In celebration of an all-new installment in the Saw franchise hitting theaters later this year, Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights has a new maze that will force participants to play the deadliest games imaginable. Check out a trailer for the new attraction above.
The Saw series — one of the highest grossing horror film franchises of all time — makes its return to "Halloween Horror Nights," bringing the blockbuster's most terrifying traps to life in an all-new original maze opening at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, beginning September 15, 2017.
Based on the Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures hit horror film franchise, "SAW: The Games of Jigsaw" will bring to life the scariest game yet. In this all-new maze, guests will come face-to-face with the work of master craftsman "Jigsaw" and a collection of his most infamous traps from the Saw film series and upcoming eighth installment Jigsaw.
"We're thrilled to be partnering again with Universal Studios on an immersive experience that celebrates everything that our SAW fans love," said Lionsgate Senior Vice President of Global Live and Location Based Entertainment Jenefer Brown.
"The maze features the most terrifying traps that made the Saw franchise such a Halloween tradition, including some of the best from our upcoming film Jigsaw. What better way to complement the film's release this Halloween than taking audiences into the over-the- top action at Halloween Horror Nights," Brown added.
"Saw is one of the top grossing horror film franchises, and we're thrilled that the fan-favorite is making its return to 'Halloween Horror Nights, '" said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of "Halloween Horror Nights."
" 'SAW: The Games of Jigsaw' will encompass the greatest collection of traps featured in all eight Saw movies to bring to life the most twisted Saw maze ever produced, and we can't wait for our fans to relive moments from the films," Murdy said.
"We're excited to bring Saw back to Halloween Horror Nights and to take fans even deeper into the mind of 'Jigsaw,'" said Charles Gray, Show Director for Creative Development, "Halloween Horror Nights" at Universal Orlando Resort.
"Filled with unimaginable horrors from the hit saga and the upcoming film Jigsaw, this maze is truly a trap in itself," Gray continued.
This is only the latest addition to the impressive roster of mazes featured at this year's attraction, which will also include mazes inspired by Ash vs. Evil Dead, American Horror Story, The Shining and much more.
This year, "Halloween Horror Nights" features more mazes than ever, and with 29 terrifying event nights from which to choose, the scares are limitless. Event dates include September 15-16, 22-23, 28-30, October 1, 5-8, 12-15, 19-22, 25-29, 31 and November 2-4, 2017.
