Universal Orlando has announced that four original horrific houses are joining its Halloween Horror Nights collection. They include killer scarecrows, vampires, evil in the depths of a bayou, and demonic flying creatures. The full list can be found below.
Scarecrow: The Reaping
Since the great Dust Bowl, an abandoned farmhouse stands in Nebraska. The bountiful fields ravaged by the farmers’ plows have spurred anger in the land. Scarecrow guardians have risen from the blood-soaked soil to seek revenge. The harvest that will be reaped this season is you.
We’re huge fans of those little-known 1980s horror movies, and we wanted to make you feel as if you’re in those movies. The story takes everything that is sexy, beautiful, or cool about vampires and flushes it down the toilet. These Nosferatu are nasty, animalistic, and vicious. It’s the type of house that will make you cling to your date all the way to the exit… if you make it that far.
We have had houses that later became scare zones in the streets of Universal Studios Florida. This is one of the first times in recent memory that a scare zone has influenced a house. For Halloween Horror Nights 24, we had the Bayou of Blood scare zone. It was so strong in character and story that we had to revisit its story again. We’re excited to have you explore the Dead Waters of the Voodoo Queen and her hellish realm. Trust us… you’ll freak out when you see the half-sunken riverboat and the skeletal remains of her victims close in.
It’s the ancient battle between good and evil. The Fallen are flying, jumping, and crawling up from the kingdom of darkness and laying waste to all who cross their path of destruction. These creatures are awesome… and yes, we did say “flying.” This house is a mix between beauty and decay, high screech and deep roar; and it delivers more surprises than we can fit in this paragraph.
