The Universal Monsters will be featured as a maze at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood, with each coast getting their own version based on the popular Monster franchise.
At Universal Orlando Resort, guests will be hunted by every single grisly monster from the anthology, including Dracula, The Wolf Man and Frankenstein, in the all-new experience, “Universal Monsters.” Each sinister environment will bleed from one to the next as guests press through the darkened realms of horrifying creatures. Guests will face bloody terrors in Dracula’s castle and flee from what is behind the cryptic howls of the grim forest. They’ll run from the horrifying manmade monster within Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, and fall prey to an ancient Egyptian curse as they are pursued by the evil Mummy. Guests will try to escape the mysterious Creature lurking in the Black Lagoon, or become victims of other horrors waiting in the shadows.
On the heels of last year’s successful “Universal Monsters” experience, Universal Studios Hollywood will introduce an all-new horrifying maze, “Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man,” that delves deeper into the Universal Monsters’ lore. Loosely based on Universal’s 1943 horror movie of the same name, this reimagined tale for the 21st century takes guests on a terrifying journey that bears witness to a deadly confrontation between these two horror icons and the epic battle that rages between them.
Guests will follow in the footsteps of the Frankenstein Monster, lured by exotic music towards a nearby gypsy camp while desperately seeking sanctuary from a mob of angry villagers determined to destroy him. It is within the gypsy encampment that the Frankenstein Monster meets The Wolf Man and where the madness begins as guests are led along a path of destruction through the murky Moors, to a creepy cemetery and into the smoldering ruins of Castle Frankenstein and its icy cellars beneath.
Legendary guitarist, Slash, will also be returning to score the maze.
The Universal Classic Monsters are an important piece of Universal cinema history, with countless films made, ranging from the 1920s through the 1950s. The Monsters have also been featured many times at Halloween Horror Nights, including most recently last year in Hollywood with the popular Universal Monsters maze.
Halloween Horror Nights 29 will begin Friday, Sept 6, 2019, at Universal Studios Florida and running select nights from until Saturday, November 2, 2019. Universal Studios Hollywood will begin a week later, on Friday, September 13.
