An all-new terrifying scarezone will emerge from the shadows this week during Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. Guests who are brave enough to walk the ominous New York alley will have the chance to inspire elements of next year’s 20th anniversary run of Halloween Horror Nights.
“The fog will surround you as you make your way through the shadow-filled alleyway. The blood red light will bathe your skin as you try to get to the end of the passage, to safety. But they will be there lurking, waiting for you – above and all around you. You’ll feel their eyes follow you but you’ll never be sure of what you see. The shadows will overtake you. There will be no escape this time.”
On Thursday night only, after experiencing the new scarezone, guests will have the opportunity to tell Halloween Horror Nights creators what scares them the most. In on-camera interviews or through other surveys, guests will be asked to share their favorite moments from the past 19 years of terror and what new fears they’d like to have piqued. This feedback will be used to inspire what will be the most intense year of fear in the event’s history.
Halloween Horror Nights: Ripped From the Silver Screen runs for only four more nights: Oct. 28 – 31. At this year’s event, modern horror films are “ripped from the silver screen.”
