This October, Orlando’s and Florida’s history is coming back to haunt you as Dark Horizon: Point of No Return will make it’s debut. At today’s Queen Mary presentation, the first few mazes and attractions were announced, along with the ports and zones. Each one take a pieces of Florida’s past and builds on the myths and history. The event also revealed some key characters that you will encounter along the way.
Here’s the line up so far:
Each haunted maze is located in a different land or zone of the haunt.
Akin to one of the early 1800’s pirate port’s in what is now Florida, this zone features the Bootlegger’s Bungalows, Walk the Plank Pub & Pier, Siren Stage, Dark Horizon Gift Shop, Shark Bites and the entrance to the Marketplace and Panic 4-D Maze Experience. The signature attraction at The Port is Ghostship haunted house. BEWARE: Use caution at all times while navigating your way through The Port under the command of Captain Killigrew and her deviously mad crew!
Avast ye! Rising to the surface, the spirits of the high seas set sail to wreak havoc at Dark Horizon. Also known as a phantom ship, a vessel with no living crew aboard; a common occurrence during pirate rule… This derelict ghost ship is found adrift with its Colonial crew seemingly missing or dead…Your commander orders you to board in search of survivors, loot and rations to sustain your own crew. Late to the looter’s party, you unwittingly become loot and rations yourselves. Lurking below deck are a band of crazed pirates and redcoats suffering from Botulism and starvation and left for dead. These deranged and infectiously diseased seamen stand between you and the safety and salvation of your own brigade. Will you live to tell the tale or will the Pirate Captain and her derelict crew be your demise?
Set in the early 1900’s when the Glades were mostly uncharted territory called 10,000 Islands, a place where thugs, gangsters and outlaws went to disappear. This virtually lawless land is home to The Outpost Pub and Gator Grub. The signature attraction in the Glades is Murder Island haunted house. BEWARE: This area is lorded over by Bloody (Ed) Watson’s band of derelict transients and pre-historic man-eating creatures.
In the sinister swamplands of the Everglades lies The 10,000 Islands amidst the mangrove-choked rivers. The area is a hotbed for murderers, ancient creatures and bizarre tales. Chatham Bend on Lost Man’s River – otherwise known as Murder Island, is the home of the infamous Bloody Ed Watson. Known for harvesting sugar cane, Bloody Watson made his fortune on the backs of transient labor. Knowing they wouldn’t be missed, instead of paying them at the end of the season, they pay the ultimate price and are never seen nor heard from again.. Body count on Murder Island: 57 and counting. Step back to the early 1900’s, come face to face with the brutality that shadowed 10,000 Islands and turned it to a grave of shocking terror.
