AMC’s The Walking Dead has the honor of becoming the first TV series to be featured at both Universal Studios’ Orlando and Hollywood resorts’ Halloween Horror Nights events. Visitors to the theme parks will have to make their way through haunted mazes, fighting off flesh-eating walkers during the annual Halloween event.
The haunted mazes will feature movie-quality sets that bring to life scenes from the popular show, complete with mobs of walkers.
“We want people to experience the same terror of the walker-filled reality our characters faced in seasons one and two – and will continue to face in our third season,” stated Greg Nicotero, Co-Executive Producer and Special Effects Make-up Artist for the series. “Our collaboration with Universal Studios’ creative teams is exciting as we work to truly capture the essence of the show.”
“The Walking Dead puts real people in incredibly horrific situations where they experience true, raw fear, and guests at Halloween Horror Nights experience the same thing,” said Jim Timon, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Universal Orlando Resort. “We can’t wait to merge the two powerful concepts together.”
