Another exciting Halloween Horror Nights maze announcement is here! For the very first time, Black Sabbath’s darkest lyrics from their biggest hits will be brought to life in a terrifying haunted 3D maze at Universal Studios Hollywood, opening September 20th. You can see Ozzy, Tony, Geezer with HHN creative director John Murdy make the announcement in this video.
We’ve got another maze to talk about! Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights event will feature a new maze built around all things Black Sabbath!
“Black Sabbath: 13 3D,” the latest maze, has immortalized the rock group’s dark, occult and apocalyptic-themed lyrics in a terrifying adventure. The maze is based on the darkest lyrics from the group’s biggest hits–which includes “Luke’s Wall,” “Iron Man,” “Paranoid,” “War Pigs,” “Electric Funeral” and “Black Sabbath”– and is the only attraction at the horror event to include 3D video and scenes from the band’s recently released Billboard #1 album, “13.”
Maze-goers will walk through scary graveyards, horrifying madhouses and terrifying battlefields. Not only that, but guests will come face to face with Lucifer and his bride, bloody dead bodies and pools of “radioactive water.” The maze will open Sept. 20.
“We were all really excited when Universal Studios Hollywood approached us about doing a 3D ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ maze based on our music,” said Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osbourne. “I’ve seen the drawings of what it will look like when it’s finished and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to walk through it on opening night in September.”
“Very few bands can claim to have defined a genre of music but Black Sabbaths’ remarkable influence in the evolution of Heavy Metal will go down in history,” said John Murdy, Creative Director for Universal Studios Hollywood. “Tony Iommi’s dark, iconic riffs, Ozzy Osbourne’s haunting vocals and Geezer Butler’s foreboding lyrics provide the perfect soundtrack for ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and endless inspiration for our new haunted attraction ‘Black Sabbath 13 3D’.”
