So far, we’ve already announced that Halloween Horror Nights XXII will be taking on Silent Hill, The Walking Dead, and Alice Cooper. Now it’s been revealed that a 3D haunted house designed by illusionists Penn & Teller will debut this year at Universal Studios Orlando for the annual event.
“Penn & Teller New(kd) Las Vegas” will call on the duo’s talents to tell the tale of a dark, dilapidated and radioactive version of Las Vegas. The maze will feature the best of Vegas – showgirls, slot machines, little white wedding chapel, all-you-can-eat buffet, and more – all glowing with a toxic green hue.
That’s right…there will be zombies.
Entertaining audiences for years, Penn & Teller have been performing illusions at The Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for over 10 years. This will be the first time they’ve designed a haunted house for Universal.
Halloween Horror Nights is an after-hours, separate-ticket event. It takes over the entire Universal Studios Orlando theme park with haunted-house mazes, shows and scare zones. It operates 25 select nights from Sept. 21 to Oct. 31, 2012.
Tickets are on sale online at www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com/orlando.
