The cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space, which spawned a popular scarezone at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights in 2018, is returning to the event this year with an all-new haunted maze.
On July 25, Universal announced that Killer Klowns from Outer Space would be featured at their 2019 Halloween events on both coasts, with themed mazes at both Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood. This will be the Klowns’ second appearance in Orlando—and their Californian debut.
Here’s how Universal describes the new Killer Klowns from Outer Space haunted attraction:
Based on the cult 1980s film favorite, the Killer Klowns from Outer Space mazes will transport guests to the sleepy small town of Crescent Cove, taken over by a pack of murderous clown-like creatures. Guests will be lured by the sweet smell of cotton candy and ice cream and find themselves in an otherworldly circus tent where they’ll come face-to-face with the crazed klowns and their sinister, side-splitting antics. As they make their way through the Big Top Space Ship, guests will witness diabolical klowns making cotton candy cocoons from unsuspecting victims and then realize the joke’s on them—as they are next to become the gooey snack. From one shrieking klown to the next, the mazes will lead guests through the doomed community of Crescent Cove to an eerie amusement park closed for the season. Trapped in a terrifying funhouse full of killer klowns, guests will be left screaming, as there’s no stopping this twisted three-ring circus.
Halloween Horror Nights runs September 6th–November 2nd in Orlando and September 13th–November 3rd in Hollywood. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.
