Penn & Teller, Universal Orlando team up to create haunted house for Halloween Horror Nights

In the nearly 40 years that they've been working together, Penn Jillette & Teller have accomplished a great many things. Thanks to their skillful blend of cynical showmanship & macabre magic, these two have traveled the world over, had hit shows both on & off Broadway, made numerous TV & film appearances, written best-selling books as well as starring in their own long-running Las Vegas revue.

Which would have probably been enough for most performers. But not Penn & Teller. For years now, their fans had been clamoring for these two to do produce some sort of seasonal spectacular. A Halloween maze or haunted house that perfectly captured this team's twisted sensibilities.

"That's something that I've honestly been longing to do for decades now," Teller explained during a recent phone interview. "But the sheer logistics of doing something like that -- Where should we build this haunted house? How should we market it?  -- were just too daunting. It wasn't the sort of project that we were willing to tackle all on our own. So that idea just sat on the shelf."

Until earlier this year, that is. Which is when members of Universal Orlando's creative team invited Penn & Teller to lunch and then asked them if they might be interested in collaborating on a concept for this year's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida.

So what happens next? What concept did Penn & Teller and the crew at Universal Creative come up with for this new Halloween Horror Nights maze?
