Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights adds Halloween 4 maze

Universal Studios Hollywood has announced that one of the attractions that will be part of their Halloween Horror Nights event this year is a “frightening maze” inspired by the 1988 slasher Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (watch it HERE) – which I count as very cool news, since Halloween 4 is my favorite Halloween sequel. Halloween Horror Nights will begin on Thursday, September 9th and run select nights through Sunday, October 31st.

Tickets can be purchased at THIS LINK, and Universal Studios Hollywood wants you to know that “new ticket options, including the R.I.P. Tour, Ultimate Fear and Frequent Fear passes, provide a one-of-a-kind experience to this year’s most extreme and intensely immersive Halloween event as fans will be terrorized and entertained by new mazes, Terror Tram, scare zones, theme park attractions and a hip hop show.”

Here’s the description of the Halloween 4 maze:

Guests will be stalked at every turn in the Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers maze, based on the classic slasher from Trancas International Films. With his haunting white mask and signature steel knife, the relentless Myers is ready to resume his killing spree and terrorize the people of Haddonfield as he hunts for his niece Jamie to finally seek his revenge.

In addition to that maze, the attractions at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights will include:

– Based on the successful Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions’ film franchise, “Terror Tram: The Ultimate Purge” takes guests on a nightmarish journey into the world of The Purge as they try to survive the night along the world-famous Universal backlot. The annual tradition of The Purge is a one-night event when all crime is legal; however, as the latest film The Forever Purge depicts, members of an underground movement believe that The Purge should be every day – and plan to overtake America through a relentless campaign of mayhem and massacre.
