Surround yourself in nightmarish versions of your favorite holidays this Halloween season with the all-new original maze, “Holidayz in Hell”, coming to Universal Studios Hollywood.
One of the most popular “scare zones” of Halloween Horror Nights last year (an area that is themed around a property and is filled with actors meant to scare guests) was a zone themed to the holidays New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of July, Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Only these weren’t the traditional version of the holidays. These were hellish versions of the holidays, in a scare zone called “Holidayz in Hell”. The scare zone featured middle-aged Cupid, sinister Leprechauns, and Undead Easter Bunny, a Half-Turkey/Half-Human abomination nicknamed Turkey Lurkey, and an evil version of Santa Claus called Krampus. Now the scare zone idea has been expanded to an all-new original maze for Halloween Horror Nights 2019!
Inspired by the popular scare zone of the same name, the “Holidayz in Hell” maze will feature an original score by Electronic Music Artist and Producer Figure and offer guests new reasons to dread the holidays. A tortured Tunnel of Love, inhabited by a crazed Cupid on a quest for hearts to break or take will make this Valentine’s Day anything but romantic; an unhinged Uncle Sam will create a sinister July 4th killerbration; treacherous turkeys will gobble, gobble an unsuspecting family; and a sick Santa will adorn Christmas Trees with human body parts, with many other milestone killer holidays.
Ah, the Holidayz from Hell have arrived.
Those who survive the Holidayz need not let down their guard just yet as a creepy Christmas-themed scare zone with additional frights awaits to fill beating hearts with holiday fear. Dark Christmas scare zone will feature sinister elves, an icy Jack Frost, Ice Witch, and an 8 ft-tall Nutcracker!
In addition to the music of Figure, who previously created a series of original sounds for Halloween Horror Nights in mazes like Monsters Remix and Face-Off: In the Flesh, guests can expect to hear a new rendition of their favorite holiday tunes, remixed to accompany this hellish new maze. For more information on the maze, check out our panel coverage from Monsterpalooza, a horror convention that reminds horror fans that horror is year-round.
“Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood begins Friday, September 13, and 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 and frightful scare zones 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.
