Haunting of Hill House Maze Coming to Universal Resorts' Halloween Horror Nights
Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood have announced some all-new mazes for Halloween Horror Nights 2021. For the first time ever, Netflix's critically-acclaimed series "The Haunting of Hill House" will be featured at the annual event, which begins in September. The imposing and mysterious Hill House eerily comes to life beckoning guests to embark on the dark journey experienced by the Crain family.
Iconic scenes from the Netflix series will be featured throughout the maze, including the omni-powerful Red Room - the heart of Hill House - and the infamous Hall of Statues, where deceptive powers overtake everyone who enters. Apparitions will appear around every corner, from William Hill - The Tall Man, whose towering stature overwhelms everyone he encounters; to The Ghost in the Basement, who feverishly crawls throughout the bowels of the House in search of his next victim; to The Bent-Neck Lady, whose disturbing scream and ghastly appearance invoke a constant state of unnerving dread.
"The Haunting of Hill House" mazes will test even the bravest guests as they attempt to escape the entanglement of the estate's eternal stranglehold or succumb to the powerful forces of Hill House - leaving them to wander the endless halls forever…alone.
"Hill House" creator Mike Flanagan said, "I have loved Halloween Horror Nights for so long. Some of my favorite memories of Halloween were made at Universal Studios, screaming and laughing with my friends. It is such an honor to be included among such fantastic Haunts, and I'm so glad that fans will be able to walk the halls of Hill House this Halloween. This is - without a doubt - one of the coolest things that's ever happened to us at Intrepid. We are so excited to visit the Red Room again - we hope to see you all there!"
"It's a nightmare come true to bring Netflix's "The Haunting of Hill House" to life for our guests this year at ‘Halloween Horror Nights,'" said Charles Gray, Senior Show Director for Entertainment Creative Development at Universal Orlando Resort. "The show brought true horror to the masses, similar to what we've provided our guests at this event for nearly 30 years - Hill House is a perfect fit for "Halloween Horror Nights" as it enters a new decade of fear."
"Mike Flanagan has elevated the horror genre with his supernatural thriller, ‘The Haunting of Hill House,'" said John Murdy, Executive Producer of "Halloween Horror Nights" at Universal Studios Hollywood. "We continuously challenge ourselves to raise the bar with each maze we create, and we look forward to creating a unique experience for our guests that combines both the psychological and visceral twists from the series. The goal is to make our guests feel as if they are walking in the footsteps of the Crain family, re-living all the horrors that they experienced."
Halloween Horror Nights will begin on September 3 in Orlando and Thursday, September 9 in Hollywood - and both events run select nights through Sunday, October 31.
