Universal Studios Hollywood’s final haunted house for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights has been revealed – “The Curse of Pandora’s Box.”
Temptation will be unleashed in this all-new, original house as it spills the evils of mankind through this ancient Greek mythology-inspired experience.
Check out the official house description for “The Curse of Pandora’s Box” from Universal Studios Hollywood:
Greed is the underlying theme of this all-new maze, resurrected from Universal Studios Hollywood’s vault of masterful storytelling that transports guests from the land of the living into the nightmarish netherworld of Hades. The scene begins with “Pandora’s Cabinet of Curiosities,” a dilapidated storefront set in modern times that is, nonetheless, eerily reminiscent of a structure that belongs in the dark and dangerous back alleys of Victorian London.
Amid every occultist artifacts and forbidden relics known to man, the bizarre shop houses an all-consuming collection of evil trapped behind glass-encased cabinets, including a giant, ornate box inlaid with human bones and adorned with the silhouette of a mysterious woman clasping her body with skeletal arms.
As guests pass through the shop they will hear a faint, yet seductive voice echoing the words, “anything can be acquired, anything our hearts desire,” beckoning maze-goers to tempt fate, just as a cataclysmic earthquake erupts, shaking the shop and swinging open the ornate box to awaken a demonic voice whispering in a foreign tongue to “come inside.”
Once Pandora’s Box has been opened and evil unleashed, it can never be closed again.
