Universal Parks and Resorts is bringing a new, year-round horror experience to Las Vegas, according to the company behind Halloween Horror Nights.

In an announcement Wednesday, Universal said the new park will include immersive experiences, food and beverage spaces "by day turned haunting bars and eaters by nights," seasonal events and merchandise.

This will be the first time Universal has created a permanent horror experience outside of its theme parks.
