For the first time ever, ‘The Shining’ will bring terror to Halloween Horror Nights in new mazes at both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort beginning this September.
The minds behind the nation’s most intense Halloween events will bring every gruesome moment and paranormal haunting that fans have seen in the film to life in original, authentic mazes.
‘The Shining’ maze at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights will provide guests with a unique opportunity to relive some of the film’s most iconic, and sinister, moments. While venturing through the eerie Overlook Hotel, guests will be thrust into the hotel’s history of murder and madness, bearing witness to caretaker Jack Torrance’s spiraling descent into insanity. Nightmarish visions will come to life in this maze, overwhelming guests with the “shine” of the murderous, ghostly entities that lurk around every turn – all while trying to escape the wrath of Jack Torrance as he succumbs to the hotel’s paranormal forces.
‘The Shining’ has been regarded as “a masterpiece of modern horror” by critics and fans alike. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, the film’s enormous influence on pop culture has been captured throughout a multitude of films, television shows, music and more since its debut in 1980.
This marks the second house revealed for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando, with the return of ‘American Horror Story’ announced back in March. Additional details about Halloween Horror Nights on both coasts will be revealed soon. For more information, visit HalloweenHorrorNights.com.
