The Shining is Coming to Halloween Horror Nights!
It’s about to get very creepy over at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights…
For Universal’s legendary Halloween Horror Nights event, only the most iconic and terrifying horror stories will do. Which is why when we heard The Shining would be joining the line-up this year, we couldn’t wait to share the news with you!

For the first time in HHN history, the film will be featured in a Haunted Maze format, truly bringing the iconic 1980’s cult classic to life. Guests at the event, which will be taking place at both Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood, will be able to explore (or run screaming through) the Overlook Hotel as they watch caretaker Jack Torrance’s descent into madness.

Paranormal forces, nightmarish visions and plenty of ‘was that what I think it was?!’ moments are guaranteed at this freakishly frightening Haunted Maze. Not to mention of course a visit from the terrifying Jack Torrance as he wields his axe and announces, ‘Here’s Johnny!’. “We cast the Overlook Hotel as the aggressor and view it as if you have the ‘shining,’” said Charles Gray, HHN show director, on Universal’s official parks blog. “Our goal is to have you constantly doing a double take and give you that, ‘Did I just see that?’ feeling.”

Over at Universal Studios Hollywood, there will also be a ‘Shining’ house, so if you’re visiting close to Halloween (dates are still TBC), you definitely won’t wan to miss it!

Take a look at this video to give you an idea of the horrors you can expect this Halloween Horror Nights 2017…
