The Welcoming: Be Chosen
The Beornen made their entrance into Mutiny Bay during Halloween 2017 when their village appeared in the Courtyard. Throughout Scarefest they would welcome guests into their fold and draw them into the mysterious celebrations of the woods surrounding the resort.
The group, who have shunned technology, may be averse to those they consider to abuse the natural world but they are more than willing to welcome outsiders into their midst as they gather to celebrate. But what part will you and the other Outsiders play in a ritual where the living world crosses over with the dead?
The Welcoming was a brand new maze for 2017. Located in the Courtyard at the heart of Mutiny Bay, it took over the space once used for the BBQ and Pirates of Mutiny Bay show, which had been shuttered since 2014.
The mazeincluded various of the features of the attractions it replaced, including the two existing canopy structures as well as the old Pirate Show stage, which received significant modifications to become one of the maze's most memorable set pieces.
The maze ran for two seasons, before it was replaced by Darkest Depths, the park's new family maze, which took guests deep below the waves.
