Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando, Florida will be adding a video game-themed attraction to celebrate Halloween this year: Resident Evil. The survival horror video game series Resident Evil from Capcom will become a haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights 23 at the amusement park. Other attractions for Halloween Horror Nights 23 include The Walking Dead, Evil Dead, An American Werewolf in London, and Cabin in the Woods.
For Resident Evil, Universal’s Entertainment team worked closely with Capcom to create a "horrifyingly authentic haunted house based on some of the popular video games from the Resident Evil series." Visitors to the attraction become "desperate survivors" inside the viral catastrophe of Raccoon City, encountering vicious characters from the games such as Lickers, bloodthirsty zombies, packs of Cerberuses and even Nemesis himself.
"It’s such a great delight to work with Universal on a haunted house based on the Resident Evil games," said Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, Producer of Resident Evil 6. "The games have become synonymous with survival horror and we look forward to delivering a new way for consumers to experience the Resident Evil world we have created in the haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights."
