“Come play with us.” Do you remember that? Those 2 creepy twins standing in the hallway of the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining?

Well folks, you will get your very own chance to walk through the Overlook Hotel while screaming “REDRUM” when The Shining Maze comse to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights this fall.

What is Halloween Horror Nights? For those who are unfamiliar with it, here is a rundown:

Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando and Hollywood to become victims inside their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.

Starting on September 15, 2017 to November 4, 2017, a maze based on the film will scare the crap out of you along with several others including one based on American Horror Story at the Orlando park.

The maze will be coming to both Halloween Horror Nights Orlando and Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood.

Here’s a little descrition of The Shining Maze:

“The Shining” maze at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights will provide guests with a unique opportunity to relive some of the film’s most iconic, and sinister, moments.  While venturing through the eerie Overlook Hotel, guests will be thrust into the hotel’s tragic history of murder and madness, bearing witness to caretaker Jack Torrance’s spiraling descent into insanity.  Nightmarish visions will come to life in this macabre maze, overwhelming guests with the “shine” of the murderous, ghostly entities that lurk around every turn – all while trying to escape the wrath of Jack Torrance as he violently succumbs to the hotel’s paranormal forces.

The Shining has been regarded as “a masterpiece of modern horror” by critics and fans alike.  Directed by Stanley Kubrick, the film’s enormous influence on pop culture has been captured throughout a multitude of films, television shows, music and more since its disturbing debut in 1980.
