Michael Myers Coming to Universal Studios Hollywood for Halloween
Michael Myers, from the famed movie series Halloween, is one of the scariest and most feared characters in cinematic history, which should make him right at home at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights this year.
Starting on Friday, Sept. 18, guests at Universal Studios will be able to travel through a Halloween-themed maze dubbed “Halloween: Michael Myers Comes Home,” which will take visitors through the town of Haddonfield, Illinois, Myers’ home town, transporting them Halloween night in 1963, when Myers killed his parents and sister.
Visitors will travel through the abandoned Myers house and witness the scene of the gruesome murders from the movie. Once in the house, though, parks patrons will try their best to avoid Michael Myers and his signature knife.
Halloween Horror Nights executive producer John Murdy released a statement about the collaboration between Universal Studios and Halloween:
“Halloween is the ultimate classic slasher film that spawned an entire horror film genre. Bringing John Carpenter’s disturbing, cutting-edge vision to life as part of Halloween Horror Nights is the ideal complement to our maze lineup as we continue to break creative ground with outstanding horror icons that raise the intensity level of our experience.”
The new maze will open on Sept. 18 and will be open through Nov. 1. The attraction will be part of Universal Studios’ 25th anniversary celebration of Halloween Horror Nights, which will also feature scare zones, the improved Terror Tram and many more additional horror elements.
In addition, the amusement park will feature several film production-quality mazes, including The Walking Dead, Crimson Peak and Insidious themed experiences. For more information on Halloween Horror Nights, check out the official website.
