Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights are infamous. I’m too much of a wimp to check out the event, but fans of horror and being scared seem to love attending every fall. This year they’re going for an extra special twist by working with director Drew Goddard to create a maze based on his film The Cabin in the Woods. It’s a smart marketing move. Universal recently spoke to Zap2it about the plan:
“We are building the cabin completely. You’re going to walk through a forest to get there. You’re going into the cabin. You’re going to go into the cube cells. We’re literally taking everything we can in the film and giving you a kind of best-of montage of the film with this kind of linking story,” Universal Orlando Entertainment Team member Michael Aiello tells Zap2it. “You’re going to be in the control room when merman attacks.”
Guests entering the maze will be inserted into the story. Plot points will be incorporated, and it will definitely be like a movie walk through of sorts. They’ll change some parts – the final scene definitely won’t be the same. Goddard and team are still developing the script, but you can bet whatever they create for fans will be incredibly memorable.
