Universal Orlando’s lagoon will be haunted for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. A new show dubbed Halloween Marathon of Mayhem will take over the lagoon on select nights beginning September 6 - November 2. Here are five reasons we can’t wait to see it:

Your Favorite Horror Films, Shows and Characters Come to Life
Watch as iconic scenes from top horror films, cult classics and TV shows transform the lagoon into your worst nightmare. Experience the terror of Netflix’s Stranger Things, Ghostbusters, Universal Monsters and Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

It’s All 80’s Horror
This year the majority of the haunts at Halloween Horror Nights are from the 80’s and as you can see from above, that continues in the new lagoon show. What better way to relive your ’80’s than through the most horrific shows and movies of all time!

Fountain of Shrills
Like the rest of Universal’s lagoon shows, Halloween Marathon of Mayhem will include incredible fountain features. Giant screens highlighting iconic horror scenes, accented with more than 100 fountains, special effects, electro music, lasers and more for the most gruesomely awesome show you’ll ever see at the lagoon.

A New Horror Twist
As you take in these classic horror films, you’ll notice they all have a new Universal twist to them. Thanks to the state-of-the-art water technologies, soundtrack and lights, you can experience your favorite horror flicks and characters in a unique way only Universal can bring to life.
