Michael Myers Returns To Universal Hollywood For Halloween Horror Nights

With Universal Orlando making their final announcements for their Halloween Horror Nights, it was only natural that their Hollywood counterpart would be doing the same shortly after. Universal Hollywood have announced tonight that Michael Myers will be returning to stalk park guests this year as well as announcing Terror Tram: The Ultimate Purge & a fully immersive The Walking Dead experience.

Evil has returned. Michael Myers has escaped, and he’s on his way back to Haddonfield spreading blood and mayhem in his wake. Your only hope is Dr. Loomis – Myers’ fire-scarred former psychiatrist. But will he get there before it’s too late? It’s clear that this time, Michael Myers is unstoppable.

“Guests will be stalked at every turn in the “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” maze, based on the classic slasher from Trancas International Films. With his haunting white mask and signature steel knife, the relentless Myers is ready to resume his killing spree and terrorise the people of Haddonfield as he hunts for his niece Jamie to finally seek his revenge."

Also announced today is the return of Universal Hollywood's Terror Tram, which will take guests at this years event into the dark world of The Purge.

The Terror Tram is back. Unfortunately for you, some of the most iconic Purgers from each of the terrifying Purge films have taken over and are running rampant. It’s every man and woman for themselves as masked and costumed marauders are out to ambush anyone outside during Purge hours. So climb aboard the Terror Tram at your own risk. Because once you get off the tram it’s no rules. No laws. No escape.

“Based on the successful Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions’ film franchise, “Terror Tram: The Ultimate Purge” takes guests on a nightmarish journey into the world of The Purge as they try to survive the night along the world-famous Universal backlot. The annual tradition of The Purge is a one-night event when all crime is legal; however, as the latest film The Forever Purge depicts, members of an underground movement believe that The Purge should be every day – and plan to overtake America through a relentless campaign of mayhem and massacre.


The Walking Dead is set to make a comeback at the annual Halloween event in Hollywood as well. With the show drawing to a close with its final season, it's a great addition to this years Halloween Horror Nights.

"Enter the post-apocalyptic world of AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Prepare to fight for survival in a fully immersive journey as you navigate through a world overrun by walkers with an insatiable appetite for the living. Follow in the footsteps of the human survivors as you battle your way through nightmarish iconic landscapes that bring the most popular cable TV show in history to life!"


This year’s disturbing line-up for the Universal Studios Hollywood event also includes:

  • “The Haunting of Hill House,” based on Netflix’s critically-acclaimed supernatural thriller.

  • “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” a chilling maze featuring a demented Leatherface and his unrelenting chainsaw.

  • “Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives,” inspired by Universal Pictures’ cinematic monsters with an all-original story about one of the studio’s most infamous creatures. GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, SLASH collaborates with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose an original score for the maze and scare zone.

  • “The Exorcist” maze will possess guests as they live the tormented aberrations experienced by Regan and her determined mother.

  • “The Curse of Pandora’s Box” is an original concept maze inspired by the most fearsome creatures in Greek mythology.

  • Award-winning hip hop dance crew Jabbawockeez is back with nightly performances of its high-energy show featuring their gravity-defying dance moves, elevated by special effects and pulse-pounding music.

In addition to that all-new scare zones designed to taunt, terrorise and torment guests as they navigate the darkness from one frightening maze to another will come to life throughout the theme park with these chilling experiences:

  • “Universal Monsters: Silver Scream Queenz,” adjacent to the “Bride of Frankenstein Lives” maze, is the first all-female scare zone featuring The Bride of Frankenstein, Anck-Su-Namun The Mummy, Dracula’s Daughter and She-Wolf of London.
