In a social media post, one Guest talked about potentially being banned after they had to be escorted out of Universal Studios Florida. This Guest smuggled in a flask, which is a prohibited item at Universal, and started drinking it in line during Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights. Universal’s policy states that open containers or drinks containing alcohol are prohibited.

“pulled the flask out and we had a couple of sips and I put it away. Immediately after exiting the next maze we were pulled from the line and confronted about the flask. We were very cooperative and humble and there wasn’t any conflict. The woman even told us we were lucky they weren’t getting the police involved.”
