Doomsday was one of the eight haunted houses that were featured during Halloween Horror Nights: Reflections of Fear. It was located in the Disaster! Queue.

History and Location[edit | edit source]

In 2008, Universal decided to tie in all eight of their haunted houses to patients of Bloody Mary. This haunted house would tie in to Thornton Kesterson. He had a fear of disease and fires, so naturally Bloody Mary "cured" his fear by "decontaminating" him by placing him in front of a jet engine surrounded by mirrors. Before he got the chance to say the "safe word", he was incinerated but not before the mirrors shattered due to the intense heat and impaled his body.

The house would serve as a direct tie-in to the 2008 movie, Doomsday. The house would take guests through various scenes of the movie.

The house would be the first to be located in the large extended queue for the Disaster ride. Universal replaced the Earthquake ride with the Disaster ride, which was just a revamped version of the old ride. Because of this, the queue and house location remained largely the same.

Mystery Tie-in[edit | edit source]

This house ties-in with Thorton Kesterson, son of handyman Aldridge Kesterson, the man responsible for Mary Worthington's disappearance. Aldridge, an undertaker and carpenter, was an abusive man who had a long rep sheet with crimes including body snatching. Aldridge, while working as a school handyman, convinced six students to participate in a prank involving teacher, Mary Worthington. Thorton, terrified, refused to participate and hid in the cornfield. Unfortunately, the prank went too far, and Mary Worthington, for reasons unknown, was never found. The only clues to be found were broken mirror shards. As an adult, Thorton became a gem trader and traveled to all sorts of exotic locations. His reputation as a gem trader later gained suspicions from authorities and freelance photographers, looking for evidence of his crooked business.

Eventually, he began to develop a fear of strange and unknown bacteria and viruses and island cannibals. He booked an appointment with Dr. Mary Agana, not knowing she was the granddaughter of the school teacher his father and schoolmates caused to disappear. Dr. Agana numbed his body with a heavy dose of anesthesia, tied him to a chair surrounded by mirrors and placed crematorial jets below his legs and back, knowing he was also afraid of fire. This was supposed to help Thorton experience the fear and yet feel nothing. Should this become too much, all he had to do was say the "safety word". She turned on the jets and as he burned, he managed to mumble the "safe word", but it was too late and he was quickly incinerated but not before the mirrors shattered due to the intense heat and impaled his body.

Experience[edit | edit source]

Queue and Facade[edit | edit source]

Guests would enter the queue of this house to the left of the entrance for Beetlejuice's Graveyard Revue. The queue would go to a backstage area behind the Disaster building, where the line would loop around multiple times before entering the Dissaster building from the back. A queue video would play on one of the walls of the building. Next to the queue video projection, a giant metal wall was constructed with the letters RIP spraypainted on it. Guests would then enter a house through a decrepit building that said "Glassford Street W2".

Haunted House[edit | edit source]

Guests would be taken through the most famous scenes from the movie. They would encounter the castle, the prison, and the gimp character. At the end of the house while Sol is on a stage and is interacting with people, guys with chainsaws sneak up on the guests.
