It marks the first time in the 20 year history of the Halloween Horror Nights that Universal will be working with a television show in both of its parks.
Universal’s creative teams are working closely with AMC to create an authentic Walking Dead experience for visitors.There will be an elaborate maze full of walkers and “movie-quality sets.”
“With ‘The Walking Dead,’ we want to make fans of the series feel like they are literally walking in the footsteps of the show’s characters, experiencing all of the horrific events from the series just as they experienced them,” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood. “The goal is to make guests of Halloween Horror Nights feel like they are trapped in the world of ‘The Walking Dead,’ using all of the attention to detail and movie-quality production values that Halloween Horror Nights has become famous for. You’re no longer sitting on a couch, watching a show…you’re living it!”
The event begins September 21, 2012 at both parks. Ticket information can be found at their official website.
