Universal Parks & Resorts has started off the new year with a frighteningly exciting announcement! Known for its popular Halloween Horror Nights events at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, the themed entertainment company is introducing a brand-new, year-round experience in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new addition marks the first time that Universal has created a permanent horror experience beyond its theme parks.
Within its 110,000 square-foot area, Universal's new experience will encompass and embrace the entirety of the horror genre using the creativity and innovation of the creators behind the ghastly Halloween Horror Nights.
As part of a 20-acre expansion of Las Vegas' immersive AREA15 entertainment district, the permanent horror exhibit will transform upbeat eateries and bars into a haunted neighborhood riddled with fan-favorite ghosts and ghouls. This revamped space will revive classic horror cinema and integrate today's terrifying tales in a more immersive way than ever before. Long time fans of classic film characters, including Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolf Man, can now also experience the thrills behind modern scary movies created by famous filmmakers such as Jordan Peele and Jason Blum at the same time.
To keep the scares going, the experience will constantly change its experiential art and entertainment offerings. The park will also be continuously updated with different attractions and merchandise, especially during seasonal events.
More details, including the space's opening date, will be revealed in time. Stay tuned for more frogtastic updates!
