Posted in : Adventure

(added few years ago!)

Every few Halloweens we make a trip to Universal Studios to see what the movie makers have in store for the horror season. Universal rarely disappoints, and this year they’re adding a new attraction to the lineup – the Cabin in the Woods theme park attraction. As part of their 23rd annual Halloween Horror Nights, the park will be adding this attraction based off the 2012 film, and they are going all out on this one. Visitors will be able to walk through the forest, visit the completely built cabin, and even check out the cube cells. You will even be in the control room when Merman attacks. This sounds completely awesome. The Cabin in the Woods attraction will be opening up near the end of September, and will remain open for visitors until November 2nd.

Now the fully operational vehicle is hitting the auction block, set to sell to the highest bidder. Built by the team at Perry Oceanographic, the fully functional submersible is sure to fetch a pretty penny. Check out the scene from the movie below.
