They’re back and they’re out for blood… again. Universal Orlando has announced the first original house for Halloween Horror Nights 29, and it’s “Nightingales: Blood Pit.”

  • “Nightingales: Blood Pit” will take guests back to Ancient Rome where they must try to escape the gladiator arena as the nightingales, a grisly race of bloodthirsty creatures, feed on the dead and dying.
  • The nightingales have been around since the dawn of time, feeding on the victims of war.
  • Guests and gladiators alike will try to survive this feeding frenzy as the nightingales tear into their victims.
  • This is actually not the first time the nightingales have shown up at Halloween Horror Nights. In 2011, at HHN 21, the creatures terrorized guests in a house called “Nightingales: Blood Prey.”
  • That house was set in WWI trenches and guests tried to sneak past the creatures as they fed on the dead and wounded.
  • Halloween Horror Nights 29 begins Friday, September 6 at Universal Studios Florida in Universal Orlando Resort.
