The seven mazes and three scare zones making up the 2021 edition of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood have now been announced.
On Tuesday, the park revealed that the event will feature a house based off 1988’s “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers,” returning to the same location in the Waterworld queue where the house stood in 2018.
Another returning maze will be The Walking Dead, temporarily reviving the once-permanent haunt attraction that closed in March 2020.
The 2021 event will also see the return of the Terror Tram, an overlay of the park’s tram tour during HHN events. No Terror Tram was offered for the 2019 event, but this year, it will themed to the latest entry in the “Purge” franchise.
“Unfortunately for you, some of the most iconic Purgers from each of the terrifying ‘Purge’ films have taken over and are running rampant,” Universal said in a press release. “It’s every man and woman for themselves as masked and costumed marauders are out to ambush anyone outside during Purge hours.”
With the lineup now complete, only one of the seven mazes — The Curse of Pandora’s Box — will be an entirely original creation not based on an existing horror franchise.
Universal also announced three scare zones for the event: Demon City, Chainsaw Rangers, and Universal Monsters: Silver Screen Queenz, where “classic female movie monsters” will roam near the “Bride of Frankenstein” house.
Rounding out the entertainment will be the return of the Jabbawockeez dance troupe to the Fear Factor Stage.
Universal Studios Hollywood will be taken over by Halloween Horror Nights on select nights from Sept. 9 through Halloween.
