Universal Orlando has announced another original haunted house for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, titled “Carnival Graveyard: Rust in Pieces.”
The house will lead guests through a “dilapidated carnival,” Universal said in a press release, where they’ll come across creepy attractions, games, guard dogs and “vicious performers” with weapons pieced together from old carnival rides.
“Ride parts have become instruments of torture and the walls have been painted in the blood of those foolish enough to enter,” Charles Gray, writer and show director for Halloween Horror Nights, wrote on the Universal Orlando blog. “These carnies won’t stop until they’ve had their fun-filled revenge.”
For anyone scared of haunted, creepy carnivals, Halloween Horror Nights 2018 will provide plenty of material for new nightmares. Besides the new house, the event will also feature a “scare zone” based on the 1988 cult horror film “Killer Klowns from Outer Space.”
This year’s edition of Halloween Horror Nights will feature an ‘80s theme and a total of 10 houses—the most in the event’s history. With the addition of “Carnival Graveyard,” five have been announced, including those based off the Netflix series “Stranger Things” and another themed around the 2007 film “Trick ‘R Treat.” Additionally, all of the event’s scare zones have been revealed.
Along with the scare zones and haunted houses, the event will see the return of the Academy of Villains dance crew.
The first night of Halloween Horror Nights is scheduled for Sept. 14. It will then take over Universal Studios Florida on select nights through Nov. 3.
