Universal Orlando Resort announced today their five terrifying scare zones filled with roaming scare actors for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights 2017.
This year, horror will fill the streets with “The Festival of the Deadliest.” This ancient tradition brings hellish imagery to life that will be impossible to ignore or run from. A collection of monsters and maniacs will join together by firelight to bring true frights to guests.
Once guests enter this horrifying scare zone, they will take the chance at surviving two additional scare zones based upon two fan-favorite horror films: “Trick ‘r Treat” and “The Purge.” Two additional scare zones straight from the minds of Universal Orlando’s Entertainment Team are also in the lineup: “Invasion!” and “Altars of Horror.”
Inspired by the Legendary Pictures horror film, “Trick ‘r Treat” will surround guests with jack-o’-lanterns and classic trick-or-treaters going door-to-door. They will have to stay on their toes to avoid the infamous Sam, who will creep through the shadows to enforce the rules of Halloween and punish those who disobey them.
The great American tradition of “The Purge” returns to Halloween Horror Nights this year with fan-favorite characters from the films, as well as the classic victim auction for those who wish to exercise their right to purge.
In the “Invasion!” scare zone, guests will become the human experiments of alien scientists bent on the destruction of planet Earth.
The “Altars of Horror” scare zone will bring guests face-to-face with some of the most terrifying characters in this year’s lineup of mazes based upon hit horror films and TV shows.
Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights will also host two live shows: the fan favorite from Halloween Horror Nights 2016 returns as an all-new show with “Academy of Villains: Afterlife,” which will incorporate aspects of the “Festival of the Deadliest” scare zone; and “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventures: The Farewell Tour,” which will be the final run of the cult stage show after 26 years.
More details on the annual Halloween event will be announced soon. For more information on Halloween Horror Nights 2017, and to purchase tickets, visit halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando.
