If you need a good laugh in between some of Halloween’s spookier moments, look no further than Ariana Grande’s trip to the American Horror Story Halloween Horror Nights Maze at Universal Studios.
The pop star, accompanied Ellen producer Andy Lassner, ventured into the new horror “ride” and experienced over three minutes of absolute terror as part of a segment for the show. Of course, a camera was on hand to track their reactions.
At first, Grande seems pretty confident, but after the first character jumps out and scares her, she drops to the floor and cowers. From there, her reactions oscillate between acting as human shield to Lassner, who crouches behind her several times throughout the maze, and cursing anyone who jumps out at her.
After a particularly horrific moment in the bathroom, Lassner asks if she’s actually enjoying herself. “Yeah, it’s just great,” she says, and immediately gets one of the bigger frights of the maze. “My legs are shaking,” she admits. Even though the maze looks absolutely terrifying, Grande’s and Lassner’s reactions provide a hearty laugh.
The segment airs today (Oct. 31) on Ellen.
