As Jordan Peele’s summer horror pic Nope debuts in theaters on July 22, the set from the movie’s amusement park will join Universal Studios Hollywood’s Studio Tour.

. The set was taken apart post filming and later taken to Universal Studios Hollywood and reconstructed on site.

Peele, who recently announced the launch of a Jupiter’s Claim website through social media shared his excitement about the opening attraction.

This marks the first time in Universal Studios’ history that an attraction opens on the same day as a movie release.

Nope tells the story of a group of residents living in Santa Clarita, an isolated desert town in California. Although plot details have been kept under wraps, released trailers have alluded to extraterrestrial activity. Universal has coined Nope “an expansive horror epic” and a “new pop nightmare.”

Nope reunites Peele with Oscar-winner Daniel Kaluuya, who starred in Get Out. Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott and Brandon Perea round out the case. Nope is written and directed by Peele, and produced by Ian Cooper (Candyman) and Peele for Monkeypaw Productions. The psychological horror-thriller will be released by Universal Pictures worldwide with IMAX optimization.

Peele won the Oscar for the Best Original Screenplay for his directorial debut Get Out. In 2019, he directed Us, starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke.
