The Psycho Path Maze was one of the three haunted houses that were featured during Halloween Horror Nights III. It came back the following year for Halloween Horror Nights IV. It was located in the Bates Motel and was based off of the movie Psycho. This house had a sequel during Halloween Horror Nights IX called Psycho: Through the Mind of Norman Bates.

History and Location Edit

Universal decided to make a Psycho house for Halloween Horror Nights III, so they built a tent behind the Bates Motel facade that they had. The facade was a recreation of the famous Bates Motel and the Bates House up on a hill.

The house would use actual props from the movie Psycho IV: The Beginning. This house was so popular that they decided to bring it back the following year in 1994. The house had most of the popular rooms from the original house as well as several new scenes added. Some of these scenes included a graveyard scene and an attic scene.

The house would get a sequel in 1999 titled Psycho: Through the Mind of Norman Bates. Also, these two houses would be the only ones located in The Bates Motel, mostly because the facade was destroyed in the mid '90s to make room for the Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone.

Walkthrough Edit

In the house there was a scene called The Closet and it featured a closet filled with clothes. Norman Bates mother would jump out from behind these clothes with a knife. Another room featured a painting above a fireplace and Norman Bates dressed as his mother would pop out of the painting. There was also a kitchen scene where Norman dressed as his mother would come out of a cupboard. One of the final rooms featured the shower scene from Psycho. Norman Bates dressed as his mother would stab a mannequin that represents Marion Crane from behind a curtain while the famous Shower Scene music played. He would then jump out at guests as they walked by.
