Universal Orlando has revealed a slew of new, original content that will be featured at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights 24 event.
The 3 new houses are described as follows:
Dollhouse of the Damned – “Within the decaying walls of this house awaits something evil. The unfortunate souls that enter here will become the damned that never escape.”
Giggles & Gore Inc – “Witness the torturous process that turns kidnapped people into evil clowns – just try not be transformed into one yourself.”
Roanoke Cannibal Colony – “In the settlement of Roanoke the frenzied colonists will rip, tear and devour any fresh meat that comes near them.”
In addition, 2 new scarezones were revealed. Show Director Lora Wallace revealed details on Universal’s official blog.
The whole concept is that these people are trapped in an old time period—their skin is falling off, they have stitched their skin back to their faces, but much of it is still peeling off. What I love about the concept is that it is like you’re entering this really surreal dance, but it is very terrifying at the same time.
There is wax holding their skin on, some are sewing their skin back on but they are doing it very poorly, and there are some whose skin is still detached.
It is grand in scale—there are elements above your head while this off-putting yet harsh waltz music plays. Everyone is moving in a really surreal and creepy dance. There is beauty along with the disgust.
Bayou of Blood
Our high priestess is crazy-evil and in a trance, doing numerous spells and sacrifices to get the ultimate power in her. Because she has made these sacrifices, many other voodoo practitioners in the area have come and they are squatting outside of her shack. They feel if they make sacrifices to her, they will get some of that power when she makes the ultimate sacrifice.
You’re going to see her sacrifice someone right in front of you…you will see every gory detail of this ultimate sacrifice. But that’s not the end—once you get past the sacrifice and the high priestess’ shack, you enter into the area inhabited by the voodoo squatters…and they are all looking for something or someone to sacrifice.
Halloween Horror Nights will be held on select nights between Sept. 19 and Nov. 1. Tickets are now on sale. For more information, go to HalloweenHorrorNights.com/Orlando.
