“As guests trespass into a dilapidated carnival, they will find a maze of decayed rides and games – and soon discover they are not alone. Horrifying guard dogs, a grotesque ‘tunnel of love’, gleefully vicious performers loaded with deadly weapons fabricated from old rides and more will stalk guests’ every move as they try their best to escape.”
Halloween Horror Nights runs select nights from September 14 to November 3 and will feature more houses than ever before! Universal Orlando announced that their 2018 Halloween event will have an extra 10th house, giving you more places to have the fright of your life.
Universal had previously confirmed four of the houses that will make up the 2018 event. The much anticipated Stranger Things and the cult classic movie Trick ‘r Treat will also be making its maze debut. Universal has also created the original houses Dead Exposure: Patient Zero and the B-Movie styled Slaughter Cinema.
HHN28 will most definitely be “inspired by the 80’s” with both Stranger Things and Dead Exposure: Patient taking place in the horror filled decade. In fact, the 80’s is spilling out onto the streets and into the scare zones. Universal has already confirmed this year will feature FIVE scare zones.
Three of the five scare zones are original ideas. There’s Vamp 85: New Year’s Eve where “fanged punks and big-haired vamps” crash a New Year Street Party. Twisted Tradition will decorate the Central Park area with “rotting pumpkins fused with decaying human flesh”, just beware of the “fetid beings” as the light of the pumpkins is your only guide. The Harvest will take you through a seemingly abandoned barn, where images from the houses will decorate your path.
Academy of Villains will also be returning for the third year running. Unfortunately last year’s early performances were hampered by Hurricane Irma, so it’s great that the dance group will be back. Let’s hope that the Hurricane also doesn’t make a repeat appearance.
