Universal's House of Horrors

Universal's House of Horrors is an attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. It is the fourth variation of a walk-through maze housed in the "Stage 13" building. (Previous themes featured Chicken Run, The Mummy and Van Helsing: Fortress Dracula). The "Stage 13" building was previously home to different restaurants before being transformed into an attraction.

This attraction features real-live performers dressed up as characters from Universal's horror films including The Mummy, The Wolfman, Chucky from Child's Play, Mother Bates from Psycho, Zombies from Dawn of the Dead, Frankenstein, The Phantom of the Opera, Nosferatu, and other characters. The performers inside the maze jump out and scare guests as they walk through the various "sets" from the films. The performers do not touch the guests, and the guests must not touch the performers.

The attraction opened in March 2007. During Universal's annual Halloween Horror Nights the attraction features an increase in the number of performers, also known as "scaractors".

The attraction takes about 10 minutes to walk through. It is not recommended for children under the age of thirteen due to violent and scary situations. It is also not advised for those who suffer from heart, back or neck problems, claustrophobia, fear of heights, fear of the dark or those sensitive to sudden and loud noises.
