Halloween Horror Nights 2016 is shaping up to be the annual event’s most awesome outing to date, with horror classics Halloween, The Exorcist and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre joining attractions based on Freddy vs. Jason and even last year’s Krampus. How much better could HHN 2016 get? Well, they’ve just added one of their most requested haunts EVER!
From the official Universal blog…
So this brings us to our last reveal and one our team has been excited about bringing to HHN for quite some time – FX’s American Horror Story. This all-new house will feature Season 1: Murder House, Season 4: Freak Show and Season 5: Hotel.
Since this fantastic series began we’ve been watching and calculating how – if ever given the chance – we would translate it into a haunted experience. The most engaging aspect of American Horror Story is the fact that every season is a completely new storyline, with brand new environments and characters, not unlike Halloween Horror Nights.
First, we needed to decide how to capture all that content into a single house. The uber-maze or larger template we’ve adopted, most recently with our popular 25th Anniversary maze last year, was the most ideal format. You’ll be confronted by the horrors that reside within the walls of the newly bought Harmon residence and evade the abominations that call it’s basement home. You’ll witness the atrocities that befell many of the unfortunate souls of a roadside Freak Show and encounter Twisty, a maniacal and deformed clown performer. Lastly, you will check into the Hotel Cortez and unlock the domain of The Countess, as she ensures your stay is anything but pleasant.
These three seasons will be vividly recreated in every detail – environments characters and moments. We’ve worked extremely close with the series creator, Ryan Murphy and 20th Century Fox, to insure it captures the series in every way possible.
Halloween Horror Nights 2016 runs from September 16th through October 31st.
