Continually ranked as the best Halloween theme park experience, Halloween Horror Nights offers an immersive, frightening experience for guests. From haunted houses to scare actors, guests will have to be careful around every turn. This Halloween event isn’t for the sacredly cats.
According to Universal Media, the new Shining maze will incorporate many of the iconic moments from the classic horror film. The new maze is described as follows:
"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."
