Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights is bringing the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic PlayStation video game, The Last of Us, to life as an all-new haunted house. This immersive experience will be available at Universal Orlando Resort starting on Friday, September 1, and at Universal Studios Hollywood starting on Thursday, September 7.
Immerse Yourself in the world of The Last of Us
The Last of Us haunted house invites guests to step into a ravaged civilization, where Infected and hardened survivors roam the desolate world. Inspired by the hit video game that celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, the haunted house captures the chilling atmosphere and thrilling narrative that has captivated audiences worldwide.
Join Joel and Ellie on a Brutal Journey
As visitors traverse the haunted house, they will follow in the footsteps of the game’s protagonists, Joel and Ellie. Their mission is to survive in a world ravaged by a fungal virus that transforms humans into terrifying creatures known as the Infected. Guests will encounter various types of Infected, including Runners, Stalkers, and Clickers, as well as the hostile human faction called The Hunters. Navigating through the Pittsburgh Quarantine Zone, they will explore iconic locations such as the eerie and abandoned Hotel Grand and a labyrinth of dark tunnels, all while desperately trying to escape and stay alive.

Co-President Neil Druckmann expressed his excitement for the collaboration, stating, “Having just celebrated the 10th anniversary of The Last of Us, it’s a perfect time for our fans to team up with Joel and Ellie and come face-to-terrifying-face with Clickers, Raiders, and much more!”
