This article follows the normal house route from beginning to end, and a few scares are revealed to show detail of the effects. If you prefer to be surprised, read this article after you’ve had a chance to go through. We also want to warn you that some of the images are very graphic.
Two college students visit a pub called “The Slaughtered Lamb”. This is a lights-on tour, so the lighting here is much brighter than during actual operation of the house. Also, no scareactors perform during the tour.
The students are warned not to go into the Moors, and of course they do. Inside jokes to look for in the graveyard scene are references to Jaws and King Kong, which are attractions that have dearly departed Universal.
This room depicts a famous and ground-breaking moment from the film, where a character transforms into a werewolf through mechanical changes in the make-up. Here, a scareactor in wolf face makeup performs through an opening in the floor. (Note this room also has a Mickey Mouse figure, just like in the movie.)
To the immediate left is this placard. It refers to last year’s Silent Hill house. There have been multiple attempts to get American Werewolf into Horror Nights. Last year it was bumped by Silent Hill.
Here’s a walk-through of the whole house using infrared, taken with special permission by Universal during regular operating hours:
This year Universal offers two different “Unmasking the Horror” tours of the houses of Halloween Horror Nights. If you take both tours in one day, you’ll see six of the eight houses. House combinations may vary. A regular day park ticket is not required to take a tour. Each tour is $59.99 separately, plus tax. Or both in a single day for $99.99 plus tax.
