Cabin in the Woods Is Being Built, For Real, as a Halloween Maze
If you’re looking for something to likely scare the crap out of you this fall, Universal Orlando is cooking up one hell of an idea.
Apparently, Universal Orlando is building the cabin in the woods – the one from the meta-horror hit Cabin in the Woods. It’s going to be a fully interactive maze and is set to be introduced at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 23 – which kicks of September 20th.
“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’s Michael Aiello tells Zap2it. “You’re going to be in the control room when merman attacks.”
And the film’s director, Drew Goddard, is helping with the project. Partly, he’s helping to adapt a script for the attraction – one with a story that will parallell the one in the original film.
“We’re trying to adapt this film as best as we physically can in the context of what we have. The whole idea of the maze is to have varying creatures in it. In the maze, we’ve got many that were in the forefront of a lot of the scenes — the ballerina, the Sugarplum Fairy, the Hell Lord — but also too there are a couple rooms where we’re kind of featuring some of the creatures that were just on the screens in the control room of movie. And then in the finale we’ve got a couple characters that could open up from Halloweens past, our own events, because we were granted amazing permission to be able to include some of our lineage into ‘Cabin’s’ lineage,” said Aiello.
Well, that sounds fun/terrifying. You can check out tickets now on the Halloween Horror Nights site.[Zap2It via GIzmodo]
