Universal Studios have created a Purge Maze for Halloween Horror Nights, the annual night time event at Universal Resorts – this year, it's a Haunted Maze based on the first Purge movie.
As reported by Forbes, this haunted maze is modelled after the first Purge film, which will come alive as The Purge surges across the theme park in its inaugural outing. It will reportedly place guests "at the heart of a controversial sociological experiment empowered by the New Founding Fathers of America."
Last year's Halloween Horror Nights featured mazes based on Saw, The Shining, and many other horror films.
The Purge is an American horror franchise, consisting of four films and a television series. The films are based on a future dystopian America, where all crime is made legal once a year. The Purge series has received a generally mixed critical reception and has grossed over $447 million in the worldwide box office against a combined budget of $35 million.
The rules for the annual Purge are as follows:
- Sirens blare throughout the land to signal the start and end of The Purge.
- All police, fire, and medical emergency services remain unavailable or suspended for the twelve-hour Purge.
- Government officials with "authorisation levels" of ranking 10 or higher are granted immunity (revoked in Election Year to legalise the murder of a political opponent).
- Weapons of "Class 4" and below are permitted for use while "Class 5" weaponry (explosive devices such as grenades, rocket launchers, bazookas, etc., weapons of mass destruction, and viral/biological and chemical agents) is prohibited.
- Public hanging is the penalty for violators of any rules.
