Do you want to play a game?
Eight movies released with a total runtime of 760 minutes and people still cannot get enough of the gore, trauma and distress that is notoriously associated with the SAW franchise. The years have seen plenty of attractions popping up worldwide and for the first time ever, one has landed in the UAE!
Located in Motiongate Dubai - a Hollywood-inspired theme park situated in Dubai Parks and Resorts - the attraction consists of a five-minute maze featuring iconic traps from each of the franchise's eight movies.
We don't want to give much away but diehard fans will surely appreciate the attention to detail and if you love a good scare, then Billy the puppet will deliver. Groups of four are best but the maze can accomodate up to six guests.
The temporary attraction is one of two scare zones, part of the park's FRIGHT NIGHTS setup and runs every weekend from today till 3 November, 7 to 11pm. Guests must be 16 years of age or older to enter the maze alone, or a minimum of 14 years if with an accompanying parent.
The second scare zone features a fun meetup with fan-favourite zombies and monsters.
And so that kids don’t miss out on all the fun, child-friendly Spooktacular Halloween festivities will also be held at Hotel Transylvania during the day, including meet-and-greets with Hotel Transylvania characters Drac, Mavis, Murry and Co in the Columbia Zone. Families can also participate in trick or treating, face painting, storytelling and pumpkin crafts.
Tickets are available online for Dh175 for UAE residents and Dh245 for non-residents. Entrance to the SAW maze, as well as the scare zones are all included in the park ticket.
