Every year there’s new additions announced for Universal’s yearly Halloween event, Halloween Horror Nights. This year, an all-time classic makes its way to the event for the very first time.
It’s been announced that the beloved 1984 classic Ghostbusters is making its debut at Halloween Horror Nights this fall. You can find all the details in the full announcement and check out a promo video for the news below.
For the first time ever, Sony Picturesâ€™ classic film, Ghostbusters, is coming to â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood â€“ bringing the most memorable scenes, characters and supernatural spirits from one of pop cultureâ€™s most iconic films to life in immersive mazes based off the 1984 classic at the nationâ€™s premier Halloween events, starting this September.
Ghostbusters has entertained generations with its comedic yet frightening tale of four paranormal investigators on their quest to eradicate supernatural threats from creating chaos throughout New York City. As the film marks its milestone 35th anniversary, guests will have the unique opportunity to live the action and terrifying scares they have seen in the hit film when it comes to life at Universal Studiosâ€™ â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ in Orlando and Hollywood.
In each maze, guests will follow in the footsteps of the Ghostbusters â€“ Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston â€“ as they venture through artfully recreated scenes from the film, including the firehouse, New York Public Library and the Temple of Gozer, as an army of ghoulish spirits, hideous specters and ectoplasm-dripping phantasms attack from every corner. As they delve deeper into the maze, guests will come face-to-face with an array of paranormal creatures, from the voracious Slimer to the all-powerful Gozer the Gozerian and in its ultimate destructor form â€“ the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, to brave the demonic spirits and survive the night.
Universal Studiosâ€™ â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 25 years, guests from around the world have visited â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ to become victims inside their own horror film. Multiple movie-quality mazes based on iconic horror television shows, films and original stories come to life season after season. And, the streets of each parkâ€™s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing scare-actors lunge from every darkened corner.
â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ begins Friday, September 6 in Orlando and on Friday, September 13 in Hollywood. Additional details about the events will be revealed soon.
