Universal Studios Hollywood has started selling tickets to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights! I’ve been waiting for weeks for them to give ticket information because I wanted to make sure that we’re able to go.
I’ve actually never been to Halloween Horror Nights before. But last year my husband went with some friends and he enjoyed it so much that he says we have to go together this year. He’s been talking it up and so we’ve been planning on going for months now.
Check out this press release from Universal Studios Hollywood!
Universal Studios Hollywood unleashes a terrifying trio of slasher films as “Freddy vs. Jason,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “Halloween” stab through “Halloween Horror Nights” in three all-new disturbing mazes! CLICK HERE for a look at the nightmare that awaits.
Universal City, CA, July 26, 2016 – Freddy Krueger. Jason Voorhees. Leatherface. Michael Myers. The four most terrifying names in horror come together at this year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood as the silver screen’s extreme serial killers bleed into a trio of all-new slasher-themed mazes, beginning Friday, September 16, 2016.
In “Freddy vs. Jason,” 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 New Line Cinema’s 2003 film that brought together the biggest horror icons in history, this new experiential maze thrusts guests into an epic battle in which the fate of only one killer will survive.
The unspeakable terror embroiled within “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Blood Brothers” maze, based on Tobe Hooper’s original film, will pit guests against the unsavory wrath of the demented killer, Leatherface, and his mentally unhinged brother, Chop Top, as they unite in misery to expand the family’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 realize that new terror awaits as the blood brothers continue their hedonistic prey on human flesh.
Escaped mental patient Michael Myers makes a homecoming return in “Halloween: Hell Comes to Haddonfield,” an all-new maze inspired by the second film in the classic “Halloween” horror franchise. Echoing the infamous words uttered by the film’s Dr. Sam Loomis, “You can’t kill the Boogeyman,” 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 his victims.
“Halloween Horror Nights” 2016 at Universal Studios Hollywood kicks off on Friday, September 16, 2016. The popular event brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in a living, breathing, three-dimensional world of terror.
Featuring an all-new slate of unrivaled film production quality mazes, frightful scare zones and a fully re-imagined “Terror Tram” experience uniquely themed to today’s most definitive horror properties, “Halloween Horror Nights” will taunt, terrorize and torment guests with spine-chilling haunted attractions as part of Southern California’s most extreme Halloween experience. The all-new “The Walking Dead” permanent attraction, based on AMC’s hit show will further enhance “Halloween Horror Night’s” terrifying lineup.
