Orlando Attractions Update – The Purge is coming to the New York section of HHN 24.
Much to the delight of hard core HHN fans it will feature masked characters from both films and will have chainsaws!
Here is Universal’s official blog post:
Commencing at the siren, any and all crime, including murder, will be legal for 12 continuous hours…
Hearing the sirens and that broadcast just sends chills down my spine.
Hi, HHN fans. I’m Lora Wallace, and I’m the Show Director for the street experiences at Halloween Horror Nights. I’m excited to reveal to you our second street experience that will be taking over part of Universal Studios. Prepare yourself as The Purge: Anarchy descends upon Halloween Horror Nights 24 in a new, terrifying scare-zone.
We were intrigued by the idea of bringing The Purge to our event when we heard about the new film. When we received the script forThe Purge: Anarchy, we were immediately sold on the idea. In the film, citizens are acting on their annual right to “Purge” and turning their city into a place of complete chaos and destruction. We instantly knew that our New York backlot provided the architecture and expansive nature needed to make this a reality.
We’re actually going to be bringing a combination of both the first movie and the new movie to life in this scare-zone, so you’ll be met face-to-face with the iconic masked characters from both films. You’ll find yourself in the middle of the turmoil and chaos of The Purge taking place.
Everyday citizens will be transformed into violent psychopaths, chainsaw wielding paramilitary men and an elegant women ready to auction off the unsuspecting during this period of government-sanctioned lawlessness. But be careful… for you might find yourself becoming the target of those looking to Purge.
Now, prepare yourself for The Purge and Halloween Horror Nights 24 by seeing The Purge: Anarchy, now in theaters.
OK…….off to the movies we go then! See you out there, we’ll be the ones running in the opposite direction!
