The hit FX television show American Horror Story is returning to Universal Orlando this fall as the first haunted house revealed for Halloween Horror Nights 27.
Beginning Friday, September 15, FX’s Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television series American Horror Story will come to life for a second consecutive year at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 27. Guests will venture through Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology, where they’ll encounter iconic scenes and memorable characters from seasons 2, 3, and 6 of the series.
Universal Orlando’s all-new maze will bring three new installments of the American Horror Story anthology to life. In Asylum, guests will travel through the decades of the notorious Briarcliff – evading Dr. Arden’s grotesque human “Rasper” experiments and coming face to “face” with the serial killer, Bloody Face. In Coven, New Orleans aesthetics will surround guests as they’re drawn into the bloody rivalry between the descendants of the Salem witches, the voodoo Queen of New Orleans Marie Laveau, and the sadistic Madame Delphine LaLaurie. And finally, guests will relive the horrific story of the Millers in Roanoke – where they’ll be at the mercy of Piggy Man, the grisly Polk family and the ghosts of the blood moon.
Here’s the official announcement video for American Horror Story at Halloween Horror Nights 27:
“We are thrilled to bring the incredible storytelling and iconic characters of ‘American Horror Story’ back to Halloween Horror Nights for a second year,” said Michael Aiello, Sr. Director of Entertainment Creative for Universal Orlando Resort. “Last year, ‘American Horror Story’ was the highest guest-rated haunted house in Halloween Horror Nights history – and we can’t wait to immerse our guests in all-new horrors from the show.”
“The thought of guests once again experiencing up-close multiple installments of Ryan Murphy’s incredible ‘American Horror Story’ series is deeply disturbing, bone chilling, and immensely satisfying. We are thrilled to partner with Universal Studios to present an all-new version of last year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” all-time fan-favorite maze,” said Greg Lombardo, SVP of Global Live and Location Based Entertainment, FoxNext Location Based Entertainment.
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando will run for a record-breaking 34 select nights from September 15 to November 4. American Horror Story will also return to Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights in an all-new maze; more details about Hollywood’s experience will be released later.
