“I feel like my music videos have served as a launching pad for a collaboration like this and I cannot wait for people to experience this madness,” said Abel ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye.
Universal Studios has partnered with The Weeknd to launch a haunted house experience inspired by his After Hours album.
After Hours will play throughout the experience as guests step into a surreal living nightmare filled with themes and characters inspired by The Weeknd’s music and short films – including slashers, bandaged maniacs and gruesome toad-like creatures.
“I always wanted my own Halloween Horror Nights haunted house as Halloween has always been significant to my music, so this is a total dream come to life,” said Abel ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye.
“I feel like my music videos have served as a launching pad for a collaboration like this, and I cannot wait for people to experience this madness!”

The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare will take place at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood on select night from September 8th to October 31st as part of Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights.
