Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights 23 is getting a very exciting new horror maze for its 2013 celebrations. The Florida theme park has teamed with director Drew Goddard to create a maze based on his 2012 horror film "The Cabin in the Woods."
"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."
A new storyline that parallels the one in "Cabin in the Woods" will be introduced in the Halloween maze. The idea initially presented to Goddard was that guests will take on the role of a newly hired person in the Facility. Videos in the queue and within the maze will explain the mythology of "Cabin in the Woods" and the idea of the film's sacrifices and gods, and then guests will experience the events of the movie -- including some of the sacrifices -- in real time from a different perspective.
