For those who have done Sub Species I just thought of a follow-on maze that could probably work in the future. The story behind Sub Species is your a contestant/prisoner and you make it out alive obviously. You escape.
This would be my idea for a follow on sort of involving Phalanx Operatives like they are involved in Operation Lockdown!
Sub Species: Breakout
Backstory: Contestants have fled/escaped the sewer maze but have been caught by The Controller after a lengthy pursuit across the barren apocalyptic wasteland and taken to a prisoner facility.
Guests are hooded through the first part and seated while an actor walks in to break them mentally/psychologically/interrogate them.
Some shouting later at guests, loud bangs are heard (flashs/strobes to imitate flash bangs) & lots of gunfire follows (sound fx) phalanx operatives have surged the facility & killed the people in the room (switch doors for actors who are bloodied and dead looking), operatives then remove the hoods of the guests & they see bodies around. The rooms goes dark as the alarm has been triggered (alarm sound fx) and lock down kicks in in the facility and a couple of red revolving lights on the ceiling / hallways later in the maze.
The Controller sets in motion the lock down and the containment room is filled slowly with smoke (gas) to kill the contestants, the guests must move quickly!
The two phalanx operatives shout at the group to "lets go"/"follow me"/"single file" and begin to lead the group out of the prison, one in front leading & one at the back of the group (female audio saying Containment cells breached on level 2), the operatives hear something ahead, shout hold and give the fisted sign up signal, (the lock down malfunctions and accidentally releases some of the creatures from the sewer tunnels) 2 alien creatures take out the phalanx operatives from a side door, pushing them into the adjacent door, doors slam shut & lock with blood curdling screams coming from behind the closed doors.
The guests now are by themselves and once again have to make their way out of another series of tunnels and face people of the sewer dwelling community/the controller forces around every corner.
Tense sound track along with alarm fx continue throughout the maze gradually growing in tempo as it reaches a climax. Low lightning and smoke machines pump ever so gradually along the floors.
Ending could be anything really. 2 endings, on one side you make it out of the facility alive (hurrah!), the other ending you're in a room and meet The Controller (lights go out) and he orders his men to shoot you/feed on them (gunfire sound fx/air bursts or cannibalistic noises) and that's the end of the maze, you failed & you died (boo)!
