The haunting story of ‘La Llorona,’ a beautiful girl named Maria from a poor village who desperately sought to win the affection of a rich nobleman. But this nobleman wanted nothing to do with Maria due to her having children, so as a plea to be his she drown her children. After this the nobleman completely shunned her. Overcome with anguish, she drowns herself in a bitter end.  According to legend, when she arrived at the gates of heaven she was asked where her children were? And was told she could not pass to the afterlife till they were found. Maria’s tormented and distressed spirit wanders the earth, eternally piercing the night with mournful cries, “My children!  Where are my children?” ― giving rise to her name, ‘La Llorona’ or ‘The Weeping Woman.’ She’s back and she is making the long journey from Hollywood to Orlando in order to find her children,  La Llorona’s frail, drenched body lurking throughout the dead of night will invariably elicit unwavering dread from the helpless village inhabitants or maze guests, as her presence signifies impending death.

La Llorona first came to life in 2011 as a maze in Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood, based on the local legend of The Weeping Woman. The house was so popular that HHN brought it back for another year with ‘The Child Hunter’. This year it’s Orlando’s turn to face the wrath of the woman in white. Watch out, she could be coming to get you!!

Urban Legends: La Llorona will take the tale that was used in Hollywood and build it for Florida audiences who aren’t as familiar with the legend that is very popular in Mexican culture in California. La Llorona will join the likes of The Walking Dead,Evil Dead and The Cabin in the Woods for Halloween Horror Nights 23 in Universal Orlando. This is the first house of ‘Reveal Week’ for hhn. Every night this week at midnight another announcement will be made.

What’s next guys? Think I might know… so stay tuned and maybe I will have some hints out there before the next reveal!!
