House #1 Name: After Life Death's Vengeance

House Location: Sprung Tent 2

House Description: Serial killer Bobby "The Blade" is about to meet Ole' Sparky. 2000 volts are going to send him to a horrific realm of pain. His victims have waited an eternity for vengeance. They're bound to turn Bobby’s afterlife into an unimaginable, infernal torment.

House #2 Name: The Cabin In The Woods

House Location: Soundstage 21A (SS21A)

House Description: Experience a live recreation of the film that ripped the horror genre inside out. Beneath the cabin’s rustic appearance lies a secret facility that unleashes terrifying beings that you thought only existed in nightmares.

House #3 Name: Evil Dead

House Location: Soundstage 24

House Description: Relive "The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience" as gruesome Deadites try to possess your soul. There is nowhere to hide as every creaking floorboard and tangled vine is just waiting to pull you down, making you one with the Evil Dead.

House #4 Name: Havoc: Derailed

House Location: Disaster Overflow Queue (B67)

House Description: Hang on tight aboard a militaristic train convoy that’s secretly transporting the “Dogs of War” — a genetically engineered super-soldier outfit. These bloodthirsty maniacs are bent on mayhem and destruction, with their sights set on twisting the metal of a speeding train. This is Havoc!

House #5 Name: Urban Legends: La Llorona

House Location: Sprung Tent 1

House Description: She is known as the weeping woman. Her legend is one of tragedy... and of murder. She drowned her children in the cold, watery depths and now torments all who hear her with icy, mournful cries. Forced to walk the earth for eternity, she seeks others to share her pain and suffering, now and forever.

House #6 Name: Resident Evil: Escape From Raccoon City

House Location: Soundstage 21B (SS21B)

House Description: Raccoon City is overrun with Umbrella Corporation’s most terrifying experiments, and the only option is complete destruction. You’ll need to duck and dodge Lickers, Hunters, and Nemesis himself if you want any chance of escaping Capcom’s video game terrors before missiles send everything back to hell.

House #7 Name: The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven

House Location: Parade Building (B79)

House Description: Walk in the footsteps of the survivors as Season 3 of AMC’s horror hit relentlessly attacks you from all sides. Stay alert—walkers could trap you anywhere along your journey from the town of Woodbury to the claustrophobic confines of the derelict prison.

House #9 Name: An American Werewolf In London

House Location: Soundstage 22

House Description: Based on the John Landis horror classic, you’ll travel to the Slaughtered Lamb, experience the gruesome wolf attack on the moors and live the chaos of Piccadilly Circus. Beware the moon because tonight it brings only death.



For the first time ever, Universal dedicated the entire HHN street experience to AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Around every corner you encountered iconic scenes from all 3 seasons of the show, while trying to avoid blood-thirsty walkers.

"AMC's The Walking Dead has overtaken the streets of Universal Studios®. From Atlanta to the forests and into Woodbury, you’ll have to fight your way through some of the most iconic locations in the show if you want to survive the night."

The Fall of Atlanta

Location: New York Streets

The smell of death is in the air as you make your way past an iconic tank, sandbag barriers, and decayed rotting corpses on your journey through this decimated city. But be warned—the city’s not empty.


Location: Central Park

Tread carefully through these woods, as you never know who you might encounter. Lurking deep in the hidden depths are unforgettable scenes and characters from Seasons 1, 2 and 3.

Survivor’s Camp

Location: KidZone Entrance

There’s no one telling ghost stories at this derelict campsite, but there are plenty of undead. Will you dare to go closer to the eerily abandoned RV? Keep your wits about you or you might become a ghost story yourself.

The Farm

Location: Mel's Drive-In Area

Something’s burning and it’s not a Sunday roast. Gasoline fumes ignite your senses as you encounter the smoldering remains of a singed country farm. See and smell the putrid barn, the red tractor, and more as you learn what’s causing that horrifying stench.


Location: Hollywood Boulevard

Turn around and live—proceed and face your fate. Stick together as you head down this street, because the spiked barriers are there for a reason. If you refuse to heed the spray-painted warnings, you’re in for a terrifying walk that will feel like an eternity.
