Second to the mazes, one of the most popular things to do at Universal Studios Orlando Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) is have a few of their speciality drinks and get buzzed. Well the first maze announcement for 2016’s #HHN26 is promising to give Haunt Stalkers a real buzz as the family of cannibalistic Texas hillbillies lead by Leatherface and his chainsaw will be stalking us in this year’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre maze.


Leatherface has terrorized HHN on both coasts a few times in past. Back in 2007, mazes based on the 2003 remake were featured at both parks with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Flesh Wounds in Orlando and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Back in Business in Hollywood. The Hollywood maze hand an encore in 2008.


Universal Hollywood went on to reincarnate Leatherface again in 2012 with one of the most scariest mazes of year – The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Saw is the Law. This version, which will likely serve as the blueprint for the HHN26 maze, took us back to the original 1974 Tobe Hopper classic where the scenes fell in sequence with the original movie. Overall, the maze was a very fitting tribute to the movie. However, one scene we didn’t see, or maybe missed because we were running in terror, was the girl being placed on the meat hook. We hope that makes it way into the HHN26 maze.

This will be the first time that a maze based on the 1974 movie will be featured at HHN26. Here’s more of what you can expect to see this time around from Universal’s press release:

capture-20130413-162654Flashes of a familiar facemask blur the line between reality and film. The roar of a chain saw inside a darkened, deteriorating farmhouse is deafening. You are being hunted. Moving past the rotting remains of other victims, you find your escape blocked by an immovable force. A force that has only one purpose – complete and total destruction.

This year, “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” – one of the greatest horror films ever made – will come to life as an all-new maze at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 26.

You will walk through the iconic Texas farmhouse and experience Leatherface’s kills from the 1974 slasher film. You will desperately try to escape as the violent roar of his chain saw surrounds you.


  1. i got a few ideas that could be featured at Orlando Florida universal studios Halloween horror nights this year we have Texas chainsaw massacre i would love to see the gill man from creature of the black lagoon, Dracula, Frankenstein, the mummy, chuck y, and hell raiser with the cenobites and pinhead maybe even penny wise the dancing clown in some form. Norman bates from psycho and
    bates motel, the wolf man, the strangers, and ghost face from scream. would make nightmares for me.

  2. i would also love silence of the lambs Hannibal and traditions of Halloween past be featured like the legend of sleepy hollow, hunchbacks, the invisible man, Edgar Allen Poe,and phantom of the opera be featured in some form.

  3. i think they should do roaming hordes this year featuring half snake half human beasts, half human half spider like beasts, ogres, half human half fly like beasts, half human half cat like beasts, slime monsters, cyclopes, giants, harpies, hell hounds, mimics, dwarfs, winged horses, unicorns, living snowmen with chainsaws, elves, Valkyries, robots, aliens, vampires, demons, succubi, fairies, werewolves, half human half insect like mutants, centaurs, evil cupids, fairies, ghosts, zombies, cyborgs, mermaids, grim reapers, angels, gods, mandrakes, genies, clones, dragons, ninjas, samurais, pirates, knights, clowns, psychic fortune tellers, alchemists, nuns, shrine maidens, exorcists, priests, monks, witches, and other strange creatures led by the demonic personification of fear itself.

  4. my other possible ideas for Halloween horror nights universal studios Orlando Florida we have the first announced house Texas chainsaw massacre others are american horror story, ash versus evil dead, the purge, the walking dead, psycho bates motel, Penn and teller, the thing, cabin in the woods, Carrie, the shining, the stand, misery, it, dark tower, under the dome, and Rita Hayworth and the shank Shaw redemption to be featured this year.

  5. i have a feeling that another house or something might happen tomorrow i hope this years icon would be given the name Johnathan Goodwill aka the Antichrist be unleashed with new intellectual properties and new original houses or mazes with new scare zones, a exciting inauguration themed media event, new invitations with burn marks and vote for Johnathan posters, ads, and other things, have a small limo or luxury car with a actor come out becoming the world’s first united leader and the minor icons come out as his sick twisted running mates, have new roaming hordes and a sinister show featuring Johnathan and his sick minions kill innocent victims and stop a riot in the park.

  6. this year i think the houses are Texas chainsaw massacre, the exorcist, psycho, the purge election year, and some four new original concept houses.

  7. i suggest the next houses should be dark holiday twist maze or scare zone, purge scare zone or house, conjuring, ash versus evil dead, Penn and teller house scare zone or show, chance the icon show, bill and ted , american horror story, and new original ideas for houses and scare zones plus maybe some roaming hordes of chance’s maniacal minions.
