SFMM Justice League/Suicide Squad/Aftermath 2 Tour!


Recommended Posts

Today we got a quick tour of the beginnings of Justice League: Battle for Metropolis and the eventual transformation of the area in front of Riddler's Revenge into Metropolis, along with a Fright Fest preview showing off the new Aftermath 2:Chaos Rising maze and the Suicide Squad scare zone. Keep in mind that vertical construction hasn't started on Justice League and although the plans for Metropolis are pretty much set, there are still some details that need to be approved before they move forward. Also,the last details for Fright Fest are still being put in place, so forgive me if the pictures are sparse for Suicide Squad.

 

Okay, JL:BFM is basically dirt right now, the old theater is gone and everything is marked off ready for construction. The area around Riddler's Revenge will become Metropolis, a complete retheme including removal of the rock wall, removal of some of the planters, and renaming the BBQ restaurant to something appropriate to DC. As for Tidal Wave, at this point there is no word on retheming it to a DC character (Aqua Man?). SFMM was kind enough to show us a 3D rendering of what the final area should look like using the goggles from The New Revolution, very cool! In any case, expect a very well done area similar to DC Universe, with a few easter eggs for for comic book nerds. Oh, and I heard beer mentioned, so that's another thing to look forward to!

 

Aftermath 2: Chaos Rising is an update on the old Aftermath that used to occupy the space where JL is being built. The new maze will be Fright Fest's largest ever outdoor maze, new concepts, including a cohesive storyline, two different paths to take, and an in-maze scare zone. The experience starts in the queue, with audio getting you into the right mind set for your "evacuation", the maze is very large and gives you the impression of walking through rubble rather than being pushed in a directions by walls. At some point in your evac, you get exposed to the virus, and the maze changes to fit that storyline. A little farther, the infected start to turn, and as you are guided to the cure and safety...do you survive? I don't know, but considering that the maze empties out into a scare zone, I think the odds are the rescue was a bust. In any case, the maze tells a story start to finish, lending to a more immersive experience.

 

Okay, Suicide Squad will be a scare zone. Now, as weird as that sounds, for those who saw the movie you know it had a voodoo witch (Enchantress) who turned people into her minions, and not just that, but scary looking monsters that killed or captured anything in their path as her brother created and army, etc., etc. So, those are your monsters, also from the movie Harley Quinn, Joker, and Killer Croc, who will be available for photo ops in several set pieces resembling the movie around DC Universe. The only scene we got to see was the crashed helicopter, which was still being assembled. Also, the movie soundtrack will be featured and there will be light/video mapping to go with it. We didn't get to see it, so you'll have to experience it yourself.

 

Well, that's what I got out of it, Justice League slated to open spring 2017 and Fright Fest starts this weekend September 17th. And pictures...

New dark ride goes here somewhere, in the dirt.

This whole area will be Metropolis.

Lots of dirt, makes people smile.

"Aftermath 2: Chaos Rising" is located in the area where DejaVu used to be, next to Apocolypse.

This.

The queue will have a elements to get you in the right mind set before entering the maze.

Yay, your saved?

I need the wheels off this truck.

SAM_7398.JPG.7057439e811b8dcdfa1cb78ee0d84201.JPG

Looks like an apocolypse...that IS Apocolypse...No, I mean the pile of rubble...it's rough, but I wouldn't say it's rubble just yet...

SAM_7400.JPG.0640535632192333bafe3ec86956625d.JPG

This guy is possibly infected, possibly needs a cab.

SAM_7401.JPG.a846924d2356842f18766a5993bd546b.JPG

Too bad, looks like he was having a good hair day.

SAM_7402.JPG.13c223a7810621a827499713bcf6eddb.JPG

Childrens toys make excellent barriers against zombies.

SAM_7403.JPG.b12cff342b89e579516421fb7c8649d0.JPG

At least he didn't get a head injury. I call dibs on his brain, for some reason I now crave brains.

SAM_7404.JPG.921b9dde29ea7726acbf6f942fe16099.JPG

Post apocalyptic bathtubs fill the street!

SAM_7405.JPG.b45bf0730f939dc36fb480fe5c2ad976.JPG

Beware! The cocks have escaped their pen and become infected!

SAM_7406.JPG.df0207b7486bdc690c9b5fa29974faef.JPG

Funny, I don't miss them at all.

SAM_7407.JPG.041e32e8f2cc3ae6891ef29d8b3886e0.JPG

My kid made one of these is school, pretty sure it's supposed to be a turkey

SAM_7408.JPG.05be985f136ad9a97cf8f42e3ffdbc5e.JPG

Nothing good ever comes of opening cool looking puzzle boxes.

SAM_7409.JPG.6e1fe7bbf4a2cbb6047ca361a24ad1c7.JPG

This guy has obviously been in a pie eating contest.

SAM_7410.JPG.3dbb5340b47ff6ef68c5c6a388ecc35c.JPG

Apparently the chickens were not the only farm animals randomly driving through the city.

SAM_7411.JPG.223e1651820f8c77d0b384791511d502.JPG

In this reality, they all drive AMC Gremlins.

The virus turns your insides into foam. On the bright side you don't need couch cussions anymore..

SAM_7414.JPG.dad68d477de37d3aa12b99da5590ff34.JPG

This open area is basically a scare zone inside of the maze. There's deffinatly an exit, but how to get there?

SAM_7417.JPG.b85e493c71112f25da1f9cc793449428.JPG

The virus also rusts classic cars, so make sure you clear coat before the zombie virus hits.

SAM_7420.JPG.e31be1ab413e69c823760ef269ed3d22.JPG

So, I'm guessing this plane crashed, because it um...had no wings?

SAM_7422.JPG.25b7cef5447a78ce3e0869d3431ff2b3.JPG

Themeing! I think...could be a pile of rocks...I mean, it is a pile of rocks, but it could be zombie themed rocks.

SAM_7423.JPG.1651044886c331f469262e84059ab75c.JPG

Um, a popcorn popper maybe?

SAM_7424.JPG.f9d3f1e2100a833e47611bcc610670c2.JPG

Better from this angle, it's deffinatly, um...I have no idea.

Not sure what's happening behind the blue tarp, but Mr.Panda doesn't look happy.

SAM_7428.JPG.d1b1d38a4121ea2d7777896bb73999cd.JPG

Warning to the ladies, this is what happens when you wear giant stripper shoes at the playground. Total safety hazard.

SAM_7429.JPG.1e0ca63e357f4c54d4f31876c01218af.JPG

This is a scout, on of the best 4X4's ever made, that is all.

SAM_7434.JPG.129fe615f765f205b8bef9cf6798eba3.JPG

So, at this point some are infected and some aren't and those that are are starting to turn. Yes this guy is frightining, no he's not in the maze.

SAM_7436.JPG.91037ffcc5fe2e2492bebd1656fded1a.JPG

These guys didn't make it.

Great report, I love seeing behind the scenes of different Halloween events from places I have never been to. I love the idea of anything Suicide Squad, one of my all time favorite movies already, wish I could get there to get pictures with Harley Quinn, shocked they won't have Deadshot as part of the picture opportunity either, especially over Killer Croc. Nonetheless, great pictures.
