New Mazes for 2016
Five Nights at Freddy’s
This year, Fright Dome at Circus Circus in Las Vegas, Nevada, is bringing Freddy to life in an all-new maze. No, we’re not talking about Freddy Kreuger. The maze will be inspired by “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” a popular online indie horror game. Here’s a description from Fright Dome:
Five Nights at Freddy’s is a series of horror-themed video games in which players takes on the role of an overnight security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a family restaurant and arcade. At night, the restaurant’s life-sized animatronic characters, including Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy, wander the restaurant. As the security guard, the player must keep a close watch over the premises, as surviving to 6am may prove to be the most difficult part of the job. Launched in 2014, the series includes three sequels and has been optioned by Warner Bros. for the development of a feature film. Striker Entertainment, the licensing agency handling the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise, was key in connecting Scottgames and Fright Dome to launch the October attraction.
In addition to “Freddy’s,” Fright Dome is debuting two other new mazes:
Krampus’ Not So Silent Night
Guests will enter the dark world of Krampus—the legendary horned demon counterpart to Santa Claus known for terrorizing and holding captives in his lair. High above The Adventuredome floor this house features high-tech FX, customized characters, snow and memorable Christmas smells. The new maze is a collaboration with Gary J. Tunnicliffe, an FX professional responsible for makeup, props, and special effects for more than 60 feature films including franchises such as HELLRAISER, HALLOWEEN, CANDYMAN, EXORCIST, BLADE, SCREAM, and many more.
Described as an “isolation-style house,” Ouija is an up-charge attraction that will be available only to guests who have purchased a fast pass or VIP tour.
Enter the séance with others if you dare but be forewarned… this house chooses who will enter next. Just when you thought there was safety in groups you’ll find yourself separated and left all ALONE to navigate. The abandoned hospital is seemingly harmless until you realize all of the spirits – good and bad- have been awakened within.
Clownz: Cotton Candy, Carnage and Chaos!
Enter the neon, luminescent world of crazed clowns in this nightmarish world of painted freaks and jesters gone wickedly wild!
Wasteland 2: Rises of the Mecha-Saur
Back by popular demand with new sinister twists Fright Dome’s own post-apocalyptic house returns! Enter a world where the inhabitants battle carnivorous butchers, nomadic mechanics and more!
This year’s scare zones include Clown Havoc, Cornstalkers, VooDoo (Mardi Gras of the Dead), Cornstalkers, Fright Club, and Freak Show.
Fright Dome opens September 30 and runs various nights of the week through October 31 .
