Universal have today announced that two individual houses of epic proportions are to be presented at HHN this year. Orlando are to receive a refreshed version of the hit maze from Hollywood’s 2018 season with Universal Monsters. Hollywood on the other hand are going in deeper with a retelling and modern update of the classic 1943 movie Frankenstein meets the Wolfman!
Orlando’s event has announced:
At Universal Orlando Resort, guests will be hunted by every single grisly monster from the anthology, including Dracula, The Wolf Man and Frankenstein, in the all-new experience, “Universal Monsters.” Each sinister environment will bleed from one to the next as guests press through the darkened realms of horrifying creatures. Guests will face bloody terrors in Dracula’s castle and flee from what is behind the cryptic howls of the grim forest. They’ll run from the horrifying manmade monster within Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, and fall prey to an ancient Egyptian curse as they are pursued by the evil Mummy. Guests will try to escape the mysterious Creature lurking in the Black Lagoon, or become victims of other horrors waiting in the shadows.
On the heels of last year’s successful “Universal Monsters” experience, Universal Studios Hollywood will introduce an all-new horrifying maze, “Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man,” that delves deeper into the Universal Monsters’ lore. Loosely based on Universal’s 1943 horror movie of the same name, this reimagined tale for the 21st century takes guests on a terrifying journey that bears witness to a deadly confrontation between these two horror icons and the epic battle that rages between them. Guests will follow in the footsteps of the Frankenstein Monster, lured by exotic music towards a nearby gypsy camp while desperately seeking sanctuary from a mob of angry villagers determined to destroy him. It is within the gypsy encampment that the Frankenstein Monster meets The Wolf Man and where the madness begins as guests are led along a path of destruction through the murky Moors, to a creepy cemetery and into the smoldering ruins of Castle Frankenstein and its icy cellars beneath.
Musician Slash will also develop a brand new score for the Hollywood maze and Orlando are yet to say whether they will reuse Slash’s soundtrack from last year or whether they will be creating an entirely new one for their house.
As our social media channels have been on melt down today, it would appear everyone is VERY excited for these new attractions! Us at HHNU literally can’t wait!
Let us know in the comments if you are really excited too!
