that would require its demolishment anyways.

                        Glad someone posted this topic...I have not seen any ads for USH for the Holidays but hope they do something. I think they can do more to attract people during this time of the year. Hopefully they put more thought into this this year and the coming years if they put some time and money during the 11/26-1/3/2010 it could turn out really cool!!!


                        USH rocks!

                          They finally have it the USH website and it only runs from December 19 to January 31!!! Is that the norm? Why don't they run it the whole month?

                          We are in California from December 12-18, and we fully expected to be visiting a holiday layout at US, as well as DL and KBF, which will both be fully decked out.

                          I have to say, I am quite bummed out that it only runs the 13 days

                            The park is already decorated for Christmas, but the Grinchmas activities are for 13 days/nights.

                              Okay, this makes me feel a whole lot better

                              Thank you!!

                                Is it worth the money to go to this? My wife is unsure of whether the cost to get into the parks to see this is really worth it.

                                  The Grinchmas tree is already towering over the old Wild West Arena.

                                    If you're going only because of Grinchmas, probably not. If you're going because you haven't been to USH for some time and Grinchmas would just be a bonus, then it might be worth it.

                                      Thanks. Actually, it is Universal Studios Florida, but value wise I'm assuming they are roughly similar. We were at Universal in February, so I'm sure that other than Rip Ride Rockit there isn't much new for us. I'm guessing the Grinchmas thing really isn't worth it then.

                                      Again, thanks.

                                        If you're considering going to the Universal Studios Florida version, then by all means do go - both parks are well decorated with various atmospheric characters around in Seuss Landing all day. They have a short (30 minute) musical with live performers that is extremely well done, as well as the also-great Macy's Holiday Parade. Christmas carols play throughout the park... it's a very charming experience this year, having just gotten back from last weekend.
