Halloween Horror Nights is going old school for its final maze this year. Universal Studios Hollywood announced Wednesday that classic Universal Monsters will haunt their own attraction at the park's annual spook season event. Among the iconic characters from Universal's library that will be featured are Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man, Dracula's Bride, and The Phantom of the Opera.

An original music score for the maze is being produced and composed by former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash (aka Saul Hudson). “Similar to the way music affects a film, I wanted to compose a score for the legions of infamous characters featured in the maze to elicit a greater sense of terror for the guests," Slash said in a press release. "In the end, the goal is to ultimately make the guests feel as if they are playing an integral role in a classic monster movie.”

Halloween Horror Nights is a long-running fall event at Universal's Los Angeles, Orlando, Singapore, and Japan parks. Guests can experience a number of themed haunted houses, mazes and other attractions. Among the previously announced plans for 2018 are mazes based on Stranger Things and The Purge. This year's event begins Friday, Sept. 14, and runs through the Halloween season. Information and tickets can be found at halloweenhorrornights.com.
