Succumb to the Horrors of The Shining at Halloween Horror Nights 27

When bringing iconic horror films to life at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, a common question we find ourselves asking is, “How the heck are we going to turn this movie into a haunted house?” But, hey—we’re always up for a challenge.

This year is no different. We’re bringing you The Shining.

There are so many intense and creepy moments packed in the whole film. So we held hands, took a deep breath, and entered the Overlook Hotel.

I just finished looking at some of the house designs and am thrilled by the story we’re telling. It will be the warped psychological thriller you know and love with our own Halloween Horror Nights twist.

We cast the Overlook Hotel as the aggressor and view it as if you have the “shining.” Our goal is to have you constantly doing a double take and give you that, “Did I just see that?” feeling.

After watching this movie for the first time I remember saying, “I would never go into room 237.” So, of course, that’s where we’re going to take you: all the places you shouldn’t go.

You’ll come face-to-face with the murderous, ghostly entities around every corner. And of course, the best part will be trying to escape the sharpened edge of an axe.

I can’t wait for you all to see what’s in store for you with The Shining and this year’s event. You won’t want to miss it, so make sure to grab your tickets now.

    OMG! This is an AWESOME choice!!! Every year I wonder what movies they will use. They seem to have used so many that they may be running out of good ones…this is what goes through my head. But then they come up with obvious ones that I forgot about…LIKE THIS ONE!!! I am so excited about it, can’t wait to tell my son. He’ll be thrilled.
