Halloween Horror Nights Plans Scream 4 Terror Tram

Arriving this fall at Universal Studios Hollywood

Universal Studios Hollywood has just announced a new Scream-based ride as part of their “Halloween Horror Nights”.

Dubbed “Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life”, the experience will aim to replicate Scream 4‘s “movie-within-a-movie” theme, unleashing Ghostface on the studio backlot, introducing guests to the fictional Stab slasher film franchise and offering them a chance to take a peek at Stab 8, said to be “shooting on location on the backlot.” Details from the official press release are as follows:

“Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life” casts guests as victims in this living horror film and elevates the “Halloween Horror Nights” experience to astounding new levels of blood-curdling realism.

To create the ultimate “Halloween Horror Nights” nightmare, Universal Studios Hollywood assembled a horror “dream team” of filmmakers and stars who are serving as creative consultants to Universal’s Creative Director, John Murdy. The team includes director, writer, producer and actor Eli Roth, who will present the new maze, “Eli Roth’s Hostel: Hunting Season,” the legendary rocker Alice Cooper, who will present “Alice Cooper: Welcome to My Nightmare,” and multi-platinum recording artist and filmmaker Rob Zombie who returns with “Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses: In 3D ZombieVision.” “The Thing: Assimilation,” inspired by Universal Pictures’ upcoming thriller, will add to the Hollywood horror clout.

“Halloween Horror Nights” 2011 will bring unprecedented star power to an array of unrivaled, film production quality mazes uniquely themed to today’s most definitive horror properties and deliver the most compelling, spine-chilling, haunted attractions. All-new terror filled “scare zones,” original shows and the popular “Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life” will be among the “Halloween Horror Nights” offerings.

The theme park’s favorite thrill-ride attractions will also remain open for “Halloween Horror Nights,” one with a menacing twist. “Jurassic Park® In the Dark” makes its seasonal debut, while guests can still enjoy favorites like “The Simpsons RideTM” and “Revenge of the MummySM – The Ride.”

Updates on “Halloween Horror Nights” are available at Halloween Horror Nights.com and also on Twitter and Facebook, as Creative Director John Murdy reveals a running chronicle of exclusive information. Fans are invited to follow John Murdy on Twitter or via Facebook.

“Halloween Horror Nights” will take place on select nights beginning September 23 and continue on September 24, 30; October 1,7, 8,9, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31.
