    In vein of This is the End, what's a non- horror IP that you've always thought would make a fun maze?

    Scary Movie(is it Horror? I’ve always thought of it as a comedy), Bates Motel, & Twin Peaks




    and The Room

    Edit: and Scream Queens even though it was rooted in horror it became more of a parody

    A maze inspired by Grimes' music (specifically her album Halfaxa) would be awesome too.

    True, Marilyn Manson would also be an awesome maze.

    Technically Non-Horror and technically something unique for Hollywood, but I'd love to see fairy tales represented for the west in some way. Whether Snow White, The Ice Queen, Alice's adventure in Wonderland, and more: I would love to see unique takes on classical tales like that.

    Another hope, is taking a page from Beowulf.

    My two cents

    Theres the obvious JP maze that many of us have asked for. Theres also a few things in Westworld that I think would make for really cool moments in a maze.

    JP is considered horror, granted, big budget, PG-13 horror.

    Alice Cooper actually has already been at Hollywood's event (and Orlando's, but that's not that praised), twice.

    I think the day's of Alice Cooper coming back, are over, but hell, I'd love to hope if they can work together for one more time.

    I still think Ghostbusters could be morphed into a dark humor house with legit jump scares rather easily, would run a constant 3-hour line.

    Beetlejuice might also work--have to use some of the dead from the waiting room--but scares might be harder to come by.

    Will never happen now that Disney owns the IP, but I always thought the (Marvel) Carnage house was a potentially fun idea, just poorly executed.

    I'd also like to add Mad Max and Black Swan to my list.

    I still think KISS and Marilyn Manson would be really cool mazes if we ever did Music IPs again.. same with the 3rd Alice Cooper maze :)

    Universal dropped having the Marvel rights for California I believe back in 07 (but @Chris can prove me wrong) for Hollywood. And I would assume DC Comics wouldn't be plausible due to Magic Mountain about 27 miles. And if we go on the level of the Universal/Disney issue of Marvel rights for DC, I would assume something similar is in-play, unless for particular reasons.

    __

    Allow me to add another odd choice, but Pink Floyd, and more specifically, The Wall, would be an outstanding choice, as it's an out-there type of story that if done in certain way's, could be rather unique and exciting.

    I'd say something in the vein of Return to Oz or Neverending Story type dark fantasies would be neat. Like a "made for children but also scared the bejeezus out of children" kind of maze.

    There's actually leverage in this. I've discussed it with someone who knows the details but there's a pick and choose type game that goes on with the DC properties, but I wouldn't entirely rule it out if Uni ever wanted to go that route.
