According to Behind the Thrills, “The Purge Election Year” is coming to HHN 2016 as a mega scare zone.
It’ll not just be a street, but multiple dedicated section of the park encompassing Universal Plaza and Parisian Plaza as the epicenter. LOTS of actors, and thematic details. The purge will also be featured on the Lower Lot as well as the Opening Scaremony. Nothing on this scare has ever been done in Hollywood, but a few years back HHN Orlando featured a park-wide Walking Dead scarezone. This will be a similar scale but themed completely to all of the Purge movies.
The Purge has had a presence at HHN since 2013, and to get an idea of what to expect for this year, check out some of our videos from past experiences at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Orlando.
