Universal Orlando has announced that “The Haunting of Hill House” will be getting its very own haunted house at this year’s event, which will be held for 42 select nights beginning on September 3 through October 31.
Based on the hit Netflix show’s first season, the house will feature iconic apparitions and locations from the series. This is the second house to “officially” be announced for 2021 after Beetlejuice.
After entering through a facade of the menacing Hill House, guests will come face to face with many of the haunting figures that torment members of the Crain family. According to Universal:
Iconic scenes from the Netflix series will be featured throughout the maze, including the omni-powerful Red Room – the heart of Hill House – and the infamous Hall of Statues, where deceptive powers overtake everyone who enters. Apparitions will appear around every corner, from William Hill – The Tall Man, whose towering stature overwhelms everyone he encounters; to The Ghost in the Basement, who feverishly crawls throughout the bowels of the House in search of his next victim; to The Bent-Neck Lady, whose disturbing scream and ghastly appearance invoke a constant state of unnerving dread.
“The Haunting of Hill House” mazes will test even the bravest guests as they attempt to escape the entanglement of the estate’s eternal stranglehold or succumb to the powerful forces of Hill House – leaving them to wander the endless halls forever… alone.
“I have loved Halloween Horror Nights for so long,” said Flanagan, Creator, Director and Executive Producer of “The Haunting of Hill House.” “Some of my favorite memories of Halloween were made at Universal Studios, screaming and laughing with my friends. It is such an honor to be included among such fantastic Haunts, and I’m so glad that fans will be able to walk the halls of Hill House this Halloween. This is – without a doubt – one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to us at Intrepid. We are so excited to visit the Red Room again – we hope to see you all there!”
While Universal Orlando Resort has only officially announced one other house for this year’s event, based on Beetlejuice, there was a behind-the-scenes video posted late last year that revealed a house titled “Puppet Theatre” for the event as well.
Puppet Theatre is not currently listed on the official website’s roster at this time, however many expect it will “officially” be announced at a later time.
As part of today’s new house announcement, a new limited edition T-Shirt was added to the Five & Dime store in Universal Studios Florida. It features a design based on The Haunting of Hill House.
It’s possible that we could see additional new product releases to tie into the remaining house announcements in the coming weeks, as we get closer to the start of the event in September.
