Description: The SAW series – one of the highest grossing horror franchises of all time – makes its terrifying return to Halloween Horror Nights. Bringing the blockbuster’s most twisted traps to life in an all-new original maze, it will also feature a first look at the upcoming eighth SAW film, Jigsaw, in theaters Oct. 27. SAW: The Games of Jigsaw will test your physical and psychological limits as you come face-to-face with mastermind Jigsaw and his collection of infamous traps from the entire SAW film series.

Thoughts: Sigh. I had such high hopes for this one and was let down so hard. I had attended another SAW maze a few years back at Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights and I absolutely loved it so I expected the same level of fear to strike my heart this year. However, this one seemed to be missing the scare factor big time. Though I did enjoy seeing different vignettes from the past SAW films, as well as images from the upcoming Jigsaw movie, in the end, this maze felt short overall. However, I will always enjoy seeing Jigsaw riding on his little bicycle, he’s just so damn cute!
