“Halloween Horror Nights” begins on Friday, September 14, 2018 – Universal Studios Hollywood Welcomes “The First Purge” to Halloween Horror Nights, Inspired by Universal Pictures’ Blockbuster Thriller Now in Theaters

“The First Purge” maze at Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights,” beginning Friday, September 14, 2018

Universal City, Calif. – Behind every tradition lies a revolution. This year, “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood bears witness to “The First Purge” with an all-new maze based on Universal Pictures’ all-new thriller that unleashed the country’s inaugural government-sanctioned lawlessness, making all crime legal once a year for 12 hours.

“Halloween Horror Nights” begins on Friday, September 14, 2018.

Halloween Horror Nights Teaser

The First Purge is now in theatres.

Murder, mayhem and pandemonium are alive and well every year as the annual Purge grips the country, suspending all police, fire and emergency services for 12 consecutive hours as law abiding citizens are transformed into anarchists. Inspired by The First Purge—the movement that began as a simple experiment, this terrifying new “Halloween Horror Nights” maze aligns with the film in establishing the motives that launched the country into chaos.

“The First Purge” maze will reimagine the movie’s premise, greeting guests with pure unadulterated fear as it brings to life the turmoil spawned by vigilantes. It will place guests at the heart of a controversial sociological experiment empowered by the New Founding Fathers of America’s (NFFA) desire to purge the nation of all hatred and crime by, ironically, permitting crime to take place as a means of ridding society of all ills.

Guests will be at the mercy of luck and speed as they attempt to outsmart and outlive the anarchy.

“Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in a living, breathing, three-dimensional world of terror. Featuring an all-new slate of unrivaled film production quality mazes, frightful scare zones and a fully re-imagined “Terror Tram” experience uniquely themed to today’s most definitive horror properties, “Halloween Horror Nights” will taunt, terrorize and torment guests with spine-chilling haunted attractions as part of Southern California’s most extreme Halloween experience.

Updates on “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood are available online at HalloweenHorrorNights.com/Hollywood and on Facebook at “Halloween Horror Nights – Hollywood,”Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter at @HorrorNights as Creative Director John Murdy reveals a running chronicle of exclusive information.

“The Purge” TV series based on the wildly popular franchise will debut on USA Network on September 4, 2018.

Universal Studios Hollywood has just announced “The First Purge” is coming to this year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” line-up!  The maze, based on the blockbuster thriller of the summer, will immerse guests in murder, mayhem and pandemonium.

Below is a recap of the other “Halloween Horror Nights” mazes that have been announced.
