Coming Summer 2016, enter the post-apocalyptic world of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” in an all-new year-round attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Prepare to fight for survival in a fully immersive journey as you navigate through a world overrun by hungry walkers. Follow in the footsteps of the human survivors as you battle your way through nightmarish iconic landscapes that bring the most popular cable TV show in history to life!
“There are moments from the television show that we’ll get a chance to recreate much more faithfully than we would in a maze,” Nicotero tells USA Today. “You’ll get some great opportunities to see things from Season 1 and some stuff from Seasons 3 and 4. It’s a little bit of a walk down memory lane for us…I love it. I think it says a lot that we’re getting an opportunity to be part of a Walking Dead experience that’s 365 days a year.”
AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has been a staple attraction during the annual Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights in both Hollywood and Orlando. There’s been both mazes and unique tour rides inspired by the show adapted by Robert Kirkman’s comic series.
My guess is that the old castle is being retooled for this event, but that’s just my own personal speculation.
