I'm just wondering what everyone thinks now that all the mazes and scare zones have been announce. From the official site
Nightmare and Friday are supposed to be based on the remakes and are being advertised as all-new since they will not have scenes from each respective original series as the mazes in the past had. I haven't seen the Nightmare remake, but I think the F13 remake does have plenty of potential and there are plenty of locations unique to that film, such as Jason's lair, that can set it apart from the previous mazes. I just hope they do make an effort to make them different from the past mazes.Mazes:
A Nightmare on Elm Street: Never Sleep Again All New!
Friday the 13th: Kill, Jason, Kill. All New!
Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses in Zombievision! (3-D) All New!
Saw: Game On New traps!
Vampyre: Castle of the Undead All New!
All-new Terror Tram: Chucky's Revenge
Bill and Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure
King Kong 360 3-D: Skull Island Express
Only for Halloween Horror Nights, take an express tram directly to the new King Kong 360 3-D.
More details to come…
Saw is being advertised as having new traps instead of being all new so it seems like it might be a combination of old and new. I'm hoping the crushing room from Saw V makes it this year.
House of 1000 Corpses is new, although there was a maze based on the movie back in 2000. I'm looking forward to this one and hope they slip a few Devil's Rejects references in there.
Vampyr seems like it will be the "House of Horror" redress this year. Hopefully they have some success with this. IMO, 2006 was the only good year of for that location.
La Llorona scarezone is being heavily advertised this year. I had no idea what La Llorona until I looked it up. Man, I wished they made this into a maze instead of bringing back NoES, F13, or Saw. It is a pretty sick and twisted legend. She is a woman who killed her own children so she could be with a man that didn't want children, only to kill herself when he rejects her. Now her ghost wanders around kidnapping children. Actually sounds like the kind of thing Knott's would use for a maze. I'm looking forward to this scare zone. Plus it is the only one without a Z at the end of the name.
Terror Tram is hosted by Chucky this year. It'll be interesting to see what they do with it. I really hope we get to walk through the Bates Motel again this year, although I'd understand if they made us go around again. It sounds like they are going to make a separate tram that will just go to King Kong. It'll be interesting to see how that works and where it will load.
So far Bill and Ted seems to be the only show. No mention of Slaughter World, Rocky Horror, Insult Emporium, or anything on the Animal Actors stage.
