Yesterday, Universal Studios announced their 5th maze and the 3rd original maze for HHN 29 – Yeti: Terror of the Yukon.
Admittedly, this is the first original house I’m truly excited for. For those who attended HHN 28 and went through the Slaughter Sinema maze, they met the Yukon Yeti’s spiritual brother, the Swamp Yeti. And that thing was TERRIFYING. Huge and masterfully played by his scare-actors, that thing was a guaranteed pee-your-pants scare.
And if the marketing copy for the house is any indication, this guy will be just as terrifying (if not more) than his swamp cousin:
From the evil geniuses (they paid me to say that) who brought you Attack of the Swamp Yeti in last year’s grindhouse-themed Slaughter Sinema house comes a frightening new take on the fear-inducing folklore of the wild Yeti.Universal’s Official HHN Blog
So far, all the rumors are matching up (to some degree) with reality as a yeti house based on the Swamp Yeti has been rumored since HHN 28’s close. My prediction? You can almost bet on those Ghostbuster and House of 1000 Corpses houses unless something majorly falls through in these final months.
