Universal’s newest haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights will bring a maze of terrifying traps to life from the horror film franchise, “SAW.”
The house of horrors will bring guests face-to-face with traps from the SAW film series including its latest installment, “Jigsaw,” which is scheduled to open in theaters Oct. 27, just days before Halloween.
“SAW: The Games of Jigsaw” will encompass the greatest collection of traps featured in all eight SAW movies to bring to life the most twisted SAW maze ever produced, and we can’t wait for our fans to relive moments from the films,” said John Murdy, creative director at Universal Studios Hollywood and executive producer of Halloween Horror Nights (HHN).
“Saw” is the fourth haunted house announced for the annual Halloween event. The other mazes are based on “The Shining,” FX’s “American Horror Story” and the Starz series “Ash vs. Evil Dead.”
Halloween Horror Nights began as a three-night event with one haunted house in 1991 at Universal Studios Florida. The first-year admission price was $12.95. The theme park’s streets are transformed into themed special zones, where “scare-actors” lunge from darkened corners. Multiple haunted houses are based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series.
HHN27 begins Sept. 15 and runs on 34 select nights through Nov. 4. Tickets start at $59 for adults.
