Because of the pandemic, a full Halloween Horror Nights didn’t take place in 2020, but to the delight of Universal fans everywhere, the event returned in 2021, and because of the high turnout, there are expectations that 2022 could be the biggest year yet.
Halloween Horror Nights Creative Director John Murdy posted on Twitter that they had finished the full treatment for the second maze at Universal Studios Hollywood. He promised to bring some new props that have never been used before at the event.
Finished the complete treatment for maze #2. Very excited about bringing this one to HHN at USH and excited to use some props that have been in our warehouse for years & never been used for the event. Why? They’re very large & very specific. They’ll have to go in before the walls!
