Fear Factor Live | Universal Orlando Resort

This attraction has officially been retired by Universal Orlando Resort.

When you visit Universal Orlando Resort, Fear Factor Live is a show no one wants to miss! Fear Factor Live will leave you stunned and in awe of how every day people just conquered their biggest fear. Watch as guests from the park (sign up prior to show) are challenged to land physically exhausting stunts as well as eating and/or encountering those creepy crawlers of the night. Fear Factor Live is really a great show for everyone. Guests wanting to participate can do so be auditioning ahead of time (details below) or volunteer for smaller tasks during the show. However watching this unforgettable show is also very worth the wait! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the shocking shenanigans unfolding in front of you.

  2. Once guests are seated in the outdoor theatre the host will ask for a handful of volunteers to participate in more kid-oriented tasks.

Audience participation in each show involves 18 guests, and 6 guests will be chosen per show to compete in 3 stunts with 1 winner. Winners can receive items like extra park tickets & passes, special souvenirs, etc.

The Mouse For Less Tips

  • Fear Factor Live is intended for audiences of all ages, but certain stunts can be intense. Parental advisory is recommended for younger audience members.
  • The theatre is equipped for the needs of every guest. American Sign Language (ASL) is provided at certain show times, wheelchairs (manual and ECV) are permitted, and service animals are also welcome. For more information on accessibility in the parks, click here.
  • This show runs throughout the day so the wait times are typically not very long, though most wait times will vary depending on the time of year and crowd size. Should you see a wait time too long for your preference you can use your Universal Express Pass to jump ahead of the line.
  • For your best shot at being an audience participant guests will want to get a seat close to the stage. Be sure to shout and holler when asked to volunteer!
