Urban Legends: La Llorona was one of the eight haunted houses that was featured during Halloween Horror Nights 23. It was located in Sprung Tent 1. The house was based off of the Latin/American myth of La Llorona.
History and Location[edit | edit source]
On August 30th, 2013, Universal announced that a haunted house based on the legend of La Llorona would be featured at Halloween Horror Nights 23. This was most likely due to the success of previous La Llorona haunted houses at Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood. The house would bring guests through the story of La Llorona.
In 2006, Universal built two hurricane-proof tents behind the World Expo area of the park specifically for holding Halloween Horror Nights haunted houses. This house would be located in the southernmost one (called Sprung Tent 1).
Description[edit | edit source]
She is known as The Weeping Woman. Her legend is one of tragedy… and of murder. She drowned her children in the cold, watery depths and now torments all who hear her with icy, mournful cries. Forced to walk the Earth for eternity, she seeks others to share her pain and suffering, now and forever.
The weeping woman's cries for her children send chills colder than the depths in which she drowned them. She walks the earth seeking others to share her pain.
Experience[edit | edit source]
Queue and Facade[edit | edit source]
Guests would enter the queue near the entrance to the Barney show. Guests would go through the queue for the Barney show, and would eventually reach the Barney show area. Going through a backdoor, guests would head towards Sprung Tent 1.
As guests approached the tent, they would see the facade of an Old Mexican Church. Various props were laid outside the church to give it a more authentic feel. A queue video was projected on the church detailing the backstory of La Llorona. Guests would enter the house through the front door of the church.
