Last ‘House’ – Resident Evil: Escape from Raccoon City

And the final house is …

“Resident Evil: Escape from Raccoon City.”

Universal made the announcement this week, wrapping up a month-long lead into this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. The fright-fest that draws thousands every year.

The line-up features a variety of house and street scenes based on horror flicks, television shows, and video games. Previously announced attractions are “Urban Legends: La Llorona,” “The Walking Dead,” “Havoc 2: Derailed,” “Evil Dead,” “Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance,” “An American Werewolf in London” and “Cabin in the Woods.”

According to Behind The Thrills, the house will be based on games 2 and 3 of the video series (not the movie). It’s the first time a game has been used as a basis for a “house.”

Scare zones include: The Fall of Atlanta, a tour of the decimated, yet inhabited, city; Woodlands, with characters and scenes from seasons 1, 2, and 3; Survivor’s Camp, dealing with the undead at a derelict campsite; The Farm, which is pretty smelly and it’s not from the usual suspects; Clear, in which you must stick together on a terrifying walk.

Two films will also be shown – “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure” and “Rocky Horror Picture Show – A Tribute.”

Halloween Horror Nights 23 opens Sept. 20 and runs on weekends and some weekdays through Nov. 2. A general admission ticket for a single night is $92, but various packages are available that bring down the cost. For those looking for behind the scenes action, there are RIP Tours, starting at $110 for the non-private tour, and HHN Behind the Screams Tours (two flavors: Unmasking the Horror and Arcane Insights), which cost between $60 and $240.
