Get ready to play some Graveyard Games at Universal Orlando

August 8, 2019, 11:31 AM · The announcements keep coming with Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights now less than a month away. Today, the resort announced its final original concept for this year's event at Universal Studios Florida.

Graveyard Games is the ninth of 10 houses announced for the event and the last of the four original concepts among the houses. From Universal's press release:

In the Ascension Parish Cemetery, it’s normal to find teens playing amongst the tombstones. You’ll find yourself witnessing the repercussions of the disrespectful antics of two teens who have awakened the spirits of the dead.... Ghosts of every shape and form will rise from the tombstones to exact their revenge as you try to escape the maze of crumbling tombstones and mausoleums.... And in the end, you’ll find out what happened to those who set out to deface the cemetery.

Universal also is adding a social media element to this house. Guests will be able to chat with characters from the house via the Halloween Horror Nights Facebook page on the Facebook Messenger app.

Halloween Horror Nights begins this year on Friday, September 6 in Orlando. Previously announced original mazes in Orlando include Yeti: Terror of the Yukon, Nightingales: Blood Pit, and Depths of Fear, while this year's IP houses are Jordan Peele's Us, Ghostbusters, Stranger Things, Universal Monsters, and Killer Klowns from Outer Space... with one final house yet to be revealed.

After several years of amazing productions, but disappointing scares, at Hollywood Horror Nights, I’m jumping states to see what Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights is all about. If this doesn’t rejuvenate my holiday thrilling spirit, maybe over to the Warner Bros studio lot...if they’re even doing mazes again?

You should try Queen Mary, that's my fav of the SoCal biggies.
Like you said USH has great production value.....but the crowds limit the scares & experience.

Knotts can be fun, but it's definitely quantity over quality sometimes.
