Immersive Horror Hits Vegas


Immersive Horror Hits Vegas, The first permanent horror attraction from Universal Destinations & Experiences, "Universal Horror Unleashed," is poised to send thrill-seekers into a never-ending state of terror. The terrifying idea, which was unveiled today, will make its spooky home at Area15 in Las Vegas, where guests would be submerged in a ghastly world of spooky restaurants and bone-chilling bar spaces. With this project, Universal is launching its innovative immersive horror entertainment format and ensuring a steady stream of fright through exclusive items and seasonal events.

Page Thompson, President of New Ventures at Universal Destinations & Experiences, states that "Universal Horror Unleashed" offers year-round spooky enjoyment in Las Vegas and is a distinctive way to enthralling horror fans. This horror refuge, the cornerstone tenant of Area15's 20-acre expansion, is set to revolutionize the entertainment landscape of the city.

Beyond Las Vegas, Universal is working on projects such as a family-friendly theme park in Texas with lush landscaping and immersive themed areas. Furthermore, the much awaited Epic Universe theme park in Orlando, scheduled to open in 2025, promises state-of-the-art technology for a flawless visitor experience, including robotics, drone technology, and facial recognition.

Universal is regarded as a pioneer in the horror genre, and its legacy is still growing thanks to classic figures like the Wolf Man, the Mummy, and the Frankenstein's monster. Partnerships with directors like Jordan Peele, James Wan, and Jason Blum show their dedication to reinventing contemporary horror.

Now in its 32nd year, Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights highlights the franchise's lasting influence with spine-tingling attractions like "Universal Monsters," "Five Nights at Freddy's," "The Exorcist: Believer," "Chucky," and "The Purge." "Horror Unleashed" from Universal is expected to take scary entertainment to new heights, engrossing viewers with its dynamic and immersive horrorscape.
