Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando have announced that its popular Halloween Horror Nights will return in September, and will feature new mazes based on the hit Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House.
IGN reports that sevens from the series will bring Hill House to life in the Halloween Horror Nights mazes, where guests will embark on the dark journey experienced by the Crain family, who were haunted by long-dormant fears from their time living in the menacing Hill House as children, and forced to face the ghosts of the family home’s grisly past.
Scenes included in the maze will include the Red Room, the heart of Hill House, and the Hall of Statues along with apparitions from William Hill (The Tall Man) to The Ghost in the Basement to The Bent-Neck Lady.
A press release from Universal stated: “The Haunting of Hill House mazes will test even the bravest guests as they attempt to escape the entanglement of the estate’s eternal stranglehold or succumb to [its] powerful forces, leaving them to wander the endless halls forever … alone.”
Charles Gray, senior show director for Entertainment Creative Development at Universal Orlando Resort called the new feature ‘a nightmare come true’, and John Murdy, the executive producer of Halloween Horror Nights, said, “We continuously challenge ourselves to raise the bar with each maze we create.”
Halloween Horror Nights open on 3 September in Orlando and 9 September in Hollywood. Both will run select nights until 31 October.
The Haunting of Hill House is currently streaming on Netflix.
