Universal Studios Hollywood to Debut 'This is The End' Maze
Universal Studios Hollywood will debut its first-ever 3D horror-comedy maze next month as part of the highly anticipated "Halloween Horror Nights."
"This is the End 3D," based on the 2013 disaster comedy movie starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, will open Sept. 18 and continue on select Halloween Horror Nights through Nov. 1.
The maze experience will mirror the film's plot, with guests first heading to Franco's new home in the Hollywood Hills. Shortly thereafter the Apocalypse will commence, with plenty of frightening and hilarious moments to follow.
Like the characters in the film, which include Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson, guests will have to face the demon creatures head on and hope that they are whisked away to heaven by a bright blue light.
"This is the End brings a new dimension of fear to 'Halloween Horror Nights' by fusing the best of two extreme worlds — horror and comedy — to create a literal and figurative three-dimensional experiential version of the film," said Universal Studios Hollywood creative director and Halloween Horror Nights executive producer John Murdy in a statement. "Our collaboration with James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill to transform this outrageous movie into a terrifying maze underscores the impact of 'Halloween Horror Nights' as one the most influential Halloween events around."
Other mazes set to be featured during Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood this upcoming fall include "Guillermo del Toro Presents Crimson Peak: Maze of Madness," "The Walking Dead: Wolves Not Far," "Insidious: Return to the Further" and "Halloween: Michael Myers Comes Home."
Halloween Horror Nights will also be celebrating its 25th year at Universal Orlando Resort. That event will span 30 nights and feature nine haunted houses, five scares zones and a pair of shows.
There, park guests can purchase add-on tickets to experience Halloween Horror Nights or buy a single night general admission ticket for $101.99. Multi-night passes are also available.
