Freddy Krueger Returns to HHN at Universal

A third maze was announced by the good people at Universal for this year's Halloween Horror Nights extravaganza - A Nightmare on Elm Street: Never Sleep Again. The good news: There was a NOES maze in 2008, and it was awesome. The bad news: This maze - which promises to be "an all-new horror maze experience" - is based on the 2010 remake rather than the classic Freddy we all know and love. Here's a brief synopsis, via Bloody-Disgusting:
"A Nightmare on Elm Street: Never Sleep Again," will bring guests back on a nightmare journey to the town of Springwood, the scene of Freddy Krueger's unspeakable crimes. They'll wind through the ominously twisting corridors of the Barham Day Care Center, glimpse ghastly scenes of carnage among the young people of Springwood and face the ultimate showdown with Freddy in his infamous boiler room lair.
Sounds cool, but I can't help feeling a little apprehensive about the remake connection. Of course, I haven't seen the 2010 NOES yet, and maybe I should be a little more open-minded; X-Entertainment, one of my favorite websites, declared it "not the worst thing ever." (So presumably it's better than the Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw remakes then? What were your thoughts on the latest incarnation of A Nightmare on Elm Street? And are you looking forward to being tormented by Freddy at Universal this fall?
