Kicking off on Friday, September 2, 2022, and running all the way through October 31, 2022, Halloween Horror Nights 2022 — which marks the 31st anniversary of the scary event — will feature six original concepts amongst some of the more infamous and mainstay attractions, with 10 total haunted houses, five scare zones, and two live shows for fans to check out, including the previously announced “The Horrors of Blumhouse” attraction.

Perhaps most surprising, however, is the inclusion of The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare, a haunted house inspired by select tracks from The Weeknd’s album. While participants make their way through the house, they’ll be treated to various tracks and short films from the artist, as well as stalked by bandaged maniacs, toad-like creatures, and more.
