“Poltergeist” maze announced for Halloween Horror Nights 2018 at Universal Studios Florida, Hollywood

in Theme Parks, Universal Orlando, Universal Studios Hollywood


They’re heeeeere. The 1980s horror classic “Poltergeist” is joining Halloween Horror Nights 2018 as a new haunted maze for both Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood.

The mazes will lure guests to the Freeling family house built atop a cemetery where malicious ghosts threaten the lives within.  From the underground graveyard to ghostly apparitions, guests will come face to face with infamous scenes from the film including the iconic flickering TV screen, menacing Beast from beyond and pool filled with floating corpses. As guests cross into the ‘light,’ they will find themselves surrounded by a surreal landscape of vanishing walls, floating furniture and a creepy clown with a menacing smile.  In a rush against time, guests will be forced to make it back to the world of the living or forever be trapped…


Directed by Tobe Hooper and produced by Steven Speilberg, “Poltergeist” has been scaring audiences since 1982. The new maze at Halloween Horror Nights promises to bring guests into the film’s iconic, terrifying scenes to encounter memorable characters.

Halloween Horror Nights 2018 runs from September 14 – November 3. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the official website.
