Queue and Facade[edit | edit source]
Guests would enter the queue across from the New York Public Library. The queue followed a road that led to a series of loops that looped to the right of Soundstage 24. After the guests went through the loops, they would go around the soundstage and enter a door.
Entering the soundstage, guests would be lead into a large empty room with a walkway that led to the Book of the Dead on a stand, while dialogue clips from the original film play in the background. The next room featured enlarged replicas of the pages found in the Book of the Dead, leading up to a colossal recreation of the "Evil Dead" logo.
Haunted House[edit | edit source]
After that, guests arrived in the first room of the cabin, where a possessed Mia attacks guests. Guests are then go out into the forest where Mia's possession is shown (the Tree Scene in Evil Dead). Back into the cabin, guests find all of the teenagers bloodied and on the floor, where another Mia strikes from the opposite wall. The following rooms show all of the deaths of the teenagers (besides Mia), which in turn leads to the resurrection of The Abomination. The final scene shows the cabin on fire with The Abomination on the guests right and Mia with a chainsaw attacking from the left.
