I might just have to deal with the long attraction lines at this years Halloween Horror Nights – the themes sound awesome!
AMC’s “The Walking Dead” will serve as the overall theme of Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort’s annual Halloween Horror Nights’ event and return as a maze for a second consecutive year. Event runs Sept. 20 through Nov. 2.
The parks are also developing attractions based on horror films “The Cabin in the Woods” and the recent remake of “The Evil Dead.”
“The Walking Dead” maze will be based on the third season of the show, set inside the West Georgia Correctional Facility, overrun by hordes of flesh-eating zombies, the surrounding woods and the town of Woodbury. The fourth season premieres Oct. 13, around when Halloween Horror Nights takes place.
“Both creative teams at Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando and Hollywood will painstakingly re-create several iconic moments from ‘The Walking Dead’ to give fans a chance to participate in an actual interactive experience,” said Greg Nicotero, executive producer and special effects makeup supervisor on the show. “It was a great joy to be able to share with fans those scary moments and frightening set pieces from our show. It is something that I’m very, very excited about, collaborating with this team to help to make the experience as authentic as possible. I want it to feel like they’re on the set with us!”
