An American Werewolf in London Maze Preview 2014

Stay on the road. Keep clear of the moors… That warning lives on in the hearts of An American Werewolf in London Fans everywhere. And in just a matter of days, fans of the John Landis film will get a chance to live the American Werewolf experience at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights!

An American Werewolf in London at Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights 2014On Friday, September 12th, Theme Park Adventure joined Creative Director/Executive Producer of Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights, John Murdy, for a special behind-the-scenes look at arguably the most highly-anticipated maze this year at the theme park’s event, An American Werewolf in London. A handful of selected media outlets piled into a waiting van and were driven to the park’s Lower Lot, where the maze has been built in the extended queue of the Jurassic Park attraction.

While Halloween certainly hangs heavy in the air, it was hard to ignore that it was over 90 degrees here in Los Angeles as we stood outside the facade of the maze – a perfect reproduction of the Slaughtered Lamb pub, as featured in the movie. Inside the maze, temperatures rose to probably close to 110 degrees as the finishing touches were being put on the attraction. We have utmost respect for the folks that have put the Halloween Horror Nights mazes together in really nasty heat the past several weeks; there are no fans, no ventilation, or reprieve from the oppressive temperatures within each maze.
