At this afternoon’s much anticipated Midsummer Scream panel, Hollywood HHN leader John Murdy announced two very exciting attractions coming to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood: a new maze, Monstruos: The Monsters of Latin America and a new scare zone, El Terror De Las Momias.
Monstruos: The Monsters of Latin America
The maze includes a variety of terrifying monsters taken from the lore of Latin American countries. Only three were mentioned during the presentation, but more could be announced at a later date.
The maze will even include a “preshow” featuring an original character interacting with guests on the exterior of the maze entrance.
.@HorrorNights has created an original character for the Monsteous maze! He is called Muerte and he will have the “pre show” outside the maze. He helps the story of the maze along. #UniversalHHN pic.twitter.com/fYzma5RNh6— Theme Park Duo Podcast (@ThemeParkDuo) July 31, 2023
Of course, Universal Studios Hollywood isn’t going to give away all the secrets of this upcoming attraction. But they did share a few highlights and awesome effects we can expect inside…
Wow! This maze sounds incredibly intense, and I am so excited to see it this fall.
New Scare Zone: El Terror De Las Momias
Right outside Monstruos will be a brand new scare zone El Terror De Las Momias.
In this zone, Muerte (the original character from the Monstruos maze) has dug up an ancient Aztec burial ground – connecting the lore between the two attractions!
What an awesome announcement from HHN Hollywood! I adored their La Llorona maze from 2022, and I anticipate the Monstruos house will be just as terrifying. Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood begins on September 7. Check out halloweenhorrornights.com for more information and to buy your tickets.
