Classic Monsters return to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

April 29, 2019, 11:51 AM · The Classic Monsters are coming back to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights this fall. And this time, they're hitting Orlando as well as Hollywood.

The Universal theme parks on both coasts announced today that they will be featuring Universal's Classic Monsters at their Halloween events this year. Here's the hype video from Universal Studios Florida, where Dracula, the Wolf Man, the Mummy, Frankenstein's Monster, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon will be in the house.

The full Monsters line-up got a maze at Hollywood's event last fall, so this year's event on the west coast will feature "Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man."

Loosely based on Universal’s 1943 horror movie of the same name, this reimagined tale for the 21st century takes guests on a terrifying journey that bears witness to a deadly confrontation between these two horror icons and the epic battle that rages between them. Guests will follow in the footsteps of the Frankenstein Monster, lured by exotic music towards a nearby gypsy camp while desperately seeking sanctuary from a mob of angry villagers determined to destroy him. It is within the gypsy encampment that the Frankenstein Monster meets The Wolf Man and where the madness begins as guests are led along a path of destruction through the murky Moors, to a creepy cemetery and into the smoldering ruins of Castle Frankenstein and its icy cellars beneath.

Guitarist Slash is on board once again to create an original score for the maze. Here is our video of last year's Universal Studios Hollywood Classic Monsters maze, to get you in the mood for this year's productions.

Universal previously announced that a house/maze based on seasons two and three of Netflix's "Stranger Things" will be coming to both events this year. In addition, Orlando has announced an original IP house, Nightingales: Blood Pit while Hollywood has announced a Holidayz in Hell maze. Halloween Horror Nights starts September 6 in Orlando and on Friday, September 13 in Hollywood, running select nights through November 2.

I'm look forward to seeing the monster franchise return after a hiatus. I've always found them to be a solid haunted house theme.
