I assume Saw will be the theme throughout the event and will be featured in a house, a scare zone, and on the tram tour. I heard a rumor about Michael Myers being used at Hollywood's event.

 

I'm pretty sure they'll pull the SAW theme off like last year where Freddy was the main star, but still had all the New Line mazes uneffected with Freddy. I'm also pretty sure that both events will feature a Wolfman house for promotion of the movie (last year the tram tour had footage from the movie, and it looked decent) but Hollywood has their semi-permanent House of Horrors to play with which has most of the Universal monsters already, including the Wolfman. It should be intresting to see what they do.

I've got to wonder if the Saw Maze in Brea this past Halloween was a test to see if the franchise has maintained its popularity. It was amazing and I'd be happy even if Universal Hollywood's saw maze was nearly identical to the 2008 version, but I'm sure we're looking at a whole new creation. Expect this one to be highly interactive. Saw Maze and a new Halloween Disneyland Fireworks Show this year! Is it October yet!?!!?

What I remember reading was the Brea maze is completely seperate endevour. The guy basically did it all himself and just borrowed the name and likeness but had no help from Lionsgate. On the flipside however, Lionsgate would get nothing, profit wise, from the maze. I'm more intrested if it's coming back this year or if Lionsgate would stop him this year with Universal taking a stab (or bear trap) at the franchise.

^A few months ago, there was a advertisement for the Maze in Brea. It was havinf a special showing of the maze...in April or May...haha. I was thinking this was some sort of soft opening (a bit early though). I could see it coming back, it was a great maze, I loved it!
