Universal Studios Hollywood has just announced a new Scream-based ride as part of their "Halloween Horror Nights".
Dubbed "Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life", the experience will aim to replicate Scream 4's "movie-within-a-movie" theme, unleashing Ghostface on the studio backlot, introducing guests to the fictional Stab slasher film franchise and offering them a chance to take a peek at Stab 8, said to be â€œshooting on location on the backlot.â€ Details from the official press release are as follows:
â€œTerror Tram: Scream 4 Your Lifeâ€ casts guests as victims in this living horror film and elevates the â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ experience to astounding new levels of blood-curdling realism.
To create the ultimate â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ nightmare, Universal Studios Hollywood assembled a horror â€œdream teamâ€ of filmmakers and stars who are serving as creative consultants to Universalâ€™s Creative Director, John Murdy. The team includes director, writer, producer and actor Eli Roth, who will present the new maze, â€œEli Rothâ€™s Hostel: Hunting Season,â€ the legendary rocker Alice Cooper, who will present â€œAlice Cooper: Welcome to My Nightmare,â€ and multi-platinum recording artist and filmmaker Rob Zombie who returns with â€œRob Zombieâ€™s House of 1000 Corpses: In 3D ZombieVision.â€ â€œThe Thing: Assimilation,â€ inspired by Universal Picturesâ€™ upcoming thriller, will add to the Hollywood horror clout.
â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ 2011 will bring unprecedented star power to an array of unrivaled, film production quality mazes uniquely themed to todayâ€™s most definitive horror properties and deliver the most compelling, spine-chilling, haunted attractions. All-new terror filled â€œscare zones,â€ original shows and the popular â€œTerror Tram: Scream 4 Your Lifeâ€ will be among the â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ offerings.
The theme parkâ€™s favorite thrill-ride attractions will also remain open for â€œHalloween Horror Nights,â€ one with a menacing twist. â€œJurassic ParkÂ® In the Darkâ€ makes its seasonal debut, while guests can still enjoy favorites like â€œThe Simpsons RideTMâ€ and â€œRevenge of the MummySM â€“ The Ride.â€
