ORLANDO, Fla – Universal Orlando surprised Halloween Horror Nights fans with a “Beetlejuice“ themed house Saturday morning. Universal described the house on its mobile app.

“Enter the world of the original film, more twisted and terrifying as ever. Wander checkered hallways and through the model graveyard as the infamous bio-exorcist , Beetejuice, haunts you, taunts you and torments you at every turn.”

The new house will be in a building near the E.T. attraction at Universal Studios. The popular 80‘s character has had a prominent influence in this year’s merchandise. Universal even highlighted Beetlejuice in this year‘s tribute store. Guests could come face-to-face with the original character, his neon-lit and foam ridden grave, Dante’s inferno room, the afterlife waiting room and the ghostly Maitland couple.
