Street Zombies

The hugely popular and terrifying street zombies are back to roaming the park, terrorizing those guests brave enough to stay once darkness falls.

The 2022 event is being held on a particularly large scale and features a motley crew of undead creatures and nightmarish fiends. The zombies are led by Hamikuma, a somewhat adorable yet extremely unnerving giant teddy bear with one eye hanging off.

This year's event will also feature projection mapping, completely transforming the scenery of the park and ensuring visitors are fully immersed in this nightmarish new world.

Universal Monsters: Legends of Fear

The world's most iconic legendary monsters have gathered at Universal Studios this year, and are ready to terrify guests in this horror maze experience!

Visitors must navigate their way through a dark cemetery, whilst horror legends such as Dracula and Frankenstein's Monster lurk in the shadows, ready to jump out at any time. The experience is inspired by classic horror movie masterpieces, and guests will lose themselves in the bone-chilling world of classic horror cinema.

Resident Evil: The Extreme +

Also known as Biohazard in Japan, the hugely popular horror game franchise has caused sleepless nights for gamers for well over two decades, and now visitors to the park can truly immerse themselves in the hellish world of Raccoon City.

The attraction has been created in such a way as to make those experiencing it feel as though they have physically entered a Resident Evil game. People daring enough to enter will need to navigate a ‘horror survival maze’, with more than one possible route and countless threats throughout.

It's the perfect attraction for fans of the games and extreme horror thrill seekers.

Zombie de Dance
