We’re counting down the days ’til spooky season and with Halloween Horror Nights on the horizon, the excitement just keeps on growing! It’s a tradition we look forward to every year, as we pack our bags and calm our nerves in anticipation for spine-tingling mazes inspired by the biggest horror names.
This year, Universal Orlando is unleashing infectious action with the announcement of an all-new haunted house inspired by ‘The Last Of Us,’ the video game-turned-HBO show that once dominated our screens. Would you dare step into a part of this frightening dystopian future overtaken by “zombies”? Well, if the answer is yes, keep on reading!
Like Joel and Ellie, played by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the series, the attraction will thrust you into “a world of carnage and mayhem” as you make your way through a labyrinth full of Runners, Stalkers, Clickers and even the band of hostile humans known as The Hunters.
Keep your eyes and ears open for clicking sounds as you navigate iconic locations like the Pittsburgh Quarantine Zone, creepy Hotel Grand and dark and dank tunnels in this Cordyceps-infected world.
Check out a preview of the chilling house below:
This was the first house theme announced for HHN’s 2023 event, and it arrives in celebration of the Naughty Dog and PlayStation game’s 10th anniversary.
“As a massive fan – and frequent attendee – of Halloween Horror Nights, we are honored to have ‘The Last of Us’ included in this year’s lineup,” Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann said in a release. “It has been an incredible thrill for us at Naughty Dog to collaborate with Universal, bringing the world of the game to life, focusing on even the tiniest details that our fans know so well.”
Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando kicks off on Friday, September 1, with Universal Hollywood following suit on September 7 (they, too, will have ‘The Last Of Us’ house). Other terrifying houses you can expect this year include “Stranger Things 4,” “The Exorcist: Believer,” “Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count,” and “Universal Monsters: Unmasked.”
