The Shining invades Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights
Ask any horror fan, no matter how hardcore, what the scariest horror films of all time is and Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 haunted house and haunted dad classic The Shining will end up on many of their lists. The intense and surreal fever dream version of Stephen King‘s novel is a titan of terror cinema and has not lost any of its power to chill the blood. Now, for the first time ever, The Shining come alive and bring unspeakable terror to the legendary Halloween Horror Nights in terrifying new mazes opening at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, beginning this September.
The Shining maze will provide guests with a unique opportunity to relive some of the film’s most iconic, and sinister, moments. While venturing through the eerie Overlook Hotel, guests will be thrust into the hotel’s tragic history of murder and madness, bearing witness to caretaker Jack Torrance’s spiraling descent into insanity. Nightmarish visions will come to life in this macabre maze, overwhelming guests with the “shine” of the murderous, ghostly entities that lurk around every turn – all while trying to escape the wrath of Jack Torrance as he violently succumbs to the hotel’s paranormal forces.
Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood and Orlando to become victims inside their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.
