American Horror Story headed for Universal Studios

One of the most horrifying and wickedly gruesome shows in television history is bleeding off the screen.

“American Horror Story,” FX’s critically-acclaimed, Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television series that has terrorised viewers for five suspenseful instalments, will come to life at “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood, beginning in September.

Three chapters of “American Horror Story” will haunt the best, most intense Halloween event in all-new frightening mazes.

Guests will embark on a terrifying journey to become the next doomed residents of Murder House from instalment one, tortured performers in the disturbing and twisted Freak Show from instalment four, and victims of the otherworldly, death-dealing hotel from instalment five.

For the first time ever, guests will venture through Ryan Murphy’s ground-breaking horror anthology, encountering a plethora of iconic scenes and memorable characters designed to jolt them to their core.


Twisted scenes from Murder House will unleash the evil spirits that possess the Harmon estate, spiralling guests through decades of the tortured dead who previously resided there.

In Freak Show, guests will join a troupe of biological misfits in a sinister sideshow where they’ll be stalked by the murderous and deformed Twisty the Clown.

Finally, guests will succumb to the warped desires of The Countess after checking in to the haunted Hotel Cortez, conceived from the beginning as a torture chamber for its customers.

“‘American Horror Story’ is one of the most disturbing television shows ever produced, and with such perverse storylines unfolding with each instalment, ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ is undoubtedly the only place that could create a living version of the nightmares that Ryan Murphy dreams up,” said John Murdy, creative director at Universal Studios Hollywood.

“Plus, as a fan favourite, ‘American Horror Story’ has been the number one requested maze from our guests and we’re excited to let them know that we listened to them and are bringing ‘American Horror Story’ to life.”
