We may not have officially kicked off summer, but that doesn’t mean it’s too soon to start planning for Halloween. Specifically, it’s time to think about this year’s Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights. And this year, expect to hear some disturbing clicking sounds in their latest Haunted House. Because Naughty Dog has revealed that their iconic game (now HBO sensation) The Last of Us will get its own Halloween Horror Nights haunted house this fall.
The Last of Us haunted house will welcome guests at Universal Studios Orlando on September 1. The Universal Studios Hollywood version opens on September 7. Watch the super creepy announcement video:
The description for The Last of Us Halloween Horror Nights experience is as follows:
The Last of Us haunted houses on both coasts will propel guests into a world of carnage and mayhem as they follow in the footsteps of the game’s protagonists, Joel and Ellie, who endure a brutal journey in a world overtaken by a fungal virus that turns humans into various forms of a new threat known as the Infected. As guests encounter the Infected – Runners, Stalkers and Clickers – along with The Hunters, a band of hostile humans, they will need to navigate the Pittsburgh Quarantine Zone, including iconic locations from the video game such as the creepy and desolate The Hotel Grand and a labyrinth of dark and dank tunnels, in a desperate attempt to escape and survive.
Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood John Murdy has longed to include The Last of Us for a long time. In a statement, he said, “The world inside the game offers a multitude of suspenseful and horrifying opportunities.” Thanks to the popularity of both the game and the TV series, we expect the lines for this one to be substantial. We expect more HHN announcements in the weeks to come. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit Universal’s site.
