Halloween may seem far away but at Universal Studios Florida “It’s never too soon to start panicking”! This September the park will open its gates and welcome guests to the ultimate Halloween spectacular, unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Tickets are already on sale (this event requires a separate ticket), so it’s time to prepare to be scared! The first haunted maze to be announced was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and 2 exciting new additions have recently been added to the line-up. This year, visitors who are brave enough can expect to face the wrath of the horrifying characters from both The Exorcist and The Walking Dead!
This year, The Exorcist will be making its first ever appearance at Halloween Horror Nights. Fans of the popular event as well as fans of the iconic movie will be thrilled to see something completely new arrive at the park. The disturbing movie was one of the first of its kind to portray a storyline focused around a demonic child. When the young girl Raegan becomes possessed, her local priest proclaims that the only resolution is to perform a disturbing exorcism.
Check out this teaser trailer, to find out what awaits!
As you step into the unknown and enter the haunted maze, your worst fears are realised. Will you come face to face with Raegan? Will you become possessed too? While a lot of the details still remain a secret, Universal have promised a realistic recreation of the settings, characters and scenes from the movie, with new unique adaptations. This means that we can be certain about one thing; The Exorcist is about to come to life scarier than ever before!
Universal hope to immerse guests into the petrifying world they have created, in an attempt to deliver the scariest Halloween Horror Nights event so far! By the time they leave, guests will feel as though they too have become possessed, as they are overtaken by the demonic forces that lie deep withing the maze.
The Walking Dead will also feature at the 26th annual Halloween celebration, returning to Orlando for its 5th consecutive year. Loved by Halloween Horror Nights regulars, the maze has been a hit year after year, and will be getting an even scarier makeover for this year’s event. This time, the haunted maze will be based on all six seasons of the chilling AMC horror-drama series. All of the most iconic moments and characters will be packed into one terror inducing experience inside the thrilling maze. Only the bravest guests dare enter!
Prepare to find yourself in the middle of a crowd of roaming walkers as you try to escape from the iconic barn at Hershel’s Farm, get up close to the collection of eerie fish tanks and race through Terminus. Your final hurdle reflects the latest season, as you’re transported to Alexandria, and forced to make your way through the revolting sewers before having to fight off the vicious wolves! Will you ever make it out?
Whilst these are the only haunted houses to be announced so far, the current line-up suggests that there are plenty more thrills to come!
