Well, we guessed a while back that a maze based upon the remake of Wes Craven’s classic A Nightmare on Elm Street would most likely be haunting Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights this year, and guess what? It’s happening!
That’s right, guys! We’ll bet you ten to one that Uni’s new maze has both a more intimidating Freddy and better actors playing the victims. That shouldn’t be too hard to come up with.
Bloody Disgusting was slid the official press release first.
“A Nightmare on Elm Street: Never Sleep Again” will bring guests back on a nightmare journey to the town of Springwood, the scene of Freddy Krueger’s unspeakable crimes. They’ll wind through the ominously twisting corridors of the Barham Day Care Center, glimpse ghastly scenes of carnage among the young people of Springwood and face the ultimate showdown with Freddy in his infamous boiler room lair.
The new maze is based upon the 2010 motion picture A Nightmare on Elm Street, which opened number one at the box office earlier this year. The Blu-Ray and DVD are set to release on October 5.
The 2010 “Halloween Horror Nights” event at Studios Hollywood will offer spine-chilling new mazes based upon the horror genre’s most compelling characters. Rob Zombie and other top artists are collaborating with Universal Studios Hollywood in the creation of new mazes, “scare zones” and backlot experiences.
The theme park’s favorite thrill-ride attractions will remain open for “Halloween Horror Nights” as well, many with menacing twists. Favorites include “The Simpsons Ride,” “Revenge of the Mummy – The Ride” and “Jurassic Park in the Dark.”
Updates on “Halloween Horror Nights” will be available at the official “Halloween Horror Nights” website and also on Twitter and Facebook, as Creative Director John Murdy reveals a running chronicle of exclusive information. Fans are invited to follow John Murdy on Twitter or via Facebook.”
