"Plus, as a fan favorite, 'American Horror Story' has been the number one requested maze from our guests and we're excited to let them know that we listened to them and are bringing 'American Horror Story' to life."


Horror Story” debuted in 2011 and has won multiple awards including 13 Emmys and two Golden Globes, among others. The sixth installment of the series will debut Sept. 14 on FX, coinciding with the launch of Halloween Horror Nights.

"Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products is thrilled to team once again with Universal Studios to premiere visionary Ryan Murphy's groundbreaking series, 'American Horror Story' through an all-new Halloween Horror Night maze," says Greg Lombardo, senior vice president, global live and location based entertainment, Fox Consumer Products. "The attraction–which showcases multiple chapters from the acclaimed FX anthology–offers a chilling live-action thrill and simultaneously complements the series highly anticipated premiere on September 14th."
