THE SHINING Maze Comes to Universal Halloween Horror Nights 2017

THE SHINING Maze Comes to Universal Halloween Horror Nights 2017

Halloween Horror Nights at the Universal Studios theme parks in Hollywood and Orlando have become the premiere haunt attractions over the past several years. Although there are many other decent haunts all around the country during the month of October, Universal is unique in that they get the licenses to some of the most well known horror films of all time, and recreate them in terrifying and meticulous detail.

Last year’s Horror Nights featured the debut of a maze based on arguably one of the most revered horror films of all time, The Exorcist, and now it looks like they’re going to top it this year with one based on none other than Stanley Kubrick‘s version of the Stephen King classic The Shining. You can see Universal’s announcement for the brand new The Shining maze (via Bloody Disgusting) in the video down below:

Are you ready to check in at the Overlook Hotel? The Shining has so many iconic moments, from the creepy little girls, to the old lady in the bathroom, to Jack Torrance’s crazy ax wielding chase of his son Danny through the hedge maze, that the folks behind Halloween Horror Nights have their work cut out for them with this one. But based on previous years, I’m sure they can pull it off. Also: if they somehow manage to include that one super weird scene of the guy in the bear suit with the older gentleman, then they score extra points with this horror fan.

Last year’s Halloween Horror Nights not only had The Exorcist, but also mazes for all four iconic movie slashers Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees, Michael Myers and Leatherface, not to mention American Horror Story. Definitely a tough act to follow. But although the other mazes haven’t been announced yet, but with the inclusion of The Shining, it seems they might be able to top last year’s incredible haunt.

Halloween Horror Nights 27 begins September 15th and continues running on select nights through November 4th.
