Having seen and adored The Cabin in the Woods, I can honestly say that this makes a hell of a lot of sense. If any recent film was SCREAMING to be turned into a haunted attraction, it’s this one, and that’s exactly what Universal Orlando is doing for its 23rd Halloween Horror Nights!
“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,” the film’s director, Drew Goddard, tells Zap2it. “You’re going to be in the control room when merman attacks.”
“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,” Universal Orlando Entertainment Team member Michael Aiello says. “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.”
Goddard adds, “Our finale for the maze is something that we want guests to be surrounded by. There are so many amazing characters in the movie, we really wanted to end it with trying to surround the guests with as many guests as possible.”
