â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in a living, breathing, three-dimensional world of terror inspired by TV and filmâ€™s most compelling horror properties. This yearâ€™s all-new terrifying line-up includes:
- For the first time ever, supernatural thriller,Â The Exorcist, will take possession of â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ in an all-new horrifying maze. InÂ â€œThe Exorcist,â€guests will see, hear, feel â€“ and even smell â€“ every iconic levitating, head-spinning, vomit-wrenching, skin-crawling moment from the film. The maze will recreate some of the filmâ€™s most haunting scenes, ushering guests into its unparalleled terror as if their very souls were possessed by the devil. They will be paralyzed with fear as they witness the power of the supernatural, scream uncontrollably as they become part of Regan MacNeilâ€™s possession and run in terror as they try to escape the horrific battle between innocence and evil.
- â€œAmerican Horror Storyâ€has terrorized television viewers for five suspenseful installments, and for the first time ever, three chapters will come to life in a new frightening maze. Guests will venture through Ryan Murphyâ€™s groundbreaking horror anthology, encountering a plethora of iconic scenes and memorable characters designed to jolt them to their very core. Twisted Murder House scenes from Installment 1 will unleash the evil spirits that possess the Harmon estate, spiraling guests through decades of the tortured dead who previously resided there. From Installment 4â€™s Freak Show, guests will join a troupe of biological misfits in a sinister sideshow where they will be stalked by the murderous and deformed Twisty the Clown. Finally, guests will succumb to the warped desires of The Countess after checking in to the haunted Hotel Cortez, conceived from the beginning as a torture chamber for its customers, from Installment 5.
- Escaped mental patient Michael Myers makes a homecoming return inÂ â€œHalloween: Hell Comes to Haddonfield,â€an all-new maze inspired by the second film in the classic â€œHalloweenâ€ horror franchise. Echoing the infamous words uttered by the filmâ€™s Dr. Sam Loomis, â€œYou canâ€™t kill the Boogeyman,â€ the twisted maze will shed new light on the terrifying lunacy of Michael Myers as he scours the streets of Haddonfield and stalks the halls of Haddonfield Memorial Hospital in ruthless pursuit of victims.
- InÂ â€œFreddy vs. Jason,â€demented killer Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street) returns to the scene of the crime, this time accompanied by notorious hockey mask killer Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) to inflict twice as much terror. Inspired by the 2003 film that brought together two of the biggest icons in horror history, this new experiential maze will thrust guests into an epic battle between Freddy and Jason and a showdown in which the fate of only one mass killer will survive.
- The unspeakable terror embroiled withinÂ â€œThe Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Blood Brothersâ€Â maze will pit guests against the unsavory wrath of demented killer Leatherface and his mentally unhinged brother ChopTop as they unite in misery to expand the familyâ€™s cannibalistic enterprise and slaughter a new generation of innocent victims. With the perverse duo at the helm of a grotesque BBQ restaurant staged inside a dilapidated roadside gas station, unwitting guests will soon come to realize the new terror that awaits as the blood brothers continue their hedonistic prey on human flesh.
- Tis the season forâ€œKrampusâ€Â as the terrifying dark Christmas legend is manifested into a maze based on the Christmas-themed horror film. The dead of winter sets the stage for the terror thatâ€™s about to unfold one cold, dank and dreary Christmas Eve as the fabled anthropomorphic “half-goat, half-demon” horned creature emerges to terrorize those devoid of holiday spirit. Guests will navigate the dysfunctional Engel family home to encounter the evil ancient spirit of Krampus â€“ the dark shadow of Saint Nicholas â€“ and his band of Dark Elves and sinister Gingerbread Men, who cause the family to fight to see the light of day.
- â€œThe Walking Deadâ€new permanent attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood will have a starring role at â€œHalloween Horror Nights.â€ By elevating the scares with more walkers and effects for the nighttime event, â€œThe Walking Deadâ€ creates a no-holds-barred experience that significantly intensifies any other iteration previously developed within the theme park. Coupled with authentic walker make-up effects, sophisticated animatronic walkers, substantially more detailed set design and costuming, and highly recognizable props replicated from the series, the attraction delivers an uncompromised realistic environment that brings guests even further into the most watched show in cable television history.
- A terrifying twist on this yearâ€™s scare zone, â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ introduces a new themed experience, inspired by Universal Picturesâ€™ disturbing blockbuster trilogy,Â â€œThe Purge: Election Year,â€that permeates all areas of the park. Iconic scenes from each of the frightening films will recreate the turmoil and pandemonium that exists when masked vigilantes hunt for victims during the governmentâ€™s annually sanctioned killing spree. Like civilians in the movie fighting to survive, guests must rely on their cunning wit, luck and speed as they attempt to outsmart and outlive the anarchy brought about by those who believe in an â€œeye for an eye.â€Â An original scare zone element will be â€œThe Purge: Gauntlet of Fearâ€ that delivers unbridled fear as guests are funneled through an area of the park to try and escape the horrors of the mass slaughter that awaits them.
- Back by popular demand,Â Jabbawockeez, the acclaimed, award-winning hip hop dance crew, returns to the stage within the Special Effects Show venue, donning their signature white masks as they perform a repertoire of innovative, synchronized choreography before an enthusiastic crowd. The all-new, high-energy Jabbawockeez show, created exclusively for â€œHalloween Horror Nights,â€ will once again underscore the dance crewâ€™s unique brand of humor as they transport guests into a new realm of gravity-defying dance, elevated to new heights by special effects and pulse-pounding music.
Theme Park Attractions:
- â€œJurassic Parkâ€”In the Dark,â€ â€œRevenge of The Mummyâ€”The Ride,â€ â€œTransformers: The Rideâ€”3D,â€ and â€œThe Simpsons Rideâ€ will be open during â€œHalloween Horror Nights.â€
