Universal Studios has just confirmed that they will be placing two mazes in the backlot this Halloween. Guests will be transported to the lower lot, where they will be dropped off in a scare zone filled with zombies inspired by The Walking Dead. If they survive, guests will find two mazes: "The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven" and "Black Sabbath: 13 3D."
The Walking Dead maze will take place in the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by decaying walkers. Guests will tour inside the facility and in the woods which surrounds it.
The Black Sabbath maze is inspired by the heavy metal band's biggest hit songs, and will incorporate 3D video. "Guests will live the nightmare of such songs as Luke's Wall, Iron Man, Paranoid, War Pigs, Electric Funeral and of course, Black Sabbath."
Aside from the two mazes in the Back Lot, Guests will also be able to experience the Terror Tram and mazes based upon "Evil Dead: Book of the Dead," and Insidious: Into the Further." Scare Zones will include Curse of Chucky and The Purge. There are more mazes and scare zones yet to be announced. But it's already a pretty amazing line up of thrills.
I'm really looking forward to walking on the backlot sets. It's a great idea and will add a new element of fun to the event. Anyone else excited about the opportunity to be dropped off in a back lot filled with zombies?!
