Fox brings American Horror Story to Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights

Guests will journey through the Murder House from series one, the Freak Show from series four and the Hotel from series five.

20th Century Fox Consumer Products is launching an American Horror Story maze at Universal Studios.

Based on the hit FX TV series, the American Horror Story maze will launch at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, from Friday, September 16th.

Twisted scenes from Murder House will unleash the evil spirits that possess the Harmon estate, in Freak Show, guests will join a troupe of biological misfits in a sinister sideshow where they’ll be stalked by the murderous and deformed Twisty the Clown. Finally, guests will succumb to the warped desires of The Countess after checking in to the haunted Hotel Cortez.

“American Horror Story is one of the most disturbing television shows ever produced, and with such perverse storylines unfolding with each installment, Halloween Horror Nights is undoubtedly the only place that could create a living version of the nightmares that Ryan Murphy dreams up,” said John Murdy, creative director at Universal Studios Hollywood and executive producer of Halloween Horror Nights.

“Plus, as a fan favourite, American Horror Story has been the number one requested maze from our guests and we’re excited to let them know that we listened to them and are bringing American Horror Story to life.”

Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights see the parks transformed into highly-themed scare zones. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on anything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.
