We’re thinking this will be way more fast-paced than the TV show.
The United Kingdom’s Thorpe Park, the home of SAW: The Ride, just announced this week that The Walking Dead: The Ride will be added to the park this coming Spring!
Yes, this will be the world’s first “Walking Dead” coaster. The premise?
“Thorpe Park Resort is overrun by Walkers and there is but one goal: survive. Making it to the sanctuary of the Safe Zone is vital for salvation. Located at the centre of the Island, navigate your way to the safety of the indoor bunker – but be warned. All signs point to an imminent invasion of Walkers, so keep your head down and move quickly for your best chance of staying alive.”
The ride will recreate iconic moments and locations from the hit AMC series, and Thorpe’s John Burton tells The Independent it’s aiming to deliver maximum terror.
“It’s 15 out of 10 on the scare scale,” he told the site. “‘We are combining physical and digital effects because it is going to be dark, so we are going to make the most of that. The darkness acted as a canvas for us. We have incorporated the latest in special effects, lighting, smells and even touch elements to create a terrifyingly unique atmosphere.”
Spring is almost here… look for the coaster to open up in April!
