Why did it close?
Unfortunately, this small stop in Seuss Landing has been closed more often than not over the course of the past 15 years; Universal experimented with giving it a new lease on life in late 2017, but – presumably – either the interest or the business just wasn’t there to sustain it (even after attempting to slim down the menu options in late 2019).

What replaced it?
Nothing as of yet, though it’s likely this piece of real estate will remain unoccupied.

Honk Honkers – former overview
After sitting empty for nearly a decade, Universal has given the old Honk Honkers an overhaul – guests are able to choose a cotton-candy flavor (Birthday Cake, Apple, Grape, Strawberry, Pink Vanilla, and Blue Raspberry) and a cotton-candy stick (including sugar lollipop ones), and then enjoy! You can also find unique candy options, such as distinctly flavored popcorn and marshmallow pops.

Former prices
Cones – $5.95
Unicorn pops – $6.95

(Former) OI fun fact
The Honk Honker hails from the book Happy Birthday to You!, where he hikes high up Mt. Zorn to celebrate the day your child was born (which might have helped contribute to the rumor from several years ago that the Islands of Adventure store was going to be transformed into a birthday-party room before its grand reopening in 2017).
