Fans of Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods will be able to experience the terror first hand at Universal Studios Orlando this fall.
The theme park is preparing to open an attraction based around the 2012 genre flick just in time for Halloween. If you think you can handle the horror contained within, then you’d better start planning your vacation right about now.
According to Cinema Blend, the Cabin in the Woods attraction will take place in — you guessed it — a cabin in the woods. Or at least a reasonable facsimile. Once inside, guests will be charged with fending off a horde of blood-thirsty zombies. However, it only gets better from here.
Once you’ve managed to escape from the cabin, you’ll enter into a secret government facility overflowing with all sorts of monstrosities. If all of this sounds strange and vaguely confusing, then you need to sit down with Cabin in the Woods. It’s available on Netflix streaming right now.
Universal Orlando Entertainment’s Michael Aiello told Zap2It:
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. You’re going to be in the control room when merman attacks.
Just because you’re familiar with the film doesn’t mean you’ll know what’s lurking around the corner inside Universal Studios’ upcoming attraction. The press release suggests that those who dare to venture into the Cabin in the Woods haunted house should prepare themselves for anything.
Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights has proven to be a major attraction for horror movie nerds. Previous mazes were inspired by such notable genre outings as Silent Hill and The Walking Dead. This isn’t your local Jaycees haunted house, that’s for sure.
