The facade of Hades: Gates of Ruin

Hades: The Gates of Ruin was one of the eight haunted houses that were featured during Halloween Horror Nights: Twenty Years of Fear. It was located in Soundstage 23 along with PsychoScareapy: Echoes of Shadybrook.

History and Location Edit

In 2010, Universal decided to have haunted house based on Greek mythology. The house would take place in the Underworld and would feature many mythological creatures like Medusa and The Minotaur. It would be called Hades: The Gates of Ruin.

The house would make event history, as it was most likely the very first haunted house based on Greek Mythology.

The house would be one of two located in Soundstage 23, the other one being PsychoScareapy: Echoes of Shadybrook. Soundstage 23 is one of the larger soundstage facilities designed to be used as filming locations for movies and television shows.

Description Edit

Make your way into the underworld and come face to face with the most terrifying creatures of myth and legend.


Queue Edit

Guests made their way into a small crumbled temple, and eventually reached a large head carved into a mountain. Greek mythology stories were in books for guests to read.

Haunted House Edit

Guests entered through the Gates of Ruin, a large head carved into a mountain. Guests then wandered through tight spaced maze of overgrown moss, and at the end stood a six foot Hades. Guests then continued into the Cyclops room, in which severed body parts hung from the ceiling, and the cyclops attacks guests. Guests then moved into another maze, but this time with harpies flying above them, and taunting them. Exiting the scene, guests entered the temple of Medusa. Strobe lights, and shadows of Medusa turning people into stone are seen in one room. Moving into the next area, guests saw Medusa and her statues. In the finale, Hades unleashed Pandora's box into the world, and grief, misery, havoc, starvation, and doom (in their scareactor manifestations) attacked guests. As guests left the house, the word HOPE was graffiti'd onto the wall behind them.
