Fox and Halloween Horror Nights Orlando and Hollywood are collaborating to bring AvP: Alien vs. Predator to Universal Studios’ annual Halloween event when it kicks off on September 19th.
A maze surrounding the film is going to be part of HHN, joining the likes of The Walking Dead, The Purge: Anarchy and From Dusk Till Dawn – other properties enlisted for this year.
To mark the 35th anniversary celebration of Alien, and the 10th anniversary of AvP: Alien vs. Predator, Halloween Horror Nights guests and fans of these celebrated films will have a chance to live the horror of these diabolical beasts as they come face to face with the terror of Aliens and Predators.
The introduction of AVP into the immensely popular Halloween Horror Nights is further proof of the indelible mark this incredibly powerful franchise has left on fans and the horror genre itself. Bringing AVP to life in a new maze is a perfect way to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the film as well as mark the 35th anniversary of Alien, the film that started it all, and etched in our collective psyche the meaning of modern terror, said Greg Lombardo, vice president of global live and location based entertainment at Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. Were thrilled to be working with Universal Studios to create mazes in Orlando and Hollywood that will bring fans face-to- face with the horrifying and iconic characters of AVP. The technology being leveraged will surely be a new benchmark and provide a uniquely terrifying and visceral encounter that puts guests right in the middle of an epic extraterrestrial battle for survival.
In Universal Orlandos spine-chilling maze, guests will find themselves thrust right into the middle of the primordial battle between the Aliens and Predators as they visit one of Weyland-Yutanis secret facilities to assist with a situation that has surfaced. Communication has been lost with a bio-weapons research facility in Central America which houses many divisions dealing in extra-terrestrial technologies, specifically the Alien Xenomorph species. Pieces of transmissions were received detailing that the facility has become compromised and another alien species called Yautja commonly known as Predators – are hunting both the Xenomorphs and any human presence found. Guests will have to navigate through the labyrinth of destruction within the facility as they struggle to survive the ancient feud between these two deadly species.
This menacing maze will uncover a dangerous alien spaceship carrying a race of hunter aliens known as Predators and a threatening new alien life form that uses human hosts to propagate its species. After crash landing in a remote section of America and escaping to the countryside, the alien and predator become hunter and prey with guests caught in the crossfire.
