He was ‘coming’, he was ‘still coming’ and now, Krampus Arrives at Halloween Horror Nights!


We’ve been saying since 2015 that Krampus was coming and now *finally* after months of waiting, official news has come this weekend that Krampus will indeed be at HHN on both coasts this year – hurray!

Here is our February blog where we spelt out exactly why Krampus would be at HHN26.

So ’tis the season for Krampus as Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort bring the terrifying dark Christmas legend to life in an all-new HHN maze beginning September 16, 2016.

The creative minds behind the nation’s best and most extreme Halloween events unleash the wrath of Krampus, Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures’ Christmas-themed horror film co-written and directed by Michael Dougherty, in sinister new HHN mazes for 2016 which will appear at both the Orlando and Hollywood events.  Below is a photo of the Construction of the latter so far…


The dead of winter sets the stage for the terror that’s about to unfold one cold, dank and dreary Christmas Eve as the fabled anthropomorphic “half-goat, half-demon” horned creature emerges to terrorize those devoid of holiday spirit. In scenes lifted from the film, guests will navigate the dysfunctional Engel family home to encounter the evil ancient spirit of Krampus – the dark shadow of Saint Nicholas – and his band of Dark Elves and sinister Gingerbread Men, who cause the family to fight to see the light of day. (This we literally cannot wait to see!)

Additional details about Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights will be revealed soon.
