The event will also include Terror Tram…The Exterminatorz. Details on each below.
Previously, Universal Studios Hollywood revealed three other haunted houses this year.

Monstruos: The Monsters of Latin America
An encounter with the most terrifying ghosts and creatures from Latin American folklore.
Holidayz in Hell
This one’s pretty straightforward: Visitors take a trip through a series of psychotic seasonal celebrations.
Terror Tram…The Exterminatorz
Guests touring the world-famous Universal backlot find themselves in the middle of an insect uprising led by the devious Larry Larva whose goal is to exterminate humans from the Earth. Horror fans will also walk along the Jupiter’s Claim set from Nope where they will encounter The Tethered from Us in crossovers from two of director Jordan Peele’s blockbusters.
Here are the storylines of this year’s previously-announced attractions:
Stranger Things 4
An experience that transports guests to Hawkins, Indiana where they will face off against the evil Vecna, as seen in the fourth season of Netflix’s original series.
The Exorcist: Believer
Set in a bustling street market in Haiti, where an innocent purchase of a strange folk doll with three eyes leads to the opening of a demonic portal, the awakening of sinister spirits and the subsequent disappearance of two 12-year-old girls in the U.S. The girls are found three days later with no memory of what happened to them. After the girls begin to exhibit unsettling behavior, it soon becomes clear that only an exorcism can save them – and everyone who comes in contact with them, including unwitting guests, is suddenly at risk of losing their souls.
Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count
Chucky has been mired in the agony of disrespect he feels from his peers at not being taken seriously. Thus begins his quest to turn his haunted house into a living slaughterhouse by killing every person who enters.
Universal Monsters: Unmasked
Lurking sixty feet beneath the bustling streets of the City of Lights, the dank Catacombs of Paris house a much darker secret. . . The all-new haunted house Universal Monsters: Unmasked takes guests down into the infamous burial grounds where every corner and crevice overflows with millions of skeletal remains and even more sinister secrets. Deep within the Catacombs, Universal’s most notorious creatures – The Phantom of the Opera, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Dr. Jack Griffin, aka The Invisible Man – also lie in wait as they bide their time and seek vengeance against guests after the opening of the Catacombs to public visitation.
Once again, Slash is creating an original score for the West Coast version of the Universal Monsters: Unmasked haunted house.
