Universal Parks & Resorts is going to make sure you can get a fright in Las Vegas any time of the year you want.
It looks as though the new park in Frisco, Texas isn’t the only thing Universal Parks & Resorts has planned at the moment. The entertainment company has announced plans for the AREA15 District expansion which includes a horror-centric experience.
This will be the company’s first year-round horror installation and it will include experiences as well as food and beverage spaces.
“Universal is known for our ability to deliver original, highly-themed and terrifying horror entertainment experiences for millions of fans every year,” said Page Thompson, President, New Ventures, Universal Parks & Resorts. “We are excited to give our global fanbase yet another way to get scared and have fun with fear in the heart of Las Vegas, the perfect place for this type of unique concept.”
The Universal horror experience will be the anchor to a 20-acre expansion of AREA15. Universal will occupy 110,000 square feet of the new area.
“AREA15 curates a constellation of best-in-class experiences. Universal’s never-been-done-before concept will be a perfect fit because our guests know they can expect fresh, exciting entertainment at AREA15,” said Winston Fisher, Chief Executive Officer, AREA15. “We are enormously gratified to have an extraordinary company like Universal as our partner as we embark on the next phase of growth for AREA15.”
“Las Vegas is an entertainment destination unlike any other – and we are thrilled to welcome Universal to our city,” said City of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman. “The Universal experience will bring exactly the kind of high-quality, exciting entertainment our city, our visitors and our residents want.”
“Las Vegas is a vibrant community and increasingly known internationally for the creative arts experiences that we offer,” said City of Las Vegas Councilwoman Olivia Diaz. “Universal’s decision to anchor their next innovative creation in the city is exciting news for my residents and visitors alike. The job opportunities will be invaluable for our community, especially for those interested in the entertainment industry.”
No timeline has been announced as of yet for when the attraction will open.
