New House Revealed for Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 2023 is ‘The Last of Us’

Halloween Horror Nights 2023 - The Last of Us

It’s not even summer solstice, but Universal Orlando has thrown down the Halloween gauntlet by announcing a new house coming to Halloween Horror Nights 2023 will be themed to “The Last of Us.

Naughty Dog and PlayStation’s award-winning post-pandemic video game comes to life for the first time at Halloween Horror Nights, promising post-apocalyptic scares.

Set in a ravaged civilization, where Infected and hardened survivors run rampant, “The Last of Us” video game, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, has captivated audiences since its release. It is also the subject of a hit live-action HBO series.

“The Last of Us” haunted houses on both coasts will propel guests into a world of carnage and mayhem as they follow in the footsteps of the game’s protagonists, Joel and Ellie, who endure a brutal journey in a world overtaken by a fungal virus that turns humans into various forms of a new threat known as the Infected.

As guests encounter these Infected in their various forms – Runners, Stalkers and Clickers – along with The Hunters, a band of hostile humans, they will need to navigate the Pittsburgh Quarantine Zone, including iconic locations from the video game such as the creepy and desolate The Hotel Grand and a labyrinth of dark and dank tunnels, in a desperate attempt to escape and survive.

“We are excited to bring ‘The Last of Us’ to life in a terrifying haunted house that is true to the spirit of this popular video game featuring our heroes, Joel and Ellie, Clickers and more,” said Lora Sauls, Assistant Director, Creative Development and Show Direction at Universal Orlando Resort.
