Theme park revelers, beware.
Monsters from classic horror movies will be on the hunt at Universal’s Florida and California parks this fall.
“Universal Monsters: Legends Collide” was announced Tuesday as the theme for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.
Guests with tickets to the seasonal event will be able to brave a haunted house as The Wolf Man, Dracula and The Mummy face off.
“Halloween Horror Nights continues to expand the exciting legacy of Universal Pictures – the motion picture studio that brought classic horror monsters to screen – with this original haunted house making its theme park debut in ‘Universal Studios coast to coast,’ the theme park collection said in a statement Tuesday.
“This bi-coastal experience will transport guests back to the 19th century with the trio of monsters in search of one thing: the Amulet of Ra,” Universal said. “The Wolf Man believes this ancient relic contains the power to finally lift his dread curse, while Dracula and The Mummy have nefarious plans to use it to bring humanity to its knees.
“With the full moon rising and a race against time, guests find themselves entangled in a bloody battle between the terrifying titans – and only one will survive.”
Halloween Horror Nights will begin September 2 in Orlando, which will feature 10 haunted houses, and September 8 in Hollywood, where eight haunted houses will appear. Haunted Holiday events will be open select nights until Halloween, October 31.
Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist Rocker Slash will return to work on an original score for Universal Studios Hollywood’s haunted house after collaborating for the event in previous years.
Details of other haunted houses during the events will be revealed at a later date.
