Been seeing a lot of positive responses for this one! There's the occasional "so are you going to do mazes on something actually scary?" But overall, very positive.
Personally, this is a huge cult favorite in my house and one of the not-so-obscure movies I can reference and people generally, somehow, know exactly what I'm talking about. Somewhere down the road, it kinda went from weird cult movie to a mainstream 80s classic. Maybe because it was on cable so much in the 90s, I don't know, but it's great to see it so beloved now. And great to see something we've been asking for for so long finally be made.
 
While this maze will probably not be scary, HHN is far more interesting to me when they’re trying to tell a story, rather than just basic scares. That’s why the soft horror stuff and the less jumpscary movies tend to be fan favorites.

According to twitter right now more info is being released about the house, so far this was said:

"The circus has come to town! At least that’s what the unsuspecting citizens of Crescent Cove think when they discover a mysterious big top has been erected in the middle of an empty forest on the outskirts of town..."

"...But it doesn’t take long for the residents of this sleepy California suburb to discover the true nature of the Big Top and the nefarious deeds taking place inside it! The circus big top is actually an alien spaceship housing an army of Killer Klowns from Outer Space!"

"Welcome to Killer Klowns from Outer Space, a new maze inspired by the 1988 film that became a cult classic! You’ll venture inside the Killer Klowns’ Space Ship & discover the “Refrigerator Room” where the Klowns are storing their human prey inside Cotton Candy Cocoons!"

"Next you’ll venture into the community of Crescent Cove, and discover the Killer Klowns nefarious plot to abduct the locals...and dismantle their law enforcement apparatus!"

"Finally you'll wind up at a closed Amusement Park, the perfect place for the Killer Klowns to hide the nerve center of their operation! Featuring a classic retro 80’s feel, Killer Klowns from Outer Space will have you screaming, and laughing, to death!"

Dang, those two responses just made me infinitely more excited. It sounds like they're not shying away from the zanier aspects of the movie.

Now someone ask him if there's a clown in an invisible car!

Bit sad to see blocks not getting knocked, but hey; what more can you do.
I guess part of it is that it'd be tough to do with a live performer, and we probably only would've seen the aftermath or a shadow projection effect. Still, boxing glove clown should at least be a scare.

Somehow this just jumped very high on my most anticipated list. This sounds like old school HHN with a goofy twist. I know most are worried about the venue, but this property and the way it sounds, being in one of the remaining (or maybe the only remaining?) old school venues makes me giddy.

Yeah, its pretty tricky to pull off, but i was thinking they could have shown the aftermath and had essentially a double scare, with Shorty being the primary scare and the headless corpse of the biker acting as the secondary when you think Shorty is the only actor. Still glad to hear a lot of iconic moments made it in, even if Knock My Block Off was my personal favorite.
