Black Sabbath’s music is coming to life in what is being described as “an all-original, terrifying 3-D maze” at Universal Studios Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights.
“Black Sabbath: 13 3D” is based on the darkest lyrics from Black Sabbath’s biggest hit songs and the only attraction at the horror event to incorporate 3D video, will also include scenes inspired by the legendary band’s recently released Billboard #1 album, 13. A nightmarish landscape of doom will engulf guests as they enter “Black Sabbath: 13 3D” and traverse through horrifying graveyards, disturbing madhouses and bone-chilling battlefields.
Ozzy Osbourne said of the attraction “We were all really excited when Universal Studios Hollywood approached us about doing a 3D ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ maze based on our music. 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.”
Guests will come face to face with a heart-stopping Lucifer and his bride, blood-soaked dead bodies and bubbling pools of “radioactive water” while song’s inspired by Luke’s Wall, Iron Man, Paranoid, War Pigs, Electric Funeral and, of course, Black Sabbath violently penetrate the confines of the maze at high volume.
John Murdy, Creative Director for Universal Studios Hollywood, said “Very few bands can claim to have defined a genre of music but Black Sabbath’s remarkable influence in the evolution of Heavy Metal will go down in history. 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’.”
