In honor of the third season of the horror-comedy series Ash vs. Evil Dead, Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights is opening an all-new maze featuring all the gore and laughs you've come to expect from the Starz series. You can check out a teaser of the new maze above.
A description of the new maze is as follows:
"The Ash vs Evil Dead maze will transport guests into the town of Elk Grove, Mich., where they will encounter Deadites – people or objects possessed by evil demons – that have been unwittingly unleashed by Ash Williams – again. Throughout the maze, guests will come face-to-face with disturbing characters and iconic comedic and gory scenes from seasons 1 and 2 as they desperately try to escape all things evil...before it's too late. The STARZ Original Series Ash vs Evil Dead is a follow-up to the original The Evil Dead movie, which has long been regarded as a cult classic since its debut in 1981. Starring Bruce Campbell, who reprises his role as 'Ash Williams,' the series has amassed a huge fan base and was renewed for a third season by STARZ. Catch up on the STARZ APP."
Universal Studios' "Halloween Horror Nights" is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood and Orlando to become victims of their own horror film. The streets of each coast's event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing "scare-actors" lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.
This year could be one of the biggest yet for the attraction, as it will also feature mazes based off of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining and American Horror Story. Specifically, the attraction will incorporate elements from last season, "My Roanoke Nightmare."
"The macabre mind of Ryan Murphy brings a treasure-trove of limitless possibilities to 'Halloween Horror Nights,'" said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of "Halloween Horror Nights." "Because of the multitude of terrifying layers that come to life within this latest installment of FX's American Horror Story, we are devoting our entire maze to uncovering every twisted detail to fully immerse our guest into the Roanoke storyline."
Halloween Horror Nights has a reputation for bringing audiences some of the most extravagant haunted house in the country, based on horror fans' most beloved properties. Previous years have featured mazes based on films like Halloween, An American Werewolf in London, and Alien vs. Predator.
Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights runs select nights between September 15 and November 4 in Hollywood, CA and Orlando, FL.
