The Thing was one of the houses at Halloween Horror Nights 21. It was based on the 2011 movie of the same name. Variety Magazine claimed the house would be one of the most immersive movie houses ever done at the event. The house was located in Soundstage 23 along with Nightingales: Blood Prey.

DescriptionEdit

Inspired by the new thriller, paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers in an isolated Antarctic outpost as they are infected, one by one, by a horrifying creature from another planet. In a place where there is nothing, they found something.

ExperienceEdit

QueueEdit

While the queue for The Thing itself lacks any sort of decor or entertainment, the trailer for the film was played on the concert stage for guests in line for Winter's Night.

HouseEdit

Guests enter to find themselves in the middle of falling snow as they approach Thule Station, the Norwegian research station in Antarctica. Entering through a damaged doorway, you enter into the rec center. The lights have gone dark, apparently due to power loss, and as you pass by the pool table Jonas appears with a small Thing attached to his face, being to assimilate him. Carter appears from behind the bar, his flamethrower sparking as he attempts to get it to work. Passing into the next hallway, strobes flash as an animatronic four-legged fusion of Edvard and Adam bursts through a hole in the wall.

One of the small Things, apparently grown from an infected arm, has been pinned to the wall with an axe. An infected Juliette attacks from another room. Through another hole in the wall, Henrik is seen being impaled by a harpoon-like tendril and pulled into the wall away from the line.

Entering the laboratory, the burned Thing that had been discovered in the ice is lying on the table, Henrik's corpse staring out from its autopsied belly. Another infectee appears from a side room and another from behind a filing cabinet, and the Thing on the table heaves.

The kitchen seems unoccupied until another Thing bursts through the double doors. Strobes flash as Kate appears from her hiding place among the shelves and fires a pistol at it, driving it back.

In the radio room, Juliette appears from behind a wall to attack. Colin, unable to handle the stress, slits his throat and sprays blood on the guests. Continuing into the storeroom, a partially-transformed team member leaps between the shelves and leans down to swipe at the line below him.

In the storage room where the original Thing was held, it's broken from its block of ice and clings to the ceiling as Derek fires a shotgun at it. Another infectee is hidden behind some barrels on the other side of the room.

Passing through a short hallway that smells of oil, you find yourself entering the inside of the crashed UFO that brought the monster to Earth. A massive Thing attacks from a small alcove as Carter attempts to use his flamethrower on it, and the infected Juliette appears for one final scare.
