Universal Studios Orlando adds 'The Last of Us' haunted house for Halloween Horror Nights

It's time to endure and survive, Orlando. 

The Last of Us is coming to life as a haunted house at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights this fall! The theme park announced the new addition Thursday, which will "propel guests into a world of carnage and mayhem as they follow in the footsteps of the game’s protagonists, Joel and Ellie, who endure a brutal journey in a world overtaken by a fungal virus that turns humans into various forms of a new threat known as the Infected," according to a news release. 

When guests are thrown into this frightening world, they'll get up close and personal with Runners, Stalkers, Clickers and Hunters as they navigate the Pittsburgh Quarantine Zone. Fans will also be able to experience The Hotel Grand and a labyrinth of tunnels, the theme park said.
