‘Haunting of Hill House’ Joins Universal Halloween Horror Nights 2021

The ghosts of hit Netfilx series The Haunting of Hill House will terrorize guests at Halloween Horror Nights in 2021, with all-new houses at both Universal Studios’ theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood.

From the official announcement: Enter the decaying remains of Hill House, an aging mansion that lives – even if all who dwell there are long dead. Each room takes you deeper into the terror of its ghostly inhabitants. Just don’t enter the Red Room or you may spend eternity listening to the sound of your own screams. Step right into Netflix’s supernatural masterpiece, The Haunting of Hill House.

The nerve-fraying tension builds as the long-dead (and more recently dead) inhabitants lunge from the shadows. Prepare to come face to face with The Tall Man, The Bent-Neck Lady, The Ghost in the Basement, and more. Welcome to Hill House, a structure more alive than its ghostly inhabitants. Inside these dilapidated walls echo the haunted footsteps of those unlucky enough to call it home – those trapped here for all time. Be careful as you journey down each darkened hallway or you may end up trapped here yourself.

According to the official site, Universal’s creative Entertainment teams are collaborating once again with Netflix to transform one of their hit horror series into a real haunted house experience, working directly with Netflix on every detail from the scenic and character development to scare moments and more. The goal is to create an experience that is authentic to the show, while maintaining the level of scares you can expect from Halloween Horror Nights.

The site adds, “This won’t be your typical HHN haunted house where it’s intense scares from the get go. It will start with more of those sinister, creepy vibes that make the little hairs on the back of your neck stand up. It will simmer and build tension with subliminal scares and then boom! The action hits you. Just wait until you experience the finale scene.”

A Beetlejuice-themed haunted house has also been announced for Orlando park this year, where visitors will be able to walk in Adam’s model graveyard and Dante’s Inferno Room, and be tormented by the “Ghost with the Most” in his many forms.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary year, Halloween Horror Nights 2021 will run from Sept. 3 through Oct. 31 at Universal Studios Orlando Resort, and from Sept. 9 through Oct. 31 at Universal Studios Hollywood. Tickets are available here.

Additional scare zones and haunted houses will be revealed over the coming weeks.
