Universal has just revealed that the next maze coming to this years Halloween Horror Nights is based on the 2015 Christmas comedy horror film, Krampus.

You can check out the trailer below:

Universal had this to say on the announcement:

The dead of winter sets the stage for the terror that’s about to unfold one cold, dank and dreary Christmas Eve as the fabled anthropomorphic “half-goat, half-demon” horned creature emerges to terrorize those devoid of holiday spirit. In scenes lifted from the film, guests will navigate the dysfunctional Engel family home to encounter the evil ancient spirit of Krampus – the dark shadow of Saint Nicholas – and his band of Dark Elves and sinister Gingerbread Men, who cause the family to fight to see the light of day.

Krampus is going to appear at both Universal Orlando and Hollywood parks and will begin alongside the rest of the events on September 16th.

This announcement was unexpected but a welcome one, it is nice to have a brand new maze come to the event alongside the classic horror villains already announced.
