American Horror Story to Bring Your Nightmares to Life with Universal Studios Mazes

Get details on the terrifying new attraction

Sadie Gennis

If you ever wanted to be terrorized by the Harmon's haunted estate, Fraulein Elsa's Cabinet of Curiosities or the Hotel Cortez IRL, you're in luck: Universal Studios is opening an American Horror Story maze just in time for Halloween.

Beginning on Friday, Sept. 16, fans will be able to venture through one horrifying maze based on three seasons of the FX franchise as part of Universal's "Halloween Horror Nights" at both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort.

In the Murder Houseportion, guests will be haunted by the tortured spirits trapped in the Harmon's house. In the Freak Show section, they'll join a sideshow troupe being stalked by Twisty the Clown. And in the part based on Hotel, guests will be forced to succumb to the Countess' deadly desires.

"American Horror Story is one of the most disturbing television shows ever produced, and with such perverse storylines unfolding with each installment, 'Halloween Horror Nights' is undoubtedly the only place that could create a living version of the nightmares that Ryan Murphy dreams up," John Murdy, creative director at Universal Studios Hollywood, said in a statement. "Plus, as a fan favorite, American Horror Story has been the number one requested maze from our guests and we're excited to let them know that we listened to them and are bringing American Horror Story to life."

The mysterious sixth installment of American Horror Story premieres Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10/9c on FX.
