This year's event features five IP houses, here's what Universal Orlando Resort have in store this year...

Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count

Things get a little meta in Chucky's horror house at HHN32. The Universal team have created a maze to celebrate the demented doll's television show, but the real Chucky isn't pleased that there was no actual deaths... so he wants to put that right! Chucky has "hijacked" his maze and all the dolls inside to create his own "slaughterhouse."

The Last of Us

Based on the Naughty Dog video game, you'll find yourself in the post apocalyptic world where humans have been infected by a fungal virus. You'll follow in the footsteps of Joel and Ellie as they face Runners, Stalkers and Clickers. Venturing through the Pittsburgh Quarantine Zone, The Hotel Grand and the city's dark tunnels you'll encounter more than just the infected, "hostile" Hunters are lurking in the shadows.
