Today that Universal Studios Orlando for this year’s HHN 26 just dropped the bombshell of the highly anticipated news for scare zones and original named houses. Many hardcore and casual fans were wondering of when were going to these announcements but, today we finally did. Here’s a big breakdown of each house and scare zones for this year’s spooky and frightful event for HHN 26. All this information is being cited and sourced from the Universal Studios Orlando Blog.
Lunatics Playground-You Won’t Stand A Chance
“While Jack’s away, Chance has unleashed the horrors of her imagination. Her twisted delusions and reality are continuously blurred in a 3D playground of carnage. When the music box plays, the world shifts to her sinister theatre of the mind. But when the alarm starts ringing, Chance is thrown back into the brutal reality of her incarceration.”

Ghost Town-The Curse of Lighting Gulch
“When lightning strikes, the curse of Lightning Gulch comes to life and this ghostly town appears. These doomed souls—who once went searching for gold—found death and destruction. And now they seek others to join them. As thunder cracks, flashes of lightning will lead your way through this treacherous wild west nightmare. Good luck!”

“An ancient evil has surfaced and immortal beings from the past have returned to rule mankind. It was only a matter of time until “The Ancient Ones” were unearthed. Now these makers of chaos are loose from the pits of hell—and the whole world will pay.”

In my previous post there was a map layout that was all over the web and social media for this year’s HHN for the IP houses and original houses. Cobweb as it turns out was a code name for now the announced original house for “Tomb of the Ancients” as you can see down below:
Now we are onto scare zones, the blog didn’t provide any images or video of how they are going to look like but this is the information as they describe it as.
–Survive or Die:” A global catastrophe has ruined Earth’s atmosphere. One group of survivors secured a machine that provides clean air. The two other surviving groups are on the hunt to gain control of the machine and are recruiting new members to help them. You can either join them or feed their staving ranks. Which will you choose?”
–Banshee’s Lair: “Travel deep into the forest where evil spirits and horrific creatures of the ancient world roam free. Mother Nature’s magical barrier of vines has been torn away and the modern world has found the entrance to this corrupted grave“.
–Dead Man’s Wharf: “When a fishing vessel named Annabel Lee never returned to the harbor and was lost forever, the wharf was left uninhabited as a memorial to her. Now, a strange fog has rolled into the village. And the long-lost fishermen’s spirits seek to punish the town that left them“.
–Vamp 1955: “Welcome to Hollywood High School’s 1955 Homecoming Parade. Everything is in place, until the greasers roll into town with fangs instead of switchblades. It’s a procession of chaos with vampires ready to take a bite out of anyone in sight“.
–A Chance In Hell: “Get ready for the audition of a lifetime. Chance may be locked away, but that hasn’t stopped her. As the alarms ring and the bloody remains of those who tried to stop her lie around, she’s busy recruiting cellmates to join her biggest act yet. (I hope I get chosen!)”
Last not but at least but the Shows for more frightful nighttime entertainment!
–Academy of Villains: House of Fear: “Join this high energy performance troupe of inmates in an explosion of insanity that will thrust you into a realm of mayhem and maniacal terror featuring dance and specialty acts. The Show Must Go On!”
–Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure: “No Halloween Horror Nights would be complete with these “excellent” dudes! The Wyld Stallyns return with an all-new Halloween adventure.” Rock on dudes!!!

So that’s it!! All of the houses are announced and some of the scare zones but…there is one house left to be announced since right now it’s 9 houses so far. In which in my mind and everyone’s guesses it has to be American Horror Story but, nothing is confirmed at this point till we get a post or announcement by Universal Orlando themselves.
