History and Location[edit | edit source]
On August 27th, 2015, Universal announced that a haunted house that served as a sequel to the Run haunted houses would be coming to their Halloween Horror Nights event that year. The house would have almost nothing to do with the previous Run houses, and would instead be loosely based off of the movie, The Running Man. The codename for this house was "Spandex", as that's what the people in The Running Man wore.
The house would be located in the extended queue for the Disaster ride, and would be the eighth and final haunted house in this location. The fact that this was the last house in this location was due to how the Disaster attraction was closed the following year to make way for the Fast and Furious: Supercharged ride.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This house is very similar to the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger film The Running Man, right down to the very concept of a deadly TV show where contestants have to fight for their lives.
- After almost every room is a brief intermission room.
- At the very end of the Canada room, there was a chainsaw with a button on it. If one would press the button, chainsaw noises would play.
- This was the last house located in the Disaster! Queue.
- Wild Child in the queue video was played by one of Charles Gray's daughters.
- The A&D team had thought about taking the title of the house and giving it a 1980s feel.
- The characters in this house are called Reapers & Assassins and all unique and individual with environments that match to each one.
